With a passion for holistic wellness and the study of the human body deeply rooted since childhood, a career in alternative health came naturally to Sarah. A graduate from Northern Lights School of Massage Therapy in 1998 and a devoted lifelong learner, she uses her ever-evolving skill set and intuitive blend of intentional healing techniques to individually meet each client’s needs. This may include any combination of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Work, Guided Relaxation, Hot or Cold Stones, Massage Cupping, Passive Stretching, Focused Trigger Point Therapy and Craniosacral Holds.

TravisLMT
Travis has been practicing Massage Therapy professionally for about one year, but was first introduced to it during his somatic based dance and biology training in his undergraduate studies. He enjoys using his knowledge of kinesiology and functional anatomy to take a clinic approach to helping people heal themselves and their aches and pains. This has also allowed him to work with various athletes in reaching their goals and improving their performance. He also has training in the John Barnes Myofascial Release approach and uses elements of it in every session as well as does full sessions of this powerful treatment modality.

Every day is seen as an opportunity to blend “left and right brain” ideas to achieve embodiment and live a centered and meaningful life. Travis uses sensation as his guide to further understand his intuition and practice holding a safe space for everyone he interacts with. He firmly believes that: “Every Human Being has an innate and inherent potential that when realized can result in quantum changes”

Gemar was introduced to massage therapy through a recovery regimen after his mother had an car accident. Amazed at the newfound strength bodywork gave her through healing, he decided to go into the field. It has been seven years since entering the practice.
Gemar attended Everest Institute of Eagan Minnesota in 2009 where he successfully completed 720 hours of hands on Massage and graduated with honors, and he is still as passionate about his profession and the healing power it can offer to others. Gemar, embodies compassion and a soothing touch with a blended approach heavily influenced by the flow style of Lomi Lomi forearm massage – a Hawaiian bodywork modality – that harmonizes beautifully with his naturally rhythmic, yet therapeutic style. He also loves working with hot stones, appreciating their grounding, warm undertones in a treatment. He tries to accommodate to each individual he works with, understanding pressure preferences and pain tolerance is subjective, and does his best to match each client’s desired needs by being mindful and transparent not only during intake, but during table time as well. His work can benefit prenatal clients, athletes, chronic pain and migraine sufferers, and anyone seeking overall wellness of being.
Gemar also grew up right here in the Twin Cities, where he has fraternal girl and boy twins and has recently added to his family a new baby boy. Gemar enjoys watching sports, singing travelling and entertaining his kids with fun events throughout the year.
