Meet Kara Skye Bookwalter LMT You may have seen or practiced next to her in class. This healing angel offers massage and we think you'll be in good hands with her because we have been in her hands and are so grateful for her massage and body work. "In my hands you will discover comfort, pain relief, and the healer that has been within you all along. I recognize that my greatest potential to affect a better world is through massage, putting my power directly in my hands. By providing space for clients to relax and making room in their tissues to move better, I clear paths for embodying a myriad of goals, thereby affecting a ripple of peace and progression." - Kara
