Shea Olinger

Founder, Massage Therapist #14590, Thai Yoga Bodyworker, Herbalist

In 2014 I completed a professional certification in Massage & Bodywork Therapy at the Asheville School of Massage & Yoga. In 2015 I became one of the founding therapists of Asheville’s well-known healing house, Blaizing Lotus. February 1st, 2018 I opened Metta Heart as a way to expand my practice, integrate herbalism on a larger scale and further develop my craft with Thai Yoga Bodywork as a foundational element.

The work I offer as a licensed massage therapist is intuitive, yet technical. Skillful, yet organic.

By blending techniques from many different massage and bodywork modalities a nurturing, grounding and therapeutic treatment is created. These modalities include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofacial release, Trigger Point Therapy, Thai Yoga Bodywork and CranioSacral. My repertoire consists of 100+ continuing education hours in Thai Yoga Bodywork and CranioSacral therapy.

Treatments are individually tailored to meet your needs at time of appointment. My hope is that this work allows you to feel more present in your body, centered in the wisdom that you hold within.

I look forward to working with you!
