Smile, breathe, and go slowly. Thich Nhat Hanh
My name is Sarah Pedlow and I have been practicing massage therapy for seven years. I hold over 1,000 hours of training, beginning with the certification program at the Finger Lakes School of Massage, in Ithaca, NY. I have worked in spas and health clubs, at triathlons and farmers’ markets. In addition to my private practice, my resume includes International Orange (San Francisco), The Spa at Calistoga Ranch (Calistoga, CA), Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary (Freestone, CA), and the Park Point Health Club (Santa Rosa, CA).
My work draws from a variety of modalities, including shiatsu, Neuro-muscular therapy, and connective tissue. I specialize in slow Swedish massage with light to moderate pressure, Reiki (Level II), pregnancy massage, and chair massage at offices and events. To great success I have addressed a wide range of concerns, from low back injury and shoulder issues to chronic illness and a desire for deep relaxation.
Prior to bodywork, I earned an MFA in Visual Arts (mixed media and installation) at Rutgers University and worked with artists and architects in New York City. My path as a massage therapist grew naturally out of my interests in health, healing and creative, kinesthetic work. I currently maintain a studio practice that includes photography, mixed media, and sewing. For my own self-care, I enjoy dance, hatha yoga, and hiking.
I make house calls and am available for chair massage. Appointments are available on Tuesdays and Sundays, 10am – 8pm, and Saturdays from 10 – 1, with other selected times available. Please contact me to schedule an appointment.
Please contact me by cell phone at 707.591.5037 or by email, sarahpedlow [at] gmail.com, to discuss your needs and intentions.
I look forward to working with you!
“Sarah has an intuitive, deep listening presence and the hands of a well-seasoned bodyworker. I left my massage feeling like I had been re-aligned in a way that benefited my body and my spirit. Every part of me felt attended.” Kate B.
