“To be fully alive, fully human and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.” - Pema Chödrön

Bahia brings to her clients a knowledge and passion for bodywork that she earned through experiencing it herself personally. She was forever changed on the Big Island of Hawaii when she first experienced the transformational power of bodywork and she has been on a healing journey ever since. She has explored the worlds of yoga, reiki, buddhism, recovery, massage and craniosacral unwinding to name a few and is passionate about all things mind/body.


Her work is grounded in the belief that as we undertake the journey to become embodied, we simultaneously move in the direction of truth, self-expression, balance, love and learn what it is to be useful, truthful and open-hearted. Bahia officially began working as a practitioner in 2015 and is continuing her studies presently at The Institute for Psycho Structural Balancing and its sister school The Life Energy Institute.

Amazing touch, intuitively adapts her depth to match what the tissue needs, delightful calming presence. A beautifully shaped experience! And it's made a difference that's carried forward with me.

Start to finish, my experience was wonderful!

Bahia's technique (both Thai and holistic) is a wonderful experience! Not only does she take great care during a session, she also exhibits compassion in her approach by listening to the client, and then incorporating a customized physical regimen suited to their needs. And man, is it relaxing! Plus, she's a skilled masseuse who's also a great person. Highly recommended!

Ah. Maze. Ing!!! From the room to the temperature of the bed, all the little things were great. Also Bahia is very skilled and communicated thoroughly before starting. She also did some techniques I had never experienced before that were super helpful and soothing! Thank you!
