Sonja is amazing! I thought it would hurt to get the knots out of my neck, jaw and shoulders, but it absolutely did not. First day I have not had a headache in weeks!

She was thorough and such fun to be around. I loved her attention to detail and the follow-up text with the pictures and instructions was the bomb.

Sonya makes space for you to feel and process however you need to. You can weave in and out of conversation while on her table and it’s all accepted and never awkward. She has a keen awareness of when you just need to breathe and relax and when a kind word would be welcomed. Such a rare find in the industry!!

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.
