Arielle Clay, LMT

ArielleArielle graduated From Soma Institute 2021.

I got interested in massage therapy at a young age. I had to be my paraplegic grandfather’s therapist. I had to be the left side of his body while he operated his right side. I played almost every sport, while also involving myself in building and drawing. I decided to study three different majors Criminal Justice, Sports Medicine and Architecture. Although I was very interested in these majors, I shortly realized I had a passion for something different. I decided to attend Soma Institute to pursue a career as a Massage Therapist. My specialties are Sports Massage, Chair Massage, Hydrotherapy, Swedish, Cupping, Trigger Point, Myofascial and Lymph Massage. Since becoming a clinical massage therapist I’ve been able to connect with my patients in a way I would have never imagined. I am so pleased that my work helps heal people.
