Meet The Team!
Kaylene Joseph DOMP, R.M.O BFA, YT
Registered Manual Osteopath
As a former professional dancer (BFA- Contemporary Dance 2012 Concordia University) and yoga instructor (Yoga Source 2008), Kaylene has a broad knowledge and understanding of the mechanics of the body. Her interest in Manual Osteopathy flourished after working as a traction therapist in a chiropractic environment. After graduating from the National Academy of Osteopathy in 2015, Kaylene worked between Dublin and London as a Manual Osteopath before setting out to bring her talents home to Ontario.
Not one body is the same as the next- this means you can typically find Kaylene taking a broad range of courses to add to her repertoire of techniques. In addition to Manual Osteopathy, she is also fully certified in practicing Rapid Neuro Fascial Reset (great for patients who like a stronger approach!), as well as Strain and Counterstrain techniques (great for those who require a softer approach!).
RMT (Sutherland-Chan 2007)
Heather has been proudly practicing Registered Massage Therapy in York Region for over a decade with an evolving, unconventional, holistic approach to massage therapy. She applies keen problem-solving skills and intuition to get to the source of your soft tissue and joint dysfunctions; then uses compassionate individualized touch to assess and treat your aches and pains; all while facilitating a better relationship between your conscious mind and your body. Her subtle use of pressure can get past your muscle guarding reflexes, allowing you to relax and retrain your body without feeling overworked or overwhelming your nervous system. Heather has extensive experience working with pre and perinatal clientele, both in a pelvic floor rehab setting and as a labour support practitioner; she is delighted to be working towards her certification as a birth Doula. She continues to pursue her education in a variety of healing modalities including Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation; and is also well versed in the more traditional Swedish massage techniques as well as gentle fascial release, strain/counterstrain techniques, neural pathway re-training, breath work, and meditative work like Reiki, and Huna.
Heather's interests include Shamanism, eastern philosophy, meditation, pregnancy & birth, parenting, comparative anatomy, pets, comedy, and yoga.
