As a certified massage therapist and a health educator, I welcome you to this journey towards vitality -- a return to your best self.
My name is Sarah Woods. I have been a certified massage therapist since 2008 when I graduated from the National Holistic Institute (NHI) in San Jose, California. Because of my passion for massage, and to better serve my clients, in 2016 I completed an additional 450 hour Advanced Neuromuscular Program from NHI. I absolutely love what I do; it is a joy to help people feel and achieve their best.
Empower and Heal
What I Believe
I first discovered massage as a young, energy-filled child who could not go to sleep. After experiencing the almost miraculous benefits massage seemed to offer with calming my nervous system throughout my youth, I enrolled into massage school right out of high school. Now having been in the field for fifteen years, massage continues to profoundly benefit my life: a calmer mind, reduced pain, greater range of motion, and improved sleep. I now find great meaning and enjoyment in helping others lead healthier, happier, pain free lives.
