Manual Osteopathic Therapy (MOT)
Manual Osteopathic Therapy uses hands-on skills for investigation and treatment of structural and functional dysfunctions to restore balance to the body. Osteopathic techniques include Craniosacral, Visceral, Fascial, Manual Lymphatic Therapy, and Muscle Energy Techniques.
Manual Osteopathic Therapists take a holistic approach with thorough assessment of many body systems to determine the best plan to facilitate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Treatments are typically done in different positions such as sitting, lying face up, face down, or side lying using supports when needed. Clients must wear plain stretchy clothing and/or shorts and a tank top so that they can be easily assessed and treated in different positions.
Imbalances found are gently treated with techniques that engage the dysfunctional tissue until function is normalized and alignment restored. Joints are mobilized by muscle-resisted techniques, soft-tissue is restored to healthier states. Fluids are released from congested areas and gently flushed in the direction of drainage. Changes are often felt immediately or shortly after the treatment. Manual osteopathic therapy techniques have been known to completely resolve chronic symptoms in patients who have sought help everywhere else.
The Manual Osteopathic College of Canada is recognized by the World Health Organization and compliant with the Type II training benchmarks.
