Tracy Estey-Willick, D.O.M.P., B.PE, R.M.T.
Tracy is a Registered Osteopath as well as a Registered Massage Therapist. She has completed the 5 years of osteopathic study with the Canadian College of Osteopathy. In 2010 she completed a thesis relating to malocclusion in children. Tracy is an instructor with the Canadian College of Osteopathy where she teaches a course regarding the lumbar spine (low back). Currently she continues to do research through the British College of Osteoapathic Medicine. She is a member of the Ontario and Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths as well as the Massage Therapists Association of Nova Scotia.
Tracy’s treatments are based on the idea that the whole body is inter-related. The goal of each treatment is to restore balance in the body, thus allowing a state of health to occur. She treats with her hands using a variety of non-invasive techniques. She focuses on treating the cause of dysfunction and pain, rather than concentrating on the symptoms. She assesses and treats movement restrictions in the body that prevent a feeling of fitness and health.
Her extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology allows her to give highly effective treatments. It is her belief that she and the patient are in a partnership working towards health. Along with the treatments at the clinic she often provides the information necessary for an individual to perform stretching and strengthening at home. These exercises are based on the unique needs of each patient. Tracy’s knowledge of exercise and stretching prescription is based not only on her massage and osteopathic education, but also on over 13 years of work in the fitness industry prior to becoming a manual therapist.
Tracy treats many concerns including:
- Acute and Chronic pain
- Back pain
- Jaw pain and dysfunction
- Sinus congestions and pain
- Women’s health (including pregnancy)
