ABOUT THE FOUNDER
My name is Cierra Machado and first and foremost,
I am a mother.
Beyond that, I am currently a trauma guide and group leader for Road to Hope, a certified life coach, reflexologist and head and facial massage specialist.
It is my belief (backed by research) that our bodies keep the score and that our memories, trauma and injuries both physical and emotional can have a devastating impact on our everyday lives. Emotional pain that we believe only lives inside the mind can and does manifest physically and it is up to us to do our part to become balanced mind, body, soul.
In doing so we are giving our bodies the chance to go beyond surviving and into the state we all deserve to exist in, one of thriving. To live purposefully, to stay true to yourself, to be generous and loving this is the ethos of Chai Cie Wellness.
I too have struggled and known pain and loss intimately. My health suffered and Western medicine could not help me but I found healing and wholeness in many of the modalities I now offer.
My goal is to create a safe space for you to discover and curate your own wellness experience. It is an act of love to take care of your body, your mind and your soul. Give that gift to yourself and know that you deserve nothing less.
"We are where the head meets the heart; the soul meets the body, and the mind is free.."
Trauma Guide/ Life Coach
You are in charge of your life and have the power to dictate who you become and where you go from here.
Perhaps you haven’t yet connected with your deeper purpose or are struggling to feel present in your own life, let us explore why. I cannot tell you anything you don’t already know but I can help you dive deep and discover those truths for yourself. I’m here only as a guide, to hold your hand through the journey of uncovering who you truly are.
Spoiler alert: who you are is a person worthy of love and deserving of good and beautiful things.
Everything else is a lie perpetuated by social conditioning and you never have to believe it again if you don’t want to.

Many people choose natural therapies to help them cope with various health related issues. My belief is that everything within the body is connected, thus a holistic approach is required. Natural therapies aren’t just a band aid, they allow us to look at the entire picture so that we may get to the source and find lasting healing. The therapies offered by Chai Cie Wellness are often far less intrusive than medical treatments yet still achieve amazing results. Illness prevention, self-healing and healthy living are the foundation of the modalities we offer because we believe perfect health isn’t a destination but a continuous journey.

Reflexology therapies are natural therapeutic methods derived from the principle that there are pressure points on the body that connect each of our systems, glands and organs to one another. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology can reduce tension and stress, improve circulation and help the body return to homeostasis or its’ natural balance. Reflexology is also one of the most effective therapies for stress relief, pain, insomnia and anxiety.
Facial massages help stimulate the circulation of the blood towards the skin and cellular growth. In our quest to prevent aging, facial massage helps to tighten the skin and promote elasticity without any invasive procedures. This treatment includes cleansing the face, adding a custom handmade mask and infusing your glow with face oils. All of our products are gifted and handcrafted by our local friends at MajesticMe. This magical relaxation experience will plump, glow and relax not just your skin, but your entire being
Indie Head Massage
Indie Head Massage was originally developed by women who used different oils to keep their hair strong, lustrous and in beautiful condition. It has been practiced for over a thousand years in India as a tradition of family grooming and is now a therapy more broadly used to improve health. The benefits of this treatment include the promotion of hair growth and thickness, helping to tone muscle and relieve stress, alleviating neck pain and headaches and boosting the immune system.
Head to Toe Relaxation Massage
This includes all 3 modalities. Indie head massage, face massage and reflexology. We are focusing on the body from the scapula to the head (our most tense muscles from day to day life). And we are letting go of toxins from the feet focusing on bringing our body back to homeostasis. This treatment incorporates the use of aromatic essential oils to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. The oils and plant extracts chosen are customized for your individual needs and can also be used at home to facilitate further healing. This is the perfect treatment to achieve overall peace. Today and every day.
We understand that these times are hard and we want to be able to support our clients in more ways than one. Villages and communities are just as important as the individuals in them. We must start there. We are here to provide support, help you regroup and reground you into the person you deserve to be.
Our give back program is open for donations, as well as nominations. You can give your loved one or fellow community members the gift of giving to themselves. Gift certificates are also available upon request. They are the perfect way to show your appreciation for the special people in your life.
I don't have exact measurements. I free poor and taste along the way. It's all about creating what speaks to you and your taste. Masala Chai is an ode to my ancestors. It is the warmth and comfort I seek in all aspects of my life. I drink Masala Chai and tea every day. It is a daily routine of mine. Whether it is to welcome my day in the morning or it is to give me solace to sleep in the evening. Masala Chai is traditional, it is raw, it is history.
Black tea of choice (loose leaf or bagged)
Spices: dried or fresh ginger, cardamom pods, cinnamon, cloves, peppercorns and star anise
Milk of choice (I use 3.25% milk because I like it thick & sweet)
Water (I use 1/3 water, 2/3 milk)
Bring milk water and lightly crushed spices to a boil
Lower and simmer for 10 mins
Add sweetener of choice to taste (I prefer using brown sugar for this recipe)
Masala Chai influenced the name and founding of Chai Cie Wellness by its very definition and representation. To me it represents coming into self, traditionally. To be grounded within, acknowledging one's history, accepting one's truth; Coming home. Chai Cie Wellness is me, Cierra, in her raw element, living in her truth and being comfortable doing so. Sharing with the world, herself and in doing so inspiring others to do the same.
