Benjamin Durie, DOMP
My goal with everyone I work with is to get to the root of the issue and to make an organized plan to facilitate recovery and allow health to be expressed fully. How does this play out? By listening to your history, goals and expectations, by using a skilled and thorough assessment protocol, and by working holistically to encourage a return to balance. This includes identifying all of the factors that may be impeding your full expression of health.
WHAT SORT OF CASES DO I SEE?
People dealing with back or joint pain, digestive issues, sleep disorders, headaches and often people who are simply interested in growing older healthier (preventative care works!). I see people of all ages and all activity levels from newborns to older folk, and from professional dancers to seawall walkers.
WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a safe and effective patient-centred manual therapy that works in combination with the inherent homeostatic mechanisms in the body to help restore balance and optimal health. It not only addresses the container (bones, muscles, fascia), but also explores the contents (organs, nerves, blood vessels) to identify restrictions not only in the mechanics of the body but also in the body’s physiology. Using a gentle, hands-on approach, the Osteopathic Practitioner supports the patient’s ability to improve mobility and expression of health.

OSTEOPATHY CAN ADDRESS CONCERNS RELATED, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
• Chronic pain

• Maternal and newborn health
*It is recommended that new patients book two appointments within two weeks as wait times may interfere with an appropriate follow-up schedule. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to communicate with me directly.
Looking forward to working with you,
