Several years ago, his yoga practice lead him to Portland, OR to study a holistic yoga practice more deeply at the Ananda School of Yoga.  He is currently a certified and registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. It is his belief that yoga practice and massage therapy are wonderful compliments to one another.  Brady loves to integrate a variety of healing modalities into his sessions such as Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, hot stone deep tissue, reflexology, and therapist assisted stretching.

Dylondylon head shot

Dylon has been practicing massage for 8 years and deeply enjoys what he does. He integrates the clinical style of outcome based treatments with the relaxing movement of slow, steady pressure and tractioning. He works as a healer on a physical and energetic level keeping his pressure intuitive.
Dylon studied in Chicago at the Soma Institute and at Blue Lotus Thai, totaling 950+ hours of training. He has also been practicing Reiki since he was 13. His grandmother was a healer, and passed a great deal of her knowledge to him.
Prior to massage Dylon attended college for Sculpture and still actively creates work daily. His tactile talents make him versatile with his hands and certainly makes for a unique technique.
The body can be shaped and shifted, just as a sculptor manipulates the form of clay, stone and metals. However, the body can not be forced into healing, it must be given space to heal itself.

Dominic1 (1)

Dominic integrates many therapeutic massage techniques into his practice with a focus on myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point and neuromuscular therapy held together by the fluid and seamless movement of swedish massage.

Dominic also enjoys many physical activities such as backpacking, rock climbing, yoga, slacklining and soccer. This continues to fuel his curiosity of the wonders of the human body as well as give him a deeper understanding of how it works. It is his belief that we all have the ability to heal and be healed and he hopes to provide the space for others to discover this with his massage practice.

 

Jeffjeff headshot

Jeff specializes in Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Swedish, and Tuina. He is
thrilled to work with clients experiencing chronic conditions as well as to aid in the rehabilitation
of recent injuries. His approach is to assess unique postural patterns and to listen to the
information the body intuitively communicates. He applies myofascial techniques to release
connective tissues which surround structures in the body to catalyze healing at a deeper level.
Jeff began exploring his intuitive approach to bodywork in his early 20’s. Friends and family
returning home from physically demanding work would request relief of aches and pains.
Encouraged by his success in alleviating pain, he enrolled himself at East West College of the
Healing Arts, in Portland OR, graduating in March of 2015.

Sami

1Sami’s sessions are heart centered, deep, slow and integrative catering to the
clients needs in the present moment. She creates a safe space for clients to
relax their nervous system and begin the process of unwinding old patterns in
order to release both physical and emotional pain/ trauma stored in the body.
In 2009 Sami moved to Boulder, Colorado to deepen her studies in Forrest Yoga
and Vipassana Meditation. Through these practices she began to develop
awareness around the bodies intelligence and inherent wisdom to heal itself.
Craving more knowledge and education around the mind-body connection Sami
moved to Kauai, HI in 2014 to study at the Pacific Center For Awareness and
Bodywork. Here she studied Structural Integration, connective tissue massage,
Swedish and Lomi Lomi. She learned to utilize tools of mindfulness in the
container of bodywork and developed skills to communicate with her clients
around emotional expressions that often release during deep work.
Upon moving to Asheville in Dec 2016, Sami became a certified Thai Yoga
Massage Therapist and learned how to incorporate more dynamic stretching into
sessions.
