REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Coaching services

by Emily on Mar 16
Sonya is very attentive to the different needs of my body and is not hesitant to get hands on and assist in adapting to the different movements and motions with the fascianator to get the desired result and bring about more fluidity in my body. In working with Sonya I have had a tremendous increase in my range of motion, mobility, comfort and overall quality of life. She has been so awesome to work with and has helped me increase my flexibility and relieve a lot of pain especially in my hips.
