In 2010 Sara graduated from Everest Institute with honors.  She also studied sports medicine and athletic training at Linfield College for two years.  Before starting Healing Hummingbird Therapeutic Massage, Sara worked at Focus Fusion Massage and Wellness in Hubbard, the Oregon Massage Clinic in Newberg, The Ultimate Tan and MedSpa in Newberg, a Chiropractic office in Sherwood, and began her massage career at Massage Envy in Lake Oswego. She is certified in Medical Massage, which is an intensive four day class on treatment work for injuries and pain management. She is also certified in Table Thai Massage, also known as "lazy man's yoga". 

Massage is something that I have loved since I was a kid.  I remember being seven or eight years old, rubbing my Aunt Becky’s shoulders when she would feel a migraine coming on.  And the rest is history.  I aim to relieve pain in every massage I give.  I customize each massage to fit the individual’s needs to treat acute and chronic pain, and I like to incorporate a variety of massage techniques in each session including Deep Tissue, Medical Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Swedish and Muscle Energy.”

I loved that Sara took the time to discuss what areas I was wanting her to focus on and provide a relaxing and comfortable massage that really helped me feel better! I can't wait to schedule my next one!

Sara finds the root of the problem and addresses it very skillfully. I have been in numerous car crashes and just weird freak accidents the have left many a Doctor scratching their head. Sara takes a complicated medical condition one layer at a time. Sara has incredible insights in what to work on to alleviate the problem. Sara is getting me back on my feet with less pain every week.

Sarah is always very welcoming and friendly. She does an amazing job on my massage, and fits my mood, if I want to talk, we talk, if I just want to chill, that is fine too. The room is always waiting, the music is soothing. An overall wonderful experience.
