Massage:

Benefits of Massage

  • Decreases stress hormones in the body by increasing stress-relieving hormones and downshifting the central nervous system 
  • Breaks up scar tissue 
  • Increases muscle and joint mobility 
  • Stimulates lymphatic and immune systems 
  • Pumps fresh blood into the tissues 
  • Decreased pain 
  • Improved posture and longevity 
  • Supports bodily functions that remove toxins 
  • Relieves tension headaches 
  • Lowers Blood Pressure 
  • Heals repetitive strain injuries 

Benefits of a 3-hour massage with Sahara (yes, you read that right. 3 Hours)

  • Reach the root of the problem.  For example, if you come in with shoulder pain, but it is caused by your sacrum being stuck, which is caused by scar tissue from an old ankle injury, it is really hard to identify and address all those issues in a single hour.  Sure, you can come in for an hour every week, but during that time, you continue to exacerbate the root cause and the chain of pain.  If you come in for an extended session, I can identify and address all those issues, and you walk out with the root, the chain, and the symptom being addressed and released.   
  • Your nervous system gets to fully relax instead of beginning to relax and then get tossed out into life again. 
  • You create the space for real relaxation instead of carving out a small window and then rushing to and from it. 
  • The results last longer because your total body, as well as all of its systems, are addressed. 
  • Over time, you need less and less treatments because you heal as opposed to just sustain. 

I gotta be honest with you, I am just not interested in putting band-Aids on bodies anymore.  What lights me up is unlocking the Rubix Cube that is the human body and effecting real, lasting, change.  I can’t get there in 60 minutes.  I can’t get there in 90 minutes.  Let me change how you relate to massage and to your own body.  I guarantee this will be the best massage of your life.

You are unique; your body care should be too!  Every plant and oil has specific medicinal uses, but did you know that every one reacts differently to each person’s unique constitution?  Or that each reacts differently depending on where and how it was grown?  Using Ayurveda and your body’s unique blueprint, I create a formula that is perfect for you.  Your needs, environment, and intention are all taken into account.  No two people are the same and no two formulas are the same.  Whether it is an essential oil blend, bath blend, face serum, hydrosol, or body scrub, I will create the perfect self-care product for you.  Visit my ETSY shop to purchase a ready-made product or book an appointment below to get started on your personalized body and skincare program.

Energy Clearing:

  • Take control of your emotions 
  • Learn how to respond instead of react 
  • Breed compassion and understanding within all of your relationships 
  • Remember that you are the master of your own emotions, not the other way around!     

These sessions are a form of energy work based in Theta Healing®. They work to identify and clear the unconscious beliefs that are blocking you from reaching your highest and best potential. Maybe you are feeling stuck in a cycle that seems to be on repeat, having a hard time manifesting the things you want in your life, or finding it difficult to get clarity on what you want to manifest, these sessions will weed out what blocks you. You will gain clarity in all aspects of your life and find the peace you need to move forward without stress, anxiety, or other emotional triggers.  I love this modality of energy work because it has the added potency of Free Will. You have to consciously and verbally agree to receive it, and as an active participant, you strengthen the work being done!

Feng Shui:

  • Align your space to your specific intentions, dreams, and needs 
  • Clear away prior owner or ancestor’s energy from your home and belongings 
  • Make way for abundance in all areas of your life 
  • Create a restful space for you to recharge and feel safe 

Your home is your Sacred Space, it is the place you go to relax, rejuvenate and recalibrate. It is also a place that people before you have called home, it is not a new Temple. The land it is built on has held generations of Humans and Creatures alike. Wars have been fought, Love made, and Beings Born. Ancestors and energies can linger for lifetimes and it is important to bring yourself into alignment with those who have come before.  Simple changes in the location of items can charge up the energy in every aspect of your life!

Workshops and Retreats:

Benefits of having a Guest Teacher for your Retreat or Studio…

  • Fresh Perspective and Ideas: New blood is always an exciting way jazz up your students and their practice.
  • New Students:  Having guest teachers is an amazing way to promote your studio or retreat and bring in new clientele.
  • Increased Revenue:  Longtime students and clients are more likely to spend their hard-earned cash on something new than for something they can get any time.  
  • It’s Exciting!:  Learning new things is incredibly exciting and raises the vibration of everyone involved.
  • I am really good at what I do, I love doing it, and I make learning something new incredibly easy and accessible for all.

All of my modalities are available in retreat and/or workshop form.  I LOVE to share and teach what I do, so please contact me if you would like to bring me in to teach a workshop or lead/participate in a retreat.  Check out my toolbox on the Meet Sahara page for more information on what I offer.

The Conscious Alcoholic – Alcohol has been used in every medicinal system since the beginning of time. Study the worlds’ medicinal history and you will find tinctures, medicated wines, and various other topical potions. Alcohol is amazing at extracting the medicinal benefits of plants and herbs, delivering them to the body to relieve pain and promote healing. So why aren’t we applying all that knowledge to our cocktails? I mean, if it’s good for my kidneys to put my foot behind my head, there has to be an herb I can put in my martini to promote… something. Right?  Well, yes, actually there is. Using Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, I have not only created delicious cocktail recipes; I have broken the properties of each spirit and herb down so that you can discover how to drink to balance your body. That’s right folks, healthy drinking! By the time you are done reading, you will understand why some alcohols work for you, while others leave you praying to the Porcelain Goddess. PURCHASE NOW!


Luxury Wellness:

Benefits of having a Private Wellness Coach on your Holiday or Retreat…

  • Be More Present:  When someone else is taking care of you, you have more energy to take care of others.  And when you get taken care of, you have more energy to be present with yourself, your experiences, and your loved ones.
  • More Effective:  Having someone there to push you to actually do your workout/ yoga/ self-care so that don’t waste your sacred time avoiding actually doing it.  You also save time and energy by not needing to create anything yourself.  I am there to motivate, create, and excavate the new you!
  • More Open-Minded: When you are relaxed and away on holiday you tend to be more open-minded to change.  You are not stuck in stressful patterns and you have the ability to shift in ways you might not during ‘regular’ day to day life.  This is a great opportunity to create new, healthy patterns!
  • If Not Now, When?:  Let’s get real, “I will take care of me after…” never actually happens because there is always another thing that takes the place of importance.  Invest in yourself because no one else is going to if you don’t.

Any and all of my services are available for your next vacation or retreat.  I practice all over the world at retreat centers, hotels, and private villas and yachts.  If you think I might be a positive addition to your upcoming retreat, workshop, or holiday, please reach out and let’s chat!
