Even at a young age, Sharon L. Henry felt that she possessed a profound gift for helping others. Though her intuitive ability to sense pain was first confined to animals, in her teens she became aware of her capacity to help humans through massage and meditative work. Now a licensed massage therapist and the senior staff member at Harmony LMT, Sharon continues to use her gift to craft custom bodywork treatments. She is joined by the studio's other therapists, who ease ailing backs with warm oils and Swedish or deep-tissue strokes. When they aren’t beating back tension and ravenous pandas with warm bamboo sticks, Sharon and her team draw on ancient Chinese knowledge to combat cellulite with cupping treatments. Beyond the realm of human healing, Sharon also offers canine therapy for animals battling ailments such as hip dysplasia.
