I provide unique healing services with an east meets west style. I offer Thai yoga bodywork, Ayurvedic bodywork, yoga therapy, and meditation instruction.
I am sincere in my offerings, and each session is done as an offering of loving-kindness to the divine essence of your being. I have many years of study in various healing arts, spiritual philosophies, movement, wellness, anatomy, and psychology. I am very happy to share these gifts with you and help you along your path towards healing and greater health, joy, abundance, pleasure, and peace in your life.
*I have just joined Thervo, but I have plenty of reviews from past clients collected on my website.
I enjoy offering the gift of touch and genuine presence to others. I enjoy the nonverbal conversations I have with my clients in bodywork sessions. When using oils, I enjoy the way it feels like I am painting on the canvas of my client's body. I enjoy the healing that can happen beyond the logical mind in these sessions, touching on something deeper that can't always be put into words.
Nava was prompt and courteous the entire time. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
This was my second session with Nava and it was absolutely amazing. Not only does the way she does bodywork encourage meditation, but I come out of it feeling completely decompressed. The deep stretching that is part of the routine is more relaxing than any deep tissue massage I've ever gotten, and provides the deep muscle relief that I am constantly seeking. The bodywork encourages posture, alignment, and becoming fully self-aware. I don't think I can ever go back to a traditional massage therapist after experiencing what Nava has to offer. Actually, there is no question. I can't. A session with Nava is not just bodywork...it's a state of being.
Nava's Thai yoga sessions are powerful - she has an intuitive knowledge of the body backed up with some serious technique. She always knows how to get just the right spots to help release stress and tension. I daresay that this physical massage has energetic vibes as well - I felt it not only in my muscles, but an opening in my chakras and a feeling of energetic release for several days after a session. I would recommend Sacred Scarab to anyone who is looking for a truly holistic healing experience.
They are very skilled and professional.
