Kaili's  Approach to Treatment 

  • Kaili strives to identify the root cause of dysfunction within your body, understanding that each person is unique and requires individual treatment considerations.  She acknowledges the importance of patient education and empowerment as part of the healing process.

  • The process begins with a review of your health history and goals. You have the opportunity to share you story and give insight into what has brought you to this moment, as well as ask any questions you may have.

  • This is followed by a full body assessment in order to understand how your body functions as a whole and to identify areas of restriction. 

  • A variety of osteopathic manual therapy techniques are employed in order to provide  you with the care needed to help restore function and aid your body's ability to heal.  Manual osteopathic techniques utilized include soft tissue manipulation, osteopathic articular techniques (gentle and specific joint mobilization), craniosacral techniques and visceral manipulation.

  • Clients are often given supplementary education and exercises to perform at home in order for them to become active and engaged throughout the process.  This creates a dynamic where individuals become invested in their own healing, reaching their wellness goals through restoring and maintaining a connection with their physical bodies. 

  • The treatment is offered in a space that is safe and peaceful in order to promote a  calm nervous system. This allows for reconnection of body and mind, which is necessary for healing to occur.

Approach to Therapy
Therapy Sessions

Osteopathy is a client-centred discipline that is based on understanding the relationship between structure and function in order to enhance the body’s inherent ability to heal. It relies on skilled manual therapeutic techniques to assess and treat the client, guiding the natural self-healing properties of the human body. 
Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners

 

OSTEOPATHIC MANUAL PRACTITIONERS recognize a person as an integrated whole. When all of the body’s components are in balance, a person is complete and in total health. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners work to maintain, improve and restore the normal physiological function of interrelated body structures and systems, enhancing the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

      - Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners

The PHILOSOPHY OF OSTEOPATHY is based on four basic principles:

  • Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions.

  • The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular and neurological – must be preserved and maintained.

  • The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems don’t work independently - they work in harmony.

  • When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.

WHAT TYPES OF TECHNIQUES are used in osteopathy?

Osteopathy employs a variety of techniques and modalities including: 

  • SOFT TISSUE MANIPULATION as a method of evaluating and treating soft tissues to ease restriction, alleviate discomfort and improve the natural flow of fluids in the body.

  • OSTEOPATHIC ARTICULAR TECHNIQUE is a gentle form of joint mobilization used to improve mobility, reduce muscle spasm and alleviate discomfort.

  • CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY is an incredibly gentle and unique form of care to assess and treat the mobility of the skull bones and their contents, as well as the spine, sacrum and other parts of the body that are connected within the craniosacral system. The intent is to affect the central nervous system and physiology by improving the mobility and motility of these structures in order to optimize the flow of cerebral spinal fluid and neurovascular impulses to the autonomic centres of the body.

  • VISCERAL MANIPULATION is used to effectively treat organs and viscera of the body. Using gentle manipulation, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners mobilize the structures and their surrounding connective tissue to restore proper movement, improving motility of organs, and the flow of fluids to and from the organs in order to optimize their function, contributing to the overall health of the individual.
