Manual Osteopathy

Patients can expect a thorough evaluation to assess symptoms and create a treatment plan to efficiently move you closer to resolution of ailments using advanced osteopathic hands-on techniques.

 

Our in-person appointments use more of an anatomic approach, releasing biomechanical strains and restoring balance to your system. They are also helpful in the resolution of symptoms associated with fatigue, depression, and anxiety.

Virtual Visits

Arrange osteopathic telehealth (live interactive video) appointments from the comfort of your home using your phone, tablet, or computer on our secure, encrypted platform. We will discuss your goals for the session, and use mindfulness based osteopathic approaches to release the symptoms of stress and or trauma in the body. 

Virtual visits are also perfect for people who prefer to receive physically-distanced treatments, or those who cannot physically attend in-person appointments, and those who don't live in the Ottawa region.
