Our origins...

Sophia Marzocchi is a skin care therapist and founder of holistic wellness and beauty haven: Spa Sophia in Venice Beach, CA.

Sophia grew up in the remote coastal town of Bolinas in Northern California, where a reverence for nature, sustainability and the arts were a part of the community and are values that she continues to foster. Sophia attended UC Santa Cruz to major in Women’s Studies, which then prompted her move to Brazil to work with a non-profit focusing on women's health.

After moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the arts, it was during this time that Sophia struggled with her own inexplicable skin issues. It gave her a stark awareness of beauty ideals and pressures in relation to self confidence. It was this personal experience that spurred her to begin her own skincare journey. The solutions always left her feeling worse - harsh chemicals that dried and stripped the skin or do-nothing natural products that left the skin greasy and congested. There needed to be a holistic solution that blended nurturing botanicals with active ingredients.

Sophia is now a master esthetician. Her private practice's demand quickly led her to expand into what is now a thriving business, Spa Sophia. A family of passionate, dedicated and expert estheticians, massage therapists and an Ayurvedic practitioner who share the same vision.

At Spa Sophia, our team is dedicated to creating holistically-based, scientifically-proven, carefully vetted treatments. Spanning from cutting-edge cosmeceutical procedures to time proven alternative practices; a luxurious, therapeutic experience for whole mind, body and spirit rejuvenation.

Spa Sophia is a little slice of heaven on Abbot Kinney!
