BODY WORK: KEN KAWAJI
Ken's training lies in the deep gentle arts of Shiatsu, manual lymphatic drainage and the cranio-sacral core. He works in the deeper physical aspects to unlock and unwind the musculotendinous, fascial and ligamental, from the attachment to the belly of the musculoskeletal aggravation. You will leave the massage feeling refreshed and reenergized--and he will help you re-set and release the effects of the daily grind and bindings of our everyday tasks.
BODY WORK: MICKEY BARR
Mickey Barr is an Ashtanga yoga teacher and licensed massage therapist who studied in the US and Thailand. He specializes in both orthopedic massage and Thai massage:
Orthopedic massage is performed on a massage table. The client typically undresses (optional) and is covered with a sheet and blanket (draped.) The area to be massaged is undraped and the massage is performed on the skin. Orthopedic massage is ideal for clients suffering from chronic pain, nerve pain, repetitive stress injuries, and postural imbalances. Techniques used include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, positional release and nerve mobilization.
Thai Massage is performed on a mat on the floor and the client remains clothed. The therapist uses all of their limbs to perform the massage including hands, feet, knees and elbows. Thai Massage is ideal for clients seeking full body treatments, sports massage, acupressure, increased range of motion and relaxation massage.

Christabeth Ingold, LMT, Hawaiian Lomilomi Giver
Christabeth offers a beautiful blend of physical, energetic, and spiritual components woven into her holistic massage sessions. Through her own healing process around anxiety in 2010, a spark within lit up. Christabeth dove into energy work and created the awareness and shifts she wanted in order to live more wholly. This is the foundation of her bodywork practice today. Besides offering traditional massage therapy, she was first deeply called to learn Hawaiian Shamanic Bodywork—lomilomi massage—and has been practicing different styles of lomilomi since 2015. As an ancient and specialized healing art, lomilomi is infused with the spirit of Aloha (love). Sensing the forearms and hands flow over you from head to toe, lomilomi clears and releases the physical, mental and energetic bodies with gentle, wave-like motions. Besides being super relaxing for your nervous system, you also receive a delicious lymphatic flush and are held in what feels like a beautiful honoring ceremony. Here is where you get to set intentions, release, clear patterns, and profoundly heal yourself including generations both backward and forward!
Christabeth went to Spa Tech Institute in Ipswich, MA and has been practicing holistic massage therapy since early 2018. She loves to help her clients understand the energetic-physical body connection so they have more insight as to the root of their pain or discomfort and therefore creating a better relationship to the self overall. Christabeth’s clients tend to feel better before they even get on the massage table because they are able to pinpoint and begin to release the dis-ease in their physical body. Besides having a whole person approach to bodywork, she also incorporates tools like cupping, crystals and trigger-point releases. Whether you’re looking to work on something specific or general relaxation, Christabeth is happy to offer her blend of bodywork magic.
Christabeth also offers energy clearing and alignment, Akashic Record readings and transformational life coaching.
