Healing with Socorro
HOLISTIC, PERSONALIZED BODYWORK AND HEALING
I’m a skilled massage therapist with nearly two decades of experience working in Southern California. With a wholly unique approach, I combine spiritual healing, energy work, massage, breath, and sound to assist individuals to unblock stuck energies in the body that prevent growth and expansion in life. My ultimate goal is to be a conduit of healing energy to gently guide my clients toward a more integrated mind and body. I support clients through their healing process to release patterns that may manifest physically within the body, assisting in restoring the energy field and the chakra system.
My certifications include: Holistic Health Practitioner, Cranio-sacral Therapy from the Healing Hands of Holistic Health Institute; Oncology Massage from Greet the Day; Manual Lymph Drainage (Vodder technique) from the Klose Training Institute; Prenatal and Postpartum Massage from the Body Therapy Association; Birth Doula Training from the DONA International Institute; and Death Midwifery certification from Sacred Crossings. I received personal training in emotional release/energy work from Charles McCall and Racquel Palmese.

Tailored to individuals with cancer, this specialized practice requires close attention to the physical and emotional needs in all stages from diagnosis through treatment, both during and after periods of radiation, chemotherapy, as well as pre- and post-surgery. Uses a variety of techniques designed to elicit the relaxation response and accommodate current and past treatment, side effects and other relevant medical history.
A series of techniques that are directed at moving the fluid layer of the body through gentle and rhythmic bodywork. Deeply relaxing, this gentle but powerful modality exercises the small atrophied muscles of the lymph system. It stimulates detoxification as it re-establishes the free flow of lymph throughout the body, which allows the body to restore and maintain health and balance in its systems.
A gentle, non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still on various pressure points at the base of the skull and neck. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system, by stimulating the parasympathetic response.
Massage can help manage the physical and mental challenges of aging for healthy longevity. Ailments that affect older populations often result in chronic pain, poor circulation and limited mobility. This type of massage can help an aging body maintain, or sometimes even regain, functions that have been lost. Massage can help even the oldest clients improve overall health and well-being.
PRENATAL and POSTPARTUM MASSAGE
In pregnancy, posture can shift dramatically, causing back pain, swelling, leg cramps and muscle fatigue, increasing as the body prepares itself for delivery. Prenatal massage. With the mother positioned safely on her side, it can help ease some of these discomforts. Postpartum massage can speed healing and recovery, especially after a C-section, relieve stress and aid in muscle flexibility. Massage helps release oxytocin, which boosts milk production, improves circulation and induces good sleep.
TMJ SYNDROME RELEASE
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is marked by pain and stiffness in the jaw, face and neck around the joint that connects the jaw to the side of the skull. By using gentle but targeted massage on the muscles surrounding the joint and unwinding the neck muscles, TMJ patients may be able to experience less pain and ease symptoms of jaw clenching and grinding and their resulting muscle imbalances.
TRAUMA HEALING and EMOTIONAL RELEASE
Trauma and emotional distress shows up in the body in a number of ways, with most people going through the motions of their lives without exploring the deepest origins of their pain. These healing sessions aren’t traditional massage, but do call on a unique blend of breathwork, sound immersion and bodywork techniques to facilitate release and healing. Based on my personal study under the mentorship of my teachers Charles McCall and Racquel Palmese, my aim is to work with each client to address painful blockages and free up trapped energy, ultimately leading to a more integrated physical and emotional body.
