Traditional Floor Shiatsu and Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage

Aloha Friends,

I am excited to announce that we are now offering traditional Asian Floor Massage in the form of Zen Shiatsu and Ashiatsu (Barefoot Massage) on the North Shore of Oahu. In addition to my extensive training in Zen Shiatsu,  I also have training in Thai Stretching, Anma, and Tui Na. During your Traditional Asian Massage, I will incorporate the best techniques to suit your specific needs. My massage office is located in Waialua, just outside of historic Haleiwa town.

What is Shiatsu Massage?

Shiatsu Photo Courtesy of
Shiatsu is the Japanese word meaning "finger pressure." Traditionally, this massage is performed on a soft mat or futon on the floor and allows for your massage therapist to use their entire body weight to perform the techniques. It often incorporates full body stretches, and compression with the practitioner's fingers, thumbs, hands, knees, and feet. 

Shiatsu is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and works along with the meridian channels of the body to create balance and harmony within the energetic system. Shiatsu can also be explained within the paradigm of Western Medicine as affecting the nervous system through the application of therapeutic pressure thus reducing pain. 

Shiatsu benefits both the massage client and the massage therapist because it allows for endless applications of technique that aren't limited to being performed on top of a table. 

What is Traditional Floor Ashiatsu Massage?

Ashiatsu is the Japanese word that means "foot pressure." Ashiatsu is the incorporation of the use of the massage therapist's feet to perform the massage techniques. American massage therapists have their own interpretation of this style of massage that uses oil/ cream and the use of overhead bars that are mounted on the ceiling. Traditional Japanese Ashiatsu is usually performed on the floor with no lubrication. This allows for a deep and focused application of pressure along the body's meridian points. We are trained in both Japanese and Western Ashiatsu (Sometimes called Deep Feet Bar Therapy, Ashiatsu Bar Therapy, or AOBT).

What do I wear during a Traditional Floor Shiatsu Massage?

Your clothes should cover your entire body and allow for freedom of movement and stretching. We suggest all cotton clothing that covers your arms and legs and has a loose neckline. Yoga or exercise clothing is usually suitable as well. Your massage will be performed fully clothed. 

Call now to book your Traditional Floor Massage!

I would love to answer any of your questions. I have extensive training in Shiatsu massage therapy and am so excited to finally be offering it at my North Shore Massage clinic in Waialua, Hawaii.

New North Shore Massage Services: Bamboo Massage

Aloha Friends,

Going into 2019, I have decided to revitalize my massage clinic in Waialua. For the time being, I am operating as a single-practitioner office, so this is a great time to upgrade my services and dedicate some time towards mastering new techniques.

What is Bamboo Massage (Bamboossage)?

Bamboo massage is performed with heated lengths of either bamboo or rattan. It is similar to hot stone massage in theory, except the cylindrical shape of bamboo allows for the option of firmer deep tissue massage as well as relaxing circulatory work. Bamboossage is amazing because the heat penetrates your muscles and allows for deep relaxation.

For a limited time, I am offering a free bamboo massage upgrade with any holistic massage service. I invite you all to try it out and see for yourself how amazing it feels. Just let me know when booking your appointment, and I will make sure to include additional time. After this trial offer, clients will have to pay an additional fee for Bamboo Massage.

Hope to see you soon!

In order to provide Massage Services, we may collect personal data from you. Before making a booking with us please read our privacy policy.


Details on how to make a Massage Appointment are set out below.


You confirm that you are of legal age to access and use Our Website and/or Our Massage Services and of legal capacity to agree to Our Terms. You are not eligible to use Our Massage Services if you are under the age of 18. We ask that all minors under the age of 18 do not submit any personal information to us. Minors of 18 years old and younger may partake in treatment by Integrated Massage only when consent has been given by a parent or guardian. In some cases, it may be required that a parent accompany the minor to their treatment.


We provide a range of massage therapy treatments. In some instances, when the owner is unable to perform the massage service due to scheduling conflicts, injury, or illness, independent self-employed professional massage therapists may be used.  Integrated Massage has no responsibility for any Massage Treatments that are provided by any therapist other than Sonia Beauchamp. Each independent therapist that we use for substitution is required to have their own professional license and liability insurance.


You can schedule a massage through our website or by phone, email, in-person, or text message.

Online booking is not available for medical massage or massage that is covered by insurance or other third-parties.

Your payment details may be requested at the time of booking and payment will be collected when you make an appointment online.

Full payment of the Treatment Fee is due at the time of scheduling if your Massage is booked online, and we reserve the right to request full payment before reserving your place in our schedule at any time in all other circumstances.

By making an appointment you agree to provide complete, correct and true information including without limitation billing and payment information.

Once your booking is accepted and confirmed, you will receive confirmation of your appointment by your preferred contact method (email, text message, or phone call/ voice message).

By making a booking, you are responsible for:

Full payment of the applicable Treatment Fee;

For on-call massage services: Ensuring the Therapist has access to your Designated Premises which must, in all cases, represent a suitable space in which the Massage can be performed, with all appropriate facilities (including, adequate lighting, shade, and heating); and

For on-call massage services: Ensuring the health and safety of the Massage Therapist while at your Designated Premises.

All Treatment Fees are payable through the Square Marketplace or over the telephone. As noted above, we sometimes use outside Independent Therapists and when applicable, will collect payment of Treatment Fees on behalf of the Independent Therapist to whom we charge a Fee to cover our cost of business operations.


The price of Massage Treatments varies according to the type and duration of the Massage Treatment you book and also the location of the premises you have designated for the Massage Treatment to be provided to you. Treatment Prices are set from time to time and the Treatment Price you will be required to pay for a specific Massage Treatment will be determined by reference to the Treatment Prices in force at the date when that Massage Treatment is booked.

Full treatment menu and prices are set out on Our Website. If the service is performed as an out-call, we will agree to a travel and set-up fee ahead of time with each client.


In addition to the responsibilities noted above, it is your responsibility to provide complete and accurate information at the time of booking. Failure to provide complete and accurate information may result in a rejection of your booking request, cancellation of your booking or an inability of the booked Independent Therapist to provide the Massage Treatment as requested. Such failure may also result in loss or incorrect delivery of your booking confirmation and forfeit of your prepayment.


You acknowledge that you do not have any statutory right to cancel a booking made for a Massage Treatment. However, you have a contractual entitlement to cancel any booking you have made with an Independent Therapist through us in the following circumstances and on the described terms.

Subject to the cancellation being a Late or Very Late Cancellation (as described below), if you change your mind about your booking prior to the agreed appointment start time in that booking then the Massage Therapist will be willing to treat your booking as cancelled (without requiring payment of all or any part of the applicable Treatment Fee and without levying any cancellation fee) if you cancel your booking via calling 808-285-3009:

at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the Massage Appointment Time

Massage Appointment Times falling within twenty-four (24) hours of the time of booking must be canceled within three hours of booking or else payment is subject to forfeit.

If your cancellation of a booking is:

within forty-eight (48) hours of the Massage Appointment Time; or

after the 3 hour Grace Period has elapsed

Then the Therapist will be entitled to retain one hundred percent (100%) of the applicable Treatment Fee because your cancellation represents a Very Late Cancellation. For massage services that have not been prepaid, a late cancellation or no-show fee of $40 will be charged.

You will also be charged the full Treatment Fee by the Therapist if you:

Cancel a booking other than as permitted above;

Attempt to cancel a booking on or after Massage Appointment Time; or

Fail to attend a booking at the Massage Appointment Time and/or at the Designated Premises.

A cancellation fee is charged in order to compensate the Therapist because it is not reasonable to expect that Therapist to be able to provide Massage Treatments when you cancel with short or no notice.

Cancellation fees may in our absolute discretion be waived where you have been unable to cancel a booking without incurring the cancellation fee for genuine reasons which were outside of your control.

Cancellations due to illness

We never charge a fee for late cancellations due to illness or injury. Please give us a call at any time if you become ill and we will cancel your service with no penalty. You must call as soon as possible to notify us of your illness or injury. No-shows are still subject to penalty.


If you wish to extend the time you have booked, the Therapist will try to fulfill your request, but this is not guaranteed. This is subject to the availability of the Massage Therapist and also payment of an additional charge for the extended time which may vary.

If you are delayed and unable to start the Massage Treatment at the Designated Premises at the Massage Appointment Time by more than 15 minutes then:

The Therapist may choose to be unavailable for your appointment and leave the premises. Your massage will be treated as a no-show with a $40 penalty fee or complete forfeiture of prepayment.

the Therapist is entitled to end the Massage Treatment at the time agreed when the booking was made without making any adjustment to the Treatment Fee to reflect the reduced time of the Massage Treatment; or

if you and the Therapist agree to proceed with the Massage Treatment for the full time allotted notwithstanding the delayed start time, then Independent Therapist shall be entitled to receive and you shall be obliged to pay before the relevant Massage Treatment is given, an additional charge will be calculated.


Every effort is made by us to provide the service booked by you, the customer. However some circumstances beyond our control may prevent this, things such as (but not limited to) :

Adverse or severe weather conditions

Road traffic accidents and delays

Vandalism and terrorism

Industrial action by third parties

Problems caused by other customers

If it was not possible to provide the booked service at the time requested due to one of the above reasons, We will try to reschedule your appointment for another time during your current stay. However, if this is not possible, a voucher of equal value to the postponed appointment will be provided for use or your money will be refunded.

Integrated Massage and Deep Tissue Therapy and your Therapist will not incur any liability whatsoever in the event of delay due to circumstances out of there control.

I have written this privacy policy to the best of my abilities based on the models available from other massage therapy businesses. I am not trained in internet privacy policy or legal matters. Please inform me of any mistakes.


By visiting the Haleiwa Massage Muse website for Integrated Massage and Deep Tissue Therapy (the Site) and providing information to Integrated Massage and the owner, you are accepting and consent to the practices and provisions of our Privacy Policy.

Personal Information Collection

We may collect personal information from you in a variety of ways, including when you visit our Site, complete a form, make a purchase, and in connection with massage therapy services, inquiries, resources we make available, and confirmation of insurance benefits. You may be asked for name, mailing address, email address, phone and fax numbers, credit/debit card information and other personal contact details (“Personal Information”), information to verify your insurance policy and its benefits, your medical history, and other details that will help us to plan your massage treatments. We also may collect information on your views and preferences as they relate to our services.

Any and all Personal Information you provide to us through this Site is provided on a voluntary basis, and how much you disclose is up to you.

In some cases, such as on your social media profile pages, social media user forums, and elsewhere on social media, any Personal Information you provide may be accessible to the general public and is not considered confidential. Where you have publicly posted Personal Information, such as reviews, Integrated Massage and Deep Tissue Therapy is free to reproduce, publish, or otherwise use such information for any purposes.


Like all medical professions, we collect, use and disclose personal information in order to serve our clients. For our clients, the primary purpose for collecting personal information is to provide treatment. For example, we collect information about a client's health history, including their family history, physical condition, function and social situation in order to help us assess what their health needs are, to advise them of their options and then to provide the health care they choose to have. A second primary purpose is to obtain a baseline of health and social information so that in providing ongoing health services we can identify changes that occur over time.


Like most organizations, we also collect, use and disclose information for purposes related to or secondary to our primary purposes. The most common examples of our related and secondary purposes are as follows:

To invoice clients for goods or massage services that were not paid for at the time, to process credit card payments or to collect unpaid accounts.

Our massage clinic reviews clients and other files for the purpose of ensuring that we provide high-quality massage services, including assessing the performance of our staff. In addition, external consultants (e.g., auditors, practice consultants) may on our behalf do audits and continuing quality improvement reviews of our Massage Clinic, including reviewing client files and interviewing our staff.

Massage Therapists are regulated by the state of Hawaii and other licensing boards that may inspect our records and interview our staff as a part of their regulatory activities in the public interest. In addition, as professionals, we will report serious misconduct, incompetence or incapacity of other practitioners, whether they belong to other organizations or our own. Also, our organization believes that it should report information suggesting serious illegal behavior to the authorities. External regulators have their own strict privacy obligations. In these circumstances, we may consult with professionals (e.g., Lawyers, Accountants) who will investigate the matter and report back to us.

The cost of goods/massage services provided by the organization to clients is often paid for by third parties (e.g., motor vehicle accident insurance, private insurance). These third-party payers often have the client's consent or legislative authority to direct us to collect and disclose to them certain information in order to demonstrate client entitlement to this funding.

Clients or other individuals we deal with may have questions about our goods or massage services after they have been received. We retain our client information for a mandatory minimum of ten years after the last contact to enable us to respond to those questions and provide these services.

North Shore Standing Massage Appointments

Happy New Year's 2019,

Massage is one of the best ways to keep your body feeling good, but it is easy to get caught up with things and let that weekly or monthly massage fall off your schedule. One of the best ways to get around this problem is to book a standing massage appointment at the beginning of each year. Not only does it ensure that you remember to make your appointment, but it also helps your massage therapist plan their schedule.

Call our Waialua massage clinic near Haleiwa to book your standing massage appointments for 2019

Why book a standing appointment for massage?

Standing appointments keep you from forgetting to take care of yourself. If you already have your massage in your planner, it is easier to schedule other events around it. Getting massage therapy on a regular basis has helped many people reduce their level of pain and elevate their performance. Many times, if you wait until the last minute to book your massage, your therapist cannot fit you in their schedule. You might have to book with a massage therapist that is not as good as you hoped for, or you might have to settle with an alternative therapy. 

I don't know my schedule in advance, how do I book standing massage appointments?

Booking a standing massage appointment ensures that your therapist keeps time for you at the appropriate intervals. You can always change your standing appointments when it gets closer to the date. It actually makes it easier to anticipate scheduling problems when there is a loose schedule in place. 

Call now to book your standing massage appointments in Waialua for 2019.

Whether you receive weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly massages, call now to set up your appointments for this year. There is nothing more upsetting than when I have to turn people down because I have no time in my schedule. Help me prevent this from happening by booking all your massage appointments now. Give me a call, I am always happy to help.

Have a happy New Year!

North Shore Massage Gift Certificates for the Holidays

Aloha Everyone,

As we roll into the holiday season, I just wanted to make a quick blog post to keep in touch with everyone. Although I will be traveling the week of Christmas and New Years, I can still sell massage gift certificates online. All you have to do is fill out the form on my website located on the tab that says "gift certificates." Then, I will email you an invoice to pay securely online. After I receive your payment, I can email a gift certificate notice to the recipient or you can print it out to give them yourself. It is so easy to buy your last minute holiday massage gift!

I also want to announce that I have just started accepting UHA health insurance for massage therapy. Some plans cover up to $500 a year, so feel free to give me a call if you have any questions. 

It has just been announced that in 2019, some Medicare Type C plans will cover massage therapy. This is tremendous news, and I am so excited. Massage therapy is finally being covered by health insurance. Hopefully, Tricare in Hawaii will be next. There is some buzz on social media about certain states offering massage benefits to military personnel, so I hope that our state will be among those soon! I will begin calling around at the start of the year to see if I can find out any information about massage therapy coverage.

Read this article from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to find out more about the services they are expanding to cover in 2019. This will include massage therapy for some "Type C" Medicare Plan holders. 

The American Massage Therapy Association has also written a brief article that highlights Medicare Massage coverage in 2019

I just want to thank all of my amazing clientele for supporting my business over the years. I love being a massage therapist, and I put my heart and soul into what I do. Your feedback means everything to me, and I would love to hear from you about how I can improve my clinic in 2019. I have been thinking about investing in a new hot stone set and a hot towel cabi. What else would you like to see me offer?
