Andrea trained for 4 years in Hamilton, at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, and is a member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association. She graduated this past year with a Masters in Osteopathic Manipulative Science and prior to graduation she spent time working with a wide range of patients from digestive disorders/ chronic migraines/ back and neck pain/ neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson/ to prevention and rehabilitation of injury with professional athletes.
While developing her practice Andrea worked in a variety of clinical settings ranging from: court-side therapy at a variety of professional and youth sporting events, as part of an integrated health care network, in a professional osteopathic clinic, and at her private home clinics. These diverse settings have allowed her to develop her professional skills as an Osteopath, as well as gain experience working with a variety of patient types. She is the founder of ‘Natural Alignments –Osteopathy and Yoga Therapy.’ and works to provide her clients with individualized yoga programs to complement their osteopathic treatment.
Considering her passion for athletics, specifically volleyball, and her experience coaching both snowboarding as well as swimming, Andrea has had the opportunity to work with high performance athletes for the duration of her schooling. Over the past couple years she has been asked to attend events ranging from USAV in Kentucky as a men’s open team therapist, to OVA-Satellite tournaments in the GTA.
Over the years she has written several articles on holistic healing and this past year her article on body mechanics was published in the yoga conference magazine. As a yoga instructor and functional anatomy lecturer, Andrea has been invited to teach a variety of workshops at ‘The Yoga Conference and Show” held annually in both Toronto and in the past British Columbia.
Through her experience as a coach, athlete, yoga instructor and osteopath, Andrea brings a wealth of experience to the analysis and treatment of her patients.
