PhilosophySonia believes that the psychology of health and healing is just as important as its traditional medical components. Spirituality, along with the unique narrative beliefs of each individual, shape that person's ability to achieve wellness. Unfortunately, Western medicine often dismisses the importance of this relationship.
BackgroundSonia has a degree in Psychology from the University of Hawaii in addition to over twenty years of experience as a massage therapist. Her focus is on the use of guided meditation and visualization to reduce chronic pain. She is also a certified Transformative Meditation instructor and breathwork coach.
In 2008, Sonia became an ordained minister of natural healing in order to preserve her right to use a holistic approach to massage and bodywork. She hopes to provide mutual support towards health and wholeness to those who are at odds with or lack a traditional faith-based community.
