My name is Sonje Rosie and currently reside in Cairns, Queensland.
Spending the first 18 years of my life in Bordertown, South Australia, my experience with health care was well and truly outside the box of what was considered “normal”. My mother, Faye Rosie, until her passing in 2017 was a Naturopath, Shaman and Medical Intuitive, among the many other modalities she used in practice. In the latter years of her life, she created the Heart Healing Symbol Oracle Cards © , a multi-dimensional energetic healing tool that I like to use both professionally and personally. She is certainly a great influence in my life, and so I feel it was only natural for me to step into this field too.
I lived in Darwin during my early adult years where my eldest daughter was born, before moving to Cairns in 2004. For 12 years, I worked in Community Aged and Disability Care. I adore being of service to others but felt there was more I could be doing.
5 years ago, I fell in love with Hawaiian Bodywork and met my teacher Dawn Charlton, the current lineage holder of Traditional Old Style Hawaii Lomi Lomi massage. As part of my training with Dawn, I was fortunate to travel to Hawaii to immerse myself in the culture and history of this ancient modality.
In the ensuing years, I have been training in several different modalities including Holistic Pulsing, Pellowah, and more recently The Emotion Code© and TheBode Code™ techniques. All these modalities can work well together or on their own to assist you to bring about a greater sense of homeostasis (balance) in your life.
As a firm believer in a holistic approach to healing, it is my desire to support you in your own self-healing journey towards wholeness in the hope that we all can live our lives with greater ease, harmony, and well-being.
"We are a triune being, consisting of a spirit, a soul and a body. When we discover the wholeness within, the things seemingly impossible to us are possible by the power of the spirit within."
I came to my massages with Sonje at a time of deep grief, of heartbreak. I was housesitting in the area for a month and half; I knew my body, soul and heart needed tenderness, care. Healing.
I listened, and heard to look on Facebook for a massage Practitioner in the area of my housesit. And there she was; a Lomi Lomi Practitioner, whose Aloha spirit of soft and open heartedness I sensed immediately. I was blessed and supported.
I had four massages with Sonje during my time in Trinity Beach. The presence of deep space, and of love, present each time. During that first massage, as her hands touched skin and dove into tissue, I released; let the tears flow from the stored grief and trauma, some of which I’d held in; frozen. Too painful to manage alone. No words. Just flow, release. Kindness and love. Generosity and space. Toward the end of the first massage, as part of the treatment movements, I was cradled, as a great Mother Spirit, perhaps the spirit of Aloha and Hawai’i itself. I felt deeply, deeply cared for. Seen and held.
After each massage, different things arose in the quietness and stillness, for days afterwards. Different emotions, thoughts and awarenesses that I’d suppressed, gently arose to be experienced, acknowledged, released to the flow. A healing process. A cleansing. Held in immense love, infinite kindness, great spaciousness. Grace.
I am deeply grateful to Sonje, for the opening of these experiences.
