Staff Massage Therapists:

 Sara LMT, graduated from Arizona School of Massage Therapy in May, 2004 and Utah College of Massage Therapy's Master Body-worker program in August, 2004. Massage therapy allows her to blend her spirit of community service with her interest in helping others heal.  Sara has been studying with a Shaman for over 15 years. She has found the experience to be a tremendous asset to her work. In addition to being a Reiki Master, Sara is trained in Cranio-Sacral therapy, deep tissue massage, and shamanic healing. In 2009, Sara added Chi Nei Tsang (Chinese Vital Organ Therapy) to her list of treatments provided. Chi Nei Tsang is very effective for many conditions, including digestion issues, reproductive problems, and low back pain. Whether you need help with muscle injuries, pain management, or exploring how to be more connected with your spirit, Sara can help. She works full time at our Country Club Rd. location. She is a Master Level therapist. 

 Karian LMT, joined our team straight out of massage school and quickly became one of our most popular therapists (her clients describe her massages as "fabulous").  As part of her basic massage education she also became a certified chiropractic assistant. Karian has a strong belief that maintaining health and wellness is a deeply personal adventure in which each individual can thrive. She approaches massage as a health practice to achieve a valuable quality of life. Karian can work with people experiencing muscle soreness, joint discomfort, and scar tissue restrictions (which helps to regain functionality in movement). Karian has completed a lot of continuing education: Connective Tissue Release Techniques for Head & Neck, a Managing Migraines class, a series on Releasing Nerve Entrapment, our Advanced Deep Tissue Massage class, and finally, Intro to Reflexology!  In January of 2018, she completed Erik Dalton's Advanced Myoskeletal Techniques course to qualify her as a Posture and Pain Specialist.  Effective 4/1/18 Karian is a Master Level Therapist.

 Elizabeth LMT, joined our team the summer of 2016. She recently relocated to Tucson from Ohio. She has a musical background and like many young artists chose to pursue a career that affords them creativity and a much steadier paycheck. Elizabeth's energy is super positive and she excels in the "science of massage" ... really getting to understand what the client's goals are for the session and creating an effective treatment for them.  She has  completed our Advanced Deep Tissue Massage and Intro to Reflexology classes.  She is well balanced and humble and looking forward to growing within our company. She is an Experienced Level Therapist.

 Benita LMT’s style is deeply relaxing while working deeper into muscles to improve movement, release spasms and give pain relief.  She has completed level one  Cranio Sacral Therapy and Kinesio Taping.  In the future she plans to add reflexology and deepen her knowledge and techniques with sports massage. Benita says she loves giving massage because it never feels like work!  She is an Experienced Level Therapist.

Barbara, LMT joined Team PS on 1/17/18. We are excited to have this 20+ year massage veteran join our team. She recently relocated from Colorado and said that Peaceful Spirit is the place for her to practice. Awe, shucks, thanks Barabara. She has spent her career working as a chiropractic assistant, an SRI (Somato Respiratory Integration) Wellness educator and massaga therapist. Her style is slow and connected and feels that even when doing very specific, corrective therapy one should feel and become deeply relaxed. She will be in the "Experienced Level" therapist category until her promotion eligibility to Master level until after her 90 day trial on the team. 

Laura, LMT joined Team PS in December of 2017. She is a recent grad, but a hard worker. She has been diligently taking advantage of our in house mentoring and feedback sessions. We appreciate her dedication to learning! She is available full time.  She is a Debuting Level Therapist.

Lance LMT, chose a career in massage therapy after a great career in accounting and then helping to manage the family business. Lance is a kind and sensitive practitioner who really listens to you and your body effectively. He has a solid, confident touch and approach to the body. Alternative healing practices have been a large part of Lance's personal growth and healing path.  With the excitement of his personal growth he decided to become a practitioner himself with an intent to help others heal and grow and reclaim their health.  Effective 4/1/18 Lance has been promoted to an Experienced Level Therapist. 

 Jesse LMT, graduated from massage school in 2004! He has a strong history in sports massage, focused injury work and of course, general relaxation, too. He joined the PS team in November of 2017. Welcome Jesse! He is currently an Experienced Level Therapist, promotion expected in fall of 2018.
