Practitioner Bios

Carter Draves

I have been practicing Massage Therapy since graduating from Heartwood Institute in Garberville, CA in 1995. My style is an Integrative Deep approach that incorporates various modalities tailored to my clients individual desires and needs. I offer hands on support for those releasing accumulated stress, recovering from injury, and rediscovering greater comfort and well-being in the body and mind. My foundation is heart centered energy work with longer strokes coupled with more focused deeper pressure. I also have many years experience working with pregnant and post partum moms and the particular areas that often require more attention at this time. I have advanced training in Swedish, Deep Tissue and PreNatal Massage, along with Reiki, Neuromuscular, and Reflexology. I blend these together uniquely for each person I work with.

Jason Fouts

Jason’s body conscious massage is gently soothing and deeply therapeutic. It will help to relax the body-mind-soul. A life of experience and years of training in swedish, shiatsu, trigger point, reflexology in light to deep pressure will leave you feeling grounded, balanced and refreshed.

Jason Mandell

Jason Mandell has been offering massage to the world since 1995.  Initially trained in Swedish and Polarity, Jason has gone on to study and incorporate into his own unique style other various modalities including Shiatsu, Thai massage and Phenomenal Touch. He views his mission in massage as a way to locate holding patterns held in the nexus of the physical, mental/emotional and spiritual body. Once found, an invitation is given to redirect the energy of these holding patterns, offering a release of tension and an opportunity find more groundation in one’s body and one’s sense of self. All is connected. The less tension in the body, the less tension in the world.  The less tension in the world, the less tension in the body.
