Sonia delivers the perfect mix of healing modalities. She provides a safe space for me to open up and then gently moves my body toward healing. Her work is deep and gentle and just exactly what is called for.

One of the best massages I've ever had in many years of getting massage. I scheduled a 60-minute massage. 20 minutes into the massage, I was getting such improvement in back pain that I asked whether we could make it a 90-minute massage. She did extend the time and it was really worthwhile. And I don't usually feel immediate improvement from a massage!
Sonia was very good at getting tight, painful muscles to relax. Her massage technique uses very smooth and gentle movements -- nothing abrupt or startling. Besides the pain management, I get massage because it feels good and her massage is really enjoyable and soothing.
She was also very encouraging about giving her feedback: if anything hurt or if I didn't like something she was doing -- that way I got exactly the kind of massage I wanted. Her whole process makes it a safe experience emotionally.
Her table is very comfortable -- the best face cradle I've ever encountered: very cushy. And the sheets are flannel, so I was immediately warm and cozy. I also got a warm rice bag for my feet - I was in heaven.
