Most recently, Sasha enjoys taking on "problem" cases and helping clients resolve hard to treat pain and injuries through her studies in nerve manipulation and mobilization.

EMILY ADAMS, CMT CAMTC#39175
Many of us become disconnected from our physical and emotional selves because discomfort is not easy to hang out with. As your bodyworker, I invite you to use your session to bring curiosity to your present experience. I aim to create a space where you can follow and notice the impact of touch in order to get clear about exactly what your body needs.My approach is collaborative and each session is customized to address the unique needs of the individual. Most sessions include a balance of focused, therapeutic work and relaxing, soothing techniques. Supported by a strong background in anatomy, I work intuitively, listening to the body with my hands to find the origin of pain. In addition to over 800 hours of training from the Baltimore School of Massage and the San Francisco School of Massage, I draw influence from the fields of Psychology, Dance, and Alexander Technique to inform my work. I am nationally certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork by the NCBTMB and am a California Certified Massage Therapist with the CAMTC. Integrated modalities include myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point, and reflexology. I also offer TMJ release and Pregnancy Massage sessions.
