Massage & Energywork

Nerves jangled? Mind on overdrive? Body achy? Not feeling energetic or relaxed?

Change that in as little as an hour

with a holistic wellness massage.

It’s easy to get busy. So busy that you’re not taking care of you.

Your body. Your mind.
Your spirit.

The good news (although it can feel like bad news when you’re in the middle of it) is that your body, mind, and spirit will send you messages to help get you back on track.

You might notice things, some little, some impossible to ignore. Maybe your back aches or you have frequent headaches. Maybe you’re having a hard time focusing. Or you’re not sleeping well. Or you just feel off.

Hard to live the full energetic life you want to live–family, friends, career, exercise, education, hobbies–when you don’t feel your best.

Want to feel more whole? More alive? More balanced? More at ease in your own skin?
Ok. Those messages disguised as aches and low energy have gotten your attention. Now what? You need a holistic wellness massage.
Why? Because you’re more than an achy back or sore shoulders. You’re a whole being. You deserves a massage that acknowledges your wholeness.

With an integrated approach you feel more connected, more balanced, more in your body.
Your mind stops racing. Your breath slows. Your body relaxes. From that place the wisdom of your body, mind, and spirit can heal, rebalance, and renew you.

What is a holistic wellness massage?

A massage and more! Your session combines the best of a number of effective modalities. Modalities that address your body, your mind, and your spirit.

Here are some of your options.

  • Massage and bodywork modalities. I combine a bunch of techniques so you get a massage that fits your goals, your pressure tolerance, and your preferences. Love the feel of oil with long soothing strokes? Great. Then we’ll we’ll start with some Swedish massage with it’s relaxing and comforting strokes. Find your body really relaxes with heat? Then how about some hot stones? Don’t want oil on your skin? No problem. We’ll use a technique without oil or lotion.
  • Aromatherapy and flower essences. We can include these in your massage or private yoga session for many reasons…to help you relax, calm, center, energize, lift your spirit, ground, boost your immune system, open up your breathing…
  • Yoga. A combined1 1/2 hour massage and yoga session feels like having a spa day. Or I can offer a few poses for you at the end of your massage. Or try a private yoga session–perfect if a class doesn’t fit into your schedule, you want a custom yoga routine that fits your needs, or you want one-on-one instruction.
  • Energy work. You might find energy work especially beneficial if your emotions feel out of balance, your body isn’t responding quickly to muscle work, or you would prefer not disrobing for a massage. Options include chakra balancing, reiki, Pranic healing, or Pleiadian Lightwork.

Do you crave comfort?

It’s all about your customized comfort. A state of the art massage table with body cushions cradle and support your body. I’ve had clients say they would pay money just to lay on my table.

Amount of pressure, type of treatments, sound, scent, lotion or oil
(or no lotion or oil)… It’s all up to you.

Already feeling overwhelmed by the number of choices you have to make every day? Then I will choose
the options that best fit your goals for the session.

Hi, I’m Sharon Roemmel, LMT #3696. I’ve been offering massage in Salem, Oregon since 1991 and teaching yoga since 1993. As a non-recovered training addict I have well over a thousand hours in training.The good news for you is that I have a bunch of tools in my bodywork toolbag. That increases the options for finding just the right combo for you.  By giving thousands of massages over the past 27 years I found that an integrated approach works best. Our bodies, minds and spirits do want to heal. They just need the right tools.

I am always working towards making my practice more environmentally friendly.I only use natural oils and lotions, usually organic oils. The essential oils I choose are either organic or wildcrafted. I use green cleaners in my treatment room and recycled products when available. I even wrote an article on the topic a few years ago. Greening Your Massage Practice

Because I was an instructor at Oregon School of Massage for 17 years I know lots of massage therapists!
