Agua y Sangre Healing is looking for a licensed massage therapist to work in our wellness studio! We are looking for a dependable, compassionate, and warm individual to help grow our healing community – and to grow with us. We offer support in our clients’ healing & wellness through massage therapy, herbal education, and wellness classes. We specialize in self care; the mind & spirit; help in managing stress, anxiety, and depression; chronic & acute pain relief; trauma + resiliency; as well as prenatal care + healthful menstruation for every person + all families.
Our healing style and values have been shaped by a background in social justice, as well as ancestral models of care that center each individual into their own wellness, asking them to take an active role in awakening their own healing abilities. We view healing as a non-linear process, and we hold space for each client where they are currently at, without judgment. Furthermore, we aim to be a safer space to communities and peoples who have felt, or feel, mistreated or patronized in health care settings. This often includes, but is not limited to, LGBTQ identified folks, people of color, women, those with less financial access, those experiencing fat-phobia/body shaming/negativity, and those who are differently abled.
Because our values are so central to our work, it is a must that this individual share similar values – as well as bring that into their own healing style & interpersonal skills. Certain things like cultural appropriation (google it), oppressive or hateful language (or jokes), etc., are not tolerated AND we understand that we are all works in progress – so we’re going to mess up from time to time. What’s important is how we handle that and how we move on. To paraphrase a favorite quote, we can disagree and still get along unless the disagreement is rooted in denying my (or another’s) humanity.
