Courtney Steven is an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, she graduated and received her Master of Osteopathic Manual Science (M.OMSc.) from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton. Prior to her journey into Osteopathy Courtney was a Registered Kinesiologist, she graduated with a H.Ba.Kin. from Lakehead University in 2013.
After graduating she worked as a Registered Kinesiologist at a Physiotherapy company in her home town, Stratford, before discovering Osteopathy. Since a young age Courtney always knew that she wanted to work with people and after a few sport related injuries she knew that she wanted to be able to help them to feel better.
In 2016 she found her calling in Osteopathy and quickly enrolled in the 4 year program. When she isn’t working Courtney enjoys spending time with her friends and family, camping, and being involved in the community through the local Junior Farmer’s program as well as providing medical assistance to the women’s Black Swan rugby team in Stratford. She also loves to travel and experience new cultures.
Reflexology uses focused pressure to manipulate reflexes on your feet, hands and ears, sending your body’s own healing energy to where it is needed. These reflexes correspond to all organs, glands and parts of your body. Reflexology improves the blood supply to cells, organs and systems, aiding the body to nourish and repair itself.
This in turn helps the body relieve stress (which causes up to 75% of all illnesses today), release toxins and return to a state of rest and repair known as homeostasis, where all of the body systems are balanced. Reflexology is a therapy that aims to improve our general health and sense of well being by promoting the body’s ability to heal, adjust and balance itself.
It can also help with specific problems such as:
– allergies, aches/pains, poor circulation
– digestive problems, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea
– headaches, migraines, sinusitis
– menstrual problems, PMS, depression
– pregnancy, labour, postnatal problems
– stress, anxiety, toxicity, energy blocks
– suppressed immune system, sleep disorders, fatigue
Reflexologists have been called in after open heart surgery to help get the circulation going, we work with Cancer patients after chemotherapy treatments and work closely with those who have M.S. and have had wonderful results.
I have enjoyed doing Reflexology for nearly 16 years. My treatment starts with an amazing head and face massage to open up the meridians, followed by a foot and leg massage with essential oils and lotions.
I also offer Ear Candling, I am a Certified Iridologist and I am studying Reiki.
