Sonja van Kommer


BSc (hons) Ost, GOsC Registered, TBM practitioner, SCIO Practitioner.

Sonja qualified from the European School of Osteopathy 1999, before setting up practice in Spain 2002.

She treats using Structural and Cranial Osteopathy.


She also became interested in energetic medicine whilst studying TBM (Total Body Modification) in Europe, a form of applied kinesiology. This led her to pursue a more reliable way to test and assess the human body.


By using the latest electro-dermal computerised testing device she found a way to assess the energetic imbalances in your body with more depth and precision.


Mixing this know how with her post-graduate courses in applied nutrition, her approach relies on improving your inner health to make you feel better.


This technology used in the SCIO device has given Sonja the ability to provide a greater insight into your health problems and formulate a treatment plan to help de-stress and re-balance your body to achieve better results in even the most complex cases.


Sonja is a mother of 3 and when she has time she enjoys cycling, walking and all the fun things in life.
