Sarah finds that Ayurvedic oil treatments, energy work/Neurovascular Therapy and Ayurvedic bodywork treatments appeal to veterans of massage as well as people just beginning their journey of healing. Sarah feels a synergy with flower essences, gemstone minerals and aromatherapy and is happy to add those treats to any session. Herbs and bodywork may form a crucial role in helping you shift and change your life so that your body/mind/spirit can thrive and heal.

She empowers the client to become their own practitioner and understand how their conditions, symptoms and treatment protocols may change throughout the seasons and stages of their lives.
