Sarah Maag, LMT
- On maternity leave through June 2019 -
Specialties: Injury Rehabilitation, Prenatal, Abhyana Ayurvedic Massage
Sarah always leaves things better than she found them. In her work this means a careful first-time intake that allows her to weave a tapestry-like session that supports client goals while paying careful attention to their body’s physical response. Whether using firm or medium-deep pressure, she likes to incorporate orthopedic tests, essential oils, slow skin/myo-fascial work, deep penetrating heat, and circulatory strokes seamlessly into each massage.
Sarah's massage therapy education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (2016) confirmed her belief that empowering others to help themselves holds the most potential for sustainable health change. As a MaMassage®, prenatal-certified practitioner (2016), she is honored to walk alongside women through the entire perinatal process. She has interned at the Joffrey Ballet School and holds trainings in Abhyanga Ayurvedic Massage as well as OPEN Bodywork (sensory nerve and skin focused touch).
When not working with clients, Sarah practices yoga, reads, travels with her family and cooks with her toddler.
