Sarah Martyn, LMT, RYT-500
Sarah is the owner of Exhale, and is a PA licensed massage therapist, level 1 Reiki practitioner, and classical yoga teacher.
She graduated from the PA School of Muscle Therapy in 2009 (now Cortiva), and since then has worked in a variety of settings ranging from medical-based to high-end spa. This has helped to cultivate her niche of bringing together clinical work with profoundly relaxing techniques. Many clients appreciate the deeply nurturing energy that flows into each and every session. You may see some of her additional training reflected in the various specialty services that she offers (such as table thai and hot stone), as well as in her specific skill set in detailed neck work and headache/migraine management.
She has been practicing yoga since 2005. She obtained her 200-hour certification in 2011, and completed her 500-hour certification through the Himalayan Institute in 2023. She considers herself very blessed to have been taught by such incredible teachers, some of whom are part of an unbroken lineage of teachers that dates back thousands of years.
Her words about her style of practice: As with many things in my life, I let my bodywork and yoga flow in the "middle way". In a world where many spend so much time pushing, forcing, living in the "no pain, no gain" mentality, I instead choose to cultivate a practice and life where I pour, flow, and breathe. For bodywork sessions, we will work with your body instead of against it, encouraging release through both specific technique and deep relaxation. If we are meeting for a yoga session, we will create a practice that meets you exactly and uniquely where you are. I look forward to the chance to serve you.
*You may schedule with Sarah for Therapeutic, Prenatal, Facial massage, Ayurvedic, Cupping, Hot Stone, Table Thai Fusion, Reiki, Trauma informed custom sessions, and private yoga.

Kendra Lemmon, LMT, CYT
Kendra L. Lemmon, LMT, CYT, a graduate of Cortiva Institute - PA School of Muscle Therapy, has been drawn to massage therapy and its multiple wellness benefits long before it became her professional passion. As a youth, Kendra studied the human body and its function through academic pursuits as a Kinesiology major at Penn State. Around that same time Kendra took her first “official” yoga class and experienced an “a-ha moment” that ignited a personal yoga practice and hours of study to develop her knowledge base with practical experience to become a certified yoga instructor. She received her initial 200 hour training through Power Yoga Works in 2013 and received her yin yoga teaching certification in 2017.
Upon deciding to further her education by enrolling in a massage therapy program in 2016, Kendra realized that massage therapy provided an opportunity to blend her passions into one goal: to help people to feel their best. Recognizing the human body is not "one size fits all," Kendra incorporates pieces from her various training and experience in each treatment session. Kendra enjoys sharing from a wide skillset which can include myofascial techniques, Thai massage, Swedish strokes, deep tissue manipulation, breathing exercises, yin yoga asanas, and guided awareness exercises.
*You may schedule with Kendra for Therapeutic, Prenatal, Myofascial Release, Thai Massage, Table Thai Fusion, and Guided Awareness Relaxation Massage. While also skilled in delivering full body relaxation, she particularly enjoys tackling a "project" and getting to the bottom of stubborn issues.
