SONYA TREVISI- RMT
A practicing Registered Massage Therapist since 2008, who's had an interest and talent for massage since childhood. She grew up in the lower mainland while spending her winter weekends skiing in Sun Peaks, with her family. She has now been living in Sun Peaks full time since 2012.
After graduating high school, Sonya took the opportunity to move to Sun Peaks from 2003-2006, pursuing a career in cooking. She quickly realized that wasn't for her and decided to immerse herself in an education towards becoming a registered massage therapist. Massage is something which she had always had a talent and inclination for and now it seems very obvious that is what she was always meant to do.
The beginning of her career, as a registered massage therapist, was spent working in the lower mainland, allowing her the opportunity to work with professional sport teams including the BC LIONS and Vancouver WhiteCaps, Olympians, and National level athletes. Working with chronic pain syndromes is another area in which Sonya is well experienced and passionate about. Having dealt with a few major physical traumas herself (including car accidents) she has a unique understanding of what chronic pain is from the perspective of a health professional and pain sufferer. Her hope is to provide everyone with a better understanding on how to take care and improve their health.
"The only thing we ever truly own is our bodies. Keeping it feeling good and functioning to it's full potential opens the door to infinite other good things!" Sonya
A few things Sonya in her spare time (hahahaa) can be found downhill skiing, skate skiing, paddle boarding, yoga, hiking and hula hooping. She is also an Executive Member of the newly founded (2017) Rotary Club of Sun Peaks, A Director on the Sun Peaks Skate Board Park, and President of the Cahility Creek Heritage Society. She enjoys spending time with her 2 dogs, 2 cats and chickens on her rural property near by.
