The adventure is about to begin...

Welcome! I have created this blog as a way for folks in the Raleigh area to hopefully find me while transitioning my therapeutic bodywork practice from commercial space to home studio. I thought it would be a fun way to share the renovation process as we slowly transform what was once a small garage into a green sanctuary.

In my tenth year of practicing therapeutic bodywork in downtown Raleigh, I have been blessed with wonderful work space and even more wonderful clients. A hand full of them have been with me since the beginning at Raleigh Therapeutic Bodywork at 1033 Oberlin Road. Then I moved to my beautiful space at Pilot Mill at 1101 Haynes Street. I was there five years and adored my room in that old mill.

In summer 2007 I had to find new work space as surrounding offices at Pilot Mill were in need of expansion. Fortunately I was quickly welcomed into Gateway Yoga at 1818 Oberlin Road. I loved being at the yoga studio but soon found the space much larger than what I needed. It just happened that a bodyworker friend offered up her room in the Ligon Building at 800 St. Mary's Street as she was about to go on temporary leave and I was wanting something smaller. So in September 2008 I moved into the Ligon Building and plan to stay here until my home studio is completed in the spring of 2010.

I am very excited about this move and the thought and love we are putting into it. I want this space to have the same tranquil openess as Pilot Mill but with a modern feel and a welcoming garden courtyard. It is truly going to be a little sanctuary for clients to feel renewed, rejuvenated & refreshed. I will of course still be practicing my fluid style of swedish, trigger point and deep tissue while slowly implementing in new studies in aromatherapy and ayurveda.

There will be more to come in the weeks and months ahead. So if you are looking for Caroline Mamoulides, NCLMBT #1415 you have found her. My new number is 919-601-0631. You can also email me at cmamou@att.net.

I considered different names for my little bodywork studio to be. I considered Five Points Therapeutic Bodywork and The Body Garage and Sanctuary. But Little Sur Studio fit just right. A name honoring Big Sur, CA which is just about my favorite place on earth as you can see here...

Cheers, happiness & good health!
