I have received 2 massages from Sonya as well as a handful of Water Release Therapy Sessions in the swimming pool. I feel like Sonya really listens to what you need that particular day and every session was worth it’s weight in gold. She has a magnificent healing touch. She always left me feeling utterly relaxed and relieved.
If the opportunity arises for you to receive healing touch from Sonya take it! She is truly a gift to this earth and has so much to offer in terms of healing and nervous system relaxation. I have had probably 15 massages from Sonya as well as a handful of Water Release Therapy sessions in the swimming pool. Both were so restorative and so calming for my nervous system and muscles. Going through a health crisis and being in chronic pain at the time when Sonya came into my life, I am beyond grateful I found her. She listens to the body in an intuitive way and no session is alike because she really meets you where you are in that moment and day.
Sonya is amazing! She is so communicative and listens to my aches and pains. I feel like she's on of the first masseuses who really listens to me! I always leave a session feeling amazing and I use my time with her to get centered. I'm so thankful to have her in my life!

15 Minutes   •   FREE

Healing Body Work Session
A 2 hour session starts with a conversation about what's alive in your body, mind and heart. We discuss how to address your needs and continue with an hour and a half of hands-on energy and massage treatment. As we move through the body, we work to calm the nervous system to begin to enact deep healing from the inside. Afterward, we take time to integrate the sensations that were experienced. You'll leave feeling deeply relaxed and cared for.

Wild Movement Classes
Can be group or one on one sessions where we go out into nature spaces to move. We get to absorb fresh air and sunshine as we work on mindfulness practices in the context of moving the body. Slow movement, combined with breathwork and attentiveness, allow the body to access more of its innate flexibility and strength.

About me

For over a decade I've been practicing the energy work known as Reiki, and am certified as both a Massage and WRT Water Release Therapy® Practitioner. This combination has set me apart by offering a much needed mix of energetic work and physical work. By using this combination and talking through what's alive in your body, we can get closer to the root of what's imbalanced, physically, mentally and emotionally. For those unfamiliar, Water Release Therapy is a therapy performed in body temperature water, where receivers are floated, moved and massaged in weightlessness; an incredible gift to the repertoire of a lifelong water baby. I've been working with families for 15 years, and feel affinity working with pregnant mommas. My practice extends to all people who feel the need for care and wellness, and who appreciate the subtler work of energetic flow, including the elderly and those working through trauma.

My Philosophy of Care

I've always been inspired to work with families, and it started with being an older sister by 12 years to my youngest sibling, which evolved into caring for families over the last couple decades. Touch is my love language its no surprise I found my way into massage therapy. Giving healing touch to others to help move stagnancy and create flow within the heart, mind and body is a powerful tool to assist humanity in treating ourselves, each other and the planet better. For about a decade I've been been practicing yoga and body awareness. Its over the last 5 years that I formally began certification processes for Massage Therapy, Yoga Instruction and Water Release Therapy to pair education with intuition in order to provide a well rounded approach to self care and wellness.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

One would be received as if they are being held in highest regard and finally given a chance to rest. In doing so the defenses can crack open and allow healing to happen from within. The receiver will likely experience emotions, or memories, or sensations as their body begins to relax and let go. Afterward the receiver can expect to feel much lighter and calmer.

My Inspiration

Discovering how gentleness can be a profound catalyst for healing. Everything is energy; our nervous system is made of electric synapses. When the body is able to relax, you can release the charge that can be built up as nervous energy in different places in the body. The world would be such a sweeter place if everyone had access to care that could meet them where they are.
