Hello, my name is Sherry Kay Bernard.
I absolutely LOVE all the things that I do. I became certified as a Thai Massage Bodyworker in 1996. Thai Massage is a Healing Art and has been practiced in Thailand for over 2,500 years. The purpose of Thai massage as a therapy is to promote the free & unrestricted circulation of Life Energy or Prana throughout the whole body. When your body, mind & spirit are balanced, you feel FABULOUS. I really enjoy scheduling clients for 2 hour sessions because over the years I have seen what a difference it has made in my clients’ lives.
Life seems to go so fast & our society teaches us to GO! GO! GO! all the time, just like a constant merry-go-round. When we live like this, it only creates more stress & we feel rushed & weary throughout the day. So taking time out just for yourself is beneficial for anyone who has a desire to live a LONGER & HAPPIER LIFE.
I have had so many clients ask me: “What are you going to do to me for 2 hours?” I begin with an extensive health history so I know where you are at the very beginning. It is also great for you to become aware of how you are REALLY feeling. Breathwork is so important to feel more balanced & open throughout the day so I teach clients the correct ways to breathe. We have over 75 trillion cells in our body that are able to move around more freely when we learn to consciously breathe. In return we have more energy to enjoy each day more. Good health depends on a balanced flow of energies in the body. Through opening up zen lines along with a wide variety of assisted stretching movements, it opens the joints and helps to balance all the major muscle groups of the body. Thai bodywork uses patterns of gentle rocking & rhythmic compressions to help ease the recipient into a deeply relaxed state while helping them become more flexible than they thought possible.
Then we move to the massage table. I love using hot stones that are christened with powerful doTERRA oils like Balance, Elevation & Lavendar. The word doTERRA means “Gift of the Earth”. Just 1 drop doTERRA peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea. doTERRA’s therapeutic-grade essential oils are 100% pure natural aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants all around the world. These oils are synergetic & have been healing for thousands of years. I love doing aromatic foot scrubs to help stimulate all 27,000 nerve endings in the feet. I love incorporating the Thai movements to open up more space in the shoulders, arms, wrists, hands & all the fingers. It just seems to magically create more space so the client feels better using smartphones & computers. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard things like “My hands feel so much better, my hips feel more open, I had NO idea that I was that STRESSED OUT, I have NOT been this relaxed in years.” These are the things I love to hear because the BETTER WE FEEL, THE HAPPIER WE ARE SO WE BRING MORE LOVE & COMPASSION TO THIS WORLD. In Thai massage we approach each session by silently saying the word METTA which means loving kindness. By giving the massage with this loving kindness, it helps to generate MORE loving-kindness around us.
I feel very blessed to have a beautiful space at Pizazz Salon in San Diego. I offer single massages & mini-packages of 3, 5 & 7 treatments that can be individualized to meet your needs: Private Yoga, Semi-Private Yoga, Thai/Therapeutic Massage, and Therapeutic Massage for 90 to 120 minutes. Let me help you to FEEL BETTER NOW!!! YOU ARE WORTH THE STRETCH!!!
In love & light,
