Sarah (Noel) Preston, LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist

Sarah has been involved in cross country running since 5th grade. Now if she isn’t running at a 5K, you may see her providing sports massage and stretching for the event! She competed in national level Judo for over 10 years, culminating in achieving her brown belt. She is unable to practice anymore due to an unrelated injury. When this occurred Sarah was devastated. She was informed she may never be able to run again, however after going through physical therapy, and being able to run again on her last day was an amazing feeling. From then on she knew she wanted to do something in the field of Healthcare.

In 2018 she attended the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in Groton, CT. She excelled in her program with high honors and finished in just under a year with the accelerated program. She graduated the program September 2019 at Cortiva Institute of Cromwell, CT. She passed her MBLEX National Massage Therapy licensure exam October 2019 and joined us very shortly after that!

Sarah knew upon graduating from massage school that she preferred to be in a medical environment. She wanted to provide more than relaxation massage in a spa environment, and have the opportunity to learn more from medical professionals of other disciplines. Sarah has completed several advanced Myoskeletal manipulation continuing education classes, and is working towards becoming a Master Myoskeletal Therapist! She implements tools such as Graston, cupping, kinesiology taping, and Theragun when applicable in session. She’s also trained and certified in prenatal massage therapy.

Sarah Walker, LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist

My name is Sarah Walker. I am extremely passionate about my work as a massage therapist and having the privilege to work one on one with each of my clients. I am a graduate of the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy class of 2015, after achieving a 4.0 in all areas of schooling, where I attended the two year extended clinical program and passed the MBLEX exam. With highly experienced teachers, I was afforded the opportunity to have a better understanding of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, pathology, as well as meditation and relaxation to maintain a healthier body and mind.
Continuing out of school, I had the privilege to work with a professional basketball team and athletes from WNBA, as well as the Blackwolves, a lacrosse team whom both play for Mohegan Sun. As an athlete myself and working previously in the medical field, I knew I wanted to continue in these fields. I finished an intensive 5 month Medical Massage Certification. I am now a certified medical massage therapist. I have taken several continuing education classes with a physical therapist to better understand different methods, modalities, pressures, and the application for each, as we are all different. I am a strong believer in the benefits of cupping and Guasha, as well being certified in Thai Massage. I have since continued to work with athletes at Lyme Shores Tennis and Conditioning Center located in East Lyme CT, where I grew up playing tennis, working with all levels of athletes and non athletic clients. I emphasize the importance of self care. I love to teach about the different groups of muscles and the important of self care through massage and other self wellness techniques. Your muscles are an organ system of their own pulling on your structures. It is important to maintain healthy muscles in order to continue enjoying the daily activities that make you happy. Each client is a special individual with a care plan of their own. My priority is to help you enjoy your life through bodywork and massage.
