After being introduced to osteopathy in 2011, Mina grew a keen interest towards the profession as his desire was always to help people feel better and pain free.
Mina is a British trained osteopath who went on to complete his Masters in Osteopathic Medicine in London, England at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. He is appreciates the holistic approach that osteopathy takes as his job is to seek the underlying physiological cause of the issue, following the bio-psyhco-social model of health. Mina aims in providing support to educate, engage and influence patients in decisions pertaining to achieving and maintaining optimal health.
In his two years of clinical training in the UK, Mina has dealt with all patients ranging from young athletes, office workers, elderly patients, factory/industrial workers as well as pregnant women. He uses osteopathy as a way of detecting and treating injuries in the muscles, ligaments, fascia, nerves and joints of the body. Having a highly developed sense of touch known as palpation, he will gently and specifically, evaluate and treat injuries.
As an osteopathic practitioner, Mina believes that the body has the ability to heal itself and the skilled application of osteopathic techniques (massage, visceral, mobilization and soft tissue) in addition to exercise prescription can improve this process and help patients reach their optimal goal.
Mina is a member of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners and is covered by insurance. He is located in downtown Toronto.
