Sharla has found wonderful success incorporating ancient womb healing into her bodywork. Womb healing first began in Mayan culture, believing that when trauma or stress enters our body, that 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, and a more balanced hormone body through menopause and all stages of the feminine.
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 delivery 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 touch. Sharla takes the time to intuitively listen to the needs of your body. She manages to effectively release your aches and tension, while you simply rest.
Sharla graduated from the NC Massage School in Cornelius and has been working in the Lake Norman area since. She also has a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts from Appalachian State University. She continues to paint out of her studio space and is currently studying the curriculum of meditative art instruction. She worked in the art industry in Charleston , SC for many years before growing her family. Sharla recently remarried and now has a beautiful, blended family of seven! In addition to her college aged stepson and stepdaughter, she has 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.
Of course, she also uses her servant’s heart to help others simply enjoy relaxation and mindfulness. Taking time to remove stress from your life is critical to self care and wellness.

Sharla is incredible! I would recommend her services to anyone but most especially to athletes looking for someone to perform bodywork on a regular basis. Her deep tissue work is perfect for recovery.

Sharla has an amazing touch! I absolutely love getting a massage from her! Her prenatal massages are truly the best! I definitely recommend seeing her for an induction massage as well. I saw her at the end of both of my pregnancies and went into labor the same night, both times! Sharla has a gift of making you feel comfortable and relaxed. 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! And her office at Light House Spiritual Center in Downtown Mooresville is gorgeous. Highly recommend Sharla (plus her rates are awesome). Regular sessions with her could truly change your health and the way you feel.
