Natalie Pateman spent all of her childhood and teenage life in a little village in Germany, where she spent most of her time outdoors playing sports and riding horses. Her first introduction to Osteopathy came about during high school, where she spent a week observing an Osteopath for both horses and humans as part of a work experience assignment. Fascinated by the skill of the osteopath and the results in the patients of both species, she decided to move to London (UK) to study these skills. She completed a 4 year full time program at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM), graduating with her diploma in 2008. Since then she has also completed her Equine Diploma of Osteopathy. London proved to be too much city and her need for adventure finally led her to Calgary.
In the last few years, she has focused her continuous education on Visceral Manipulation through the Barral Institute, which has given her a deeper understanding of the connection between the organs and musculoskeletal system as well as the emotional connection to physical symptoms. She enjoys her work focusing on helping people feel better, especially those suffering from back or neck pain, headaches, digestive problems, stress and/or anxiety. With gentle hands-on techniques, breathing and exercise advice, she provides a holistic approach to your body.
She has joined the team on a part-time basis as she is currently also building her practice in Cochrane.
