I can’t say enough wonderful things about Sonia Sommer, she is truly gifted!

I had been dealing with an old hip injury for about 3 years. I was skeptical doing any body work, because I had tried everything, and nothing seemed to work! Not only did she work on breaking down old muscle memory, I walked out of her office every time feeling alive and balanced. I learned so much, she gave me the tools to better myself and manage pain.

I wish I would’ve found Sonia years ago!

Oh, my gosh, Sonia! Working with you was like having a giant reset button that I hit after our Skype call, and has since launched me back on track. I really appreciate your advice and gentle nature. Thank you for empowering me with your kind words and hearty knowledge. I am so glad I found you, and I can’t wait to make the changes you suggested. I am so grateful that instead of feeling defeated, you’ve reassured me that I can heal myself, which means the world to me.

I received so much empowerment from opening up to the shamanic methods. Becoming aware of my breath moved the energy blocks and increased my vitality. Tapping into my power animals uncovered the wisdom within myself. Receiving the bands of power and protection have kept me solid and centered in my self.

Thank you so much for the “rockstar” treatment you gave Colin and I. Your bodywork is incredible. Look forward to working together again somewhere down the road.

I participated in Sonia’s 10 week ‘overhaul’ as I call it, and it was better than advertised. Never having done any bodywork other than massage, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it exceeded my hopes. I started training for a half marathon (my first) and had previously had back and knee pain consistently on my runs, so I was concerned about what increasing mileage would do to my body. Sonia’s approach was thorough, professional and intuitive. From feet to head, she’s done her thing and I not only finished my 13 miles injury free, but my posture and body awareness in daily life has changed for the long term. If you’re thinking about it, it’s worth it!

Rob Reeves

Sonia is a gifted healer. Working to relieve my pain through posture alignment for the past six years I’ve found structural integration to be the missing link in my recovery. Sonia’s intuitive bodywork has allowed me to push past plateaus that had kept me stuck for years. She is a master of the body and its interconnected nature from the physical to the mental, emotional and spiritual. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Jessica Kisiel

Sports Alignment Coach, The Pain Free Athlete

Sonia’s work is completely transformational! After my first series with her I experienced more balance both in my physical body and my emotional state of being. I feel calmer more consistently and have much more energy. The head aches i used to experiences have gone almost completely. A huge thanks to Sonia for her incredible work. I am not the same person I was when I first started and I can’t wait to see how i feel after my next series!

It is impossible to articulate how much I loved the work with you and how healing it was for me on a body/mind/spiritual level. THANK YOU!!!!! I am a mother of three and while I find motherhood the greatest job on earth, it wreaks havoc on your body. When I went to see Sonia, my youngest child had just started school and I was ready to reclaim my body’s integrity, if that was even possible. My work with Sonia was amazing, thorough, life changing and life reclaiming! I consider Sonia a true master and my work with her a real gift.

My experience with you unwound the tension from a fall, but more importantly, relaxed my breathing patterns. Your gentle, effective, lengthening released held areas of tightness and balanced my muscular system so that I stood in front of you completely at ease. Thank you for your compassionate work.

Nancy Lemaster

Iyengar Yoga teacher, Grandmother

I have a hard time expressing how great the experience with you was…I felt that Sonia’s work helped bring balance into my life from a physical and spiritual place- the work took several weeks and I looked forward to every appointment. Sonia is gracious, understanding, intuitive and conscientious making every appointment an opportunity for healing and moving forward. I am very grateful for the experience and look forward to tune-ups whenever I can fit them in!!!

I had been struggling with lower back pain for nearly 4 years when I went to see Sonia.  I had sought help from physical therapists, massage therapists and chiropractors. I was burned out and nothing was really working…or working and “staying”. I was extremely frustrated and cynical!  My back improved greatly after just a few sessions with Sonia.  She helped me become aware of the mechanics of my body and how my upper and lower body weren’t working together.  She gave me “homework” and I feel that I have greatly improved!  I would say I can now see that I will once again be “whole” and active.  I am grateful and excited about being in my “new” body!

Sonia’s analysis and treatment sparked a new awareness of how my body reacts to everyday life and the sports I choose. This awareness allows me to focus on small adjustments that can affect my health in years to come.  Her knowledge paired with her keen eye give her an intuitive response to her client’s needs.

I have worked with Sonia for more than 10 years.

I arrive seasonally with some ache or pain caused by travel and stress and she mends the body before I leave.

She is easy to work with and very organized- something not found with many therapists. Her technique and knowledge of the body cannot be beat.

Mallory Walker

Retired Chairman & CEO, Walker & Dunlop, Inc

I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t walk without pain in my heel. I complained about it to a friend and she suggested I look up Plantar Fasciitis online. As soon as I read the description I knew that’s what I had but, didn’t know who to call ? Fortunately I was referred to Sonia and went to her within a week of feeling my symptoms. We started working on my calves and the relief was pretty quick. I’d heard that some people have PF for years, I was 90% better within a month.

I loved working with Sonia so much that I did the whole Structural Integration series. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I have become more aware of my body then I’ve ever been, it’s habits good and not so good. Sonia has helped me encourage the good ones and adjust the no so good ones. Our bodies are a work in progress and now I feel that whatever comes my way, I know what to do.

I skied raced pretty hard when I was a kid trying for the US Ski Team.  I didn’t quite make it but I did manage to beat myself up pretty well, and it really caught up to me later in life.  After several surgeries I ended up with a knee that needs to be replaced and a couple of disks missing in my back.  Several  doctors said I had only a few years before  I would have serious problems.

I was referred to Sonia while trying to figure out my situation.  Without any fan fair she set out to rearrange my body.  Just fixing all the muscles in my body made me work better.  My knee was missing the outside piece of cartilage so it made it bend to the outside.  One session she was able to straighten out my leg by an inch or more.  I remember getting up from the table and looking at my leg, it was totally amazing.  She also worked on my posture and gave me some tips that I think about almost every day.

But the best thing is that she showed me there was so much more I could do with my body.  It gave me the confidence to keep working at it.  I have been able to so much more, including skiing more.  It was the best money I have ever spent on my health, and I am so grateful to Sonia.

A revitalizing journey, unraveling the tangles of habit and injury and reawakening the spaces and connections within. Full of surprising insights, Sonia is a gifted and skillful guide.

Randy Hermann, MD

I had been struggling with ongoing back issues from a car accident for many years. After working with Sonia for just a few weeks I noticed how much better I felt – more integrated into my physical being than I had ever felt!  My back pain was drastically reduced.  After completing the entire series I have been far more in tune with my body than I believe I have ever known. I am a different person, able to engage my body in ways in a way that I honestly had not ever imagined.  Sonia’s a dream. She completely puts you at ease and I always felt that I could express myself wholeheartedly in our sessions. Her touch is truly gifted and the whole process was a revelatory experience. I believe working with Sonia has changed my life in ways I never imagined. I’m healthier, more present and able to embrace my life far more fully. With Sonia’s help I have unearthed the person I always wanted to discover.

Julie Harvey

Director, Harvey Art Projects USA

Sonia is the most intuitive bodywork therapist I have ever known and I have been relying on her once a week for approximately fifteen years.   I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate her thoughtful touch and perfect pressure.  I strongly believe that her restorative work has been vital to my good health and I would heartily recommend her to anyone considering working with her.  She has my eternal gratefulness.

Kiki Tidwell

President, Tidwell Idaho Foundation

Working with Sonia has been like drinking from the fountain of youth.  She has changed my life.  After years of chronic back pain and trying endless therapies, I signed-up for the full series of Structural Integration and have been amazed.  My body is pain free and feels strong and limber. My mind is clear. Her unique approach to healing is something I never expected, but will be eternally grateful for. It’s wonderful to finally find a practice that actually works!

Mark George

Owner, Accord Capital

Sonia has changed how I view my whole structure from my feet touching the earth to the top of my head. We all have scars some physical, some emotional. Sometimes it is easy to let go and other times it is held deep in the body. Structural integration has allowed my body to release  and heal from the inside out, to repair the areas that are weak and to improve the over all vessel.

So many times with massage it usually inflames the area that needs to heal and creates a longer recovery. This type of work has always made me feel stronger and balanced in my body. I call Sonia my angel, I am blessed to have found a person who truly understands and is knowledgeable in her practice.

Diana Hoover

Playing soccer, hiking, skiing, hunting, and constantly participating in various outdoor sports and activities, aging all the while, my body needs regular tune-ups and maintenance, just like an old car.  Sonia Sommer is a master mechanic.

John Campbell

Owner, Idaho Tower

Sonia has a rare ability to analyze and treat injuries and the dysfunctions causing them.  On each of my visits to Ketchum I look forward to my time with Sonia and her unique perspectives.  Invariably her work is healing and I leave her with an agenda to keep me active.  I only regret that I do not live in Ketchum so that I might see her on a regular basis.  I strongly recommend Sonia to those who seek to maintain an active and pain free life.

Wayne Allen

Presiding Judge , Eugene Oregon

Sonia has done amazing work for my husband, teenage daughter and me over the last few years. It’s hard to describe, but back problems and various joint issues have virtually disappeared after Sonia’s treatment. My natural balance and posture has returned and I have a lot more energy and sense of overall wellness. I highly recommend Sonia for bodywork that really works. I wish I could continue going, but Sonia says I’ve graduated and my body can take it from here on out!

Kathy Riedinger

Sonia works from some inner place that instinctively knows where the work must begin. From that point on, it comes from you and together you achieve what really seems an impossibility…a youthful body, a pain free body, a body that is connected to your mind and through which your spirit can express its true self.

Theresa Castellano Wood

Founder, Works of Grace Foundation

Sonia’s work was amazing.  I did everything I could to get my back better, but only what Sonia did took away the pain.  She is very gentle and kind.

Thanks to her, I have no more back pain.
