OSTEOPATHIC MANUAL PRACTITIONER

Professional memberships: General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) of the United Kingdom, Ontario Association of Osteopaths, and the Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths.

Martha Faron, a native of Worcester, MA, USA, is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a BA in Communications in 1998. She began her career in emergency medicine and as a firefighter, reflecting her desire to help people in need of immediate care. These jobs required her to be physically fit and it was through sports (basketball, fencing, cross-country skiing, backpacking, kayaking) and being treated for injuries that developed her interest in manual medicine. She went on to complete postgraduate studies in Pre-Medicine in 2008 at UMass Amherst and a Master’s degree in Osteopathic manual therapy (M.Ost) in 2014 from the British School of Osteopathy in London, UK.

Osteopathic manual therapy aims to harness the innate healing abilities of the body whilst supporting a patient’s physical recovery using manual therapy and rehabilitative exercise. Her role as an osteopathic manual therapy is to guide, educate, and empower the patient during their treatment, with the patient at the center of the process.

Martha has extensive experience in the treatment and management of acute and chronic conditions and she can develop a care plan suited to the patient’s individual healthcare needs. She utilizes a multidisciplinary approach in treating musculoskeletal pain using dry needling, sports massage therapy and Reiki, alongside her osteopathic technique training. Her approach to patient rehabilitation and aftercare is informed by being a senior yoga instructor and lecturer for the past 16 years and her further study on exercise in the workplace for her Master’s dissertation.

Martha has specialist interests in the management of patients with chronic pain and has advanced training in the use of mindfulness meditation and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT). Her further post-graduate education in visceral osteopathy with the Barral Institute and Jean Pierre Barral DO has enhanced her knowledge of functional treatments for a patient with systemic conditions.

Martha welcomes patients of all ages for osteopathic manual therapy to manage their current health issues and restore a sense of balance and wellbeing in their lives.

Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths Member Statement

OSTEOPATHIC MANUAL PRACTITIONER

Sarah graduated from the University College of Osteopathy (formerly the British School of Osteopathy) in London, UK where she earned a Masters Degree in Osteopathy in 2019. Sarah also graduated from Dalhousie University in 2015 with a B.Sc. (majoring in Neuroscience).

She has experience providing osteopathic care in the UK to patients in various stages of life and circumstances, such as the elderly, pregnant women, athletes, people experiencing homelessness, and individuals with HIV/AIDS. Sarah is pleased to be back in Nova Scotia and to provide care to people in her home community.

Sarah was drawn to the practice of osteopathy based on its core principles and approach to patient healthcare. Osteopathy is a manual therapy which views the body as a dynamic and interconnected unit, in which the person’s biology, psychological state, and social situation impact one another. It takes a patient-centred approach to healthcare and strives to act as a catalyst in the person’s recovery process and the ability to manage their condition.

Sarah aims to enhance each patient’s health and well-being by identifying the factors that are influencing the individual’s capacity to adapt and function in their environment. She tailors each appointment and management plan to suit the client’s personal goals, lifestyle, and general well-being by using a range of osteopathic manual techniques, providing lifestyle and exercise recommendations, and educating patients. Sarah predominantly works with structural osteopathic techniques but also uses craniosacral, functional, and visceral modalities.

Sarah comes from Dartmouth, NS, where she has been involved in organized sport, community service, and leading youth recreational activities for most of her life. She enjoys spending time swimming, running, and playing soccer, as well as playing the piano and traveling.

Her professional membership includes the General Osteopathic Council (UK) and registrations with the Ontario Association of Osteopaths and the Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths.
