Testimonials

Sonya Gignac was an asset to Spa Connections, Inc., a world class mobile spa company based in Los Angeles. She was one of my top licensed massage therapists who was frequently requested by my celebrity clients, professional athletes, musicians and actors.

She is professional, reliable and very skilled. She is a team player, personable and a pleasure to have on board. 5-Star Hotels requested Sonya and she was available on-call, anytime, arriving to my clients within a short time frame.

Sonya listened to the needs of my clients, performing deep tissue massage, Swedish, sports massage, pre-natal and energy healing. I highly recommend her for an excellent massage, or if you’re in need of some pampering.

I had the pleasure of working with Sonya whilst doing my residencies in LA. She became part of my residency team as a body therapist and does the most amazing treatments. I would highly recommend her for anything skincare, facial and bodywork. What a fantastic therapist.

Getting a massage is a very personal experience. It’s not something you can just go to anyone for expecting the same desired results.

For many years I was in search of a massage therapist who could not only do a great job, but someone who brought amazing energy to the session helping me relax on all levels.

Isn’t that the whole purpose of getting body work done? Well let’s just say my search hasn’t been easy until I found the wonderful and special Sonya Gignac!

I am a muscular type of guy who not only works out often but loves to run too. This can at times leave have my body very sore and in need of some TLC.

And that is what Sonya is all about! She not only has the strength to get into those super tight areas but knows how to maneuver and help release the tension that’s been building up for oh so long!

Her energy is calming, positive and upbeat; all wonderful attributes to have in someone helping to take care of you.

Bottom line – Sonya is my gal and she will be yours too!!!

In my 37 years in the fitness business, I have employed the services of many massage therapists. Sonya is truly the best one I've found. She not only has the knowledge, but also the "sense", which is so critical for bodywork. She is also very caring, and very professional. I employ her services weekly, and would not consider my fitness program complete without it.

Sonya has magic hands! I love a massage that is powerful and healing yet could put me to sleep. She is strong yet I’m not holding my breath in pain. She really helped heal my back pain when she worked on me in LA. I highly recommend her! She is my GO TO massage therapist when I am filming in Vancouver 🙂

It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Sonya Gignac who I refer to as a Healing Princess. I knew she had great power from the first time I met her, and I worked with her for more than five years to develop her Healing abilities to a very high level. I taught Sonya a technique I developed which I called “S.T.A.R. Therapy”™ an acronym for Spiritual, Transformational, Affirmative, Resonance Therapy, while working as a Clinical Prof. at N.Y.U. in the Oral Medicine/Oro-Facial Pain Department. My specialty was treating Tempero-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction that often causes Migraine-type headaches as well as head, neck and facial pain, using just the Healing energy from my hands. I lectured on my technique to the faculty and the TMJ department. Sonya became adept in relieving pain and using the technique and adapting it to head, neck and facial massage. She would be an asset to any Healing facility.

I have always loved getting massages, especially deep massages that really break up knots. About 6 years ago I injured my neck and had to have surgery to fuse several vertebrae together.  Since that time I have had intermittent bouts of muscle spasms in my neck that are incredibly uncomfortable. I was always searching for a massage therapist that could relieve some of the pain, and sometimes I could find someone who would make it feel slightly better, but only temporarily.  Sonya is the only therapist I have ever known who can actually heal my neck--she does something with the other muscles in the area on the shoulder blade, the tricep, the obliques.  It's really quite remarkable:  I get a great deep, relaxing massage, instant relief from the pain, and the spasm is gone and doesn't come back (until the next time I strain my neck).

I also used to have chronic lower back pain, especially on one side.  During a massage, Sonya found some muscle or ligament in that area that was the cause of the pain. She worked on it, it was really intense, and then all of a sudden it released and I have never had pain there again. I had probably had over 20 massages specifically because of pain in that area over several years, and no one had ever found that muscle before.

I think that the reason Sonya is such an extraordinary massage therapist is that she has a very extensive working knowledge of anatomy and a natural ability to intuit areas of injury on the body.  She is a lovely person, and always very professional. Her rates are quite reasonable; I've had massages at a spa that cost twice as much and were completely ineffective.

Quite simply, Sonya is the best massage therapist that I have ever known.  She is a true healer. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best massage of their life.

Sonya is one of the best masseuses I’ve ever experienced. I was a massage therapist for 15 years so I know and have had hundreds if not thousands of massages around the world in different hotels and spas. She is one of the most talented massage therapists my body has ever experienced. She understands the anatomy and has the ability to find what is bothering your body and how to fix it. I recommend her Highly
