Brianna Parrott, NCTMB, LMT
My name is Brianna, everyone calls me Bri. I graduated from the Northern Virginia School of Therapeutic Massage in 2008 and have had the sincere privilege of being a Licensed Massage Therapist ever since. Being a problem solver and helper by nature with an innate drive to heal, holistically, I was lead to Therapeutic Massage, for which I am extremely grateful. Through continued education during my years as a LMT, I specialize in several modalities: Swedish/Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release, Prenatal, Trigger point, Active and Passive Stretching, Sports, Breath direction I may use one or many modalities according to each person’s individual therapeutic needs and problem areas. As every person is unique, so too every therapeutic massage. I have a gentle and intuitive approach to bodywork, promoting muscle and client relaxation for the most optimal and effective results (I find this approach is also extremely effective for deep tissue and sports). Following the session, I suggest specific stretches for client’s to utilize at home between sessions to maintain and reinforce the many benefits gained. Along with comfort and safety, Postural Alignment is my main focus as a LMT, encouraging mind and body connect, awareness, healthy energy flow, healing, confidence, empowerment and freedom in the movement of your form with ease. As the muscular system aligns and heals,
so does one’s overall sense of well being. Allowing for a life lived as pain-free possible.

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.
