About

Welcome to Sankofa Massage & Bodywork in Newburyport!

Sankofa Massage & Bodywork provides professional and ethical bodywork for every generation. With the entire person in mind, each session is tailored to meet the client’s therapeutic needs and to achieve their personal goals. With the many health benefits of massage and other forms of bodywork, you are on your way to improving yourself to healthy living.

The word Sankofa originates from Ghana and the Ivory Coast, West Africa. The literal translation of Sankofa is “it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot.”

Sankofa teaches us that “we must go back to our past in order to move forward”. That we should take all the negative and positive experiences from the past, build upon and learn from them, so we may improve ourselves to become better people.

Nurturing your body through massage and other forms of bodywork is not only relaxing but can be emotionally healing; allowing one to free one’s mind from anxiety, tension and past trauma. Acknowledging and breaking through these barriers can be emotionally and spiritually uplifting enabling us to live more productive and healthy lives.

Located in coastal Newburyport, we are dedicated to serving Newbury, West Newbury, Salisbury and the surrounding North Shore communities.
