Sarah Macias, LMT
Sarah has been practicing massage in Portland since 2008 after graduating from University of Oregon in 2006 with a BA in Cultural Anthropology and attending East West College of Healing Arts in 2007. Having been called “the velvet hammer”, her training in deep tissue and relaxation massage gives her a soft, yet firm touch; narrowing in on specific issues or treating the whole body.
From her own experience with pain management, she takes an integrative approach to massage therapy. Over the years, she has learned that treating the symptom isn’t always enough to eliminate pain and having a holistic view of the body can help unravel the root causes of pain. Lack of nutrition, along with environmental, and emotional elements can manifest as pain and she understands the impacts it can have on the body. Sarah believes massage is a great tool to facilitate healing and help raise awareness in the body to optimize your health.
