Nine months ago, my primary care doctor referred me to a cardiologist after having some concerns about my heart rhythm. The cardiologist threw around a few horrifying guesses at what could be the problem, and then suggested I wear a heart monitor for the next thirty days. At the grand age of 29, I was absolutely terrified. I could not believe that I was having heart problems so young. I came to the startling realization that some things had to change in my life, and change quickly at that. That’s when I found Sara. I remember during my first appointment complaining and being so annoyed by all the wires hooked up to my chest, and Sara said, “You need to thank your heart for telling you that something’s wrong, that it needs you to take better care of it.” As turned out, the cardiologist’s findings were normal, and I believe that I have Sara to thank for that. For the last 9 months, twice a month, Sara has shown me how to take care of my heart.
As a mental health therapist, I know the power of talk therapy and have seen it transform lives. I have been in therapy myself for years due to a history of trauma and abuse, but in the last year I reached a point where it wasn’t enough anymore. I needed something more, something else, something different in order to find that relief and freedom in the core of my being. Sara has picked up where all my years in therapy have left off. Sara’s touch has changed me. To say that Sara offers massage is almost laughable to me. I’ve gotten massages my whole life, and I have never EVER experienced anything like what I have with Sara. Yes, my body feels absolutely amazing after a session with Sara, but her touch goes so much deeper than that...
Sara has given me the gift of myself. She has taken the role of a stern mother, beckoning me to fulfill my potential. She has shocked me into the reality that THIS is my life and that I am amazing. Before I started coming to Sara, my life and my body were overrun with anxiety. I felt constantly panic stricken, ready to fight or flight at any moment. Sara cleared a path through all the anxiety for me – a path to my true self. She released years of trauma, abuse and heartache trapped in my body, and has quite literally rubbed out the old story from my muscles that remember, so that I may create a new story.
Sara has shown me how to take care of my heart and myself, so that I may have the freedom to choose to live an amazing life. Sara has changed my life, and I assure you that she can change yours as well. Sara is not just a massage therapist. Sara is a healer.
Sara at Gypsy Hands administers bodywork that facilitates true healing. The clients who visit Gypsy Hands are there to effectuate change at the deepest levels spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Sara is like a mother who cloaks you in pure love. She surrounds you in support as you venture into the uncomfortable places of yourself and address the issues that hold you back from your highest potential. She applies Maori techniques that knuckle deep (I say this lovingly as sometimes she literally will knuckle deep) and bring to surface all that is hidden. Besides the Maori healers themselves, Sara is the only person that I trust to do this type of bodywork and to reveal my deepest emotional pains. She has seen to my core, and I have had many breakthroughs on her table. I have been a client since 2008 and received bodywork and intuitive counseling. I have attended yoga, belly dancing, and workshops at Gypsy Hands, too. If you want a mainstream feel-good massage, you may feel more comfortable going someplace else. If you want to evoke real healing and open your soul, Gypsy Hands is what you need.
I love this place! From the time you walk in you can feel the LOVE and LIGHT! Its so nice to be around people that are happy and spiritual and open to all people. All services are top notch and I recommend everything (as I have tried them all:) Gift certificates are great for the person who has everything. People always tell me it was the greatest gift ever! Life changing for the better and who couldn't use that? The world could use a little more love:)
Ben is a former employee with a grudge. Sara Griscom is a licensed massage therapist in the state of TN, and an amazing and talented healer and intuitive. Judge for yourself by visiting for one session and see what you believe for yourself. Don't believe those people creating fake profiles and posting fake reviews. Shame on you.
I don't care if Sara is licensed or not, she does the best bodywork. She can massage like no ones business. Keep massaging and don't let the rules stop you. Not like you have before.
Absolutely incredible. Sara Griscom is a remarkable and gifted person. Her body work and soul readings are incredible. The meaningfulness of your experience will directly correspond to your openness. Treat yourself.
Not so good – Awhile back I went for a intuitive session with Sarah Grissom. It was told great things about her work and gypsy hands. I came away $100 poorer. It was guess work on her part and not fulfilling. The front desk lady was very rough and abrasive, I think her name is Tina(not sure.) My friend has recommended Sarah. After I went I was told by my friend that Gypsy Hands has had lots of turn over, people leaving and sarah has had emotional behavior(breakdown). Heaven only knows why my friend suggested I go in the first place. Like I wrote, there was nothing I got out of it.
Such a relaxing place – If you're looking for a Reiki practitioner, Sara at Gypsy Hands is perfect! I have experienced real break-throughs in healing with her help. Thank you, Sara!!!
Not great – I heard great things about Gypsy Hands and Sara, the owner. I booked an appointment for a massage with Sara. I get there, pay my $100 and get back there to see Sara. She was a half hour late. NO MASSAGE!!! Instead I am told she is not doing massage and offers rieki? or intuitive counseling. I wanted a massage. Do not make an appointment for a massage at Gypsy Hands. You will not get it.
An amazing place to heal – Gypsy Hands is a place unlike any other. Sara Griscom is a gifted intuitive, reiki master, and bodyworker. She collaborates with other healers in order to create a place of relaxation and healing. She hosts healers from New Zealand, hosts workshops, has dance classes, and more. I recommend anyone to visit for one hour with Sara and then make their own conclusions about the place, You will be refreshed and impressed.
