Describe your role as an osteopath
My role as an osteopath is to bring back a quality of life that the patient thought had been lost. A return to health, to life.
What are your "top" most treated health concerns/goals in the past month
- Lower back pain
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Sinus flush/Lymphatic flush
- Stress Relief
Your most common or most favourite health concern and why?
The most common health concern I see in the office is lower back pain. However, my most favourite thing to treat is stress. I enjoy treating stress because it allows me to use counseling in addition to the hands-on treatment . It takes work to build enough rapport with a client for them to feel comfortable to be open with you. When they finally do feel credulous, the release of emotions is enough to rejuvenate not just the mind but the body as well!
What are 3 future aspirations?
- To narrow down what I love most about Manual Osteopathy, and specialize in that field.
- To own my own clinic and have a group of like-minded practitioners working along side me.
- To leave an impact on the community around me.
How has your education or past experiences contributed to your clinical skills?
My past education and work experience in health and fitness as a Personal Trainor has given me the joy in knowing what the human body is truly capable of. Learning that 60 year olds can move just as well as 20 year olds in the gym, and that despite major injuries, the body is capable of fantastic things. This has made me realize that I don’t want to just be an Osteopath that makes you feel better...I want to be an Osteopath that leaves you feeling that your body is able to do way more than you could ever imagine.
Are you accepting new patients?
Yes, I am. I will try my best to accommodate your schedule because your health and wellness is my priority.
