Osteopathy was created in the 19th century by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, MD and Surgeon. Dr Still’s goal was to create a drug free manual therapy able to relieve the patient's pain.

Osteopathic manipulative medicine also called Manual Osteopathy is a holistic hands-on approach to treating pain and dysfunction. It includes musculoskeletal manipulations, visceral and cranio-sacral techniques.

At Knead A Break, the first consultation includes a thorough health history, assessment, and treatment. Follow-up treatments can range from 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment plan set by your Osteopathic Manual Practitioner.

When treating children, the appointment is scheduled for one hour in order to give 30-40 min of treatment in the most relaxed conditions as possible.

In Canada, Manual Osteopathic practitioners held titles like D.O.M.P , D.O (M.P) or M(Ost). Manual Osteopathic practitioners in Ontario are registered with different associations. The Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioner (OAO) is the most recognized and require the highest quality of training to become a member. It is often one of the only associations recognized by insurance companies like Sunlife and Manulife, while Greenshield and Blue cross offer direct billing for Manual Osteopathy treatments, most of the companies require the patient to send them the receipt of the treatment in order to be reimbursed.

Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic approach to whole-body wellness. A Naturopathic Doctor takes into account the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a person when devising a treatment plan, after taking a thorough intake and physical exam. The goal of this process is to realign the body with its natural state of health.

Wherever possible, naturopathic treatment aims to allow the body to heal naturally. This concept of vis medicatrix naturae or “healing power of nature” is one of the central concepts of Naturopathic philosophy. To facilitate this process, Naturopaths work not only on symptom alleviation, but also address the cause of illness itself. If someone is experiencing chronic symptoms of poor digestive function, for example, it may be necessary to assess nutritional intake and immune function of that person. Once potential causes such as lifestyle, nutritional imbalance, immune dysfunction or toxicity have been addressed and ideally resolved, the body can more easily attain a state of health.


Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment that balances the body's Qi (Chi). Qi is a Traditional Chinese Medicine term, which describes the body's energy. By using acupuncture needles, the Qi is stimulated or suppressed in order to bring balance back to the body.
