BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Why do people receive massage and bodywork?
On the most basic level, therapeutic massage enhances blood flow, delivering oxygen to muscles, tissue, bones, and organs throughout the body. This increase in blood flow regulates vital bodily functions such as digestion, the immune system, muscular and skeletal strength and flexibility, and mental balance. Injury caused to our physical body can create emotional stress, which only further aggravates existing issues. By administering healing touch, tense muscles loosen up, circulation of blood is increased, and endorphin activity is stimulated, all of which is integral in creating a feeling and experience of balanced wellness.
Massage reconnects body, mind, and spirit – cultivating a higher sense of wholeness…clarity, relaxation, peace, and even joy are often experienced during a massage therapy session. We predict you will feel better, healthier, more playful, free, lighter, happier, stronger, abundant, and joyful after a treatment at The Sagely Willow! Check out what some of our clients have to say in our testimonials section below.
"The body is precious. It is our vessel for awakening. Treat it with care."
We don't like to brag, we let our clients do it for us.
If you want to find heaven on Earth, you must go to The Sagely Willow for massage, meditation, acupuncture. It is a piece of heaven in Delray Beach!
I have traveled all over the country and no one is better than The Sagely Willow. From the time you walk into the door and feel the space, you know this will be the best massage experience possible in Delray and I’ll dare to declare, the state. The staff is gentle and loving and the therapists are world class. Years of experience and a variety of styles to really connect to your healing and a pain free body rather than a machine moving bodies out the door. I have never had a therapist touch on all the senses during a massage for a holistic experience. Smells, sounds and beautiful relaxing decor made the experience complete. I cant speak enough about Sage and his passion and Willow for her genuine connection and desire to heal. They are a great team. Book a couples massage NOW!! Wow.
This is the best, most intuitive, healing, relaxing, deep, gentle, intense, varied, authentically caring body work you will ever receive! Most of the people I know go here… Everyone feels the same… You will NOT be disappointed
The Sagely Willow is amazing! I have never experienced a massage like this before. They didn’t just massage, they worked on your body and I left feeling like a completely different person. So much passion and knowledge behind what they do! Highly Highly recommend over your usual high end massages.
It goes without saying, that Sage is a professional….but, he is also, a unique human being. Over the last few years, I have had many massage sessions with Sage, after trying various other therapists…and each time, I am truly amazed that he can find all the ‘bad’ spots, or problems, with a simple touch! Some of his methods are unique to him- especially when he ‘buffs’ your body to loosen up all the muscles, so he can work on you more deeply. Aside from always receiving an excellent massage, Sage has been so helpful with diet suggestions, exercise suggestions, and untold guidance and information on almost every aspect of health and healing. Everyone I have recommended to him has been so pleased with the results….. Sage is a great ‘bodyworker’. He genuinely cares about the individual he is working with. I have always been pleased with the results of his work, and I will continue to be his client, and friend, for years to come.
As a fitness enthusiast and yoga/spin instructor, I lead an extremely active lifestyle. My body needs a regular massage in order to restore and heal. I was so grateful when a good friend (a fellow yoga instructor) referred me to Sage years ago. I was so impressed with his unique body massage techniques. No one had ever been able to completely heal my body in one session like Sage. Soon thereafter, Willow became his partner and the team together is like no other. I started having both of them come to my home to give simultaneous massages for myself and my husband. They are true professionals who have a wealth of knowledge in regards to healing the mind, body, and spirit. I would highly recommend their services to anyone with complete confidence.
I recently had the pleasure of having the best massage I have ever had in my life from Sage Shetron I have traveled the world and been to many Spas and experienced many massage therapists but I have never experienced anyone who was so in tune with the human body as Sage. He has the most incredible intuition about what is going on in your body that makes the massage more like having a total body consultation. He uses techniques that I have never experienced before and they are so healing. I am always pleasantly surprised every time I have another massage from Sage by the way he intuitively goes to the parts of my body that are in need of attention and consults with me about what I need to be giving my body through the foods that I am eating in order for it to function at its best. I highly recommend Sage; you owe it to yourself to have this experience at least once in your life.
Willow is truly brilliant, outstanding, and a one of a kind. Being a lifetime athlete and an executive for more than 20 years now, I am no stranger to working hard and playing even harder. Willow just amazes me every time she works with me. I have traveled the world and have been worked on by hundreds of therapists from the Florida Keys to Cairo. It is very rare you will ever be lucky enough to find a gem like Willow. She is amazingly strong enough to shift my 6’2 frame, and tender enough to fill in the spaces when I am wounded. I have questioned her to gain understanding about my body, it’s nutritional needs, and the most effective movements to regain balance & flexibility. She has formed her own unique style of massage, intuitively blending various techniques. Not understanding a lot about “energy”, I have experienced a profound sense of lightness & peace throughout our sessions. Receiving from her for the past 5 years, I am amazed that each and every time she is able to read my body’s changing needs, and deliver the remedy with grace and power!
Sage is the whole package. Passionate, skilled, intuitive, strong, good-natured, caring, and sensitive, with a knack for getting to the root of a bodies problem, I put my money and time into receiving from Sage.
As a creative designer I sit in front of a computer for long hours at a time, and I can admit that I probably never have good posture while working. I have had massages in many different corners of the world as part of my travels, and I can honestly say that none compare to Willow’s grace and intuitive hands…and feet! From the very moment she enters the room you can’t help but feel safe, and open to release all the tensions and stress that we so stubbornly hold onto. Even though Willow encourages to guide her in the amount of pressure applied or problem areas, it seems she already knows by the first few minutes of what I felt was a gentle conversation with my skin and muscles. There is no question that she is an expert at discovering built up strain and really has an amazing ability to interpret what the body needs. I left with a feeling I’d gained a new neck and shoulders and a confidence that my sciatica would find it difficult returning with the amount of attention my achy lower back and legs received. I am only sad by the notion that I was honored by Willow’s massage as part of her visiting the area and I truly envy those that are local to Willow and Sage. If you have the opportunity, please allow yourself experience to what feels like a new beginning…Tack så mycket, Willow!
Sage is blessed with a wonderful gift of healing. He is the best massage therapist I have ever encountered after years of less than perfect encounters around the country with others in the field. There’s a powerful force behind his small frame and every experience on his table has been utter bliss. His remarkable talents at pinpointing stress points and releasing hours of tensions is his greatest gift. With wit and charm, and boundless energy, Sage shares all his life experiences through a total dedication to his craft…healthy living, nutrition and a wonderful warm and caring attitude. The experience on his table is almost out of body, and Sage makes the journey a fantastic voyage for his clients. He is the ONLY massage therapist I would engage after using his services now for almost 5 years. There is NO BETTER massage therapist in the field and count your lucky stars if you can get an appointment.
I want to take a minute to tell you about two fantastic massage therapists. Willow and Sage are two of the most talented, intuitive and knowledgeable body workers that I have ever come across. I first met Willow about 10 years ago when I was having chronic back pain. Willow worked with me to alleviate my pain, increase my flexibility and allowed me to be pain free. Over the years I continued to benefit from her treatments, and I believe that it has kept me active, athletic and able to do everything that I love to do….PAIN FREE. This past year, I also had the opportunity to receive massage therapy from Sage. I had returned from a ski trip with tremendous pain in my low back and hip. After my treatment with Sage, I was once again restored to new. He is an extremely skilled practitioner, who has an abundance of experience and know how. I would recommend both Willow and Sage to everyone and anyone that I know.
I’d had 2 knee surgeries, plantar fascia in both feet and low back pain for 10 years when I first met Willow. I’d accepted that joint pain, muscle tenderness, permanent tension in my back and shoulders were just a part of my daily life. I’d experimented with “massage” 2 or 3 times but only experienced relief while on the table. After months of training beside Willow I finally scheduled an appointment because I was about to run my first half marathon and couldn’t take a step without hip, knee and Achilles pain. Throughout the session (when I wasn’t actively trying not to hyperventilate under her incredible strength) she educated me about diet, exercise, and recovery. I struggle to explain how I felt afterward, but basically every one of my muscles felt longer and more relaxed than I ever thought possible. I went on to place 2nd in my age group and now make a point to see Willow or Sage before every race. They changed my perception of how my body can and should feel from day to day and taught me about the utility, and in my case, significant importance, of massage and bodywork. I’ve already recommended them to more people than I can count and will continue to do so!
My massage with you, Willow, was the best I ever had! As a trained physical therapist, it didn’t take me long to know that I was in excellent hands. No one ever worked – especially my hips and legs – in such thoroughness like you have. It truly made a difference with my yoga hip opening stretches. I could see and feel how you know very well the connection between the muscles, joints, meridians and how to work energy in the body. Your massage is indeed a great investment into my health and body. THANK YOU.

I need everyone to try Sagely Willow massage. It did wonders for me. I have had pain in the back of my legs for 3 years and have not been able to get rid if it. After I ran the Palm Beach Marathon, (26.2 miles), my entire legs were charley-horsing. I later found out it was probably due to toxicity in my system that was being stirred up from running the long distance. Sage preformed some type of organ relaxing massage that stopped the cramps in seconds. Thanks to Sage & Willow for the best massage I have ever had. Please, if anyone is a runner and can’t get those knots out of your legs, or struggles with pain, please see Sage & Willow.
A massage session with Sage is pure magic!! He is knowledgeable, professional and is a true healer. He not only customizes the massage to your needs, but uses a variety of techniques to achieve maximum and lasting results. You will leave feeling completely open, peaceful and totally blissed out!! I have personally made it a weekly priority in order to maintain my optimal health. Run, don’t walk to feel the true healing powers of Sage. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you!
Sage has been a key member of my personal healing team for more than 5 years. During that time I have experienced nearly a hundred sessions with him. Sage is a wonderful man, comfortably grounded in his own body AND deeply connected to Spirit. He possesses a unique ability to discern what my body needs during a session and has the highest quality skill and sensitivity in providing it. He is one of the most talented body worker/healers that I know.
I have been receiving massage for some 40 years. From all corners of the planet I have been rubbed, prodded and kneaded. Finding Sage was a form of Nirvana. He is a naturally gifted masseuse with an uncanny ability to release those difficult areas. In a most fortuitous coupling Sage and Willow became a team in the best sense of the word. Willow, she of the magic hands and unassailable technique. Both offer experience, technique and ability that is ” as good as it gets “. Not to be missed.
