My specialization in Deep Tissue Massage and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage





TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO


Good morning everyone. This is Sonia, the Haleiwa Massage Muse at Integrated Massage Last week, Quite a few of you wanted to know what my specialties are, So I thought that would be a great topic for this weeks video post. First and foremost, I will always be a deep tissue therapist. I love deep tissue massage, it feels amazing, and I specifically sought out a school that offered a deep tissue specialization program. That being said, I am not one of those therapists who believe in the old saying, “no pain, no gain” This old way of thinking is simply not the truth. Current research supports the fact that massage therapy should feel good and should always be performed within the patient's comfort level. This being said, deep tissue massage is subjective depending on the person who receives it. One person may need very firm pressure while gently pressure is sufficient for someone else. A good massage therapist is able to adjust their technique accordingly. For those of you who are athletes, surfers, bodybuilders or crossfitters, I also do barefoot massage which allows me to use my full bodyweight while I apply pressure with my feet. Behind me, you can see my ashiatsu overhead bars. In addition to working on people with an active lifestyle, I also specialize in working with chronic pain patients using a holistic approach that includes massage therapy, breathwork, and guided meditation and visualization when applicable. This could be a topic for a different video, as we are out of time for today. Mahalo for tuning in this week, and I’ll see you again soon.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me. I am always happy to answer your questions. Follow me on social media for the latest massage therapy news. See more videos on my vlog page.

Sincerely,
Sonia Beauchamp

Video Blog: Meet the Haleiwa Massage Muse

Aloha everyone,

Here is a brief video introduction for those of you who have never met me before. Watch this video to find out more about our Waialua massage clinic and our mission to make massage accessible to the public. Also, find out about our community wellness program where massage therapy starts at $50.

Transcription of the video:

Week of August 6 2018.


Aloha, my name is Sonia and I own Integrated Massage and Deep TIssue therapy in Waialua

I have been located inside the Ka’ala Healing Arts center since 2005, and have been a massage therapist since 1999.

I wanted to make a brief video to introduce myself and the goals of my massage clinic.
Mainly, I want to make massage therapy accessible to the public. Massage has such an amazing impact on quality of life, and I would like to see more people benefit from it, not just wealthy people who go to high-end spas and specialty clinics, but everyday people of all income levels.

I opened up my clinic in 2005 to get out of the high-end massage market and offer my services based on health, wellness, and pain relief. I have done my best to accept all health insurance plans that cover massage therapy and also take personal injury cases whenever possible. For those of you who don’t have coverage for massage, I have started a community wellness program that offers treatment sessions starting at $50.

I love what I do for a living, and I look forward to answering any questions you might have. Please don't hesitate to give me a call or email at any time. See more videos on my vlog page.

Best Massage Tool for Headaches

The Adjustable Neck and Shoulder Four Knob Trigger Point Self-Massage Tool:

I discovered this massage tool last year at a discount store for under $10 and purchased it for my collection of self-massage tools. I didn't have high expectations... BUT it ended up outperforming my $250 Clark Enterprises "Kneading Fingers" machine. This little purchase has been the best investment to relieve migraines! I never would have guessed just by looking at it, but it's amazing!

This handy gadget is the best self-massage tool on the market for anyone who suffers from headaches due to neck tension. It is simple to use and can easily slide into any suitcase or carry-on. You don't need to plug it in or use batteries. All it needs is a gentle squeeze of both hands together. Each knob pulls out and rotates into either a narrow setting or a wide setting.

ORDER THIS SELF MASSAGE TOOL FROM AMAZON ON MY WEBSITE

You can use this product in a number of ways. Depending on which position the knobs are placed in, you can massage your lower cervical region or the upper neck and the area around the first and second cervical vertebrae.


Note how the position of my hands and the direction in which I hold the tool alters which muscles are targeted.



You can have your hands lowered like in the top picture, or you can have your hands above your head like the second picture.


I have found that the most amazing way to use this tool is LYING DOWN using the hand position in the second picture. It feels so good because you can completely relax your head and neck muscles. If you let your head go limp on the floor, you can even provide gentle traction away
from your body which can help reduce headaches and provide immediate relief.

To do this, simply imagine that I am lying down in the second photo instead of sitting.







Feel free to be creative with massage tools. Go easy. Start with less pressure and work your way up in order to prevent doing too much too fast and making yourself sore. If you have an injury or existing medical condition, make sure you get an evaluation from a medical doctor before you attempt self-massage.

If it feels good then it's working! 

If it is painful, you should stop immediately! Simple!

Order your trigger point self-massage tool for headaches, migraines, and neck tension from Amazon.

Self-care Massage Products

I am a big advocate for self-care. Receiving massage therapy is fantastic, but what happens when you are unable to book an appointment? What happens when you feel a killer migraine coming on and are so nauseous that you cannot drive? This is when self-massage tools are really handy. I use massage tools on myself on almost a daily basis, and I constantly am recommending them to my clients.

Purchase massage products from amazon.com by using the links on my website under the "products" tab.

Now, if you go to the products page on my website at http://www.haleiwamassagemuse.com/p/products.html you can see all of my favorite massage tools. If you want to find out how to relieve back pain, muscle pain, or headaches, then visit this page and call me with any questions. 

It is my goal to help people be pain-free. By learning how to take care of yourself between massage appointments, you will feel healthier and happier. 

Love always,
Sonia Beauchamp

Spring Announcements

Greetings everyone! Springtime has finally arrived, and I will be away on a brief vacation during the first week of April of 2018.


We will be temporarily closed during the week of April 3rd, 2018 while I am off the island celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary. It will be the first time that my husband and I have taken a trip without our children.

If you are looking to book a massage in Waialua near Haleiwa during this time, please give one of the other amazing therapists at the Ka'ala Healing Arts Center a call. You could also consider getting acupuncture for pain relief from Jen Lau in the same building.

Thank you so much for your understanding. I apologize for any inconvenience, and I look forward to seeing you at your next appointment. I love what I do for a living, and it is my pleasure to serve the community.

Aloha everyone. Most of you already know that I am only at the center three days a week. Please call in advance to make an appointment before dropping by. On occasion, I may run errands or work at other locations around the island, so I am not always in the office during my hours.

The Ka'ala Healing Arts center is still open seven days a week by appointment only.

Mahalo for your support. Give me a call to book your North Shore massage in Waialua near the town of Haleiwa. I love what I do, and I look forward to working with you!
