Sarah Cawelti is a CAMTC certified massage practitioner who has been practicing since 2008. She combines several modalities to create unique services tailored to each client’s specific needs. Sarah uses deep tissue and trigger-point therapy to deeply penetrate muscle tissue, allowing for the release of tension, knots, and scar tissue.

Sarah discovered massage at the age of twelve while perusing books in her local library. She fell in love with the idea of healing through touch. She read everything she could find on the topic and practiced on anyone who would let her. Sarah went to massage school at the LA Vocational Institute in 2008 and became a trained massage therapist. Since leaving school, her love of massage has grown as she has witnessed how massage heals not just the body, but the mind and soul, as well. She has been fortunate enough to work in a variety of situations – from high-end spas to chiropractic offices. These experiences have allowed her to learn deep relaxation skills as well as to practice therapeutic massage. She has helped clients recover from injuries and manage chronic pain; she has supported women with therapies particular to pregnancy and post-natal stresses.
