Sonia is passionate about providing nurturing and effective massage therapy for people going through diagnosis and treatment for cancer.

Having seen the benefits of massage in oncology care, Sonia is passionate about increasing the awareness of the therapeutic benefit of oncology massage. Although useful for managing stress during often a challenging time, oncology massage has been found in research studies to:
