Staying healthy is my long term interest. I have traveled to many countries including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and Switzerland, and have met people from almost every latitude and longitude. Skeletal muscle disorder is pandemic. Skeletal muscle problems affect one’s gait, body posture, and mobility, and prevent people from reaching the bliss of good health. Massage is an ancient healing art in China. It is practiced amongst family members to reduce muscle soreness. Massage relaxes and unwinds the body, and improves sleep quality. In early 2018 I initiated a community massage program to treat people with chronic back pain, to correct body posture and gait. I believe proper deep tissue massage along with nutrient-dense food slow down or reverse the progress of many musculoskeletal diseases. Recently, I volunteered one month of my time in Norway to help a patient with motor neuron disease and polyneuropathy. This is a patient who could not lie prone or sideways on a massage bed. Most of the patient’s upper limb muscles had degenerated, and the lower limbs were immobile. After giving the patient four weeks of massage, the patient gets up to walk, cycles on a stationary bike, and the patient’s edema has vanished. I specialize in Acupoints, Myofascial Release, Trigger Points, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular, Swedish, Cupping, Cranial Sacral, and Essential Oils. Each individual is different, so let me know what area(s) of your body needs to work on, and I’ll customize a massage program just for you.

Sara Moreau, LMT
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), certified in the states of NY, HI and VA. I went to school at The Center for Natural Wellness – School of Massage Therapy, in NY. I graduated in 2007 and began my career there, upon doing so. In 2010 my husband and I to moved Hawaii. There, I worked on Hickam Air Force Base for 6 years. In 2016 we relocated once again to the beautiful state of Virginia. I am a strong believer in the healing powers of therapeutic touch, energy work and the use natural remedies. It is with great respect, enjoyment and pride, that I am able to provide these life enriching benefits. As a massage therapist I listen to my clients to customize any one of my practiced modalities to focus on the area(s) that are causing discomfort and are in need of work. These practiced modalities and skills include: Swedish Massage, Deep-Tissue Massage (Neuromuscular Therapy – NMT and Trigger Point Therapy), Myofascial Release (MFR), Prenatal Massage (2nd & 3rd trimester), Cupping (including facial application), Sports Massage, Aromatherapy, Foot Reflexology, and traditional Opu Huli Lomi Lomi. Massage tools I can use during sessions include: Cups, Synergy Stones, and The Fascia Blaster. In Hawaii I was blessed with the opportunity to receive guidance from a great Kahuna on the Island of Oahu. I decided to learn traditional Opu Huli Lomi Lomi from Karen Leialoha Carroll at Kapuaokalani Academy of Hawaiian Soulistic Healing. This is a light massage, using sweeping forearm strokes on the body. Styles of Lomi Lomi vary depending on what Island you’re on. Opu Huli style started on Maui and it means, “turned stomach”. So Opu Huli Lomi Lomi is a massage to put the stomach back into alignment. Because a turned stomach displaces a woman’s uterus, women with Opu Huli tend to have a tilted uterus. It can cause difficulties in attempting to conceive a child. During Opu Huli Lomi Lomi not only is the physical body worked on but the spiritual body as well. ~Mahalo “Nurturing yourself is not selfish – it’s essential to your survival and your well-being.” Renee Peterson Trudeau

Jackie is a certified Craniosacral Therapist, Reiki and Soma Pi; she works with the customer to assist the body’s self-correcting mechanisms. She is fluent in 5 languages including English, French and African dialects. As a therapist, my goal is to provide excellent service, as it has been an integral part of my success in the past. I believe being attentive to my clients’ needs and committed to their satisfaction. I feel that everybody is different and therefore everybody’s needs are different. That is why I use a combination of different techniques in my practice. Through integrative therapeutic touch, I hope I can help my clients nourish their bodies, replenish their souls, and help them find joy in their life. Cranial Sacral therapy is one of the keys to vibrant health. Stress in its many forms can rob us of our ability to fend off disease. It is a proven way to reduce/relieve the negative impacts of stress and to keep the vital energy within us strong.
