My Philosophy

To truly understand our health we have to take an integrated approach to look at the whole picture. Things happen in life; physical and emotional stress and/or traumas adds up. Often issues get stored in our tissues that can cause dis-ease physically, physiologically, mentally and emotionally.

 

My wish is that you feel empowered to take steps towards your own health and to create change within. Small steps add up. You deserve to feel good.

About Me

Valerie Smith, MOMSc, CNP

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner 

&

Holistic Nutritionist

Osteopathy…

I first learned about Osteopathy when a friend recommended I go see one.  At the time I had been living with back pain for two years and had not found relief through other forms of treatment. After my first treatment I considered my Osteo a miracle man and began to research how I could help people in the same way.

 

In 2022 I completed the comprehensive four-year osteopathic education program through the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy (CAO) in Hamilton, Ontario. Graduating with a Masters of Practice Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Sciences (M.OMSc).

 

Nutrition...

In my mid-twenties I was told I would be on medication for life. In response I became a Holistic Nutritionist and learned how to manage physical symptoms through what I put in and on my body.

 

In 2012 I graduated with Honours from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition as a Certified Nutritional Practitioner. I am also a certified Metabolic Balance Coach and currently enrolled in the Culinary Nutritionist Expert Program.

…       

Prior to studying osteopathy, I spent 18 years in Corporate Finance and resigned from the role as a Director of Finance to pursue a career where I could make a personal difference to others in a quest for health.

I am also certified as an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Clearing Work and Tao Healing Hands Practitioner with a growing interest in trauma informed work and Human Design (2/4 Emotional ManGen). In 2021 I became a Best Selling author, coauthoring the book Wounds to Wisdom.

I live in Newmarket with my two beautiful kids and puppy. I am generally active and love to play sports.
