Wellspring of Compassion is another very well written book about sensitive people. It now has a permanent place in my personal library.
I came to our sessions looking for an opening to a wall that was blocking me from even seeing what I needed to do next in the healing process. I was surprised that what came up was boundaries, though in hindsight, of course, it’s not surprising at all. I can hardly believe I didn’t see it myself, long before. But that’s what I was there for! And I can only extend my gratefulness to you for helping me come to a place, not only of acknowledging that I do in fact have boundaries, but also allowing them, respecting them, and honoring them.
Even though I realize that the healing journey has just begun, I feel unbelievably more capable and confident on that path after our reiki sessions.
Sonia Connolly is truly a gifted therapist. Not only is she very knowledgeable and skilled, she also tunes in to my needs intuitively. She stays fully present and listens to me and my body. She provides a safe place for me to receive at my full capacity. What a blessing to have found her as my massage therapist!
Over a period of several months, I came to Sonia’s Oakland, California healing studio for cranio-sacral massage and other modalities. Sonia was very compassionate and caring while being also very professional.
I had come to Sonia for relief from migraines and ended up with both reduced frequency of the migraines and relief from other stress-induced problems–shoulder and neck pain, back pain. Working with Sonia also enabled me to release some old memories and pain that were held quite deeply in my body. I was amazed at images that would come up during our work together. I am sad that Sonia moved to Portland, but everyone up there now has access to a gem of a healer.
Thank you, Sonia, for working with me and helping me out so much!
I recommend Sonia Connolly for massage therapy. I was in an auto accident and had neck pain still two years later. I had burning pain daily behind my ears. I went to Sonia for a massage. That night after the massage was the first night in two years that I had no neck pain. I steadily got better with more massages, and about a year later was rid of the neck pain.
A friend of mine sent me to Sonia as a gift when I was dealing with the aftermath of an unexpected death. That stress compounded some old injuries in my neck and low back, and Sonia very quickly had me pain free, with those areas far more relaxed and mobile than they had been for years. Under her care my body and mind sort of relaxed together, and throughout the time we worked together I continually saw improvements in my mobility, body awareness, and overall comfort. The powerful way in which she was able to connect with and relieve the physical and emotional sources of tension and discomfort was stunning, and I highly recommend her work.
When I read this, I just wanted to knock on your door, crawl up on your massage table and invite you to do your best to heal me. I haven’t even looked at the rest of your site yet, but you’ve really created a sense of safety and comfort and nurturing.

There are so many breakthroughs I experienced as your client – how to honor my feelings, be kind and gentle with myself, see different perspectives on any situation, how to mix compassion and courage.
I just wanted to say, you are AMAZING! I have been having the best couple of days after my appointment with you, even being at work hasn’t been too bad 🙂 Everything just has an air of lightness and ease to it, that I don’t think I’ve ever experienced before. Thanks again, can’t wait to meet again.
