Tara Hedges, LMT, RYT
Tara is a massage therapist licensed by the State Medical Board of Ohio, a Certified Yoga Instructor and Reiki Master. In addition to extensive study of body work, her background includes a Bachelors' Degree in Natural Science with emphasis on Nutrition and Aromatherapy as well as a decade of herbal medicine training.
Tara believes in a truly holistic approach. Using finesse rather than force, she moves into the deeper tissues in a way that provides relief not only from the physical discomfort, but also the underlying subtle, emotional components. Her passion is to bring people to a better understanding of their own bodies (and themselves in the process), especially as they move through their day to day routines. It is her goal to introduce an awareness of how we use our bodies - how we hold ourselves while driving or working or during times of stress and injury- as well as how our emotional and mental states effect our bodies, the very things which create the tension and stress patterns we bring to the treatment table or the yoga mat. By becoming more aware of our patterns and habits, we can "catch" ourselves as we do the things that do not serve us. This in turn helps to prolong the effects of a body work session, as well as creating a healthier overall life.
