I tailor Ayurvedic treatments according to the need of my clients after their initial consultation.
Abhyanga is an Ayurvedic oil massage for detoxifying the body and relaxing it. Warm herbal oils are used to balance the particular constitution of the person. The massage techniques are long flowing and rhythmic strokes to detox energetic channels as well as the lymphatic system. My clients have nicknamed this treatment as Bliss massage because of its deeply relaxing and nurturing qualities. In conjunction with the Ayurvedic massage, garshana which is an exfoliation massage with a silk glove is recommended for people who need to activate their lymphatic system and metabolism. Part of the Ayurvedic tradition is also to use "marma" points or acupressure points, a tuning fork and essential oils for optimal well-being and healing.
"Meeting Sophia was a true gift. I had been trying to get pregnant for over a year when I first met her...I was admittedly imbalanced...working too much- trying to do too much. Sophia's insight, knowledge, and calm clear energy, blended with her Ayurvedic teaching, not only helped me balance my life, but the principles just made sense. I instantly felt more mindful and lighter when putting her teaching into practice....and became pregnant the following month. I continue to see Sophia for massage and Ayurvedic teachings for both myself and my baby boy. She is a true gem." July 2016 Brooke, Maine
