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 https://www.facebook.com/asianbeyonce?fref=ts). 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!”

RESP: free money from government to study osteopathy

Are you taking advantage of RESP's? If not, you are missing a great opportunity to get money from the Canadian government towards your children's osteopathic education!

Canadians can use registered education savings plan (RESP) to pay in full for the cost of tuition of the diploma in osteopathic manual practice program of National Academy of Osteopathy.

The Canadian government offers thousands of dollars to help families defray the cost of tuition for their children by allowing them to open a registered education savings plan for each child. And here's the best part: for every dollar you put into the plan, the government kicks in a little extra for you. Depending on your income, the government portion can rise to as much as 40 cents for every dollar you put in yourself.
 
 

Testimonial from a Patient

Manual osteopath Adam (Ahmadreza) Hanaei, BSc, DOMP, DO (candidate) a graduate of National Academy of Osteopathy in Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada), and a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) student of National University of Medical Sciences works at the Complement Healthcare Clinic located at the West Vancouver Community Center.

Here is a testimonial from his patient after receiving osteopathic care:
“I received treatment from Ahmadreza for nerve compression in my shoulder that has been interfering with my work and life for many months. He was very knowledgeable and his technique was very effective in alleviating the pain and prompting healing. Ahmadreza was very cordial and understanding throughout the process and always kept me in good spirit and motivated while receiving treatment. I highly recommend him as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner.

Saving Money Helps You Live Longer!



Research into money and how it affects people was lacking for a long time. These days researchers have started looking into affects of money on health and well being and I like this very much. 

Researchers showed already that money improves your happiness, and quality of life. A research published today showed the mortality rate of people without savings, who have cancer or heart conditions was higher than those who had savings. This, researchers contributed to “financial stress”.

I teach my students to save 10% of their income and to keep 6 months of their income as available cash for emergencies. It is now proven by research that saving money makes you live longer. 

What sets us apart from other schools is all the knowledge our students receive in business management, wealth creation, asset protection, tax planning, investment, marketing, advertising, public relations, accounting and financial planning. We graduate successful manual osteopaths because we teach them everything we know about business management.
