Wendy has over 30 years of manual therapy experience, initially as a physiotherapist and in the past ten years as an osteopath as well. Wendy is continuously studying the human body - its skeletal, myofascial, visceral and neuro vascular interconnectedness. She is passionate about the intricacies of the body’s anatomic structure and the energies connecting it.
The majority of Wendy’s recent osteopathic continuing education courses have been on the non-manipulative, gentle approaches that promote a relaxing & healing response in the body (e.g. the biodynamic osteopathic approach, cranial sacral approach and gentle assessment approaches which are based on the body’s subtle responses). Her approach is good for anyone seeking a deep gentle experience and especially good for people who cannot tolerate manipulative treatment due to arthritic or bone conditions, advanced age or joint laxity (pregnancy, injury or fascial syndromes). The aim is to reach beyond your symptoms and get to the inner source of dysfunction. Osteopathy integrates well with other treatments and health activities. Wendy is ready to collaborate with you and your team to optimize your health
