Airdrie Osteopathic Care & Wellness Centre

Airdrie Osteopathic Care & Wellness Centre Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening all systems in the body.
(7)

Osteopathy is for ALL- newborn, child, teen, female and males & senior citizens. CONCEPTS OF OSTEOPATHY Osteopath manual therapists believe that abnormal functioning of one area of the body can cause symptoms to present elsewhere in the body; the theory of TENSEGRITY. When the body is in balance, there is no excess stress. But when stress is produced in the body – causing imbalances – it can be amplified in other areas. Osteopathic manual therapists acknowledge that the body can heal itself and support the process by removing obstacles in the body. By investigating and paying attention to the alterations in the body (joints, ligaments, muscles, bones, connective tissue and organs), an osteopathic manual therapist is able to interpret whole patterns of aches, pains and general health concerns. The goal of osteopathy is to restore normal movement so the body can repair itself naturally.

It's been a bit like the hunger games and this Tuesday, the odds were not in my favour! Per the Alberta Government, I will be closed for the next 4 weeks as of Saturday December 12, 2020.

To help guide in the confusion, regulated professions are allowed to remain open while unregulated professions must close. And sadly, osteopathy is unregulated in Alberta - and all of Canada.

If you have an appointment with me over the next few days, I will be having 50minute appointments compared to 55min (this is to try and see a few more people!) For everyone else, I will be ready and waiting with itchy, impatient hands to see you all on January 8th (praying hard this date is correct!).

Last night I worked until 7pm and my family took me out for dinner to try and cheer me up. We had a great talk about gratitude and how sad it is for everyone. My girls realized our server will also be off - so we left a giant tip!!! and her surprise and authenticity and tears - made us all cry. It was the most real human connection I feel I have had in a while! I miss seeing faces, I miss hugging - just you wait til I can! For however cheesy this is, we are all in this together - so please light up the world with gratitude, kindness, and love - you never know what the power of good can do!

In gratitude for all of you this past year,

What does an osteopathic manual therapist and an engineer have in common?

Understanding the laws that governs the “engine” of the “body”.

“An osteopath is only a human engineer, who should understand all the laws governing his engine and thereby master disease.” Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (Founder of Osteopathy)

Just a friendly reminder - do your research!

DID YOU KNOW…

Not all osteopathic manual therapists are trained the same?

You can learn to do it online in 6 months? Or even take as little as 12-13 months to become a manual osteopath?

Does that scare you?

It scares me...

And after studying osteopathy for 9 years of my life before successfully completing the program, it also frustrates me to think that we are considered equal….

Ensure your osteopathic manual therapist is a member of the Alberta Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists to ensure you are in the best hands.

Note: All our osteopathic manual therapists are members of the AAOMT.

Great news as I am sure all of you know - Osteopathy was in Phase 2 and that opened 2 days ago!!!!!

I am so excited to see all of you!!! And I have exciting news - I'm taking my business out of the house! As of JUNE 29th, I will be joining Justin Willoughby at Airdrie Performance Massage (128 Main Street) or as the Airdrie peeps will say - the old bridal store. Everything else will remain as is so if you need to contact me - it's still the same old way :)

Lots of work behind the scenes to follow with the government guidelines to ensure everyone's safety.

When you schedule an appointment, you will see the Covid-19 questionnaire and again in the email confirmation. If you are sick PLEASE stay home!
I will be wearing a mask and I encourage you to as well. You may bring your own or I will have some available for a $2.00 charge.
Please arrive only 5min before your appointment time. There is a waiting room for you to sit in or I can text your phone when it is your turn.

If anyone is concerned about the guidelines, cleanliness etc and what I am currently doing, please don't hesitate to ask. If there is some comfort - I have done PPE and hand hygiene under observation as a nurse for over 17 years now :)

My schedule is posted for July and August presently. I am waiting to hear the governments' decision about schooling before posting the Fall schedule.

Stay safe and healthy

They've made it official!!!!!!! Yahooo!!!!

Yesterday, Jason Kenney announced Phase 2 could reopen this Friday, June 12, 2020.

We are in Phase 2!

Just in case you were curious.

Your osteopathic manual therapist will be allowed to return to practice when the Government of Alberta opens phase 2. However, this does not require that they return to work. It will be at their own discretion. Your therapist likely wants to return to help you, but some may have restraints like caring for an elderly or immunocompromised family member or young children that may prevent them from returning immediately.

Remember:

Referrals not needed to see an osteopathic manual therapist 😊

AND her yoga classes are amazing! One of my amazing friends assisting everyone she can! Check her out - you wont regret it!

Hi Everyone - thank you for following me when I didn’t even have one post up here!! 🙏 To feel as vibrant and healthy as I want to be, it means I have to look after my mind, body, and relationships. Most of you know I am a yoga and meditation teacher but what you may not know is that I am also a Reiki Master and Communication Facilitator. Right now I need ALL of these tools! If you do too please message me we can work together to come up with a plan for you to gather some new tools that can support you too! #yoga #reiki #communication #yyc #calgary #calgaryyoga #yogateachertraining #getmoving #newbeginnings #babysteps

As many of you are aware, the Government of Alberta mandated closure of all non-essential services as of Friday.
Sadly, this does include me! I am mandated to stay closed until I have further direction from the Government of Alberta. I have gone ahead and cancelled all of April's bookings (while trying not to cry!)
I miss seeing all of you and I don't know what to do with my hands! LOL - but in all seriousness, I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything - even if its to hear a voice!

As many of you already know, I did temporarily close the door of my practice last week. Even though the Government of Alberta has not directed the closure of complementary health care practices, my association (Alberta Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists; AAOMT) has recommended a halt of practice until March 30th.
I have gone into the schedule and cancelled all appointments until this date. I have written down everyone who had an appointment and I will be in contact to try and rebook all affected from the closure.
As someone who has worked the frontline of SARS and pregnant through H1N1, and have many dear friends, colleagues, and acquaintances who currently work the front line, I completely understand the need for social distancing at this time.
Please only gather your information from reputable sources such as Alberta Health Services and the World Health Organization.
I hope everyone stays healthy, safe, (and sane!) through these new times! It was a major change in the Hatch household this week for sure!
Many blessings

I wanted to send a quick message out to all In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic. I would like to reassure everyone that I am taking every precaution to maintain a clean and healthy environment. Along with regular cleaning daily, I have added extra cleaning measures including weekly professional cleaning to protect us all.
On that note, if you are experiencing symptoms consistent with the Coronavirus, (please visit the Alberta health services website or call 811 for correct and up to date information) - I ask that you take proper precautions by staying home and rescheduling.
This is an extremely stressful time with never before circumstances occurring. Please gather your information from reputable sources and stay kind!
If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to reach out.
Stay healthy!

FYI!

DYK - In Alberta, the Health Professions Act protects the titles “Osteopath” and “Osteopathic practitioner”. This means that only licensed, medically trained, Osteopathic Physicians graduating from American universities can use them. For this reason non-physician Osteopaths graduating from Colleges outside America use the title “Osteopathic Manual Therapist” if they want to work in Alberta.

The AAOMT is a first step in the organization and regulation of manual osteopathic practice by osteopathic manual therapists in Alberta. It agrees with and meets the Osteopathic International Alliance and World Health Organization in both the definition and the minimum educational requirements for both. In order to support both these organizations and further Osteopathy in Canada, the AAOMT will be taking all the steps necessary to get Osteopathic manual therapists recognized and protected, both nationally and provincially.

Sadly, in Alberta this is the same - the Alberta Association of Manual Osteopath’s (AAOMT) ensure best practice and educ...

Sadly, in Alberta this is the same - the Alberta Association of Manual Osteopath’s (AAOMT) ensure best practice and education

How to choose an Osteopathic Practitioner? Osteopathy, as practiced by Osteopathic Practitioners is not a regulated health profession in BC; therefore, use of title does not convey training standards, like it does in many health professions.

In other words, if someone calls himself or herself an Osteopathic Practitioner, it does not necessarily mean they have the same training, credentials, and standards as someone else.

It’s important to choose an Osteopathic Practitioner that is a member of an organization that maintains high standards, such as Osteopathy BC and the member organizations of the Canadian Federation of Osteopaths.
