   Licensed massage therapist Sally Craig has moved her business to Madras Natural Health, at 227 S.E. Sixth St., Madras.
   She is available to do massages on Monday and Thursday afternoons, from 3 to 7 p.m., by appointment. Call Craig at 350-7010. In the new office, Craig is offering REIKI massage, relaxation massage and deep tissue massage.
   "I am looking forward to working with Dr. Davis. I hope to see all my clients at Madras Natural Health and am anticipating and looking forward to having more time," Craig said. She plans to put together a couples massage class, and offer grief classes again at the new location.
   Craig, her husband Earl, and sons Wes and Errin, moved to Madras from Woodburn in 1973, then to Culver in 1979. Their boys attended school in Culver, graduating in 1986 and 1989. Earl began working for Deschutes Valley Water in 1989.
   Meanwhile, Sally did accounting work for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs from 1980 to 1994. Part of that time, she attended the Oregon School of Massage and received her license in massage therapy in 1987.
   She worked part-time at massage therapy and full-time for the Tribes until deciding to do massage full-time in 1994.
   Her first year, she became involved with hospice and began doing grief classes on a regular basis. After meeting Madras chiropractor Dr. Mullins, she did massage therapy at his office, while also doing relief office work for him. Eventually, Craig became the receptionist, bookkeeper, insurance billing clerk, and accounts receivable clerk for the office. After 10 years with Dr. Mullins, she decided to move to Madras Natural Health and focus just on massage therapy.
