Instructor: Lori Eisler
Lori graduated from the Southern Ontario College of Osteopathy as an osteopathic manual practitioner in 2016 and currently has a private practice in downtown Toronto. She's a member of Ontario Federation of Osteopathic Professionals (DOMP) and a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (RMT). As a registered massage therapist and shiatsu therapist and instructor at AIM Academy (formerly The Shiatsu School of Canada) her practice reflects over 25 years of practice in these combined disciplines.
She became interested in Osteopathy because of its gentle yet effective approach to treatment. It includes a variety of techniques; myofascial, joint mobilization, sustained touch, contract/relax, cranial sacral and visceral. In a supportive and relaxing environment, She aims to work with clients to alleviate symptoms with manual therapy and movement education.
Osteopathy is beneficial for clients of all ages. Lori has a special interest in clients with chronic pain, headaches, anxiety, depression and pre/post-natal health. As a former professional dancer who continues to be involved in movement disciplines she has a special interest in exercise for rehabilitation. Yoga, pilates, strength training and can inform patients on meditation homecare strategies. Movement is important to facilitate and support the effectiveness of client treatment and recovery.
Lori has an ongoing interest in new research in neuroscience and pain. Recent findings show that the experience of pain is a result of complex interactions in the brain and nervous system that involve the biological, social and psychological aspects of a person called the biopsychosocial model. This understanding parallels her shiatsu training which looks at the interconnections of the mind and body from an Eastern perspective.
