Massage Therapy

In our busy world with scant touch, massage therapy provides an opportunity for release and connection. It offers release from tight muscles, physical pain, and a jumbled mind, and connection to a more peaceful and centered reality. Massage presents an occasion to slow down and soak up some of these vital needs. It can be a very potent agent of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Desert Harbor is very pleased to offer the tender skill of Sonya Bergschneider Benson. Sonya is a locally and nationally certified massage therapist who has been practicing in the Southwest since 1997. She takes great joy in offering the positive, healing qualities of massage therapy with guests of Desert Harbor.

Swedish Massage

This massage is designed to gently unwind the mind and body. Long and soothing strokes, a light touch and your choice of essential oil give the body and spirit space and rythm to relax and drift off. Everything in this massage is intended for gentleness with a kind, calming touch as your senses unwind from the stresses of life.

Prenatal Massage

For the Mama-to-be, prenatal massage gives the changing and expanding body an oasis of rest and relief. A pregnancy pillow is used after the first trimester so mama and baby can find comfort while still receiving a full body massage. You may rest at ease, trusting Sonya’s intimate understanding of safe prenatal massage technique.

We ask that guests pay Sonya directly. She currently accepts cash or check.

In the privacy of the cottage! No driving across town and being induced into a deeply healing and meditative state, to then have to fight traffic to get home – or your next appointment. Just roll off the table, back into bed, or one of our quiet outdoor lounging spots.

Please mention your interest in massage therapy when you inquire with us, what day during your stay you would prefer a massage, whether 60 or 90 minutes suits you best, and we will arrange an appointment for you.

Sonya’s license numbers are: NMLMT 5568 (New Mexico Licensed Massage Therapist) and NCTMB 506616-06 (Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork)
