Suneela Ahuja

Suneela ahuja D.M.O received her Bachelors in Dentistry. She started working with Calgary pain management center since 2015. Suneela thoroughly enjoyed the variety of classes and volunteer programs that she participated in during her degree. Passionate about holistic healthcare, Suneela completed a post-graduate program at the National Manual Osteopathic College and received her Diploma of Manual Osteopathy. There she learnt techniques for structural adjustments that use the client’s muscular strength to facilitate the correction. Her structural techniques use a method of muscular contraction, followed by relaxation to move the skeletal system into proper alignment. Suneela loves the complexities of the human body and has enjoyed learning different techniques that focus on solving the problem at hand from multiple perspectives. For example, she will often use myofascial release techniques, visceral as well as craniosacral therapy modalities to relieve a wide range of conditions. As a Manual Osteopath, Suneela considers and treats each condition from a whole body perspective. This technique has been very beneficial to clients with low back pain, concussions, jaw dysfunction and headaches, to name a few. When she has free time, suneela loves to listen music, travel and explore the outdoors with her family or have a chai tea latte with her friends.
