Osteopathic Manual Therapist, B.Kin, DOMP
Ocean is an Osteopathic Manual Therapist who graduated from the Canadian School of Osteopathy, a 5 year program. She has also completed a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Calgary, and was a member of the U of C varsity wrestling team for four years. Her background in athletics and dealing with injuries has given her great insight into how important it is to support and care for your body to better enjoy your everyday life and activities.
Ocean has been passionate about treating people since a wrestling injury back in high school which spurred a drive for deeper knowledge into the human body. This led to her finding Osteopathy.
Osteopathy is a natural modality which aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance. To achieve this goal, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners rely on the quality and finesse of their palpation and work with the position, mobility, and quality of the tissues.
In treatments, Ocean uses cranial osteopathy, visceral manipulation, fascial release, and joint mobilization techniques. You can expect a full body assessment at each session, which guides Ocean to where the body needs work to help you feel your best. She enjoys treating infants to the elderly because we all need a little support through every stage of life.
During her down time, Ocean enjoys reading, spending time in nature, and learning about herbalism.
