More about our therapists:

Brady Preyss

Brady PreyssIt is my intention to use the professional knowledge and training I have acquired to empower others to be healthy and to feel their best.”
—Brady Preyss

Brady Preyss is the founder as well as an active therapist of Unity Healing Arts. Throughout his whole life, Brady has had an interest and a passion to explore the human body’s ability to perform an endless foray of feats and activities. Often this interest has lead to his own participation in athletics, movement, dance, and outdoor adventure. In time, the joy of participating also lead to his fascination in how the body heals and techniques to facilitate that healing.

By attending and graduating from the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe, NM, Brady had the opportunity to study with some of the finest healers and massage therapists in one the country’s most renown healing meccas.

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.

 

Jessiejessie headshot

After feeling the healing effects of yoga and massage for her own mental, emotional, and physical pains Jessie became deeply passionate about sharing the benefits of these holistic practices with others.

Jessie completed a month immersion course at Shoshoni Ashram outside of Boulder, CO and received her yoga teacher certification as well as a certification in meditation instruction.  She received further training from Shoshoni in the hands on skills of physical assists and adjustments and has worked as a mentor for other aspiring teachers in Blossom Yoga’s Teacher Training Program in Laramie, WY.

She studied massage at the Center for Massage and Natural Health where she was educated in a number of modalities and practices an integrative approach that draws on her knowledge of these practices and on her many years as a yoga instructor.  

Jessie loves to create a space for clients to leave their deadlines, worries, and pains behind and find themselves in the soft, relaxed, and natural home of their own skin and hopefully enabling them to carry the confidence of embodiment back out with them into the often chaotic world.

 

Loganheadshotkat

Logan loves weaving the relaxing components of Swedish massage with more therapeutic modalities such as deep tissue and trigger point therapy. She believes that massage does not have to hurt in order to be therapeutic.

Logan instead likes to work within client’s comfort level to not only create a blissed-out experience on the table, but also lasting effects in the body. She especially loves to work with clients to release head, neck, shoulder, and back tension. Logan enjoys utilizing hot stones and hot towels during sessions to deepen relaxation and release patterns of tension.

Logan has been practicing massage since 2009 and is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Chinese medicine at Daoist Traditions. She would love to share her passion for healing work with you.

Danieldaniel-headshot

Since 2005, Daniel has been helping people to learn how to heal and re-integrate the mind, body, and spirit. His main tools in this process are myofascial release, neuro-muscular facilitation, and deep tissue massage. He also integrates 15 months of Physical Therapy studies into his work.

Over the last ten years, Daniel has received advanced training in deep tissue massage, reiki levels 1 and 2, thai yoga massage, therapeutic cupping, lymphatic drainage, and healing touch.

“It is a joy to watch clients take control of their health and re-learn how to use their bodies. Our present society of constant work and ever-developing technology, along with traumas that we may encounter, can cause us to lose touch with our bodies. Locked-in patterns due to repetitive behavior cause tension, pain, and decreased range of motion. Part of the job of a massage therapist is to remind the client of how their body can move through space, and help facilitate a return to proper alignment.”

Bradley

It is with a deep gratitude, joy and respect that Bradley has found himself practicing massage therapy since 2005.  After graduating Batesbradleyheadshot College in Maine with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, he procrastinated from pursuing his childhood dream of being a doctor by learning to sail, exploring the tropics, and defaulting on student loans. His journeys brought him to Maui, Hawaii where “the best massage therapy in the world” was practiced as an integral part of Native Hawaiian healthcare for hundreds of years.  Caught by the brilliance of the indigenous scientific mind of the Hawaiians and the aloha spirit they embody, Bradley felt at home studying Mana Lomi, a gentle yet powerful style of therapeutic Hawaiian Massage.  While he studied many other modalities of massage including Sports, NMT, ART, Craniosacral, Swedish, Pregnancy, Deep Tissue, Syntropy, and Shiatsu, Mana Lomi is what he, gratefully, belongs to.

After graduating from the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage, he continued his studies in Mana Lomi, as well as Hawaiian Chant and language, while working with the local families of the island as a counselor in a Substance Abuse Treatment program.  In 2009, he brought this work back to his home in Connecticut where he opened up his practice, Aloha Integrative Massage in New Haven, CT.  He has treated hundreds of clients and families, building a practice through word-of-mouth and referral from Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractors, Rolfers, Medical Doctors, Pilates and Yoga Instructors, as well as other discerning professionals.

Bradley moved to Asheville with his wife and son in January 2015 after enrolling in the Masters of Art in Oriental Medicine program at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts, in order to continue his work with brilliant holistic medical traditions.

 

Letha

letha-headshot

With a passion for the ancient healing arts of the eastern world and a fascination with western modalities and sciences, Letha has created a deeply therapeutic yet profoundly relaxing bodywork style of her own since she started doing massage in 2013
Early in her career, Letha was introduced to Ashiatsu, “the deepest most luxurious massage on the planet” and fell completely head over heels with the modality. She went on to complete 48 hours of training in Ashiatsu and Ashi-Thai, and is extremely honored and excited to share the therapeutic gifts that her sole-to-soul healing sessions have to offer. Also versed in Temple Style Lomi Lomi, a beautiful type of flowing bodywork which originates on the Hawaiian Islands where she trained in 2015, Letha infuses the characteristic hypnotic wave-like body strokes and conscious breath work of Lomi into all her sessions, with much gratitude and ALOHA!
In addition to her studies in Ashi and Lomi, Letha is truly passionate about helping her clients identify the root cause of their chronic pain and postural imbalances. By looking deeper than just the symptoms of the issues at hand, she couples her extensive knowledge of human anatomy with myofascial release, assisted stretching, trigger point and structural integration techniques to help restore balance and harmony within the body. She skillfully targets tense, overworked muscles with pin-point precision and helps increase blood and energy flow throughout the body. Letha firmly believes that what you do off the table is just as important to your healing process as what you do on the table, so don’t be surprised if you get some yoga or stretching homework to implement into your daily life after one of her therapeutic sessions!
Letha is also a student of Usui Reiki and is currently earning a 225 hour Professional Energy Practitioner Certificate at the Appalachian School of Holistic Herbalism. She is also training to become a Yoga Therapist and Instructor at Black Mountain Yoga, and is very excited to expand her horizons and offer even more therapeutic modalities in the near future!

Alice

Alice is a Reiki Master-Teacher who received her training in Chicago and Asheville, and has been doing energy work since 2010. She comes from a family of acupuncturists, and grew up receiving energy work from her mother–so “alternative” therapies have been a vital part of her idea of healthcare from the sAliceheadshottart.

Alice is honored to be able to access this energy, and delights in working closely with clients to unburden themselves of stuck energy and patterns so that they may stretch out into the authentic, empowered versions of themselves they yearn to be. She is fascinated by the spiritual connection she finds in doing this work, and can work with clients to access their own connection to their true nature and guidance. During her sessions, she receives visual images that translate to messages about what is happening in clients’ bodies and what can be helpful to them on their healing paths.

She believes the mountains and thriving creative community in Asheville provide an ideal backdrop for people to do their inner work, to heal themselves so that they can do the outer work they’re here to do. She will be starting her postpartum doula training in April, and looks forward to supporting women during this tender, transformative time.
