Khara's interest in therapeutic healing through massage and bodywork is an obvious choice for her lifestyle. Throughout her extensive education and experience, she's created her own style of massage and teaching that is truly unique. She applies the same beliefs and structure of health and wellness within her own life, which translates the positive energy she emits for each session with every client. Khara has been practicing massage since 2009 and more recently in 2011 teaching workshops for infant massage & pre & post-natal yoga, continuing to heal the world one soul at a time.
Her passions include traveling, exploring other cultures, and experiencing the great traditions, history, food, and dance of other worlds near and far. These adventures have undoubtedly taught her some of life's greatest lessons and touched her deeply, with more appreciation, respect, and deep gratitude for the simple things in life and learning how to better enjoy 'the moment'. She thrives in environments where mind, body, and spirituality are connected and realized with the focus for constant enhancement, letting go of the ego. For Khara, art and music play a key role to living a happy existence, living by ocean breezes, drinking fruit smoothies or a glass of fine wine, and enjoying good times with friends and family. Karma is real, spread the love through nurturing touch.
