My great passion is bringing healing to people who have had illness, injury or pain. In the words of the founder of osteopathy himself, “anyone can find disease in a person”. It is my aim to find the health in a person. I have had first hand healing from an Osteopath myself and it was that healing that sparked the impetus for my own Osteopathic education. A great many people I see have had a myriad of tests, medical visits and therapies with no answers, or relief. I leave no stone unturned during my Osteopathic Structural Assessment and Diagnosis and direct my findings toward healing the whole person. I help patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors, return to health, strength, and feeling whole again.

I know that we are all unique individuals and so, no single approach is the right one for each of us. So I incorporate a range of modalities during your osteopathic treatments including myofascial, ligamentous, soft tissue release, visceral, cranio-sacral, and lymphatic.

My educational background includes Diploma of Osteopathy from the Southern Ontario College of Osteopathy, Graduate Certificate in advanced standing in Myofascial Therapy from the Freedom from Pain Institute. I am a Registered Nutritional Consultant with a specialisation in Orthomolecular Medicine. I am a member in good standing with the Ontario Federation of Osteopathic Professionals and the International Organisation of Nutritional Consultants. As well, I am a Certified Personal Trainer and MMA Conditioning Coach. Further, I have a certificate in Soft Tissue Release and Level C First Aid and CPR.

COVID-19 Update

 

During this unprecedented time, we have taken the decision to shut down for the safety of our staff and patients.

 

Our clinic will be closed for general operations until further notice.

 

All non-urgent patient appointments will be rescheduled at a later date.

 

We are here to care for patients in the following urgent circumstances:

 

1. Experiencing a sudden and debilitating change in functional abilities (understood as walking, standing, sitting, lifting, sleeping) or significant restrictions (experienced during bending/twisting, repetitive movement, pushing/pulling with right/left arm) as well as injury to head/neck/back and extremities.

 

2. Significant pain, understood as pain that is incapacitating for the patient and interferes with their ability to carry out normal functioning.

 

Do not come into the clinic or book an appointment if you are exhibiting flu symptoms or are in a higher risk category (e.g. recently traveled, been in contact with those that have recently traveled, been in contact with people exhibiting symptoms, etc.).

 

Please folks, carry on with good judgement, and compassion for one another!
