The Healing Arts Center Massage Therapists

Healing Arts on Center, Studio #5,
Ayni Henderson, LMT • 260-1002

Whether your goal is to simply unwind or address a more serious problem, I can work with you to achieve your health goals. I combine treatments as needed, offer local and senior discounts, on-site seated chair massages that are great for companies and parties. I have 10 years experience and specialize in:
Spinal Touch Treatment, a soft tissue, non-force “body mechanics” alignment offering postural muscular relaxation, add Tuina for a great healing session.

Swedish & Deep Tissue Massage treating back pain, headaches, TMJ, arthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, injuries, insomnia, depression and more. Massage reduces stress, increases blood circulation, lymph function & oxygen levels.

Reiki is a warm, hands-on healing art that activates your body’s own healing abilities and strengthens your life force.

Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle form of energy work on the cerebrospinal fluid that lubricates membranes between bone, brain and spinal cord, correcting distortion and healing stress.

Aqua Chi Energy Spa balances and enhances your energetic levels. You simply sit and relax with your feet in a water bath and what happens is amazing! The benefits are increased energy, pain and stress relief and detoxification.

Body Wisdom - Healing Massage and Bodywork
Mary Beth Fitzburgh, LMT, Studio #9

With over 9 years of experience in massage and bodywork, I draw upon the following techniques from which you can choose any combination: Deep Tissue & Trigger Point Massage, Jin Shin Jyutsu Acupressure, Aromatherapy and Flower Essences Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reiki and Meditation Instruction.

Jin Shin Jyutsu translates as “The Art of the Creator through the Compassionate Human Being”. It is a form of acupressure and is a simple yet powerful tool to harmonize our total being. An innate Art of Living, it helps us awaken to the awareness of complete harmony within the self and the universe.

This ancient body of wisdom was passed down by word of mouth from generation to generation. Over time it fell into relative obscurity and was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai in Japan in the early 1900’s. After clearing himself of a “terminal illness”, he devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of this Healing Art. The resulting knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu was then given to Mary Burmeister, a Japanese American woman, who brought it to the United States in the 1950’s.

Jin Shin Jyutsu restores balance to our body’s energy, strengthening our own healing capacity and releasing tensions that cause various physical and emotional symptoms. It is a valuable compliment to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress.

Our bodies contain many energy pathways that help us to maintain health and wellbeing. Energy can stagnate or become blocked along any of these pathways resulting in fatigue, pain, and disease. These blockages can be transformed by simply holding various “Safety Energy Locks” in harmonious combinations. There are 26 safety energy locks located on the surface of the body which are regarded as “built-in specialists”, each with its own symbolic meaning and message. When unlocked, life energy flow is restored throughout the body resulting in a greater sense of overall health on many levels.

A typical session lasts about one hour, during which the receiver is fully clothed, laying face up on a massage table. After “listening” to the energy pulses at the receiver’s wrists, the practitioner uses a series of gentle hand placements on the receiver’s body to harmonize energy flow along various energy pathways.
Whether you want assistance to reduce the effects of tension accumulated through normal daily living, address an existing health disharmony, or simply want to actively maintain health and well being, Jin Shin Jyutsu is a powerful tool.

Ambrosia Brown, LMT -- TRUE SELF
Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork
(435) 259-7792, Studio 7

Deep Tissue and Full Body Swedish Massage.
Breathwork, stretching and hydrotherapy will be integrated into your session to free your stress, experience true relaxation and begin anew. You will decide whether you are in need of intense work or pampering yourself with a refreshing “fluff n’ buff”. Regardless, your mind and body will be rid of deeply embedded knots as well as hidden stress and tension.

Graduating with honors from an 800 hour professional licensing program and an extensive background in holistic health have strengthened my understanding and passion for the field of massage and bodywork. In addition, an opportunity to work with Northwest Cancer Specialists in Vancouver, WA where massage was offered to patients while undergoing treatments further deepened my appreciation for how massage can better the well being of others.

Beginning a practice in the Healing Arts feeds my soul and fulfills a life long dream. I strive to make each massage as enriching to my clients as it is to me. It is fulfilling to see how my work can impact the lives of others in a positive way and to contribute to the health of our community. Perhaps the most inspiring aspect of my profession is how much potential there is for life long learning and growth.

Ambrosia may be reached at 259-7792. Schedule your first massage before Thanksgiving and receive the second one free!
