Success Stories

"Thank you so much for your patience with me, and your firm, but gentle guidance. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with me. You have helped me to look at my life in a different way, and encouraged me to face 'reality' and work with it, for which I am grateful."


"Thanks again Sonja. The leg swelling is staying in much better control and no numbness or hurting at night. The foot compression pieces make quite a difference."


"It's nice to know that there are still people who take such pleasure in doing special things and making others feel good. Thank you for the difference you have made and make on my wife's life. Your treatments have made a great improvement."


"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."

"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!"
