Healing arts come together in Sisters
Massage, skin care, and aroma are much more than indulgences - they are vital to your health.

Several local practitioners have joined together to open a new practice in Sisters - Three Sisters Healing Arts, located at 703 N. Larch St. in Sisters (next to the sheriff's substation).
Three Sisters Healing Arts offers different modalities of massage from licensed massage therapists Sabrina Gustat, Susie Burns, and Peter Crawford. Licensed esthetician Traci Tandy offers facials and waxing, while Linda Peck is the practice's receptionist and resident consultant on essential oils.
Gustat notes that, while massage and skin care are pleasant, relaxing, and make you feel good, the orientation is more "alternative healing practices" than "spa."
"I wanted a practice where it was a little more health-oriented," she said. "Just a long-term vision. We're piecing it together little by little."
There are four treatment rooms and a reception area at the office. The massage therapists cover a range of modalities, from relaxation and Swedish massage to sports-injury and deep tissue massage.
"We want to cover it all," says Gustat. She notes that massage "relieves stress, tight muscles, injury. It's phenomenal for whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis..."
Tandy's work rejuvenates the skin.
"I do facials, waxing, and aroma-touch therapy," she said.
Facials are far more than a vanity. Tandy exfoliates, hydrates the skin, and does deep cleansing - all of which are vital to skin health. Facials help with cellular regeneration and collagen-building. Facials should be done regularly.
"It's good if you can do it at least every season, when the seasons change," she said. "I'll be offering hot-stone facials as well."
Three Sisters Healing Arts carries the doTerra line of essential oils, which alternative practitioners use to support immune health. They are all-natural therapeutic-grade oils.
"This is an alternative way of healing," says Peck. "That's what we're all about. They've been around for thousands and thousands of years. The West is just catching up."
