Sarah Downing Massage Therapist

Who am I and why did I follow the call to heal?

Sarah Downing was inspired to become a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) after experiencing years of chronic illness and pain. Through her own healing journey she realized the importance of a holistic approach to healthcare and was moved to help others in the role of a “wounded healer”. Having seen first-hand the impact of stress-related illness, Sarah knows how vital massage and the nurturing power of touch are for alleviating this. She believes that heartfelt intention is a huge part of healing and her treatments also incorporate her natural intuition, enabling her to customize them to her individual client’s wishes and needs. Sarah specializes in deep tissue, sports massage, Thai massage (“assisted yoga”, an energizing clothed massage), ashiatsu and is a Reiki Master Teacher. Alongside massage therapy, Sarah is a professional writer, poet and translator and has been blessed to experience life in three different countries (England, Germany and the US), which has opened her eyes and broadened her horizons.

Who are my ideal clients?

Sarah not only performs relaxing massages, but also assists in clients’ rehabilitation, and has worked on clients with many different conditions and goals, from teenage athletes to paraplegics to geriatric clients to the overworked who simply need to make regular relaxation a part of their life.

Many clients have described how massage has changed their life. They came in with chronic pain or an injury and were amazed and overjoyed to see their progress over a number of sessions to the point where their mobility was restored and they were finally pain-free. Some were initially skeptical about massage, but this convinced them of the importance of incorporating this in their regular wellness routine on a weekly, bimonthly or monthly basis.

For clients who would like to make a regular commitment to improving their wellness, Sarah offers reasonably priced packages. She recommends a minimum of one massage a month for maintenance. Many clients benefit from coming in every week or every two weeks. The convenience of Sarah’s mobile in-home massages makes it easier for clients to incorporate massage in their busy schedules.

My Modalities

Deep tissue massage

This massage is both therapeutic and relaxing. It focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and the network of connective tissue surrounding the muscles and bones. This makes deep tissue massage the ideal choice for those suffering from chronic pain such as repetitive strain injuries, sciatica and any other kind of muscle tension or spasm.

Slower than other massage techniques to warm the tissue before going deeper, deep tissue massage can be performed with a variety of pressures (to your comfort level) to break down adhesions and knots, the painful rigid tissue caused by tension.

There may be some discomfort while performing these techniques on particularly tense areas and your body may feel like it does post-workout for a day or two afterwards. However, this tends to abate as you get it done more often, and ultimately clients experience extensive and often lasting relief of their symptoms. Ideally, as with any bodywork, this massage should be performed on a regular basis in order to maintain your body and prevent it from becoming accustomed to holding itself in a tense state.

Combine this with Thai massage assisted stretching for a massage that not only relieves your tension, but also increases your range of motion and flexibility – excellent for athletes!

Thai massage

Affectionately dubbed “lazy man’s yoga”, this approximately 2,500-year-old art form is traditionally performed fully clothed on a padded mat (though it can be performed on the table) and is suitable for those in search of a more energizing massage experience. The client wears loose and comfortable attire such as sportswear to facilitate the series of assisted poses, stretches and compressions. The practitioner uses their forearms, elbows, knees and feet to create increased flexibility, energy (by opening up the body’s energy/sen lines) and better postural alignment. A much sought after modality due to its multitude of benefits, I am proud to be among the few in the area to offer this unique therapy.

If you wish, I can also blend Thai massage with other modalities such as deep tissue to customize the perfect massage experience for you.

Reiki

We are all made up of energy and in Reiki energy healing the practitioner fills themselves with the energy around them and subsequently transmits it to the client through their hands. The aim is to enhance the client’s own healing abilities, induce relaxation and reduce pain. Depending on their level of openness and their rapport with the practitioner, each client may experience this differently. Often, it can be described as a tingling yet soothing sensation where the practitioner’s hands heat up to soothe tension and bring about relaxation. For Reiki practitioners Reiki generally flows through their hands whenever they perform any type of healing work.

What my clients say about me and my work

Sarah is not only great with her hands and massage techniques, but her enthusiastic and positive personality flows into her sessions making you feel welcome and at ease. She listens to your needs verbally as well as your body’s response to the massage and adjusts her  style/ pressure accordingly. She encourages feedback during and after the session and is open to trying new things. It is refreshing to become a friend over an hour session and feel so relaxed afterwards.

Clare LarsonClient

Sarah is an innovative, highly skilled and intuitive therapist. She seamlessly blends a variety of modalities to deliver a massage that is customized to meet the needs of anyone that has the pleasure of spending an hour on her table!

As a busy massage therapist and former massage teacher I can see that Sarah has a unique gift of healing and that is the reason I see her every two weeks!

John ShaheenLMT, Owner/ Operator at Healing Hands Massage Therapy

Sarah Downing is a powerhouse! I had a few Thai massages from her and each time she addressed long time issues. My I.T. band was always tight, Sarah got in there deep , it released and remained relaxed for a few weeks. I also had a long time shoulder issue which she corrected by her attentive skill. I’ve never had anyone give me such an intense treatment. I’ve received many different modalities of bodywork. Each with their own uniqueness. Sarah had found a “tool” that works well “in her hands”. That being Thai massage. I love you sister for your wonderful compassionate work. Thanks again.

Eric PowellFellow bodywork practitioner

Sarah has a more dynamic, and passionate understanding of massage therapy than any of the other practitioners I’ve experienced. Her approach merges traditional massage techniques with other energy healing modalities blended in a respectful, effective way. One of her best qualities is that she listens, and is glad to modify everything from the pressure of massage to the music based on your personal preference. Of highest importance to Sarah is that you receive the experience you need and desire. I highly recommend her, especially if you are looking for healing based on specific imbalances in your body, mind or spirit.

Eric VenutoClient

Sarah is an outstanding massage therapist. Her greatest strength is really bringing the body into alignment, through Thai yoga massage and deep tissue massage. I feel good as new after one hour! That was beyond my expectations. She is an energy healer too. I saw a black energy release and clear while she was massaging me-another unexpected bonus. Needless to say I highly recommend Sarah and her magic hands.

What can I say about Sarah other than she is the best physical touch therapist I have ever experienced. The deep tissue massage is unbelievable and will make your body feel so much relief. She pays attention to detail and it’s noticeable in the end when your experience is over with. I recommend her with the highest ranking possible. In the two years I’ve used her I’ve never been disappointed what she can do with her magical hands and inner energy that translates into your body. Thank you!
