Ekaterina is an Osteopathic manual practitioner at Feeling Well Place clinic with a very sought-after set of skills. She is one of the very few specialists in Canada, who, along with Structural and Biodynamic osteopathy, practices Craniosacral Therapy and Primitive Reflex Integration.
Ekaterina studied Osteopathy because the main tool for osteopathic manual practitioners is patient’s body and its self-healing powers and it resonated well with Ekaterina’s holistic approach to health care. Human body is capable of curing and fixing itself with the great efficiency, but it requires a very unique, well-trained and well-tuned specialist to help it to do so. Among clients of our centre Ekaterina became well-known as a pediatric specialist, who works with newborns, from the very first day or even hours of their lives, babies, toddlers and older children. Simply put, Ekaterina’s clients range varies from prenatal state all the way to adolescence and grown-up age.
Ekaterina graduated from Southern Ontario College of Osteopathy, and keeps her level of education current and cutting-edge by taking numerous osteopathic courses, together with other modalities, such as:
- Craniosacral Therapy with Upledger Institute (Somato-Emotional Release, Obstetric and Pediatric CST, Immune System CST).
- Primary Reflex Integration with Masgutova Institute (MNRI), currently enrolled in the MNRI certification program
