Sarah, Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

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

Sarah graduated from Dalhousie University with a B.Sc. in Neuroscience as her first degree. Her keen interest in human anatomy, physiology, and psychology combined with a passion for enhancing health and wellness led her to study osteopathy. Sarah then earned a Master’s degree in Osteopathy from the University College of Osteopathy (formerly the British School of Osteopathy) in London, UK.

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. The osteopathic approach to healthcare is a patient-centred one where the therapist strives to act as a catalyst in the person’s recovery process and their ability to manage their condition.

Her personal experience in the healthcare system has helped her understand the value of a patient-centred approach. In order to achieve a positive outcome, Sarah believes that healthcare must be a partnership between patient and practitioner. Each patient’s health needs and goals should be heard and treated in a manner individual to them.

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.

She has experience providing osteopathic care in the UK and Canada. She is pleased to be working in Nova Scotia and providing care to people in her home community. Sarah regularly treats people in various stages of life, from youths to seniors, and with diverse needs, including athletes, pregnant women and office workers. She welcomes new and returning patients to her practice.
