Classical Osteopathy is a wonderful option for people of all ages and abilities. Treatments consist of manual adjustments that are localized and specific and focused on relieving pressures and restrictions. The practice is based on an extensive understanding of anatomy and physiology and is anchored by four fundamental principles:
How does osteopathy work? Imagine tying a string around your finger. After only a short while, the string begins to affect nerve supply, blood supply and general circulation. If you left that string on for a long period of time, your finger would stop receiving the vital circulation it needs to thrive and the tissue would eventually break down and die.
Osteopathy is all about getting rid of the “strings” in your body. We look to balance restrictions and asymmetries so that every tissue, everywhere, has exactly what it needs to the healthiest it can be.
Initial assessments include a health history intake and a physical assessment, followed by treatment, and are usually about 50 minutes in length. Subsequent treatments are approximately 25 minutes in length. You are not required to undress for Osteopathic sessions, though it is recommended you wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing, such as yoga pants/shorts and a tank top/t-shirt/sports bra.
Everyone loves a great massage: it’s a safe and effective way to relieve stress and anxiety as well as manage many different medical conditions and injuries, including back and neck pain, headaches, constipation, and discomfort during pregnancy.
But it’s not always easy to find a great therapist.
Our Registered Massage Therapists have studied in some of the most intensive programs in the world, completing over 2200 hours of hands-on post-secondary education, and excel in many areas, including deep tissue massage, pregnancy massage, relaxation and stress management, and myo-fascial release. They continue to update their training through ongoing professional development workshops, courses and other training.
Beyond the top quality of our therapists, there’s a lot more that sets massage at Full Circle Health Network apart. Our tables are the most comfortable and solid tables in town (trust us, you won’t want to leave), our space is warm and inviting, and getting here is easy: we have fast online booking, extended hours, and ample free parking.
A few things to know, if you’ve never had a massage: all massage therapists have unique treatment styles and specialties, though most appointments will follow a similar structure. If at any time you’d like to adjust the pressure or have any questions about the treatment, please speak up – everyone’s body is unique.

You’ve likely heard about the tiny needles – but what exactly is Acupuncture, and how does it work?
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine based upon the regulation of energy flow (Qi). Acupuncture point locations are associated with many different nerves, blood vessels and neuromuscular attachments that communicate to the central nervous system. The needles stimulate the nervous system, unblocking affected “meridians” which in turn helps alleviate pain and treat various physical, mental and emotional conditions.
During Acupuncture sessions, practitioners place tiny filament “needles” in specific locations according to individual diagnoses. Sometimes, specific herbs are also prescribed. The needles rarely cause discomfort to the patient, and many people cannot feel them at all.
Although Traditional Chinese Medicine can be traced back 2500 years, it is now commonly practiced and endorsed in the west, and the World Health Organization has listed many conditions that Acupuncture can successfully treat, including low back pain, sciatica, headaches, dental pain, morning sickness, and depression – to name a few.
“You don’t have to be at your worst to reach out for help.”
Counselling, sometimes referred to as therapy or psychotherapy, is a collaborative process aimed at helping break the patterns that prevent individuals from making healthy decisions and living the life they want. In addition to regular counselling sessions, we also offer Counselling for children and families, as well as Prepare-Enrich based programs through Enrich Canada.
Counselling can help individuals experiencing a range of challenges, including stress, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, physical and sexual abuse, self-esteem concerns, anger management, parenting/co-parenting concerns, and separation and divorce.
The process is tailored to the issues you face and the results you wish to achieve. Together with your Counsellor, you will establish goals for your sessions and determine the steps you can take to make necessary changes. Your Counsellor will be someone who listens attentively, gives you appropriate feedback, supports you and, above all, empowers you to change your tomorrow.

Tana Shepherd has completed her Masters in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton, Ontario. Before finding Osteopathy, Tana sought the opportunity to gain laboratory research experience during her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences at McMaster University where she graduated with Honours and on the Dean’s list.
Tana has volunteered in Central America several times, working within small communities to deliver shelter, education, and medical resources, developing a love for the people of Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. It was during one of these trips that Tana realized the need for a natural and sustainable way to provide healthcare to those in rural areas; her love for osteopathy was born as she discovered the only tools she needed to meet that goal of helping her global community - her hands.
Tana is overwhelmingly grateful for her osteopathic education and feels privileged to have learned from her instructors at the CAO. Her education is based upon learning the principles of patient-centered osteopathic care, which means Tana is constantly thinking through the anatomy and physiology of each individual in order to tailor her treatments based on what her patients need. She loves being able to inspire and empower patients to take their health back into their own hands and loves sharing her awe of the body’s natural ability to heal itself with those around her.
Tana maintains her professional practice in Ottawa, Ontario but enjoys travelling abroad to spread Osteopathy to where it is needed most.
