My name is Sonja
I have lived and worked on the Monterey Peninsula for most of my life but now I live in Minneapolis,Minnesota. My first experience in the Health Care Industry started when my grandmother first opened a Residential Care Home in 1974. I helped her care for her elderly clients for over two decades until I decided to become a Health Care Practitioner myself.
My first coarse work was in 1992 when I became a Certified Massage Practitioner. I then completed a 2 year Pre-Med program from Monterey Peninsula College. When I finished a 4 year program at the Five Branches University in 2003, I received a Masterís Degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I was fortunate enough to study with Frank He, a student of Miriam Lee, who was a leading pioneer for Acupuncture in the United States, in the 1970's. My focus was and still is Sports Medicine and Pain Management.
In 2008 I began to work in the Cruise Line Industry as an On Board Acupuncturist for Steiner Trans ocean Ltd. One requirement to work onboard an Ocean liner as an Acupuncturist is to offer the Guests free seminars during their cruise.
Due to the popularity of the seminars, I have had the opportunity to treat thousands of individuals for many different reasons.
The primary concerns I treated were usually for acute or chronic pain. Although I did numerous treatments for Facial Rejuvenation and Weight Loss.
My number one favorite thing to do after all the travel is to swim in the ocean. My new goal in life is to get a Scuba Dive license. I am in love with life and realize the privileges I have been bestowed and as I live and grow I can only hope to share my gift with others.
Yared enjoyed the massage very much!
Talked about it all evening.
