If you are looking for healing, you must look inside of yourself. If you would like help with consciously and compassionately doing so, Lara might be the bodyworker for you.
Massage Therapy sessions with Lara can include any combination of Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue work, Sacred Hot Stone Therapy, Intuitive Healing sessions, Injury-Specific work, or Yoga/stretching instruction. Her work is compassionate, communicative, flowing, nurturing, informed by a mild obsession with anatomy, and oftentimes breath- & awareness-centered. Women in their childbearing year can safely seek out Lara’s massage services as well; she is certified in working with women during their pregnancies, deliveries, and postpartum recovery period.
A life-long student of various meditative and healing arts, Lara is passionate about celebrating and learning from the experience of embodiment. She was born and raised by practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism and Yantra Yoga, and she has likewise been “a seeker” of spiritual truth and wisdom for as long as she can remember. She began teaching yoga in 2009, and the next year received her BA with departmental honors in Critical Theory and Social Justice from Occidental College. Shortly thereafter, she attended the Scherer Institute of Natural Healing (now the Santa Fe School of Massage) and became a massage therapist.
Lara is currently directing the Santa Fe Community Yoga Center, where she also teaches creative, intentional Vinyasa classes and offers her bodywork services. She hopes that you will come and enjoy her work, and most of all that you will enjoy and celebrate your precious time in your perfect body.

Zach’s introduction to Healing Arts began at a very early age. His mother was a Reiki Master/Teacher, who suddenly passed away when he was 8 years old. Some of his earliest memories include feeling the warmth radiating from her hands, and a deep sense of peace that accompanied that. This is what prompted him to explore Healing Arts. In 2012, he enrolled at the Santa Fe School of Massage in a 800-hour dual certification program which included 700 hours in Massage Therapy practices, and 100 hours in Intuitive Presence healing processes. Shortly after he graduated in 2013, he began to study Reiki. He became a fully certified Reiki Master/Teacher in 2017. He also studied under Santa Fe healer, Yushuang Li, who taught him how to deeply integrate the Chinese Meridians into his work. He has also studied Ka Shen Sehkem, a form of egyptian energy healing similar to Reiki.
In 2015, he was offered a position as Reiki Master at the National Veterans Wellness and Healing Center, in Angel Fire, NM. He was able to participate in five separate 7 day long retreats that helped Veterans with high levels of PTSD, using alternative healing practices. It was during this time that he deeply integrated into his work as a Reiki Master.
Zach is currently practicing and teaching Reiki in Santa Fe, NM. He is also a massage therapist and Reiki Master at Sunrise Springs Spa Resort. He offers healing services at the Intuitive Presence clinic every month, located at the Santa Fe Community Yoga Center. He also runs an online coaching program that helps holistic professionals embody their intuition to quiet the analytical mind & get more done while being more present and happy in their lives.
