My Mission: Why I created Hill Country Healing Arts & Massage               


Patrice Roisman-Carter,  MA, LMT, MTI, CWWP

Growing up in NYC, I studied ballet at Julliard and modern dance with Merce Cunnigham for 15 years and studied piano and cello too. I got he acting bug but fortunately for only a brief episode! I practiced yoga for almost 30 years. In 1978 became one of the first Shiatsu therapists in the US. In 1978 I left NYC and moved to Woodstock NY to further my art studies. I became a mountain climber in 1990 eventually moving to Colorado in 1993 which is when my interest in massage turned from needing them, to wanting to become one myself. With an MA in Art Education, my personal work is primarily as a sculptor and illustrator, the elements of which are always present in my massage. Licensed in 2002 and after 10 years of practice mostly in the spa industry, I knew had to create my own space in order to give my clients the attention and time they deserve. I opened my private studio in 2011 on my property remodeling part of my home. I received my instructors license in 2012. My studio is a place to showcase my art and that of my friends and mother and is decorated by the beautiful collections and antiques. My clients love the space, especially the gorgeous marble shower and bathroom. 

I illustrated a number of books children's books on dinosaurs and dragons as well as writing and illustrating my own children’s book. At Gold’s gym in Ohio, and when the new Central Market was being built in Austin you could find me on scaffolding doing enormous murals. I recently completed a small one at the YMCA in Dripping Springs. I enjoys the outdoors and walking my two favorite companions, Morgan, a rescued Great Pyrenees /Border Collie and Fennel my silly wiggly pittie mix both 70lbs. I love cooking so you might be lucky enough to enjoy some of my food and perhaps a glass of wine at the end of your massage. I had a wonderful roommate who was a chef and we started  Mangiare and Massage here but he moved to Santa Fe.
