I’m a French-trained Osteopathic therapist who works in Calgary at Healthy By Nature. While I use many different techniques in treating patients, I draw heavily from Biodynamic Osteopathy to solve complex cases, to help babies, and to get a lot of the people who come to see me back up and on their feet, feeling better as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Now, with a flat tire, the structure is damaged and the function becomes impaired: it is a pretty obvious diagnosis, no need to call the mechanics for this. Now let’s say the function of your tire is altered: your wheel doesn’t turn anymore because…

Moreover, osteopathy is holistic, which means we consider you–the whole of you–to be a piece of the puzzle in getting you healthy again. What is Happiness? It can be hard to define, we usually know it feels good, and we want more of it! It’s a sense of deep satisfaction, well being, optimism, and meaningfulness in life. Through new research,…
