After graduating Collinson School for Therapeutics and Massage of Colorado in 2001, Sarah pursued her career in the spa industry, specializing in therapuetic & relaxation 'Swedish' style massage with some assisted stretching & hydrotherapy rolled in.  During this stint of her career, massage was viewed as more of a luxury treatment rather than ongoing healthcare for a specific physical problem.  Her clients seeking therapy primarily for stress reduction and overall reconnection of their tired bodies' seperated energies.  These years taught her the importance of creating the 'ambience' in a massage room; everything from the feel of the sheets, warmth of the table, to the music & lighting concept and how all of these things affected the overall experience of the client.   While maintaining a true passion for healing she enjoyed every moment of providing massage in the spa setting, however, felt she had more to offer as a massuese & desired a challenging, faster paced version of her career.  Therefore, in 2014 after graduating from Cincinnati School of Medical Massage in Blue Ash, Ohio, she decided this time to follow her passion to specialize in sports massage and injury prevention & rehabilitation.   She began volunteering chair massage in the lobby of Beechmont Racquet and Fitness in June of 2014 while still in massage school. -( A brilliant plot between Sarah & Kellie !) After months of hard work.......and a little remodeling, everything came together and 'Sarah’s Sports Massage' opened its doors Monday, March 2nd 2015 after which there hasn’t been a dull moment (or a free moment, period), since!  Sarah is also VERY interested in business, marketing & advertising - you can ask anyone here at the gym- she is "quite the promoter!" Future plans for Sarah include: postural assessments & a kinesiotaping certification!
