• Back & Neck Pain • Clinical Pilates • Chronic Pain
Sonya’s early passion for anatomy and the biomechanics of the body has lead her through a career working alongside GPs, physiotherapists, psychologists, podiatrists, pilates/yoga/barre instructors and personal trainers. Having worked both in Melbourne and Adelaide she loves treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions from work related strains, spinal pain to gym injuries. Since returning to Melbourne in 2014 an interest in women’s heath, pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain issues has seen Sonya reach out for more understanding in this complex area. Travelling to the US to complete studies in pelvic floor rehabilitation, working at Inform Physiotherapy (Women’s and Men’s Health) in Melbourne and studying Acupuncture at RMIT has solidified her passion in this field and she never stops learning. Sonya has an understanding, supportive and practical approach to her treatment. A firm believer that everyone is different, and she tailors her plan for each and every individual. Sonya is registered health practitioner with AHPRA and a member of the Australian Osteopathic Association. Sonya loves her food, a good hike in the bush, and camping under the stars. Oh, and her spirit animal is a wombat.
