What is Osteopathy? Osteopathy is a science of healing which places an emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body. It relies on manual contact for structural diagnosis and treatment. Osteopathy is a patient-centered form of health care rather than disease-centered.
Osteopathic practitioners utilize a wide variety of therapeutic manual techniques dictated by their understanding of osteopathic principles and the structural individuality of each client. Through manual manipulation, osteopathic practitioners can influence all areas of the body in order to optimize the body’s intrinsic self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms.

After having her own personal success through osteopathic treatment, Anna knew this was her path and wanted to share the benefits of osteopathy with her community.
Anna is a graduate from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, where she earned her Master of Practice Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Sciences (M.OMSc). She is a certified Osteopathic Manual Practitioner in Ontario, and a professional member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association (OOA).
Anna’s keen understanding of human anatomy, physiology and collective mechanics (how each part of the body is interrelated and affected), allows her to ensure that each patient receives a safe, effective and highly personalized treatment during each session – whether that be to treat an acute injury or a chronic condition.
During her 4 years in of dedicated studies, Anna completed more than 4000 hours of supervised classroom education and 1000 hours of supervised practical training in the student clinic. This dedicated focus, in addition to experience in her clinical practice, helps Anna to continually learn from her patients and evolve to be a better practitioner who delivers the best possible care.
In her personal time, Anna enjoys spending time outdoors – playing hockey, hiking and camping.
