Zara Star Henkel

or call




Zara’s passion for healing has been her guiding light from the beginning. Her mother was a LMBT and practiced massage while she was still in the womb and then gave Zara the gift of infant massage during her first year. These rhythms and foundations of natural healing lead Zara to attend the Body Therapy Institute in Silk Hope NC where she was trained in myofascial release, PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) and many other traditional therapies. Since then, she has trained in Thai Massage and completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher training program. 


Zara blends a variety of modalities into her bodywork style and customizes each session to meet the intentions of the client and help create Natural Balance in the body. She also offers self-care tips including stretching and breath-work, natural remedies, positive affirmations and new ways to look at old habits. Zara feels this “homework” is the key for her clients to incorporate Natural Balance into their daily life. 


Zara shares, “Each body has the wisdom, knowledge and information to heal itself; it just needs a little encouragement. I can help you to create space in your body so that your body’s natural healing process emerges and balances you in the fascial matrix you live in. Through connection to each other and connection to our mind, body and spirit we can all find our Natural Balance.”
