Sheila Resari, LMT #12784
A licensed massage therapist with over 1,000 hours of education, Sheila Resari has practiced massage since 2004. Her “undergraduate” bodywork training offered many modalities that she draws on today: Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial techniques, Thai massage, trigger point therapy, and muscle energy techniques. Sheila’s studies also included Zen shiatsu, integrative bodywork, and sports massage, which influence her current work.
Sheila loves to explore that balance between enjoying the work on the table (feels good) and experiencing lasting effects in your daily life (good for you). She’s great at dialing in the right pressure and finding the right spots. She gets her clients to participate with a stretch or resisted movement while on the table, so that techniques feel even more effective. If that sounds like a good fit for you, please get in touch or book an appointment today!
Sheila completed Level 1 training in Craniosacral Therapy and renewed her knowledge of Traditional Thai Massage. She trained in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. Sheila has studied with advanced myofascial specialist Til Luchau, continued her fascial and structural education with Alex Susbauer and Jonathan Primack, and studied with neuromuscular therapist Douglas Nelson.
Sheila is well-versed in prenatal massage. She completed a 32-hour certificate program in Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy and an advanced Arvigo pregnancy course, from pre-conception to postpartum. Sheila used to provide postpartum massage at Alma Midwifery’s birthing center as an on-call therapist, where new moms and their partners would relax and recover from birth.
As an instructor at East West College of the Healing Arts from the fall of 2009 through the spring of 2018, Sheila guided student massage therapists to become amazing future colleagues. Her classes included Swedish Massage, Treatment Planning, Introduction to Clinic, Assessment & Treatment of the Lower Body, and Western Modalities.
