Success Stories

“I have suffered for many years from swollen aching legs due to lymphedema and tried many suggested therapy and exercise programs. Finally, I heard about Sonja and Healing Rivers Physiotherapy about four years ago. After a consultation and receiving information about Combined Decongestive Therapy, I received treatment. I was amazed at the results. The pressure in my legs was relieved within two weeks of massage and compression wrapping. Sonja is a true professional who is knowledgeable and takes time to explain all the issues and listen to concerns. I wish I had known more about this treatment sooner. Now I have a series of massage and compression treatments 2-3 times per year.”

She has made a difference in my health and regaining my physical functioning. I have complete confidence in her knowledge and abilities. I highly recommend her.”

“Sonja is patient and provides firm, but gentle guidance.”


“I came to Sonja with chronic sinusitis, and had to use a nose spray on a regular basis. After a few weeks of facial and intra-oral manual lymph drainage, my symptoms improved significantly and I no longer need the nose spray!”


“Had I known about your services sooner, I could have gotten treatment for my swelling and pain years ago before it got so bad!”
