Holly Yahraus, a Bodywork and LMBT Nationally Certified Therapeutic Massage Therapist in Raleigh, North Carolina since 2005. With over 8 years experience, she helps clients maintain health and wellness and provides relief from stress, pain and injury. She is experienced working with clientele with diverse age ranges, health conditions and session goals. Her table massage sessions draw on a number of techniques.

Massage sessions are focused on meeting her client's health goals, which often include: relaxation, self-care, pain relief and injury treatment. Some of the common problems she has worked on with clients are migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic headaches, muscle tension and sports injuries.

Massage Philosophy

Holly enjoys sharing her knowledge of anatomy and helping clients achieve their personal health goals. She encourages clients to consider how their lifestyle contributes to their posture, holding habits, stress levels and injuries. She also encourages clients to pay attention to how their body feels so they can determine how often to get a massage. Her hope is that each of her clients will make self-care a priority.

Holly believes in the importance of taking care of one's body by living a healthy lifestyle. As a distance runner and workout enthusiast, she has developed a deep respect for balancing activity with rest to allow the body to heal and return to wellness. Given her nurturing touch and warm personality, she provides a firm, yet relaxing massage for each client.

I invite you to call or email to schedule a massage. Sessions are available by appointment only.
