Sarah - Owner, LMT, RYT, Reiki Levels 1 & 2 Certified
The seeds of my journey into the world of wellness were planted after experiencing the positive and profound effects of yoga on my mental and emotional state. I thought, "if I can feel better in my body and mind, others can too".
"And, maybe I can help".
After receiving my yoga teacher training in Pittsburgh, PA with Lynn Rescigno my curiosity of the breath/body connection continued to grow. I went on to graduate from the International Spa Institute in Blufton, SC where I worked for some time before returning home.
I attribute my unique and therapeutic massage style to having spent my early massage days working on Hilton Head Island, where I learned from seasoned therapists and was encouraged to treat the therapy as something sacred.
Healing Roots Massage & Wellness Center opened its doors in the Spring of 2017. Each day I allow my intuition and trust in the universe to guide this process, with the intention of creating a space for others to experience relief of physical, mental and emotional distress, as well as find a connection to their Self.
Above all else, my work is compassionate. I'm empathetic to the challenges and stresses of life - both the big and the small. With awareness that much physical pain is a manifestation of unresolved emotional distress, my work is shaped in a way that addresses the whole Self- physical, mental and emotional bodies included. Clients can expect thorough and meaningful bodywork in a safe, intimate and easeful space.
Additional Training and Education: Prior to my massage career, I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a degree in Hospitality Management. Since beginning my journey as a holistic practitioner I've been attuned in Levels 1 & 2 Reiki under private instruction in Pittsburgh, PA with additional attunements from Deborah Thackarh of Touch of Grace, and Amanda Palmineri of Lifted Reiki. I received my certification for Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra with Jennifer Reis in Boston, MA and soon after, completed Myofascial Release 1 training with John F. Barnes in Captiva, FL. Currently, I'm honing my abilities as an energy worker and staying open to what is yet to come. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such wise, and wonderful teachers and I hope to continue to use the gifts they've shared with me with grace and integrity.
In addition to nurturing Healing Roots, I enjoy self-care, spending time in nature, practicing yoga, running and writing poetry.

Abbie - LMT, Reiki Level 1 Certified
My commitment to wellness, self-care, and self-improvement was established at a fairly young age. The road that led me to my current outlook on such things has been a winding one, and heavily shaped by my efforts to understand my own place in the world and how best to function in it. I have sought direction in a variety of disciplines – religion, yoga, meditation and mindfulness, exercise and health-consciousness. While each of these things has played its own important role in my growth, massage therapy is the first of such disciplines that I’ve become truly rooted in. It is one of the few things that I genuinely believe everybody can derive some benefit from.
As a therapist, I take great pride and pleasure in being a part of others’ journeys of self-care and healing. I believe that each individual has their own unique best way of being in the world, and through my massage I wish to connect with, encourage, and teach people who resonate with this thinking. I tend to utilize a varying blend of Swedish, Myofascial, and Trigger Point techniques in my work; no two massages I give are the same, just as no two people are the same. My number one goal for every session is to create space for a whole person to just be. People often find my work to be deeply relaxing and comforting.
I graduated from the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy. As a part of the same program, I have been attuned in Level 1 Reiki. My trajectory for continued learning includes deepening my understanding of Myofascial work, and learning how best to incorporate energy work and intentionality into my practice.
Outside of massage therapy, I spend as much time as possible with my friends and loved ones. I am a collector of hobbies, but regularly enjoy playing Dungeons and Dragons, cooking, and creating music.
