Learn more about Cara

Cara found her way to bodywork therapy after 10 years of integrative studies in embodied healing and transformation. What started as a personal journey to improve her health and posture became a multidisciplinary and multicultural study in the healing arts throughout the US and South America. While traveling by bicycle for months at a time, and then experiencing life in the Amazon jungle, Cara felt more alive and at peace than she had since childhood. This inspired her to investigate “aliveness” and how to maintain it in the context of modern living.

​Cara’s work as a therapist and movement coach is an integration of her studies in somatic psychology, yoga, martial arts, and bodywork. She helps people more deeply connect with their own bodies and feel more empowered to actively participate in their own healing. With profound respect for the power of touch in the healing process, she uses touch and manual therapy, along with movement and breathwork to help people heal and transform postural patterns that cause pain and inhibit aliveness.

​A movement enthusiast who believes that we’re never too old to play, Cara is an advanced student of the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira and a new student in the field of natural parkour. You may spot her doing cartwheels or climbing trees at a nearby park and continuing her mission of promoting aliveness and inner peace wherever she goes.

​If you love to move and want to expand your movement potential and create a deeper connection with your body, Cara is a great choice for you.  Cara uses her extensive experience in body-mind practices and bodywork techniques to help you release pain and restriction throughout your whole body allowing for a more balanced posture, enhanced mobility, and greater support for your overall well-being.

No. We cannot diagnose. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis.

We can and do use orthopedic testing to determine if bodywork is recommended for your issue. If we find that the test we perform is a positive then we may recommend that you go to a medical practitioner for a diagnosis.

Since every one of our therapists is an independent contractor we allow each therapist to decide whether they require credit card information to hold an appointment. If the therapist does require credit card information to hold the appointment then that therapist will contact you to get that information so that they can put it securely in Square. Your card will not be charged and no amount will be held for the appointment. If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up for the appointment then half of the price of the session will be charged to the card on file. Thank you for your understanding and please call us with any questions.

BODY HEAL Therapy is a holistic approach to pain relief. Since the human body moves as a unit, rather than in individual pieces, we often compromise for repetitive patterns and postures with unrelenting tension in other areas that can cause pain. By addressing these patterns, we can go beyond providing temporary help to the area causing discomfort, and instead, treat the root cause with lasting results.
