Osteopathy is a way of detecting and treating damaged parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. When the body is balanced it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living. Osteopathic Manual Therapy is a holistic science, based on a comprehensive system of diagnosis and treatment. It uses the interrelationship of anatomy and physiology, and respects the functioning of the entire human system.

It is a “Natural Medicine”, meaning nothing is added (medications or remedies) or subtracted (surgery) from the body. Instead, the osteopathic philosophy embraces the notion that the body is naturally able to heal itself. The practitioner of Traditional Osteopathy works with the body to enhance this natural ability to self-regulate and self-heal.

Traditional Osteopathy, as presented by the Canadian College of Osteopathy, is defined as: “A natural medicine which aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance. To achieve this goal the Osteopath relies on the quality and finesse of his/her palpation and works with the position, mobility and quality of the tissues.” ~ Philippe Druelle, DO.


Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing. It is a widely accepted and effective treatment for reducing stress, decreasing muscle pain and stiffness, and for aiding in rehabilitation and postural realignment.
Massage therapists use a variety of techniques that, along with prescribed client self care, help to facilitate improved health and well being.

Shiatsu is a natural therapy that can help relieve tension and harmonize bodily functions. During a treatment session, the therapist may use palms, thumbs, elbows or knees to apply comfortable, sustained pressure to the body. Oils are not used and lose comfortable clothing is worn during the treatment.
During a shiatsu treatment, the therapist applies pressure to the areas where the Qi (energy) is insufficient, or its flow is distorted or stagnated. When the right amount of holding pressure is applied the flow returns to normal, and the excess or blocked energy is dispersed.

In western terms, shiatsu calms the overactive sympathetic nervous system and promotes the healing, restful state of the parasympathetic nervous system. Deep relaxation and balance can be experienced, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process.


Reiki

Working as a support mechanism to the body, Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of Qi (life force energy) throughout the system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability. Through a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body, the certified Reiki practitioner allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client’s body th... Read More

Working as a support mechanism to the body, Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of Qi (life force energy) throughout the system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability.
Through a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body, the certified Reiki practitioner allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client’s body then draws off the amount of energy that is required. Reiki energy works in concert with all other forms of therapy and is a perfect compliment to other treatments.

Reiki Chakra Therapy is a unique healing session created by Sheri which combines the elements of Reiki, Chakra Balancing and talk therapy. During the healing sessions Reiki energy (spiritual healing energy) enters the energy body through the chakras bringing a high vibration of love and light to the person receiving the healing. Reiki is a gentle but powerful healing energy. Sounding which helps to release the energy block and crystals which emit a natural healing energy are used to help raise the vibration of the energy body.For furher information please contact Sheri directly at sheri@sherifogartyhealing.com

Kim Tanzer received her B.A. from Cornell University and her MSW from Carleton University.

Kim’s approach to psychotherapy involves helping clients recognize how their mind and body influence each other. A yoga teacher for 20 years and a mindfulness meditation teacher for 10 years, Kim understands that emotions reside in the body and can manifest physically.
Personal journeys are not always linear and can move in many directions: forwards, backwards, and laterally. Life is messy.

Stressors in life can trigger anxiety, depression, feelings of being overwhelmed, isolated and lonely. Relationships with ourselves and with others often suffer from our stresses.

In addition to helping clients navigate their thoughts and feelings, Kim encourages clients to tune into their bodies and recognize that being human is sometimes messy, whether it is a relationship that goes sideways, a job we take on that loses its meaning, or that life itself sometimes loses its lustre.
Kim strives to help her clients achieve balance and find peace in a chaotic world.

Pierre graduated from the IFOGA in Avignon, France.

Trained in structural (spine, joints), functional (fascia), visceral (digestive, respiratory organs), craniosacral (cranium cerebrospinal fluid), Jones (strain-counterstain muscle), Mitchell (joint with muscle), vascular (artery, vein, lymphatic), nerves manipulation (spinal cord, peripheral nerves, cranial nerves), GOT (General Osteopathic Treatment) and pediatric (baby) Osteopathic treatments.

He was selected as part of the medical team for the motorcycle and ATV rally race “Raid Passion Desert – Morocco” in 2014. Since 2017 he is a volunteer member of Osteopathy for Haiti and offers once a year osteopathic training for Medical Doctors and Physiotherapists at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Haiti.

His palpation and techniques are very precise. His accuracy on abdominal palpation (organs and blood vessels) have been tested by ultrasound by a professional sonographer.

Pierre believed in the recognition of osteopathy by scientific criteria (medical imaging) and he is currently co-leading a research on the effect of osteopathy in the venous system tested by echo-doppler. The result will be published later (research takes time…) but that already permit him to scientifically been tested again.

To remain at the leading edge of his profession he performs many continuing educations every year such as Human Dissection, Physiology and Osteopathic techniques.

Pierre applied Evolutionary Medicine in the Osteopathic Field. Evolution contains an inherent hierarchy and chronology of Form (structure and function as one whole) or hierarchic history of health (cf complexity theory). When this inherent and living hierarchy is not respected then the fundamental health and its health maintenance mechanisms will not be able to express to their full potential.

Pierre is not a medical doctor and he is not certified nor trained to diagnosed medical condition and prescribe medical treatment. In case of doubt always check first with your family doctor. They really save lives.

People seek osteopathic treatments for more than just joints and back pain, some of which includes: neuralgia (sciatica, carpal tunnel, outlet syndrome, pinched nerves, etc.), headaches, digestive trouble, perinatal, pediatric, etc.

Pierre is also convinced of the mind-body relationship. This will allow him to come up with the adequate treatment that will free you from pain, which has disabled you from optimizing your well-being.
