Manual Osteopathic Therapy utilizes thorough assessment protocols with manual therapy techniques to bring balance back to the body.
Searching for the root cause of the body's pain and/or dysfunction is always the priority. This can be achieved by looking at both the body's structure and its function.
Osteopathic Practitioners treat a wide variety of health conditions through the many systems of the body, including but not limited to musculoskeletal pain, vascular imbalances, nerve pain and dysfunction, and the visceral (organ) systems.
Much like manual therapy, cupping helps to decrease pain. Your nervous system suppresses pain receptors when a stimulus (the cups) are applied to the area.
The negative pressure (suction) applied to the body manipulates soft tissue to create distinct changes in skin, fat, fascia, and muscle trajectories that help in tissue health, range of motion, pain and movement of fluids within the body.
I have been providing Therapy for the past six years. My interest in the human body and its potential can be dated back as early as highschool. I performed really well in the areas of biology & PE, and loved playing competitive sports. It was then that I started thinking about furthering my education to provide a service that was grounded in health and well-being.
While working as a massage therapist in Alberta for a year, it became very clear that I wanted to learn more about the structure and function of the human body. After considering options to further my education and knowledge base, I enrolled in the Manual Osteopathy Diploma Program. What this education has given me, is a broader perspective of the human body. It has helped to further assist in the uncovering of root problems of conditions and dysfunction, all-the-while allowing me to serve my community in a larger capacity.
