Hi, my name is Diana Mains, and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and I also practice Reflexology, Polarity, Astrology and Tarot. For the past 4 years I have been a small business owner in rural Western Maine. I own The Sacred Self in Cornish, ME which is a holistic healing center that brings together a wide variety of holistic practitioners who offer therapies, classes, private classes and workshops. We also have a satellite location in Norway, The Sacred Self at Teresia Reiki.
I first started receiving massage and energy work as a result of a white water rafting accident in 2013. I would soon discover that the Universe was continuing to provide opportunities for me to begin to truly heal through alternative therapies and alternative approaches, not only from the accident but also from trauma in my life. In my opinion, that accident was a catalyst to an “Awakening” which lasted a few years. After a particularly profound massage + polarity appointment, I entered massage therapy school at Spa Tech Institute in Westbrook on 7/7/2014 at the age of 48, and eventually went back to teach for a couple of years and discovered that I love to teach! Right from the beginning, I have been passionate about educating and sharing the healing power of massage therapy, energy work and conscious touch from one end of the state to the other, literally, whether in the classroom or in session with my clients. I am passionate because it is MY story. Massage therapy changed my entire life. Very real physical and emotional changes can take place when you have regular, skilled body and energy work.
I have opened successful solo practices in Portland, Mars Hill and Houlton, South Portland and Cornish and opened The Sacred Self in Cornish July 1, 2019 and our Norway practice in October of 2022.
Both of the towns where The Sacred Self is located have strong healing communities and offer a wide variety of alternative/holistic therapies. Norway and Cornish also offer several beautiful metaphysical retail shops that provide crystals and many other tools for your healing journey as well as delicious restaurant options and local artisans - definitely worth a day trip if we are not located in your neck of the woods!
