Osteopathy Treatment vs Integrative Massage

Osteopathy Explained (Briefly)

This allows the client to thrive, as the body naturally heals from injuries, illness, and trauma.

Registered Massage Therapy with Osteopathic Techniques

Integrative Manual Treatment is a great option if you want to experience Osteopathic theory but your benefits or health care plan doesn’t have separate coverage for it! 

Integrative Manual Therapy is a unique therapeutic approach which draws on osteopathy principles and professional massage therapy practice. Integrative treatment starts with osteopathic & orthopedic assessments, and may include soft-tissue release, visceral manipulation, and Craniosacral therapy, as well as precision joint mobilizations and osteopathic manipulations and techniques, within the RMT Scope of Practice.*

*Eligible for direct billing or reimbursement under plans with RMT coverage.  Integrative Manual Treatment does not qualify for Osteopathic coverage.
