Welcome and Thank You for visiting my site!
My name is Sarah Elena Barrios. I grew up in the sunny suburbs of Southern California. I have moved from Los Angeles, to Boston, to Santa Cruz, Grass Valley, now nestled in the gorgeous valley of Bozeman. I am a passionate world traveler, researcher, and holistic health enthusiast. Some places I've visited include: Mexico, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Philippines, Thailand, Boston, New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Colorado, Arizona and Texas.
In my early 20's I always had a fascination with meditation. It was late into 2013 (my mid 20's) when I finally gave meditation a chance. I discovered Qigong through a Tai Chi video. This little video was my first step in an entire new direction of my life. My body and mind were astonished by the amazing effects of qigong and its gentile ability to clear stress, stagnant blockages and ailments. I could feel the uplift in my spirit after each session. Upon every practice, starting from day one, I was feeling strong sensations of magnetic energy emitting from my physical body. I quickly became fascinated by the gentile, yet deep healing qualities of qigong.
I began to research professional practitioners and literature. Qigong has opened me to a beautiful path of the healing arts. Inspired by ancient self-healing practices and qigong, I completed my California Massage Therapy Certification June 2016...(continue scrolling)
...I had been introduced to massage in my childhood years. My siblings and I were constantly involved in sports which sometimes led to minor injuries. My Dad used massage as an aid to our recovery time for our sports injuries. During my Father's childhood they had less access to hospital facilities. Acts of healing came from the home or from Curanderos ("Healers"). My Abuelita (Grandmother) Catita (R.I.P. with love) was known for creating her own home remedies as well as a midwife of her local area in Mexico. It has been a very blessed and natural transition into the beautiful art of massage therapy. Massage is a fantastic outlet for me to dive into my passion and share it with the world.
As a Licenced Therapist, it is my duty to create a safe and welcoming environment for your healing massage. Together, we will discuss both former and present ailments. With my combined knowledge and skills about the body, I will address each of them accordingly. I am here to ensure a most relaxing and rejuvinating time. Massage is a special and honored moment in which we faithfully allow another to help heal our aches and pains through compassionate and loving touch. It is an honor to be a part of any persons' journey into greater wellness. I welcome you to a respected and replenishing time on my table!
At this time, most of my research and practice is an integration of Wombn Health, Doula Care, Midwifery, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Energetics, Sacred Ceremony, Indigenous remedies and holistic practices. Research is a continuous living entity of my life and a key element that is integrated into all my practices. Hungry for knowledge with a passion for healing, I continue my journey to obtain as much practical information about ancient, alternative medicinal practices integrated with physiological science and evidence based facts from around the globe.
Thank you again for visiting! If you have any questions about myself or my journey feel free to contact me here.
It has been an Honor to have you here on my Site!
In health and Love
