As great bodyworker, John F. Barnes said, “You have to feel to heal”.
Modern urban culture encourages workers, especially men, to constantly be striving for targets ignoring their bodies. But we are not machines & there is a great wisdom in balance. By creating a space for retreat & rejuvenation, we can let go & open up to the wisdom of our bodies, intuition & authentic desire. Sofia believes that most men could benefit from receiving Tantric bodywork: to learn to slow down, come into their sensate focus & connect with the feminine from this place of embodied presence.
Rest assured you will be in experienced hands, Sofia has a wealth of experience in the Healing Arts. She is a Certified Massage Therapist in 5 bodywork styles: Lomi Lomi, Swedish, Indian Head, Reflexology & Myofascial Release. Also a Certified Hypnotherapist (GHSC), Holistic Healing practitioner (CMA) and Yoga Instructor (Yogaworks). Plus, she designed & hosts SkyDanceCam, an informative vlog of Holistic Healing inspiration including Intimacy tips, Flexi-is-Sexy Yoga sequences & Tantric breathwork techniques.
With a warm-hearted & down-to-earth approach, she is the perfect Tantric guide for nervous newcomers. Working internationally, has given her the experience to meet each client were they are at, & inspire & support them.
Sofia is a lifelong student, taking ~ 3 new courses in the Healing Arts each year to advance her skillset, yet staying humble & open-minded to learning. See her full resume below.
