Classical Osteopathy was first discovered and practiced, by Dr. A.T. Still, an American doctor in the midwest in the late 1800's. It was the only profession at the time treating the root cause of the disease and for the most part not using any drugs or pharmaceuticals. Dr. Still believed that nature was our best medicine and that the body had everything it needed to heal, but that sometimes it needed a little help.
My love of osteopathy started at the end of my competitive rowing years. I played many sports and asked a lot from my body both physically and mentally. Eventually my digestive issues led me to learn more about holistic ways of applying nutrition and supplements to my life. From here I realized my real passion is in manual therapy; helping people resolve physical challenges as well as physiological. From the time I received my own first osteopathic treatment, I was hooked! I immediately enrolled in the CAO and am now able to bring my knowledge of the human body to the public in the most meaningful way. I will forever be fascinated with the complicated beauty and precision that is the human body, and how it is so very capable of healing with just a little bit of extra care. Osteopathy is a holistic profession, and we help people in a gentle, manageable way that is arguably best experienced than described.
