About the Practitioner

Sophia Ramos, LMT

ABMP Certified Bodywork Therapist


Sophia Ramos is a massage therapist licensed in both New York and New Jersey, who wholeheartedly believes in the power and benefits of bodywork. To deliver the best possible service, she says, "I use an intuitive approach that often integrates portions of different modalities in order to provide you with a customized session based on your unique situation."


Sophia offers both mobile and in-office services in the New York City area, working with clients who range in age and express a variety of needs. While some make appointments with the goal of relaxation, others are looking to regain flexibility, strength or range of motion in certain areas of the body, like the legs. Regardless, Sophia teaches all clients that "being healthy is totally up to them." "Taking charge of their own health makes a big difference in how they live day to day," she adds.


At Boss Massage, Sophia's private practice, clients come first. "Managing your health efficiently and effectively is what makes you the boss," she says. "It involves taking control of your life and becoming an advocate for not only a healthy body but also a healthy mind and soul. Make time for yourself, and reap the benefits of a well-balanced body and a clear, focused mindset."

As a member of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), I pledge my commitment to the highest principles of the massage and bodywork profession as outlined here:

  1. Commitment to High-Quality Care
    I will serve the best interests of my clients at all times and provide the highest quality of bodywork and service possible. I recognize that the obligation for building and maintaining an effective, healthy, and safe therapeutic relationship with my clients is my responsibility.
  2. Commitment to Do No Harm
    I will conduct a thorough health history intake process for each client and evaluate the health history to rule out contraindications or determine appropriate session adaptations. If I see signs of, or suspect, an undiagnosed condition that massage may be inappropriate for, I will refer that client to a physician or other qualified health-care professional and delay the massage session until approval from the physician has been granted. I understand the importance of ethical touch and therapeutic intent and will conduct sessions with the sole objective of benefitting the client.
  3. Commitment to Honest Representation of Qualifications
    I will not work outside the commonly accepted scope of practice for massage therapists and bodywork professionals. I will adhere to my state's scope of practice guidelines (when applicable). I will only provide treatments and techniques for which I am fully trained and hold credible credentials. I will carefully evaluate the needs of each client and refer the client to another provider if the client requires work beyond my capabilities, or beyond the capacity of massage and bodywork. I will not use the trademarks and symbols associated with a particular system or group without authentic affiliation. I will acknowledge the limitations of massage and bodywork by refraining from exaggerating the benefits of massage therapy and related services throughout my marketing.
  4. Commitment to Uphold the Inherent Worth of All Individuals
    I will demonstrate compassion, respect, and tolerance for others. I will seek to decrease discrimination, misunderstandings, and prejudice. I understand there are situations when it is appropriate to decline service to a client because it is in the best interests of a client's health, or for my personal safety, but I will not refuse service to any client based on disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, physical build, or sexual orientation; religious, national, or political affiliation; social or economic status.

  5. Commitment to Respect Client Dignity and Basic Rights
    I will demonstrate my respect for the dignity and rights of all individuals by providing a clean, comfortable, and safe environment for sessions, using appropriate and skilled draping procedures, giving clients recourse in the event of dissatisfaction with treatment, and upholding the integrity of the therapeutic relationship.
  6. Commitment to Informed Consent
    I will recognize a client's right to determine what happens to his or her body. I understand that a client may suffer emotional and physical harm if a therapist fails to listen to the client and imposes his or her own beliefs on a situation. I will fully inform my clients of choices relating to their care, and disclose policies and limitations that may affect their care. I will not provide massage without obtaining a client's informed consent (or that of the guardian or advocate for the client) to the session plan.
  7. Commitment to Confidentiality
    I will keep client communication and information confidential and will not share client information without the client's written consent, within the limits of the law. I will ensure every effort is made to respect a client's right to privacy and provide an environment where personal health-related details cannot be overheard or seen by others.
  8. Commitment to Personal and Professional Boundaries
    I will refrain from and prevent behaviors that may be considered sexual in my massage practice and uphold the highest professional standards in order to desexualize massage. I will not date a client, engage in sexual intercourse with a client, or allow any level of sexual impropriety (behavior or language) from clients or myself. I understand that sexual impropriety may lead to sexual harassment charges, the loss of my massage credentials, lawsuits for personal damages, criminal charges, fines, attorney's fees, court costs, and jail time.
  9. Commitment to Honesty in Business
    I will know and follow good business practices with regard to record keeping, regulation compliance, and tax law. I will set fair fees and practice honesty throughout my marketing materials. I will not accept gifts, compensation, or other benefits intended to influence a decision related to a client. If I use the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals logo, I promise to do so appropriately to establish my credibility and market my practice.
  10. Commitment to Professionalism
    I will maintain clear and honest communication with clients and colleagues. I will not use recreational drugs or alcohol before or during massage sessions. I will project a professional image with respect to my behavior and personal appearance in keeping with the highest standards of the massage profession. I will not actively seek to take someone else's clients, disrespect a client or colleague, or willingly malign another therapist or other allied professional. I will actively strive to positively promote the massage and bodywork profession by committing to self-development and continually building my professional skills.



Helping people feel better is extremely rewarding to me.  This is one of the many reasons why I love being a massage therapist.
