Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)
Certified in CranioSacral Therapy (CST-T)



Sonja was two years into her studies at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, in her home town of Münster, Germany, when she decided that she wanted to approach life differently - less from her head, and more from her heart. She felt a budding passion for helping people to heal and enjoy life in a healthier and happier way. Sonja followed her intuition and enrolled in an intensive 3-year training program to become a physical therapist. In 1993, Sonja completed her training and became a certified physical therapist.

For the next eleven years, Sonja worked throughout Berlin, Munich, and Cologne, gaining clinical experience in a variety of settings, including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, home healthcare, and private practice.  She specialized in internal medicine, post-surgery care, intensive care, and neurological rehabilitation.

In 2004, Sonja moved to California where she became a certified massage therapist, and established a private practice specializing in Manual Lymph Drainage/Complete Decongestive Therapy in Santa Cruz, CA. 

In 2009, she had the unexpected good fortune of experiencing the benefits of osteopathic and CranioSacral Therapy sessions, and became intrigued by this distinctive approach to well-being.  By 2010, she was studying CranioSacral Therapy in-depth, and by 2013, she completed her Advanced training in CranioSacral Therapy, and became a Certified CranioSacral Therapist.

Sonja has completed CS1, CS2, SER1, SER2, CST Advanced I, CranioSacral Dissection, CASR 2x, and CranioSacral for the Second Brain.
