“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.

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!

Bahia takes care to be in-tune with you every step of the way. She is nothing short of professional yet balances that with a positive, personalized environment. I was blown away by the experience, especially because I wasn't sure what to expect, and without a doubt recommend her to anyone.

Bahia is a wonderful masseuse. I got my second prenatal massage and felt instant relief from tight muscles. She takes her time and is strong where she needs to be.

Bahia, is amazing! She is very knowledgeable and was able to sort out my back when I had badly pulled it. She is the only person I trust to do a safe a proper pregnancy message.

I had a Thai 90 min massage and it was such an amazing experience. I have been suffering chronic hip pain and Bahia, through the process of moving and stretching my body she was able to pinpoint the pain and work on it so that I felt such a huge improvement after and for the following days. She is a wonderful knowledgable presence using her strength together with her intelligence and experience. I have now decided that this must be part of my life once a month!

Bahia is an exceptionally skilled massage therapist. Having been fortunate enough to have been exposed to a variety of great massage therapists, I was still very impressed with her approach - both in her willingness to combine different techniques within one appointment AND with her understanding that the notion of "no pain - no gain" is not necessarily the best solution... I enthusiastically recommend Bahia!
