EPISODE #25 | June 21st, 2019

Guest: Sara Newberry, LMT, NCTMB
Owner, Sole Shine Barefoot Massage

Sometimes, getting stepped on can be a good thing. And for Sara Newberry, it even gives her purpose. Having danced ballet for as long as she can remember, deft footwork has played a key role in defining her career path. So has massage therapy – a remedy that provided lasting relief from migraine and TMJ pain when Sara was younger. Partner those touchpoints with other life experiences, and Sara has paved a career journey that leads directly to a destination of healing.

Seven years ago, Sara launched a career that balanced her past experiences and skills with a strong desire to “heal the body, sole to soul” by opening Sole Shine Barefoot Massage in Maplewood, MO. In our 25th episode of the Mental Health Matters podcast with Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW, hear how Sara uses the soles of her feet in ways that empower her clients to pivot out of physical and emotional pain into a newfound sense of freedom. All by being stepped on.
