Colleen Matthews, Osteopathic Manual Therapist – M.OMSc
Colleen has recently completed her four-year Masters in Practice of Osteopathic Manual Sciences (M.OMSc) at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy. She has over 4000 hours of hands-on training as well as an in-depth education in anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Before completing her master’s program, Colleen studied at both the college and university levels in Fitness & Health Promotion and Recreation & Leisure Studies (BRLS), respectively.
Colleen practices classical osteopathy, following traditional treatment principles as they were first established in the late 1800s by the founder of the profession, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. After completing a thorough assessment, Colleen will use a variety of gentle manual (hands-on) movements/positions to restore symmetry and motion in your body. The result is a body that is capable of healing itself because the structure (anatomy) has been restored, which in turn affects the way the body functions (physiology). Manual manipulations can involve all tissues of the body including skin, fascia, tendons, muscles, ligaments, bones, nerves, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and organs.
Colleen consults in English and treatments are covered by many insurance providers. She is a member of OSTCAN, an exemplary professional association that upholds the highest in professional standards for osteopathic manual practitioners across Canada.
