Believe it or not, I was introduced to Osteopathy through an ad. By this time, I had already been a dancer and yoga instructor for several years. I eventually began working as a chiropractic assistant and saw the true power physical touch can have.
Realizing this, and feeling inspired by what I knew about the human body, I felt compelled to follow a path aligned with my values. I quickly discovered hands-on work is what truly lights me up. And as I continued to immerse myself in the world of Osteopathy, I was immediately drawn to the ability to heal people with my hands.
I still remember my first experience as a patient of Osteopathy, and getting on the table myself. This single appointment gave me everything I needed, on all levels. I felt like my needs were being heard, and like I was being considered as a whole person. It was then that it became my passion and my purpose to bring this same experience to all of my patients.
I graduated from the National Academy of Osteopathy in 2015, and worked between Dublin and London as a Manual Osteopath before I returned home to Ontario. In addition to Manual Osteopathy, I am also fully certified in practicing Rapid Neuro Fascial Reset, Strain and Counterstrain Techniques, and Cupping.
My favourite part of being a Manual Osteopath is seeing the progress my patients make. What fills my cup is being able to see my clients get back to doing everyday activities they couldn’t do when they first walked through my door. The best part of my day is the opportunity to connect with my patients and celebrate their wins with them as they reach their goals.
