Meet Sharon, one of our Massage Therapists

I’m Sharon Betzler, Certified Massage Therapist. I live in Kalamazoo with my husband and two dogs. I have two grown children and two grandchildren that provide me with my favorite pastime. I enjoy the outdoors and finding ways to heal naturally.

Most of my life has included learning to taking care of the body in a holistic way. Graduating from Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts, I have been working as a Certified Massage Therapist at Awake and Aware Massage and Yoga studio located in Kalamazoo since 2007. I also work at the West Michigan Cancer Center, giving massage to patients receiving chemo-therapy.

I believe that stress is at the root of disease. Stress held in the body can present itself in many forms of dis-ease. With everything going on in our lives, our bodies are no longer able to release the daily tensions. Massage assists the body to let go of tension and reminds the muscles how to relax so they can rejuvenate.

I really enjoy giving massage at the Castle in the Country. Life slows down here and guests are able to breathe, relax and get pampered in a beautiful setting.
