MY APPROACH TO TREATMENT AS AN OSTEOPATHIC-MASSAGE THERAPIST
Many massage therapists learn various techniques developed by osteopaths. However, simply because you have learned and use a technique does not make the treatment osteopathic, nor make it to be what I understand as osteopathic-massage. When I treat I am not picking and choosing which technique to use or in what order. I work from the perspective of using the principles and aims that both massage and osteopathy share. Precisely because I have spent so much time learning technique and theory, learning the purpose and principles of massage and osteopathy, I can now leave behind any recipe approach. I no longer treat a condition with a text-book approach, nor do I follow some prescribed steps of any single technique. With each and every client, and within each treatment session, over a series of treatments, I create manipulations and approaches as I proceed. My only objective is to listen and respond to the needs of the tissue, to the client as they are right now.
This, I believe, is treating osteopathically. This is what I call osteopathic massage therapy.
I received my diploma from the Toronto Academy of Osteopathy and keep up to date with the latest health care information. Feel free to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube for health tips and trends.
On your first visit at the clinic, I will carefully analyze your posture, movement, physical and emotional symptoms, medical history and spiritual state. Using a gentle touch, osteopathic treatment effectively allows the body to realign and restore its natural state and function.

Osteopathic Treatment in Toronto
At Body & Mind Osteopathic Clinic in Toronto, we believe overall health is only achieved when you acknowledge and address the needs of the whole body. This is also the philosophy behind osteopathic medicine – the whole body must function together for optimal health. If one part of the body is compromised with an injury, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate for this, eventually leading to inflammation, pain, stiffness and other health conditions.
