Sonya is warm and very caring. She makes you feel right at home and is able to treat those trouble areas therapeutically so I can perform without pain. I drive all the way from Reno to see her, and the new location is fabulous!

Wonderful experience! Sonya spent the time to dial in to my needs before we even hit the table, and then listened to my body to work it exactly where I needed attention most. The massage was immensely relaxing, and I saw immediate results on my range of motion in my next training session. I will be going back for more, and making Sonya's massage a regular part of my self-care regiment.
