Congratulations to NAO Class of Feb 2013 for Passing all the Exams

We are happy to announce that the Feb 2013 class of National Academy of Osteopathy has finished NAO examinations and all our students have passed our DOMP exams. We had a 100% success rate this term!
Our students are now studying hard to write the manual osteopathy board exams next week, and upon passing them NAO graduates will be eligible to become members of International Osteopathic Association, and to receive license numbers which entitle them to bill insurers and obtain malpractice insurance which they need before they could treat patients.

Most our graduates will be able to start working within a month or so.

Congratulations class of Feb 2013. We wish you success in the upcoming board exams.

Manual osteopaths in Canada, with a job satisfaction rate of 95% have one of the highest job satisfaction rates of all occupations as there is zero unemployment in this health profession and the starting salary is $30 per hour. These are some of the reasons manual osteopathy has been included in the top 25 best occupations in demand in Canada by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

O que é Osteopatia?

O que é Osteopatia?
 
Osteopatia (fundada em 1874, pelo Dr. Andrew Taylor Still em
EUA) é um sistema de medicina manual estabelecido
internacionalmente e pela análise e tratamento, que estabelece a
sua ênfase principal à integridade estrutural e funcional do
sistema musculo esquelético.
Osteopatas manuais usam uma variedade de tratamentos físicos
hands-on. Estes incluem técnicas de tecidos moles, mobilização
conjunta osteoarticular, manipulação espinhal, técnicas de
energia muscular, técnica de liberação miofascial, ponto gatilho
terapêutico, etc. Estas técnicas são normalmente utilizadas em
conjunto com conselhos sobre dieta, exercício, e profissional, em
uma tentativa para ajudar os pacientes a se recuperar de dores,
doenças e lesões.
Osteopatas com estilo europeu não prescrevem medicamentosou
realizam cirurgias, enquanto osteopatas com estilo
americanorealizam cirurgias e prescrevem medicamentos, bem
como a utilização técnicas osteopáticas ao gerenciar a
condição de
um paciente.

Neighbourhood Marketing

Neighborhood Marketing

Over 80% of your patients come from within 5 kilometers of your clinic. Focus all your marketing efforts within a circle, with a radius of 5 km, and a diameter of 10 KM with your clinic being at the center of it.

Make sure everyone who lives within this circle continues to hear from you and is familiar with your clinic name and your services. Make sure all the businesses in this circle know what you do and where you are.

This is what is called neighborhood marketing and is very effective in making you a success story. Your marketing budget is limited so it is best used within this circle. Marketing outside this circle depletes your marketing budget and brings inferior results. Your time and money is best used by concentrating your efforts within this circle.
