Osteopathy is great for Yoga Practitioners, a patient testimonial

A patient testimonial for manual osteopathic treatments received from National Academy of Osteopathy graduate Melissa Biscardi, DOMP. Melissa has her own private manual osteopathic clinic in Toronto, Canada. 

“Thank you for helping relieve my long standing left-sided sciatica after just two treatments. Initially I thought your touch was so gentle that it couldn’t possibly be effective. But with the adjustments to my spine combined with the acupuncture, I am virtually pain free. This has allowed me to move without pain in my daily activities and in my yoga practice. I really like the fact that you are the studio on a regular basis, since this makes appointments with you very convenient. You are a true asset to Bikram Yoga Yonge.”

Thanks,
Jennifer

Testimonial from Jacinda Thomson, DO(MP)



Dr. Pourgol,

Good morning, hope you are doing well.  I know you like to see how your students are doing and thought you would like to know that my first article on manual osteopathy will be published soon.  Thank you for providing the knowledge to allow me to do this.  I have attached a copy.  
My business is growing and I am sure this will help spread the word, and bring more patients to Brighton Sport and Wellness Centre.
