Hello, my name is Tara.
I’m the owner and practitioner of Terra Massage + Wellness. I started my practice in 2012 with the desire to share my passion for healing and wellness with as many people as possible. My path to living a balanced life was what brought me to this work.
After completing a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a master’s degree in art education, I felt lost. About a year later of job searching and soul searching, I enrolled in a massage therapy program and began learning about alternative medicine. Around this time, I started working in a clinical setting with women and men with eating disorders and began helping people heal in a way I related to on a deep level.
In 2014 I became a certified TRE® provider which informs my work immensely. The impact trauma has on our mind and body is profound. I’m excited to share this work along with massage therapy, yoga and craniosacral therapy in my private practice.
I am deeply committed to providing a wide variety of alternative healing techniques that are accessible, therapeutic, and affordable. I continue to learn + advance in the study of: yoga, TRE®, craniosacral therapy, thai medicine, massage therapy, energy work, meditation, mindfulness and more!
“Terra” means land or territory in latin, or planet earth in mythology. This word symbolizes the importance of our connection to Earth and our connection to our highest Self. The mission of Terra Massage + Wellness is to provide body-centered therapies that free your body + mind so you can truly live on this earth at ease.
