Shoshanna’s Bio

Shoshanna is a Certified Massage Therapist, Ayurvedic Practitioner & Bodywork Educator. Her initial training began in 1989 with a comprehensive 1000-hour holistic program at The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics Albuquerque, New Mexico.  A large part of her work experience took place in a dynamic spa environment at the Ten Thousand Waves Mountain Spa in Santa Fe, NM where she became a Spa and Watsu therapist for many years. Over the years her advanced continuing education trainings have included Neuromuscular and Connective Tissue work, as well as, the study of Homeopathy, Ayurveda, and Ayurvedic Bodywork.

She developed the Spa and Hydrotherapy training for PMTI, which she continues to teach bi-annually. During this time she was introduced to Hot Stone Massage Therapy. Her love of doing bodywork was rekindled with the discovery of working with the stones, which is now one of her specialties.

For the past decade she has pursued Ayurvedic training with many excellent teachers. Studying and learning Ayurveda is a lifelong path which Shoshanna continues to embrace as her passion. Presently she teaches Introduction to Ayurvedic Bodywork and Hot Stone Therapy continuing education workshops at several massage schools on the east coast each year and her private practice has an emphasis on doing bodywork that is deeply influenced by the ancient holistic principles of Ayurveda.

Shoshanna’s love of exotic lands, cultures, and esoteric teachings has taken her on many travel adventures around the world. She now makes her home in Chapel Hill, NC with her awesome teenage son. All of this diverse and extensive “hands-on” and teaching experience along with her passion for Ayurveda, Stone, and Hydrotherapy work is brought to these classes which are practical and enjoyable.
