Regulation of Osteopathy in Ontario

The word "osteopathy" is not regulated in Ontario or any of the other provinces in Canada. The word "osteopath" is regulated in Ontario. That is why National Academy of Osteopathy (Canada) graduates are permitted to use the word "osteopathy" in their clinic names or call what they do "osteopathy". The term "osteopath" is regulated in Ontario, British Columbia and some other provinces but not all.

In the province of Quebec and some other provinces our graduates can call themselves "osteopath". In provinces where the term "osteopath" is regulated our graduates call themselves manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners.

Dream Big, Take Action

I have chosen “Dream Big, Take Action” as the motto for the Pourgol Family Coat of Arms because it signifies my life philosophy and the reason for my success.

When I started National Academy of Osteopathy, I dreamed big. I set a goal of teaching in 100 cities across the world. Now we teach osteopathy in 68 countries (well over 100 cities worldwide). While “dreaming big” gives me the motivation and energy to persevere “taking action” is the part that makes my big dreams come true.

I teach my students everything I know about business because I want them to achieve financial success. You can also achieve your goals if you take action and do three things daily that bring you closer to your goals.

Chiropractic and Osteopathy: A Patient’s Experience

Here is a patient testimony given by Ms. Bianca Lau (taken from her Facebook page with permission The treating manual osteopath was Sean Dawkins, a 2016 graduate of National Academy of Osteopathy. Sean works at the Lakefront Medical Clinic in Toronto.
“Sean has helped me get through my lower back injury the past couple months. I was very hesitant to try an alternative treatment after the frustration of spending hundreds of dollars with a chiropractor -with little to no results. I was very impressed of the noticeable difference after my first treatment with Sean. Since then, I've been seeing him once a week, and I'm excited to be able to lift heavier weights at the gym again!”
