Louisiana Licensed #759 Since 11-1-1996
Certified Natural Health Professional November 2016

Becky has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1996 she was in an auto accident that left her with pain in her neck and back. She turned to massage therapy where she received so much relief she soon became interested in it as a career. Since graduating and passing both the national and state board exams, Becky has continued her studies for helping her clients receive the relief they were looking for in medical massage training with both LMT Massage Success of Florida and Advanced Massage Training in New Orleans. Becky is so passionate about massage therapy that she has gone above, and beyond the 12 hours of continuing, education massage therapist must fulfill for licensure every year.

Becky always individualizes every massage for each client; she will use different techniques such as Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point, and much more for whatever that client may need. She believes that each client is different and what works and gives relief for one, may slightly differ in another, she pays close attention to how the body is responding and will use the proper technique that will work to achieve the clients best outcome.

Becky became certified in Aromatherapy from The College of Holistic Studies in Houston Texas in 1998 and is currently studying more about aromatherapy and essential oils through JennScents of Florida. She also has a strong passion for natural health and became a Certified Natural Health Professional through Trinity School of Natural Health of Warsaw, IN and is currently continuing her studies in natural health.

Becky agrees with other professionals that maintenance work once a month will help to keep aches and pains at bay, some may require more frequent visits especially during times of increased aches and pains. Becky goes above, and beyond to help her clients by suggesting at home help such has tub soaks with Epsom salts, ice packs, natural therapies for pain and inflammation and stress; which is a significant cause for many of the aches and pains we suffer daily.

In her spare time, she enjoys cycling, hiking and landscape photography. She grew up working in her mother’s arts and crafts business, she has been a custom picture framer, loves being creative in upcycling furniture, creative crafting and trying new artistic projects.

Shannon Sonnier

My name is Shannon Sonnier. I am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. I am also a continuing education provider for Yoga Alliance. I am certified as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist. The wisdom of ayurveda has been a tremendous gift in my life. Yoga and ayurveda are my passions and a way of life.

After years of teaching and practicing yoga I have developed my own teaching style that meets students where they are at in their journey. I have over eleven years of experience teaching a variety of classes and to various levels of students. I have had to learn how to make the physical practice adaptable to anyone that is in front of me. I believe it is important to incorporate the philosophy of yoga into the classes that I teach so students understand how that applies to their lives off of the mat. After all yoga is an integrative system that addresses the needs of the individual as a whole being body, mind and spirit. As life is ever changing we must grow and change with it. Our yoga practice should support and nurture us as we grow and change.
