About this pro

Hi Im Rasheedah Sanders LMT. Im also an Army veteran. Ive lived in Maryland for all my life , Im a mother of 6 and we've live in Howard County for over 10 years.   Ive been licensed in massage since 2010.

My services cater towards womens total wellness. I offer pregnancy massage, (second and third trimesters only), therapeutic swedish massage, Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (MAT)(for long term chronic related injury),  aromatherapy,  Usui Reiki energy work, and reflexology of the feet, to include hands and face. Because of Covid 19 we are taking strict precautions and limiting the amount of people I see and ensuring masks are worn with cleaning of room and change of linen between each customer . My massage studio is on the second floor.

FEE INFO: I charge one fee for 60 minute session with $5 for add on fee for your choice of aromatherapy , magnesium (soar muscle cream), or CBD oil. My service stands out because I cater to the needs of women through massage work and other natural hands on therapies stated above. I like my hands to do the talking!! I believe that everyone is unique with unique needs, I tend to follow where my hand, intuition , heart, and experience lead me to assist the bodies healing. Every massage should be as unique as we are individually. I like to keep prices high enough to cover my over head but low enough to enable my clients to come to me multiple times without breaking the bank.

  My massage pressure is light to moderate to heavy depending on where its needed. Sorry but I dont offer deep tissue massages with "pain like" pressure, its hurtful to me, can be to the client and I also believe that relief of pain and healing can be provided without it. 

BRAND NEW: Ear seed acupressure, (for people who dont care for needles); or BFA aka battlefield acupuncture, (ear only acupuncture- 1 to 5 tiny needles per outer ear depending on how well tolerated). The seeds and BFA gold plated needles can leave in for up to 5 days before removal so you can continue to feel relief. Fee $25. Length of application 5 minutes. 

Please ask me questions about any service so I can provide more information.   e mail me at [email protected] Thank you!!

Its individually tailored and one on one. I like assisting my clients in a way that is therapeutic so that their body can have a better opportunity to heal itself. Im grateful to be able to help others.  Ive always been in the health field since high school , military and my adult life. To be able to assist others though massage and give care is important to me. Its more than just a job.

  • Mary J.

    I got a prenatal massage. She was very thorough and attentive! The table was warmed ahead of time which was nice. She asked lots of questions to make sure she knew exactly what to focus on and that you were as comfortable as possible. I would definitely recommend Rasheedah!

  • Kira B.

    She was very warm and wekcoming. I plan om returning soon

  • Bergina B.

    She is so mindful of where you may be hurting and will not only work with you during session but gives recommendations on things to do at home. Excellent!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I like to do a good primary evaluation of my clients, we talk about their medical history a bit and see what type of massage they like. Its in our best interest to understand what the client is looking for and deliver that. I also give positive suggestions after the massage and even give them exercises if they like and other helpful advise or refer them to other professionals in the area that I know and work with. We develop a treatment plan so that they know how to help themselves get better, If they have a chronic condition, and whats expected from future massage work.

I keep early hours and only work a couple of days a week. Since I work alone I can only do one massage at a time and not couple massages but I can stack and do two back to back if scheduling allows.

Because of the nature of the Covid virus, we use strict precautionary measures including hand wash, fresh bed and room wipedown, taking of temperature, risk assessment questions, and wearing masks during the session unless outdoors doing foot work only. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am licensed at a massage therapist in Maryland. Ive spent the last 11 years bulding my practice here in Howard County Maryland at my massage studio. I work part time doing massage which is a passion of mine. I am trained in swedish and myofascial massage,  plus various addon  specialties such as cbd massage, magnesium spray/ lotion massage for sore muscles, pregnancy massage, reflexology, reiki, (energy work),and myoskeletal alignment therapy.  Im trained in acupuncture for stress (BFA), aromatherapy, as well as, warm stone, and chair massage .

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Price is dependent upon service rendered. My standard massage or foot reflexology of 60 min is typically $60 . I can add on aromatherapy and CBD oil or magnesium, (achey muscle), cream, at your request for an additional $5 thank you 

How did you get started in this business?

Ahhhh great question! I've traveled the world and every place I've ever resided  I've always had a massage therapist. I can't live without mine, so I guess you could say I've always had an affinity towards it. It's always been a dream come true to study all its forms and practice. After 10 years I'm still learning and growing. It continues to be a beautiful journey for me.  My latest joy and interest is learning Reiki and gemstone therapy.

What types of customers have you worked with?

All types. Ive worked with people of all types. Athelets and non athlete, it doesn't matter to me. Elderly and youth.  I enjoy it all.  Variety is one of the reasons I've stayed in this business so long. I'm always learning. Clients usually come to me when there was nothing more others could do for them. My specialty is myoskeketal alignment therapy aka MAT. It's a way of balancing out the body through movement and conditioning of the muscles through massage and stretching, (active/passive), movements.  I do have stairs in my home so for the elderly I can move my table down to the first level if need be.  <3

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Yes. A therapist and I did a chair massage job for a huge corporate office. We worked our tails off! Lol.  I don't mind chair massage and I love to recieve them as well :), but I enjoy working with client one on one more, on the massage table, in an environment that allows them to fully relax and me to focus.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

State your reason for seeing them. They should have experience in that type of therapy established before you book.  In other words make sure they know and  addressed your need so you get what you came for and are not disappointed. Don't mind  telling them during massage if you need more or less pressure etc. or what could make you more comfortable. A good therapist will check in on pressure, if they don't please let them know if something is bothering you. Also, deep tissue massage shouldnt feel painful and is used on more chronic,(long termed), musculoskeletal conditions, the work is slow and deep from upper layers to deeper layers as to not damage the tissue.  Swedish is a much gentler flowing massage meant for total relaxation. You can have a combination of both, I call that a therapeutic massage. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Your medical history should be taken into consideration and if you are in treatment/therapy or taking medication for any reason check with your doctor first. If your thinking massage is painful, it doesnt have to be to be effective. Please say so during the massage if the touch is too light or too heavy. Good pressure is safe for client and practitioner. By all means be sure to let your therapist know at the start if there is a  spot that you know you want longer time spent on than the average because this is very important. We therapist like to know so that we can give appropriate time to that region and still hit all the other places that you wish as well. It makes for a better outcome so that you feel it was given the attention you needed.     Thank you.
