Update Regarding Business Operations due to Coronavirus COVID-19
Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health (via Directive #2) has permitted various Paramedical services, including Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs), to gradually restart therapy services.
Unfortunately Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) is not included and the Ontario Osteopathic Association (OOA) has confirmed we are not to restart.
Your therapist will be in contact with you when they are ready to begin treatments. If you would like to know how things have changed please see our Covid-19 Safety Measures page.
If you are a new patient wishing to obtain treatment, please call the office at 519-772-1188 and we will contact you once it is safe to book a treatment.
Stay healthy and we look forward to helping you when we are able!
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a drugless therapy administered by Osteopathic Manual Therapists (OMT’s).
OMT’s believe that when the body’s physical structure is in balance it is capable of using its own internal pharmacy for natural healing.
They work to bring back the balance of the physical structure to allow the body’s internal physiology to self-heal and regulate.
How is Osteopathy different?
Where many health care professionals define and treat pain / disease symptoms without considering the body as a whole, Osteopathic Manual Therapists see the body as an integrated unit.
Using their understanding of the interrelationship between anatomy and physiology they diagnose to determine the root cause of pain / disease and treat that cause as well as its resulting compensations.
This approach creates long term benefits as well as provides short term relief.
How can Osteopathy help you?
OMT’s use their understanding of the connections between anatomy and physiology to assess and treat the cause of disease / dysfunction. Osteopathic Manual Therapy treatments involve gentle manipulations of the body to restore balance to the anatomy.
Many patients report that after an Osteopathic treatment they experience better sleep, better digestive function, better mobility, and simply feeling good.
