Sonal is a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner in Houston Heights. She is passionate about helping people heal naturally through Eastern medicine, diet and lifestyle adjustments. She utilizes acupuncture, herbs, nutrition and meditation to treat the root of the problem and support the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
After working as a respiratory therapist for more than eight years and witnessing patients struggle with the side effects of pharmaceuticals and lack of preventative education, she decided to switch her career path to Chinese medicine. Through her clinical experience in both fields, Sonal has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients and believes that integrative medicine is essential for optimal health.
Sonal listens to the needs of every patient and provides a sense of trust and compassion. She believes in creating a healing space where patients feel safe to openly discuss what is troubling them, which is one of the most important steps to healing. It is in this space she feels fortunate to meet different people, some of which have made an influence on her own life path.
Outside of the clinic, Sonal enjoys spending time with her family and friends, trying new recipes, meditation, and reading mystery and sci-fi novels.
