Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
Luisa is a lifelong student of health and wellness. She strongly believes in finding the root cause of any dysfunction and treating the body as a whole, rather than simply the symptom. She trusts in the body’s ability to self-regulate and self-heal. Her curiosity and drive for understanding and healing the mind and body propelled her to start a career as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). After obtaining two degrees in Massage Therapy from schools in Europe and Canada, Luisa has worked as a licensed RMT for the past 15 years. Looking to continue growing her passion in holistic healing, she completed a five-year program at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in 2019. In 2020, she wrote her thesis and successfully earned a diploma in Osteopathy Manual Practice (DOMP), as well as diploma in the Science of Osteopathy (DScO).
To complement her training, Luisa has taken numerous courses in advanced paediatrics, myofascial release, endocranial spasms, brain intestinal axis, concussions, biodynamics, women’s health dysfunctions, and palpation fields, among others. She has done extensive work with pregnant women, babies, and children by helping with torticollis, plagiocephaly, reflex issues and sucking difficulties. She has been praised in her work with patients who had gastro-intestinal tract disorders and suffered from constipation, acid reflex, and ptosis. Additionally, she has treated other problems, such as TMJ, strains, sprains, and chronic and acute pain. Luisa regularly attends scholarly symposiums and workshops to continue learning and updating her work.
