Continuum strives to help clients reach their maximal health through Osteopathic treatment. Osteopathy aims to realign the body through biomechanical and visceral mobilizations. Additionally, practitioners use fascial, and cranial-sacral techniques to incorporate all aspects of the body to treat dysfunction. This whole body, whole system approach is a fundamental base of Osteopathy. The purpose is to restore your body’s ability to heal itself by ensuring all systems are working as efficiently as they can. Osteopathic Manual Therapists (D.O.M.P.’s) have received training in manual osteopathic practice, however, they are not medical doctors. Treatments involve only manual therapies.
About Sonia Sharma

Prior to beginning her Osteopathy education journey, Sonia was a registered massage therapist and graduated from massage therapy college in 2006. After many years of gaining experience in this field, her love of learning anatomy and physiology led her to Osteopathy.
Sonia graduated from a 5-year Osteopathy program in 2019 and has dedicated her practice to Osteopathic Manual Therapy ever since.
Outside of the clinic, Sonia spends her time caring for and fostering elderly dogs. You may just meet a furry friend at your next appointment!
Currently, Osteopathic manual therapy in Manitoba is an unregulated profession, therefore the use of the title does not communicate a consistent standard of training. This makes it important to choose an Osteopathic Manual Therapist who belongs to an association which requires a high standard of training and continuing education. At Continuum, our Osteopathic Manual Therapists are required to attend a 5-year in-person program which includes research, in-class lectures, and extensive hands-on supervised clinical practice.
Post-graduation, they are also required to complete a number of continuing education hours every year. Our Osteopathic Manual Therapists are members of both the Manitoba Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists (MAOMT) and also affiliate members of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (OAO).
