Diane Swiderski, Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, Guelph Ontario
Hi, I’m Diane, a happy sensitive introvert who enjoys the pure zen of working with my hands! I’ve been practicing manual therapy since 2000. I have a background in social work, massage and craniosacral therapy. I’m excited about helping women restore their health and wellbeing with osteopathy.
Here’s what I do:
I work with women (18+) at all stages of life. I assess and treat the whole body and release restrictions related to your symptoms and health concerns. Restrictions are found in the musculoskeletal, visceral/organ and craniosacral systems. When released, you are in a more favourable state for healing and restoring balance.
At your first visit we will review your health history, and the reason(s) you are seeking osteopathic treatment. If I determine it is safe and appropriate for you, then we will proceed with treatment. If not, I will refer you to your doctor or recommend other options. There is no cost for consultations. Treatment is gentle and you will remain clothed throughout the whole process. A plan will be recommended which may include home care advice. We will assess your progress after three to five treatments to see if further treatment is necessary.
