The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (rei) which means “universal life” and (ki) which means “energy".

Sarah - Owner, LMT, RYT, Reiki Levels 1 & 2 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.

Since starting her career as a holistic practitioner, Sarah has received certification in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, completed Myofascial Release 1 training and became certified in Reiki 1 & 2. She continues to hone her abilities and bring new experiences to her clients and students. Sarah shapes her work in a way that addresses the whole self, and clients can expect thorough, meaningful bodywork in a safe, intimate, and easeful space.

Abbie - LMT, Reiki Level 1 Certified
Abbie's commitment to wellness, self-care, and self-improvement was established at a fairly young age. The road that lead 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 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 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 to just 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 trajectory for continued learning 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.
