The word osteopathy originates from two Greek words, “osteone” which means structure and “pathos” which means pain. Osteopathy applies the knowledge of the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the body, to all diseases, disorders and dysfunctions.
Osteopathic practitioners study for years to develop very sensitive palpation skills. Many gentle tests and techniques are used to find and treat the root causes of dysfunction and not just chase the symptoms.
Osteopathy is a treatment philosophy which seeks to identify areas of the body that are restricted or constricted, then gently ease these restrictions so that normal function can resume.
Osteopathy is a natural medicine and science that treats the whole person. The goal of treatment is to relieve pain, improve mobility and restore health and vitality. A treatment plan is formulated by understanding the relationship between the structure of the body and how well it functions, and knowing the connections between all the tissues, fluids, organs and systems of the body.

What is Massage?
Registered Massage Therapy is regulated by the following acts:
- The Health Professions Act
- The Health Care Consent Act
- The Massage Therapy Act
- The College of Massage Therapists (in this case of Ontario)
All of these regulatory bodies have been created to protect the clients. Therefore, the most important standard in our practice is to ensure that the client is safe and secure at all times during treatment. Massage therapy consists primarily of hands- on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health. Massage therapy has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved, and physical dysfunction and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of massage therapy.

Jasmine’s Referral Network
When you become a patient of mine, I allow immediate access to my referral network, if needed. My referral network is a circle of individuals in my opinion that are the best in their field of knowledge. Service referrals range from Naturopaths, physiotherapist, pelvic specialized physio, pediatric physio and speech therapy services for infants and children. I also have referrals for lactation consultants, doulas, tongue-tie babies (Newman Clinic, Little Bird Dentistry, Milltown Dental, and Appleby Dental), holistic allergist, social workers, psychotherapists, Chinese medicine and even range meat and food products.
