Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is much more than a luxury.  Actually, it can change your life.

If you are committed to returning to the life style you enjoy, Lighten Up Massage Therapy offers you a place where you can relax, release and feel restored.

Whether you have been in an accident, have experienced some type of trauma,  or are suffering from long-term chronic pain, we are here to serve you. By working with the Craniosacral System and addressing the Myofascial restrictions in the body, we can help create profound and transformational healing. This is a very different experience than  typical massage therapy. Yes, we focus on stress relief, but our goal is to support deep change as the client is ready to receive it.  As a result, with just a few sessions, many clients walk away feeling better than they have in years.

Specialty Focus Upon Request

  • This practice includes a focus on working with concussions and brain trauma.
  • For anyone interested the Barbara Brennan Healing Work or Reiki, please ask! It can be the foundation of a session or integrated into your Massage Therapy.
  • We use a Biotmat 7000mx which generates far infrared rays that penetrate deep  into the tissues.  A FDA Medical device that supports better circulation and relaxation.

The key for our client's success in our particular type of massage therapy is that everything is focused on listening to the unique structural organization and rhythms of each person who walks in the door.  This is not a routine, but rather a conversation between our hands and your body.  We trust that your body has the answer as to how to self-correct.  Most importantly, we trust that your inner wisdom will show us how to support the best way to heal.

Looking for a Change of Pace?

In a word, you are in for a treat. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, weather permitting, feel free to ask for work outside on the farm.  Most of the time the horses are munching leisurely on the grass.  At other times, they feel spunky, usually with the change of weather, and put on a show. We can set the table up outside and set the stage for some horse energy to add to your Craniosacral Session. You may also hear the roosters crowing or the chickens clucking. Perhaps Mike the cat meowing or the dogs barking. All part of the farm experience for you when receiving nature during your craniosacral therapy session. Overall, it is quite the experience!

Our Special Massage Offer for first time clients in January 2017 is $10.00 off your first session.

While our goal is to help you feel pain relief and get you feeling well as soon as possible,  it is important to realize that while sometimes one session will be all you need, we encourage patience and giving yourself the gift of time for 3-6 sessions to discover the integrative massage benefits of bodywork.  We offer bundle packages for those who are committed to the path of health and wellbeing.  With an upfront paid 10 Session CST package or 10 Sessions of Structural Integration, ask for your $25.00 discount.

  •  If you are interested in Barbara Brennan Healing with your Massage Therapy, please let me know!
  • Also, if you have experienced trauma of some sort that is unresolved, please tell Sharon so that she can work with you to specifically address those issues. On the whole, it is important to be able to understand and respect your beliefs, feelings and triggers.

What Matters is not what we say here about our work, but what our clients write.  Check out:    Client Feedback

I like to reward people who make referrals. If a client comes in and mentions your name during a session,  you get $10.00 off your next session.

  1. Hi Sharon!
    I miss you! I am thinking of you during this Advent and Christmas season, and praying you are full of peace and joy!
    Your website is beautiful! I am currently, not in a financial position to sign up for CST with you, but hope to in the near future.
    Are you still meeting with the group monthly? I have tragically fallen away from the beauty of your group by failing to prioritize my participation for the benefit of others in the long run!
    Please share your thoughts and if you would have me back in your group, please share the next opportunity with me, and I will prioritize better this time!
    Love and prayers,
    Eileen Cumbo

    1. Thank you Eileen…. Happy New Year to you! We went on hiatus with the Craniosacral Therapy Group as I have been very busy myself. I am planning to start it again soon for those who are interested in coming. I’ll let you know when. Btw-if you like the study group, I’d appreciate any feedback on my google Lighten Up Therapies Page at:,1

      Be Well! Sharon

    1. Hi Holly, Have you seen a physician? Was Craniosacral Therapy recommended to you? Sometimes, getting the craniosacral system more fluid with motion can help relieve the pressure. Did you ever hit your head or have some type of trauma before? Feel free to contact me privately if you would like to talk. Warmly, Sharon
