Osteopathic Manual Practitioners

Hi, I'm Stephanie, an osteopathic manual practitioner (OMP) with a focus on providing preventative, maintenance, corrective, and palliative osteopathic care. In addition, I also offer a very integrated and unique service that provides both physical manipulations as well as guidance in stability training regimes.
I fell in love with Osteopathy while I was in my final year of my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph (2014). It's a rather odd story because it really felt like the universe just aligned for me at that point in my life. Even in my final year of human kinetics I really wasn't sure what career path I wanted to take. Physiotherapy, chiropractic and kinesiology were all options I had been considering, but none of them really felt right for me.
It wasn't until I met an osteopathic student in a spin class at the local YMCA that I even knew Osteopathy existed! The student had overheard me lamenting over not knowing what path to take and how much I was struggling to make a decision. She joined in on the conversation and filled me in on the masters program that she was attending in Hamilton. It sounded really amazing but I skeptical, so I signed up to sit in on a class and see what it was all about.
The day that I visited was the day that I knew it was what I wanted to pursue. The philosophy behind the care really spoke volumes to me and I knew right then and there that this was it. I immediately booked my interview and began my application process. 4 years later (2018) I graduated and opened Move Free!
