Owner's Note

Hi! I'm so happy you're here learning more about our beautiful studio and the team behind the magic.

In January of 2023, after a successful 17 years in business, Sabai Body Temple underwent a change in leadership, and we are excited to continue to support you with our knowledge, technique, and energy.


I have had the pleasure and privilege of growing up around massage, bodywork, and holistic healthcare since I was a child. After pursuing an education in Massage Therapy in 2017, I worked at athletic centers, small studios, and a tiny home-based business... joining the team at Sabai in 2019 felt like coming home. I am proud of my colleagues and the love we put into our space and our work. 


As I settle into this new leadership role at the studio, I have some key goals in mind for SBT's stability and growth

  • Support and maintain a solid team

  • Connect with our local community

  • Balance accessible bodywork with the high quality, slow-flow service style that we are known for as a studio

  • Create more opportunities for client education


We will continue to care for this little oasis in the city, and ensure that you have a safe and comfortable space to visit, and refer your loved ones.

Founders' Note

Sabai Body Temple was created by two people from opposite sides of the globe who met in China and found themselves living in Minneapolis, MN. Drawing from backgrounds in bodywork and hospitality, we set out to create a beautiful sanctuary where our clients could escape the stress and worry experienced living in the modern world.

SBT was founded in 2007 with the intention of fusing exceptional eastern-inspired bodywork together with a service standard associated with high-end spas or hotels, without the exclusivity or a clinical spa feeling.

Over the years, Sabai attracted a team of the most talented bodyworkers and staff on the planet to provide impressive care and education for our clientele.  With a no-pain / all-gain philosophy, we developed our SBT Studio Massage to blend deep tissue bodywork with profound relaxation.

We worked to create a beautiful setting to indulge the senses.  A restful space where both clientele and staff are treated as close friends.  A retreat, where time is considered precious, rather than a
commodity. A place where small, thoughtful touches take you to something beyond your everyday experience.
