About the event

I am currently enrolled as a full-time Manual Osteopathic Therapist student at the Manual Osteopathic College of Canada.  I am reaching out to offer donation-based bookings to expand my hands-on practical experience as a MOT student.

Have You heard of Manual Osteopathy?

Manual Osteopathy is a form of hands-on therapy that has the primary focus to restore Structure and Functioning of the system, gently and holistically. Manual Osteopathic treatments eliminate pain and dis-Ease through activating the parasympathetic nervous system and by addressing the root cause of the imbalance, injury or illness.

A Manual Osteopathic Practitioner is trained in four main types of hands-on Osteopathic sub-disciplines:

  • Osteoarticular Adjustments,
  • Fascial release,
  • Cranial-Sacral techniques and,
  • Visceral Manipulation.

Osteoarticular Adjustments and Fascial Release may sound familiar as they are utilized in professions such as Physiotherapy and Chiropractic commonly known as Manual Therapy.

Visceral Manipulation is applied to assess and treat the viscera (organs), their position, suspension system and fascia from which they directly attach to the musculoskeletal system.  Imbalances in the viscera and its connective tissue can be directly related to postural imbalances and can impact many systems such as the musculoskeletal, nervous, vascular, respiratory, endocrine and digestive systems.

The Cranial-Sacral system consists of the bones of the head and spinal cord; as well as, the membranes and fluid that surround and support the brain and spinal cord.  Dysfunction of any part of this system could have local effects such as head, jaw and neck aches, migraines or pain along the spine from the neck to the low back.  We also see nervous system dysregulation and changes in mood and the capacity to cope with stressors; as well as, nerve impingement or end organ dysfunction such as digestive, respiratory or pelvic floor complaints

Manual Osteopathic treatment is a non-invasive, very gentle, hands-on practice that complements my extensive training as a Registered Nurse, Integrative Somatic Trauma Practitioner and Holistic Nurse Coach.  Each session will be consent based and invitational; there will be open communication and education between myself and the client to ensure we co-create a safe and healing session.

**Currently, I am offering Manual Osteopathic assessments & treatments focused on generalized corrections of the Lower Limb structures (bones, joints, ligaments, fascia etc)—lumbar, SI joint, sacral, coccyx.  As I advance through the program, I will be able to offer more variety of hands-on techniques.  If you are curious about Manual Osteopathic treatments and how they could benefit you along your healing journey, please reach out for a free Discovery Call to see how we could work together**

DATES: to be booked on individual basis

TIME: 60-min max; if there is time at the end of your session, there will be an integrative rest phase using crystal singing bowls
