My specialization in Deep Tissue Massage and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage


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.
