Massage:

I specialize in pain relief and chronic pattern realignment.  That’s a fancy way of saying that you will get off my table with a different body than you crawled onto it with.  The stories of your life are held in the tissues of your body.  Each body is like a rubix cube that I get to unravel and solve. As a practitioner since 2007 and an instructor since 2009, I pride myself on staying current with the most recent findings in Sports Medicine, Anatomy, and Holistic Medicine.  Sessions typically include a mixture of the modalities I have studied, which include, Thai Massage, Ayurvedic Abhyanga, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Rolfing®, Esalen Massage®, Chavutti Thirumal, Lymphatic, Craniosacral, Clairvoyant Meditation, Shamanic Medicine Wheel, ThetaHealing®, Reiki, Myofacial Release, Gua Sha, and Chinese Fire Cups.  This will be the best massage of your life.

Common Sense Consultations- Everything around us is made up of some equation of the Five Elements, Air, Ether, Fire, Water, Earth. How we relate to the world around us directly affects the amount of balance or dis-ease we experience. What we eat, who we interact with, where we live… all these things affect us in some way. If we listen, the body will show us its true state of balance or imbalance in the present moment and from that, together we will create easy, common sense, lifestyle adjustment to re-align your body, mind, and spirit. Balance is incredibly easy when you take the time to look and listen to what your body is telling you.

Shirodhara- This is a staple Ayurvedic Treatment for stress. The treatment consists of slowly pouring warm oil over the head for 45-60 minutes, resulting in the client falling into a deep, almost catatonic state of relaxation. In this state, the body is able to heal itself by releasing serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin. This resets the central nervous system and is amazing at relieving anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, jet-lag, headaches, and hypertension.

Eye Neti- The eyes are the window to the Soul and also the window from your Soul to the world.  How well are you seeing the world around you?  This treatment cleans the tear ducts and softens tension in the ligaments around the eyes, while freshening your vision and combating wrinkles.  A warm ghee and castor oil mixture is poured into a dough damn that has been placed around the eye.  The tissue around the eye is then massaged to release dirt, mucous and tension from the eye socket.  This treatment is great for tired, overused and dry eyes.  It helps deepen sleep, relieve headaches and can improve vision for some people.


Apothecary:

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.  Book a free consultation today and let’s see what we can create for you!  Or check out my online store HERE.

Testimonials:

Sahara is the best bodyworker I’ve ever come across. Hands down, no contest. Not only has she been able to completely dismantle old knots, but she’s also cleared the energy channels that lead to them. Every time she works on me, my body and energy are healthier and in a better flow. Her physical work is unmatched and so is her energy work. She is a pure, clear channel for energy. When we’re done the only energy left behind is love and vitality. You can trust her with your body and energy and I strongly encourage you to try her. Also if you want to try a different type of bodywork, you definitely should consider her eye neti. My tired eyes were completely refreshed after one session! She has such a gentle touch and the warm rocks were extremely soothing. It felt amazing during the treatment and afterward, I noticed both my physical and psychic vision was more crisp. Eye Neti for the win! Sahara is my favorite bodyworker, and I know she’ll be yours too. Give her a try!

I received a custom oil blend by Sahara and I LOVE it! I had been going through a stressful time in my life and Sahara took the time to get to know me and explain to me the detailed process she goes into before making my very own blend. She carefully explained each of the parts of a plant, how it relates to me, the meaning, and the expected benefits. All I can say is WOW. I have been using this oil daily for the past month and it’s helped bring down my stress levels tremendously. The calming and refreshing notes of Lavender and Eucalyptus provide instant daily relief. Thank you Sahara for your healing. I appreciate this more than you know!! I would highly recommend!
