About Sarah Maag, LMT
Sarah has been a people person since birth. After growing up in a family of eight, she graduated from the University of Texas at Austin (2009) where she broadened her understanding of how the world works through studying History, Spanish, and Russian. However, in the years following college it became apparent that helping others, not just studying them, was her life calling.
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, she is honored to walk alongside women through the entire perinatal process. She enjoys working with athletes, as she draws from tools learned through an internship at the Joffrey Ballet School. Hand-picking specific techniques for each session, she constantly educates clients about their anatomy and lesser known massage styles.
When not working with clients, she practices yoga, runs, reads, creates and pursues fine art, and can often be found preparing a dinner party for friends or strangers. Sarah lives in Brooklyn with her husband and best friend, Michael, and their adventurous one year old.
