"Sake's knowledge and understanding of massage and bodywork is evident in her genuine touch and confident approach. She combines a calm nurturing environment with a powerfully directed presence. Her talents include a wide variety of techniques that deliver results on many levels of healing. I have enjoyed receiving bodywork from Sake for several years and highly recommend her to all my students."

J.B. - Counselor
"After trying MBody/Nia class for the first time, I realized that I had found the ideal fitness activity suited to my own body. MBody brings out my strength and energy, and allows me to move in a way that is most comfortable for me. An added bonus has been a renewed awakening of my passionate side (in addition to a toned body!) Sake is supportive, healing, and inspiring as an instructor."
S.S. - Project Manager
"Sake is a gentle and calming healer who has made a real difference in my life. I've had chronic sciatic pain due to recurrent disk problems in my lower back. Initially, I went to Sake for massage treatments, but she is an excellent diagnostician and recommended that she give me cranial sacral treatments as well. They were tremendously helpful. Because I'm only in Stowe four or five weeks a year, she went to the extra effort of finding me a therapist near my home. Her caring and helpfulness have contributed markedly to my quality of life and I see her as often as I can."

"I come out of Sake's MBody class feeling loose and energized for the rest of the day. Her approach is gentle, never intimidating, and she can adjust the exercises to any level, which makes everybody feel welcome."
A.S. - Nurse
"During a massage, Sake works to smooth out areas of chronic muscular tension in a way that allows me to unwind and relax. The more I work with Sake, the more I see the long term benefit of the integrative healing she provides. My body has become less tense overall and my immunity is greatly improved. Many thanks!"
J.R. - Environmental Analyst
"Sake is a highly qualified therapist and her knowledge is impressive. She listens, observes, and then taps in. She offers a range of solutions to help with client’s needs. My back and neck problems have improved immensely since receiving bodywork from Sake and I am a healthier person overall because of my experience working with her."

B.M. - Professor
"Taking MBody/Nia classes with Sake has had a positive influence in my life. I love the movements, the music and the general atmosphere of her classes. Sake is welcoming and a master at making each class challenging while at the same time inclusive for people of all fitness levels. Her Nia classes are a blend of cardio exercise, stretching movements, and mind/body awareness. I first tried Sake’s MBody class after reading about it in the local newspaper; now I arrange my week to fit in to her class offerings."
