This is by far the best massage I have ever received. It may sound hyperbolic, but it is completely true. I have never experienced a massage that encompassed true healing like this before. She is intuitive, sincere, thoughtful, and genuinely interested in your well-being—past, present, and future. I met Sonja completely by chance (I took a yoga class from the studio where her practice is located and saw a posting for massage), and I could not have been luckier. I plan to continue working with her to address the profoundly strained and tight areas of my body, but even just after the 90 minute session, she somehow alleviated 2 years of physical pain. If I could give 20 stars I would. I am so full of gratitude to have met her, let alone receive her fantastic healing massage.
I can’t say enough about Sonja’s abilities as a healer and a guide. Her training is extensive, and time with her always feels outer-worldly to me. I have had the great pleasure of being on her table for healing massage over the years. Her skills as a massage therapist are unmatched, and her power as a Reiki healer can be tangibly felt. As her client, Sonja has helped me with pain in my foot, my shoulder, and my hip, all from different injuries and at different times in my life. Recently, I was able to come in for a guided meditation and chakra alignment. I was incredibly moved (and even a bit shocked) by the power and astuteness of Sonja’s insights as to my mental, emotional, and physical states. Her intuition helped me see my life from a different angle. Her suggestions and guidance have helped me find some solace in my own journey. Her perspective is so valuable, her wisdom feels ancient, her touch is responsive, and her vibration has helped me to raise my level and better realize my truth.
Sonja gave me the most wonderful massage ever today. It was like she could hear my body’s needs through her magical hands! She worked out the kinks and knots and gave me a full report of where I’m tight and need to stretch, etc. She used aromatherapy to magnify the positive effects of the massage and spent time explaining her methods and how I might continue to experience the incredible healing effects of her massage. thank you Sonja! I’ll be back soon!
I went in for my first massage with Sonja yesterday. In 90 minutes, she was able to undo years worth of muscle tension that had built up. She took the time to get to understand me and how my body works (or doesn’t) prior to putting me on the table, and that time spent helped her put together a plan of attack that elevated her work above any other massage I have ever had in the past. Her holistic approach enabled the experience to be more than just a massage. I look forward to many future sessions!
I am not sure I could get through my week without a visit to Sonja! I’ve had many massage therapists over the years but she blows them all out of the water. Seriously. She is an incredibly intuitive and skilled therapist, easily the best I’ve had in probably 10+ years of regular massage...My sense is that she is incredibly good at tailoring treatments to the specific person. She is great at remembering/figuring out/listening to what you like/hate/what works/etc. I always leave my appointments feeling so much better than when I arrived...To top it all off, her friendly personality makes her a pleasure to be around. I always look forward to my next visit! Can’t recommend her enough!
Nearly a year later, Sonja continues to amaze me with every session. She works intuitively, knowing exactly where to work with minimal input from me and she has made a huge impact on my chronic issues.
I have dealt with chronic back trouble for most of the past decade, and in one session Sonja helped me loosen up muscles I thought never would. Despite needing more work I feel better than I have in a long time, and can’t wait to get back on the table. Thank you so much!
You might be familiar with the positive impact of massage therapy already, but FTM is a whole lot more. I’ve had about 5 sessions here, and my experiences have been exactly what I felt I needed every time. Whether I arrive with general concerns like stress, lack of energy, or recurring back pain, or a more focused challenge like a sports injury, Sonja listens with her ears and hands and offers helpful feedback and positive energy. Healing starts as soon as I arrive at the studio.
Sonja is fabulous. If I could give six stars, I would. I’ve gone to a number of masseuses in the Boston-area, and Sonja is by far my favorite. Before she even begins, she’ll sit down with you and talk about what’s going on with your body and how she can help. She tells you what the game plan is going to be for the massage and then she gets right to it. My god, she has magic hands. Plus, she’s incredibly fun and will make you feel comfortable whether it’s your first massage or your hundredth. After my massages, she has also sent me a follow-up email to see how I’m doing, which is a really nice touch. I’ve recommended her to all my friends. If you’re reading this review and on the fence, take the plunge, and give her a call. You will not regret it!
I visited Sonja four times for left shoulder problems while I was attending a Harvard Kennedy School executive education course in April-May 2015. Man did I get lucky. Sonja is a superb therapeutic masseuse and I am so bummed to be heading back home to Tampa and unable to bring Sonja with me. No doubt I would recommend Sonja to anyone as a five star massage therapist and all around nice person.
Sonja not only listens to your concerns and preferences - but has a unique sense of intuition. I have never trusted a massage therapist so much. Lying on a massage table can make you feel very vulnerable - and Sonja creates such a comfortable and safe environment - that I have been able to fully relax and trust that she will take care of me. In addition to her highly professional and experienced skills in massage therapy and body work, personally - she just projects a sense of calm and lightness. I highly recommend Sonja.
