Sydney began her journey as a Massage Therapist in January 2012 as a Spa Coordinator at Mirabella Mansori. In the summer, she began her training at Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, and became a licensed therapist in January 2013.
Sydney's desire to help others is what drives her. She focuses on her client's needs and strives to educate and bring body awareness. Her goal for every treatment is to encourage deep relaxation and healing, both for the body and the mind.
Since last year, Sydney has had many great experiences at Mirabella, while gaining a variety of knowledge from skin care to Ayurveda. With the days ahead, she hopes to continue expanding her knowledge and move in a positive direction.
I began my journey as a massage and bodywork practitioner in 2003. I had thoughts of being a therapist before this, but my introduction to yoga in 2001, is what gave me the push I needed. Yoga reconnected me to my body and made me recognize the importance this connection could have in my life. I decided that I would pursue education as a Yoga instructor once I had established my massage practice. In 2008, I finally recognized that part of my dream and received my 200 hr yoga teacher certification with one of the first certified Iyengar teachers in the United States.
My training began in California, but has since taken me many places. My experience as a therapist has been expansive, offering me opportunities to work with adults and children with special needs, athletes, orthopedic/injury rehabilitation, currently education as I am inspired by other techniques. I am currently furthering my Traditional Thai studies and training with Tim Miller in the Ashtanga Yoga tradition.
My massage sessions reflect my integrative nature and usually draw from the therefore each session I give is customized. Massage and Bodywork are a gift to the deepest part of our being. Through a dance between the therapist and the client awareness is initiated and interaction is invited between the various components I consider myself a facilitator for my clients as we endeavor to connect the physical, mental, and emotional, and restore balance to the whole being. It is from to embody can move forward with grace to our most wholistically complete self. I feel honored to have found this path and to be able to touch people's lives in such an intimate way.
