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:

➊  the body is a complete unit (mind, body, spirit)
➋  the body is self-healing and self-regulating
➌  the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) are interrelated on all levels
➍  rational treatment is based on these 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.

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner and Clinic Owner

Speciality: Pre- and Post-Natal

About Geneviève

Geneviève is continually amazed by the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It’s that sense of excitement that has driven her long and varied career in natural healthcare – and that still drives her in her work as a Manual Osteopathic Practitioner and Clinic Owner at Full Circle Health Network. She loves being able to think through anatomy and come up with treatments that really “fit” her clients and she is happiest when she has empowered clients to take charge of their own health.

Geneviève opened the original Full Circle Health Network in 2010, which then offered Registered Massage Therapy and later, Classical Osteopathy.  In 2014, Full Circle Health Network expanded and opened up in the beautiful Woolen Mill building into a much larger and more elegant space – it was the best move she ever could have made! Since then, Full Circle Health Network has continued to expand its services, attracting some of the best practitioners in Kingston working in the field of complementary healthcare.

Geneviève holds a Masters in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences and an Honours Bachelor of Science in Health Studies and Gerontology from the University of Waterloo. She has a 2200-hour Massage Therapy Diploma from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, where she pursued additional training in pre- and post-natal massage care, including high-risk pregnancy care. Clinical experience includes work at the Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, ON, where she provided massage in the antenatal and postpartum units. She has taught Clinical Massage Therapy at Trillium College, and previously worked as a fitness instructor specialist (Can-Fit-Pro), “Varsity” Athletic Trainer, and Ergonomic Contractor and Health & Safety Specialist.

Laura is a University of Waterloo graduate currently attending the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, in her third year. She discovered osteopathy during her undergrad studies and never looked back. She knew immediately this was how she wanted to help people, through an integrative natural approach to healthcare. Laura was excited by the way the body was able to heal itself and the only apparatus she needed were her hands.

Laura is enthusiastic to be able to use the body’s anatomy and physiology to create individualized treatments based on what her patients need. She wants to share with people just how amazing their body can be.

Laura believes her relationship with her horse has given her a patient, quiet and intuitive approach to osteopathy and will continue to use this approach while working as part of the Full Circle Health Network team.
