Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy used to reduce pain, increase physical mobility, and improve the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids. It follows the belief that the body is able to self-heal and self-regulate and emphasises the relationship between the human body’s structure and function. Osteopathic Manual Therapists use a mixture of approaches and techniques to create an individualised treatment plan for each patient based on the symptoms they present with. Osteopathy acts as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medicine.

What to Expect From Your Osteopathy Appointment

Before You Visit the Clinic

  • Create your account online at easehealth.janeapp.com, create your profile, then book your Initial Assessment.
  • Please arrive at your appointment showered and in loose fitting, comfortable clothes. Don’t forget to wear or bring socks. It will not be necessary to remove any clothing for your treatment.
  • Please arrive 5 minutes early. You can park in the back of the building off Grosvenor Ave. North, but you must enter by the Ottawa Street North door.

During Your Appointment

  • A first appointment will last between 45-60 minutes.
  • The practitioner will listen and ask questions about your specific situation, your general health and any other medical care you’re receiving.
  • An individualised treatment is then rendered. Follow up treatments last between 15-30 minutes.

After You Leave

  • Some patients might experience an increase in soreness for 24 to 48 hours after treatment as your body adjusts to the beneficial changes. If this occurs, don’t be alarmed; the discomfort should subside shortly.
  • If, for any reason, it does not subside, or you feel concerned, please contact your practitioner directly.
  • We would always prefer that you let us know how you are feeling.

Registered Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.

What to Expect From Your Massage Therapy Appointment

Before Your Massage

  • Please book your appointments online at easehealth.janeapp.com. If this is your first session, or if it has been over a year since your last visit, be sure to fill out the intake form before you arrive for your appointment. A link for this form is provided in your confirmation email.
  • Parking is available behind the building (off Grosvenor Ave. N). You must enter through the Ottawa St N door to come upstairs. Please text your practitioner or call the office (905-928-2768) if it is locked.
  • Your practitioner will actively listen and ask questions about your specific situation, your general health and any other medical care you are engaged in.
  • Your treatment will be discussed and agreed upon before we begin the massage session.

During Your Appointment

  • Once consent is given, your personalized treatment as discussed will begin.
  • Your practitioner will check in regularly to ensure you are comfortable and invite your feedback.
  • The treatment will stop at any time on your request.

After You Leave

  • Some clients might experience soreness for 24-48 hours after treatment as your body adjusts to the beneficial changes. If this occurs, don’t be alarmed; as with post-exercise soreness, the discomfort should subside. I recommend a 15-20 minute epsom salt bath and/or drinking ample water post-treatment in order to ameliorate these possible symptoms.

How We’re
Different

We believe healthcare should be inclusive, comprehensive, and available to all. That’s why we’ve created a clinic that exists to make every patient feel well cared for, comfortable, and heard.

We know all bodies are good bodies. We work hard to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all bodies, regardless of age, race, size or ability. As part of the LGBTQIA+ community for more than 30 years, we welcome all sexual orientations and gender expressions. Each treatment is individualised and tailored to treat the patient as they present on the day of their treatment.

Ease Osteopathy and Health is located on the top floor of a beautiful older building on Ottawa Street North. Due to the nature of the building, it is not wheelchair accessible. Because we believe in treating ALL bodies with equality and respect, we maintain an office on Upper James Street that has parking directly in front of the building and is wheelchair accessible, however doors are not automated. Please do not hesitate to book an osteopathic treatment at either location, or call us directly if you need assistance.
Book Accessible Appointment

The goal at Ease Health is to get each patient feeling better. We will take the time to listen to your needs, do a complete assessment and create an individualised treatment plan with your health as our top priority. When needed, we will work in partnership with traditional healthcare, as well as most other modalities. At Ease, your health always comes first. We strive to keep costs low to make care accessible for all, and to keep the number of visits required low. Please talk to your practitioner if you feel that you require care, but it is not within your budget.

We’re proud to be associated with organisations that allow us to help the community.
