Sophie King Santoro obtained her license in massage therapy from The Swedish Institute in New York City in 2001, with well over 1200 hours of training. She started a successful private practice in Berkeley, CA as well as providing medical massage for a prominent chiropractor. She has developed strong skills in both Eastern and Western styles of massage. Drawing upon the strengths of each, Sophie emphasizes the integration of the two styles. She has in-depth training in anatomy, physiology, myology, kinesiology, neurology, pathology and Chinese Five Element theory. She has worked in a holistic therapy center, a yoga studio, with the elderly, at sporting events, in wellness centers, and with chair massage companies. Sophie has always been interested in health, and received a B.A. in anthropology from Oberlin College, concentrating on the interaction of religious beliefs and health practices. Sophie brings her presence, with her knowledge, experience, and sensitivity to each session.
