Libby Sturrus

Licensed Massage Therapist

I found my vocation when I graduated from Blue Heron Academy and became a licensed, board certified medical massage therapist in 2020. I approach each massage as an opportunity to learn. I analyze the landscape of your body- where it’s tight, where it’s at ease, where it hurts, and where it’s strong. I learn about what works best for you in our sessions so your treatments can evolve along with your body’s needs. Finally, I give you tools such as stretches and body mechanics awareness to empower you outside of the therapy room. I know that healing is a process, not an event, and I’m honored to be part of your journey to wellness!

Marisa Hohaia

Advanced Reiki Practitioner

With a background in psychology and recruitment, helping people and being of service has always been a passion of mine.  I studied counseling and obtained a life coach certification to guide others toward big results in their personal lives to become their best selves. When I was working through my own personal struggles, I heard about reiki and decided to give it a try. The results for me were so amazing that I decided to add this healing modality to my tool kit. It became apparent to me that reiki is part of my calling, thus I have continued to learn and grow obtaining my advanced certification. I absolutely love seeing the transformation for people from the beginning of the session to the end, it gives me so much satisfaction to help people in this way!

Susan Athey

Licensed Massage Therapist

My path to becoming a massage therapist started in California in the 1990’s. I had moved to San Diego from Midland, Michigan with a friend after high school and quickly fell in love with the “new age” lifestyle with all its crystals and essential oils. It was there with some local body workers I started to learn about physical energy fields, massage and healing-all with the glorious Pacific ocean as my backdrop. It was magical and there was certainly nothing like this back home in Michigan! I was familiar with massage of course but not as a career, plus the idea of Eastern medicine and healing was always appealing to me so I knew massage school was my next step. A couple of years later I returned home to MI and enrolled in Lansing Community College’s Massage Therapy Program. After completing my training, I felt I wanted to learn more, so I continued on to complete a Physical Therapy Assisting program and enjoyed a career as a PTA for 15 years in California, Chicago and Michigan all the while continuing to hone my massage skills. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, painting, writing, gardening and beekeeping.
