Sarah - Owner, LMT, RYT, Reiki Certified
Sarah attributes her unique and therapeutic massage style to her early massage days working on Hilton Head Island, where she learned from seasoned therapists to treat the practice as something sacred.
Today, the International Spa Institute graduate owns and operates Healing Roots Massage & Wellness Center with the intention of creating a haven for others to experience relief from physical, mental, and emotional distress, as well as a renewed connection to one’s self.
Since starting her career as a holistic practitioner, Sarah has received certification in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, completed Myofascial Release training, and became certified in Reiki levels1 2 & 3. Sarah shapes her work in a way that addresses the whole self, and clients can expect thorough, meaningful work in a safe, intimate, and easeful space.

Abbie - LMT, Reiki Certified
Abbie's commitment to wellness, self-care, and self-improvement was established at a fairly young age. The road that led them to their current outlook on such things has been a winding one and heavily shaped by their efforts to understand their own place in the world and how best to function in it.
Abbie has sought direction in various disciplines – religion, yoga, meditation and mindfulness, exercise, and health-consciousness. While each of these things has played its own important role in their growth, massage therapy is the first of such disciplines that they've become truly rooted in. It is one of the few things that Abbie genuinely believes everybody can derive some benefit from.
As a therapist, Abbie takes great pride and pleasure in being a part of others' journeys of self-care and healing. They believe that each individual has their own unique way of being in the world. Through massage, Abbie wishes to connect with, encourage, and teach people who resonate with this thinking.
Tending to a varying blend of Swedish, Myofascial, and Trigger Point techniques, no two massages Abbie gives are the same, just as no two people are the same. Their number one goal for every session is to create space for a whole person just to be. People often find their work to be deeply relaxing and comforting.
Abbie graduated from the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy. As a part of the same program, they have been attuned in Level 1 Reiki. Abbie's continued learning trajectory includes deepening their understanding of Myofascial work and learning how best to incorporate energy work and intentionality into their practice.
Outside of massage therapy, Abbie spends as much time as possible with friends and loved ones. A collector of hobbies, but regularly enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons, cooking, and creating music.
Jason - LMT
Jason has always enjoyed helping people. In 2004 he went to massage school in Portland, OR, to learn to help people in a way he had not yet. The teachers he had were of varying disciplines and introduced him to many modalities. One of his first jobs was working on a sports massage team, which led him to more of a treatment-style massage. Later he worked with a doctor who treated patients involved in automobile crashes and work-related injuries where he was able to focus on more acute and chronic conditions.
Jason's massage incorporates many different modalities from deep tissue, trigger point, and sports massage. When working into the muscle, he likes to go slow for the tissues to relax as he finds that to give a longer-lasting benefit. Something he has learned along the way is that education and awareness can help you to heal from your injuries. He is currently working towards becoming a C.A.M.T. (Certified Advanced Myofascial Therapist).
His studies have taken him to Spain, where he took movement and bodywork classes on the Camino. When not providing massage, Jason enjoys the outdoors by bicycle, foot, and any of the slow boating ways.
Jim received his master’s degree from the Pennsylvania State University and enjoyed a rewarding career in environmental science and research. While designing and building his family’s house, he hurt his back, and after spending time at several doctors, he still could not relieve the back pain. Jim started a yoga practice at the advice of a friend and was amazed by the relief. He has had a regular yoga practice for the past 12 years and has found a new interest in understanding the body. Jim completed his training at the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy through encouragement from yoga friends, where he currently teaches Neuromuscular Therapy.
Jim’s sessions includes swedish, neuromuscular, trigger point, sports, and Esalen. A session can be an integration of these methods. Jim is currently completing a certification in Esalen deep tissue bodywork at the Esalen Institute in California. This modality creates a very connecting session of energy between client and therapist.
Jim is an experienced woodworker and likes making bowls and small boxes. Recently, he built a large treehouse and expanded the family garden.
