We are excited to announce that Alison Ritchie has completed the five years of clinic study, as well as her thesis, at the Canadian School of Osteopathy and is now an Osteopathic Practitioner. She will now be billing her services under Osteopathy.
All aspects of the body must work together to maintain health and the osteopathic approach is able to address the person as a whole to improve not only structure and therefore function but overall health and wellbeing.
Osteopathic Practitioners support the body’s ability to restore and maintain health by using skilled palpation and manual techniques to influence muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, circulation and internal organs.
The World Health Organization, in its 2010 report on Osteopathy, recognized osteopathy as distinct from other healthcare professions that utilize manual techniques, such as physiotherapy and chiropractic, despite some overlap in the techniques and interventions employed.”
