Sonia Stocco
Remedial Massage Therapist

“We are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we are so deeply interconnected with one another.” ― Ram Dass

Sonia Stocco is a Remedial Massage Therapist with over 20 years experience. From her first weekend massage workshop she felt drawn to the healing power of massage. “If everyone had a regular massage the world would be a very peaceful and joyous place,” Sonia says.

This is what motivated her to continue her training and dedicate the rest of her life to this healing art form. By learning and exploring a variety of modalities she brings a wealth of skills to each session. With her years of experience Sonia tailors each treatment to the uniqueness of the client.

She offers Remedial massage, Bowen therapy, Myofascial Release,  Pregnancy massage, Reflexology, Reiki and Core Belief Therapy. Sonia has worked in clinics around Melbourne and overseas as well as run her own massage and mobile business for many years.

More recently her work also includes going deeper into the treatment and seeing how emotions and core beliefs cause physical dysfunctions in the body. This unveiling of the emotional causes and deep unconscious beliefs, allows a deeper healing to occur that is long lasting and can breakthrough physical pain and barriers to one reaching their potential.

This is truly one of Sonia’s greatest passions. “If we took the time to go to the core of our feelings and upsets, we would be living in a world reflecting only love and peace as we would be living from a very authentic place,” she said.

“Massage with this combination of enquiry into our beliefs is a wonderful supportive and safe combination to breakthrough old patterns and be free to live our lives at its highest potential.”

Sonia uses a number of enquiry tools and her intuitive nature to achieve this unique massage treatment. It is a very gentle and unveiling process going only as deeply as the client feels comfortable with.

Sonia loves to ride her bike, go for walks in the forest and loves practising Taekwondo. She has recently found her passion in facilitating retreats in collaboration with a creative dance therapist.

“My goal in life is to laugh, love and live an expansive full life!”
