Malerie graduated from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in 2020 and has been in private practice since 2018. She is thrilled to be a new member of OSTCAN association and to be serving the greater community of Guelph where she has lived for the past 8 years.
Always knowing deep down that the body could self-heal and self-regulate, Malerie searched for years to heal the body through different modalities. Through food; attending Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida. Through movement; healing from her own surgery. And then finally Osteopathy found her. Being treated by an Osteopath and having relief of pain within a few treatments inspired Malerie to attend school in Hamilton, Ontario where she underwent a rigorous four and half year program with no less than 4,200 hours of education and hands-on training. Malerie continues to practice classical Osteopathy, following the same principles that were created by the founder (A.T Still) of Osteopathy in 1874.
Osteopaths follow the principles of Osteopathy and work with the body using the anatomy on all layers to guide the treatment. Essentially, Osteopaths realign the body in the centre of gravity, relaxing and lengthening the tissues allowing fluid to flow in the path of least resistance and continue to heal on its own. Osteopaths know the body is self-healing and self-regulating and as long as muscles and organs are getting the supplies they need through the artery and nerve then proper drainage can take place though the vein and lymphatic system which will restore the health of the body. Osteopathic care has been found to be helpful for people of all ages with all types of health concerns, including: musculoskeletal issues (TMJ issues, tendonitis, frozen shoulder & sciatica as some examples) spinal health, traumatic injury, digestive issues, sleep problems, reproductive issues, respiratory health and migraines.
Malerie continues to study anatomy, physiology and principles of practice of Osteopathy when she’s not studying or working she’s busy with her partner, son and fuzzy family on their farm. Filling their days with outdoor activities such as gardening, hiking, fishing, archery, any adventure that comes their way.
