Chen Yu (Jacky) Wang, Manual Osteopathic Therapist (MOT)
Hi, I am Jacky. I graduated from Manual Osteopathic College of Canada (MOCC) and will be the manual osteopathic therapist in this clinic. I am also a certified personal trainer with a background in kinesiology. I believe that health is multi-dimensional and is about balance amongst our body, mind and spirit. All aspects of life, including diet, lifestyle, occupation, finances, environment, family and social relationships, can affect our health and wellness. I am particularly interested in helping people through manual approaches because I believe in the healing power of touch. Throughout the intensive academic program, I have applied the knowledge and skills I learned to help friends and family feel better and recover from various injuries and conditions. I believe that self-care is the most important mission in our life. We must be able to take care of ourselves before tending to others. As a MOT, I take on the new mission to not only tend to people, but also to educate them how to tend to themselves. I am also a lifelong learner who will keep learning new knowledge and techniques in order to help my clients in more ways.
What is manual osteopathic therapy? How does it differ from RMT and chiropractic? How can you benefit from MOT?
Manual Osteopathic therapists aim to find the root cause of client’s pain or discomfort by running a comprehensive whole-body assessment and to treat it with their hands using various gentle, but precise techniques. These techniques adjust the spine and other skeletal structures and are much slower, gentler compared to the fast, forceful techniques employed by chiropractors. They also work gently to release the more superficial myofascial system as opposed to the deep tissue massage employed by registered massage therapists.
MOT can treat a wide range of physical and neurological issues, including pain and discomfort in the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, neck, low back and head. Craniosacral techniques can help with neurological and psychological conditions such as headache, concussion, anxiety, depression, ADHD and autism, etc. Visceral manipulation can even help with digestive, urinary, reproductive and a range of other visceral conditions.
The easiest way to know what I do and how osteopathy works is by booking an appointment with me and trying it out. I look forward to seeing you in the clinic!
