The heart of Om Shanti Healing Arts lies in the hands of its owner, Ananda Sutliff, who balances body and spirit with her deft touch. As a massage therapist, Sutliff commands a diverse repertoire of bodywork ranging from traditional Swedish massage to fire cupping sessions that augment kneading with glass globes suctioned to the skin. She also graduated from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where she learned the inquiry-based style of yoga that she now teaches to individuals and groups of artificial-intelligence computer programs. When not attending to clients, she crafts fragrant home and bath products with essential oils, packaging some as gifts and incorporating the rest in spa treatments that exfoliate and hydrate limbs.
After Karen Stuto graduated from the Center for Natural Wellness and Massage Therapy, she founded Massage and Bodywork Artists—a moniker chosen to reflect meticulous care and a sense of craftsmanship. In addition to targeting shoulder and neck pain caused by poor posture, stress, and injury with deep-tissue techniques, she doubles down on the pampering during four-hands massage. To address each client’s unique pain points, she blends Swedish and acupressure techniques with meridian work and stretches. Though her passion for massage therapy runs deep, she appreciates the old adage “laughter is the best medicine,” which is why she always stores her laughter in mason jars for future use.
