What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic and manual approach to healthcare that recognizes the body’s ability to heal itself. When illness or pain occurs, it is often due to obstructions that prevent the body’s healing elements from doing their job effectively. These obstructions can manifest as mal-alignments in the bones, musculoskeletal, fascia, or ligamentous structures, which can impede the flow of nerves, blood, and lymphatics. Osteopathic practitioners assess and treat the body as a whole, looking for and treating the cause rather than just the effect.

Osteopathic practitioners like Mohammed use a variety of principle-based manual techniques to reduce or remove these restrictions, thereby restoring the body’s normal physiological function. This, in turn, allows the body to initiate the healing process naturally. Osteopathy is effective for all ages! Osteopathic practitioners are trained to palpate (assess) your physical structures through your clothing. Wearing loose or non-restrictive clothing is helpful so that you have full range of motion.

Mohammed holds a Master in Practice of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (M. OMSc.) from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, where he was trained, with 4.5 years of Osteopathic education, to uphold the classical principles-based approach to osteopathy envisioned by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still.

With a background in Kinesiology and an Honours Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo, Mohammed has a comprehensive understanding of human movement and its impact on overall health and well-being.  Mohammed had the privilege of being taught by world-renowned professors such as Dr. Stu McGill.

With over 8 years of education, this has allowed Mohammed to cultivate a comprehensive and holistic approach to healthcare that aligns with the values and principles of osteopathy.

Mohammed is committed to continuous learning and refining his skills to better serve his patients.

He looks forward to the positive impact he will make on the lives of those seeking relief from pain and a path to improved health!
