It is a form of manual therapy that aims to help anyone with an injury or who is in pain. Osteoarticular techniques, facial releases, craniosacral therapy and visceral releases are used to gently adjust muscles, soft tissues, bones, joint capsules and internal organs into proper alignment. When the body is balanced it is able to function properly and quickly heal itself. All treatments are done with the client fully clothed and the intensity can be adjusted to the client's current capabilities.
JILL DEAN, RMO
Graduated with a bachelor of Health Science from the University of New Brunswick in 2009. She went on to study General Radiography, Mammography and Computed Tomography (CT); fields she worked in for seven years. It was a desire to move from a diagnostic field into a healing field that prompted her to enroll in the post graduate Osteopathic program at the National Manual Osteopathic College. She graduated in June 2017 and is now a member in good standing of the National Manual Osteopathic Society.
Massage Therapy involves working and acting on the body with pressure. Techniques and pressure are commonly applied using hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or sometimes a device. The purpose of massage is generally promoted as treatment for stress or pain release.
