In the recent lockdowns, Osteopathic Practitioners have been forced to shut down due to the ambiguity of whether Osteopathy is an essential service to its patients. We need your help to assist us in framing our profession as an important part of one’s healthcare and wellness. Our patients know how vital their treatments are to their body’s health, let’s make sure the government knows too!
Below, you’ll find a survey that will be used to show our legislature how many patients rely on Osteopathic care for their health in Ontario. Please take a few minutes to help us make a positive change. Thank you!

“Osteopathy is much more than a set of memorized techniques, it is a philosophy based on fundamental laws that govern the anatomy and physiology of the body.”

Classical Osteopathy is defined as a holistic, traditional, and drug-free manual medicine. Founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, it is widely considered as the first form of scientific-based manual therapy. Osteopathic treatments are gentle, hands-on and effective in treating many symptoms the body may be experiencing.
Osteopathic application is guided by palpation skills and Osteopathic assessment of joints, muscles, etc. The goal of the practitioner is to determine the underlying cause(s) of symptoms and to assist in restoring the natural healing capabilities of the body.
Osteopathic practitioners are trained to use their knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology. They are looking for the cause of your pain, rather than chasing the pain. The treatments are not time-based, they are based on what your body’s needs are at that time.
The aim is to strive for the most amount of balance in all areas of our lives. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but we do need to consider the big picture surrounding good health. Good health encompasses a healthy way of life; whether it is physical, emotional, spiritual, social, environmental, financial, nutritional, etc. All these aspects are an integral part of our human functionality, thus we cannot depend solely on “fixing” one of these and forgetting about the rest.
We’re taking extended measures to help keep everyone safe.
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has changed the status and definition of Osteopathic Manual Therapy. Due to this change, all Osteopathic Manual Practitioners in Ontario are to charge HST on all Osteopathic treatments. This change will take effect on OCTOBER 1, 2020 and will add HST (13%) to all treatment fees. For more information, please click here.
