Carla Gaskins-Nathan (she/they) is a licensed massage therapist and owner of Rooted Bodywork based in New York. As a queer person of color, Carla’s work places an emphasis on self-care for people of all backgrounds, body types, and gender identities.

As this is Carla’s second time on the show, we touch on some topics we weren’t able to address back in 2017 and expand upon some of their views on Eastern medicine, spirituality, and religious self-care practices. This time, Carla unpacks their ideas on self-soothing, cultural alienation, and the difficulty of setting boundaries with others as a gender non-conforming person.
