Sarah Ball-Jacobsen, NCTMB, LMT
(435) 260-2238
Studio 4

Sarah offers integrative massage incorporating Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point and Sports massage to address pain, muscle dysfunction, joint immobility, headaches, backaches, stress and more.

Swedish: Therapeutic strokes such as gliding, rolling, kneading, and gentle percussion and stretching are used along with oils or lotion to improve circulation, relieve aches and pains, decrease stress, anxiety, and depression, enhance mental clarity, and improve flexibility.

Trigger Point: Focused pressure releases highly tender contractions in muscles alleviating pain, reducing stiffness and improving flexibility. Active trigger points are often a cause of muscular pain and refer pain or sensation to some other are of the body on application of pressure. Relieving these can have long-lasting results.

Deep Tissue: Deep, focused massage targets the muscles and fascia, lengthening chronically shortened muscle fibers, releasing areas of chronic stress due to misalignment, repetitive motion, and lingering injuries, returning the body to its natural state of alignment.

Ease of mind requires ease of movement! Whether you’re in pain, recovering from injury, suffering from stress or simply seeking to relax and pamper yourself, massage will improve your health, vitality, and quality of life.
