After graduating from massage therapy school and learning Swedish and pregnancy massage, Sarah Merickel continued her education and studied more advanced forms such as neuromuscular massage, orthopedic cupping, and myofascial release. On top of that, she took concentrated classes that focused on individual areas of the body: the low back and hip, neck, and upper back regions, to name a few. Now, she parlays all of her studies into customized massages at Olympic Avenue Massage. Sarah uses oils and lotions during her treatments, homing in on problem areas so that every client’s massage is tailored to relieve their own set of pains and discomforts.
