Growing up as a competitive dancer, as well as playing a wide variety of sports both competitively and recreationally, Sarah has always had a passion for mobility, exercise and movement as maintenance for overall health, preventative and rehabilitative therapy. While at Queens working as a student therapist with the Men's Varsity Hockey team she developed a curiosity into the study of manual osteopathy. Manual osteopathy is a holistic approach to manual therapy that involves finding and treating the root cause of a problem to allow the body to function optimally and help heal itself. Sarah believes that the use of osteopathic techniques and methodology can provide a positive influence on one's anatomy and physiology to help each individual achieve his/her goals and optimal functioning.
