Silvia is a Certified Reiki Master Practitioner, and Certified Reflexologist. She is certified in Champissage Indian Head Massage™ and Kansa Vatki Foot Massage™. She is also a Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) therapist, having completed Basic and Therapy 1 training with the Dr. Vodder School International™. Silvia was born and raised in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, where she discovered and began practicing Reiki. She came to the U.S. in 1997, completed her massage therapy training at The Virginia Learning Institute in 1999, and has been with The Teal Center since 2004.
A wide variety of people benefit from Silvia's work, including pre and post-natal moms, people suffering from stress and recovering from injury, athletes, children, cancer patients, and the elderly. Silvia has studied broadly and incorporates her knowledge of massage and energetic healing modalities as she works with her clients. Non-judgmental listening and compassion are her strengths in her work.
Silvia's core strength is within the Reiki path and Reflexology. She approaches her work by listening to the signs of the body as a whole and acting upon it in a gentle manner, always holding the space and allowing the client the freedom to heal in those areas that need healing. Ongoing studies of Manual Lymphatic Drainage broaden the spectrum of Silvia's healing techniques. Her knowledge of Aromatherapy makes a great complement for those clients who like to enhance their healing experience through this subtle and effective healing technique.

My session with Sylvia was AMAZING. First she talked to me about why I was there and what I wanted out of the session (insomnia, detoxification, generally stress and tense muscles) and then outlined what she would be doing (massage + lymphatic drainage with a focus on my face, arms, shoulders, back). She was attentive and supportive and gave me a full 60-min massage/treatment! After the massage, Silvia sat down and talked with me about how I was feeling and gave me some deep breathing exercises to help with the insomnia and stress."
