After graduating from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science (major in Human Kinetics, minor in Nutritional & Nutraceutical Sciences), Sonam developed a passion for healthcare and strived to pursue a career where she could provide services to others in order to achieve their optimal wellness. When she discovered Eastern Medicine, she was captivated by the theories and practices that have been used for thousands of years. With the idea in mind to bring her previous background in health science together with this type of holistic medicine, she completed a Diploma in Acupuncture & Moxibustion, as well as a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Sonam believes in an East-meets-West approach, integrating ideas from both to encompass the best possible healthcare system.
“One of the many things that makes Acupuncture and TCM so special, is that each treatment is individualized for the patient. Not one person is the exact same as another, so the way they are treated shouldn’t be the exact same either. We take an in-depth look at what is going on in an individual, and then custom-make their treatment plan. Each case is like solving a new puzzle.”
Sonam is a Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). Using acupuncture, herbal medicine, & nutritional counselling, she treats a wide range of conditions including musculoskeletal pain, digestive issues, insomnia, stress/anxiety, and has a special interest in treating women’s health & fertility problems. Sonam has been a part of the Pacific Wellness team for a number of years now, and welcomes new patients and familiar faces alike.
