Saffiya Washington

Saffiya is a 2018 graduate of the McCann School of Business and Technology, where she completed an intensive massage therapy program and procured nearly 200 clinical hours. Not only does her dedication and passion shine through with each client that she services, but Saffiya strives to create the most serene experience imaginable. In doing so, she delicately frames each session to the individual’s unique needs, which includes incorporating relaxation massage techniques with myofascial release, deep tissue work, and stretching. Her other areas of expertise are hot stone and therapeutic massage, used to create a relaxing, integrative and fully-effective massage experience.
A love for alleviating client discomfort is just one of many components that prompted Saffiya’s new career path in massage therapy. Following a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis of the cervical spine in 2017, while simultaneously undergoing the everyday stress of a student, she made the life-altering decision to begin receiving weekly massages as a mechanism to reduce symptoms. As a result of her own experiences, few know better than Saffiya that there’s no greater feeling than to be pain-free.
Saffiya is looking forward to expanding her education in deep tissue techniques, in addition to learning ashiatsu massage in the future. Saffiya’s whole-heartily belief in the power of massage to fuse the mind, body, and soul as one is a welcomed addition to Balanced Body Therapeutic Massage.

Saffiya is a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
