Lead Therapist (LMT 7175)
Upon being diagnosed with S-Curve scoliosis in 1987, Sarah began her life-long pursuit of a pain free and ergonomically functional lifestyle. Her condition,
although seemingly arrested by a series of treatments and back braces, continued to degenerate. In spite of routine therapeutic care including Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage, Neuromuscular
Therapy with Jon and an intense self-care regiment, she ultimately chose to take sabbatical from her thriving 17 year massage practice and undergo a highly invasive spinal reconstructive and fusion
surgery in March of 2015. The procedure was a success and, after 11 months of rigorous physical therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy with Jon and a lot of healing, patience and love, she is thrilled
to return to practice her integrative approach to Neuromuscular Therapy and Massage at Sanosoma!
This gritty life experience has given Sarah an even greater comprehension of the injury, pain and healing cycles and, in turn, an even greater revere for the
Intrastructural Approach for its ability to penetrate and dissolve decade old compensation patterns and help to restore function and tolerable pain levels. In addition to the positive impact of
practicing decades of therapeutically focused exercises preoperatively, this rehabilitation process has given Sarah a newly fortified respect for the power of corrective exercise in conjunction
with Neuromuscular Therapy for helping to establish pain free function to even the most severely compromised structures and joints.
Sarah is so pleased to be partnering with her respected mentor and friend of over 18 years and continue to pursue her passion for catalyzation of the healing
process thru the principals put forth in the Intrastructural Approach to Restorative Bodywork. She aspires to guide her clients toward pain free function with an empathetic, combined approach of
hands-on bodywork, client education and awareness, as well as corrective exercises to empower each individual toward their optimal function.
