" Sugaring. So worth it. Worth the wait to find. Worth the extra cash. No too hot wax. No cloth strips. No fear of double dipped sticks. Way more green. Way less pain. Super warm and cozy room and Bokhara's darling. Parking right in front? Too easy.  "  ~Sven S.
" I was lucky enough to find Bokhara 3 years ago and continue to feel so nurtured and nourished by her many offerings. Bokhara will welcome you into a truly zen experience that is both relaxing and restorative, all the while holding a warm, professional and creative space for you to feel pampered and cared for. Even after I moved across the bay, I continue to make the commute without a second thought. Totally worth it! "  ~Hannah R.
" Bokhara is such an intuitive esthetician and massage therapist. Her expertise and soothing nature make it such a pleasure to visit Embody Zen. She consistently achieves what I am seeking and goes above and beyond to ensure my comfort and happiness during our session. I am forever grateful to have found her!" "   ~Lily E.
" Just had my third facial with Bokhara and my skin looks AMAZING. (I told her I wanted to age backwards this year--and she's making magic happen!) Bokhara has such a calm, positive energy. Also love the zen of the spa house--the whole treatment always feels bespoke and personal. Highly, highly recommended! "   ~Anne K.
" I was drawn to Embody Zen because of Bokhara's carefully chosen organic and truly pure and natural products.  Since my first visit, I have felt safe and cared for by Bokhara's warm and skilled hands. I have entrusted Bokhara with monthly facials and bikini sugaring sessions.  It has become one of my favorite times of the month! I appreciate the time and care that Bokhara takes; I have never felt rushed in her presence and always leave feeling brighter and lighter, inside and out. I am so grateful to have found Bokhara and can't say enough to express how positive and nourishing my experience at Embody Zen has been. :) "  ~Gissel G.
