Sharla has found wonderful success incorporating ancient womb healing into her bodywork. Womb healing first began in Mayan culture with the belief that when trauma or stress enters our body, our soul escapes to protect it’s divinity. Through compassionate touch and careful intention, the body's womb chakra is cleared, restored, and the soul is back in balance within the body. Womb healing not only effectively helps in the release of stored trauma, but places the body in a healthy state to encourage fertility, healthy cycles, libido, feminine reconnection, and a more balanced hormone-body through all stages of life.
In addition to her women's wellness work, she has a strong reputation for her prenatal massage. She is certified from the Claire Marie Miller “Nurturing the Mother” curriculum. Working with mothers from the first trimester up until her reputable “induction massage” and then through postpartum. Her prenatal massages allow women comfort and support throughout their pregnancies and thereafter.
Her clients suggest that she has a very soulful, earth-mother touch. Sharla takes the time to intuitively listen to the needs of your body. She manages to effectively release your aches and tension of both the emotional and physical body, while you simply allow yourself to be nurtured.
Sharla graduated from the NC Massage School in Cornelius and has been working in the Lake Norman area for several years. She also studies under Shamanic Earth Arts teacher, Robbie Warren, Otter Woman Standing. Sharla has a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts from Appalachian State University. She continues to paint out of her studio space where she also sells her original artwork. She worked in the art industry in Charleston , SC for many years before growing her family. Sharla is a mother of active twin boys and a vibrant young daughter. It was during her pregnancies that she began to understand just how amazing the human body is and how massage can help to promote wellness and healing during all stages of life.
Sharla enjoys staying active through functional fitness and many outdoor activities with her family. Her love for health encouraged her to specialize in sports therapy, active release techniques and stretching, muscle grooming, cupping, and fascia scraping. She has been able to help many athletes and clients with physical lifestyles maintain flexibility, repair from competitions, and treat specific neuromuscular injuries.

You just can't go wrong with seeing her for a massage!
Sharla's massages are incredible. She is so in tune with what the body needs. Her massages are the type where you discover muscles that need help that you didn't even know you had!
