MEET BZ

Your Soul Vacation Guide

Hey Western Mass! 

 

I'm BZ and I'm a recent transplant from Cambridge. Not too long ago my husband and I decided to pick up and head west to join this amazing community. My goal was to bring Body Zen::Ayurvedic Wellness to the Pioneer Valley and create a soulful sanctuary.

 

Over the past 8 years, I've supported thousands of people looking to feel better in their bodies on this inside and out. I take bodywork and skincare very seriously which is why I've invested a ton of time and energy into honing my craft - it's all so I can be the best possible resource for you! 

 

I've listed a few of the big credentials down below but the learning never stops. Helping you look and feel great and teaching you to use products that won't slowly put your body in a state of toxic overload are the things I'm most passionate about.

Take a journey to your favorite destination; YOU! Reconnect to yourself and rediscover your bliss.
