Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
Christine Loch – Osteopath
Christine is an osteopathic manual practitioner (DOMP, 2011) and registered massage therapist (1999), practising in Toronto for the past 16 years. She completed her thesis for her DOMP, on the normalization of the dural system (the sheath around the brain and spinal cord) on grip strength in a population with tennis elbow. She has pursued continuing education in the areas of joint mobilization (Still technique), visceral and joint adhesions (scar tissue release), and mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI).
Today, she combines the strengths of both osteopathy and massage therapy to treat a wide variety of conditions and injuries, including whiplash, concussions, repetitive strain injuries from athletics and computer use as well as pelvic, sacroiliac dysfunction, digestive disorders and chronic pain.
Christine believes in an integrated approach to treatment, educating the client of their condition and introducing a home exercise plan, in order to work as a team towards the clients’ optimal health.
She enjoys a healthy and active lifestyle through running, triathlon, yoga, meditation and reading.
