Donna Taylor

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner, D.O.M.P

Donna is a Manual Osteopathic Practitioner with over 20 years of clinical osteopathic experience. She graduated from the Canadian College of Osteopathy after 7 years of training and the successful completion of an internationally accredited thesis on the Concept of the Fulcrum.

Donna’s interest in allopathic medicine initially drew her to a career in Medical Laboratory Technology. Working in a hospital setting as a biochemist and immunologist, she developed a passionate interest in the body’s healing mechanism. After years of medical research, her interest shifted to include a more holistic approach. Further studies in Medical Intuition and Vibrational Energy Medicine contributed to her unique perspective on healing. A deep appreciation for both allopathic and holistic medicine eventually lead her to the study of Manual Osteopathy, a treatment modality and art that perfectly marries the two disciplines.

Highly sought as a consultant, her unique skillset allows her to get to the root cause of the patient’s issue. Incorporating electrotherapy adds a cutting edge technology to the services she offers.

Sometimes all the body needs to activate the healing process is a gentle touch by a skilled hand; one that can read the body’s signals and perceive where an underlying restriction may be inhibiting proper functioning.
