Bio

Attention massage therapists: If you are interested to find out how the banking and finance sector discriminates against the massage industry, please ask about my story. If you are a massage therapist, your financial security may be in jeopardy at certain national banks due to misclassification of business activity. In particular, specific banks to avoid due to discriminatory practices include Wells Fargo.


About me


Sonia Beauchamp, LMT
Sonia specializes in pain management, kupuna comfort care, and stress reduction techniques such as breathwork and relaxation. She is passionate about self-care. 
Hawaii license: MAT 7465
Massage therapist since 1999

Training
Sonia received her initial training under Donald Schuman's mind-body therapeutics program at ASM. Taking a special interest in guided imagery and meditation for pain management, she holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Hawai'i. 

Sonia is the founder of the Creative Abundance Method and is certified to teach meditation, breathwork, and infant massage. In 2008, she became an ordained minister of natural healing to preserve her right to use a holistic approach to bodywork. 

Sonia holds a Master of Arts in English and Creative Writing and believes in the unique transformative power of story-telling and poetics. She is an AP English teaching assistant and writing tutor. In her spare time, she volunteers for The Trevor Project and is a poetry reader for ANMLY: an international journal of literature and the arts. She also offers feedback as a critic for Pencilhouse, an organization offering "community-based guidance to help writers of all stripes, creeds, and classes engage the creative process and improve at their craft."

* Land acknowledgement: I would like to acknowledge that the island on which I live is part of the larger territory recognized by Indigenous Hawaiians as their ancestral grandmother, Papahānaumoku. I recognize that her majesty Queen Lili‘uokalani yielded the Hawaiian Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid the bloodshed of her people. I further recognize that Hawai‘i remains an illegally occupied state of America. For all the wisdom and beauty that Hawai'i and her kanaka maoli have gifted me, I am forever grateful.
