Established in 2013, Noricum Manual Therapy offers Manual Osteopathy to all ages. Osteopathy is a patient-centered, hands-on approach to health that recognizes the body as a self-regulating unit in which function and structure interact with another. Manual Osteopathy is guided by principles of relating to the patient as a whole. A well-trained osteopath has detailed knowledge in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and biodynamics as well as a highly-skilled sense of touch. These skills help the practitioner in assessing and restoring balance between all body systems: musculo-skeletal (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia), cardiovascular (circulation and blood vessels), neurological (nervous system), cranial-sacral (cranial bones and their connection to the sacrum/tailbone), and visceral (organs). In health, the body seeks to maintain a balance within and between these systems. ​

By means of individually developed manual treatments, unrestricted mobility of all body structures is sought to support the natural healing process.

The osteopathic treatment is intelligent, gentle and mostly painless. It is well suited for all ages, from 0-99 (and beyond).

​The basic concept of osteopathy was discovered in 1874 by American Physician Dr. Andrew Taylor Still and is now practised worldwide as a successful treatment method and being further developed on a scientific basis.

I am looking forward to meeting you.

PLEASE NOTE: We will be closing our doors at the end of April 2024. You can prebook your appointments until then online. We still accept new patients at this point.

ABOUT

About my approach

As a manual osteopathic practitioner I use various manual approaches to address the health of your connective tissue and therefore your health as a whole. My goal is not only to treat your complaints, but also to educate you on the mechanics of connective tissue and to make sure that you understand possible patterns of dysfunction and how your body is trying to deal with them.

To me, communication and trust between you and me is equally important as the application of therapeutic techniques. It is important that we understand each other as a team that tries to shine some light on your body’s complaints, instead of passively letting someone “fix” your body’s issues. 

Osteopathy is not magic, but it is smartly applied anatomy, with a practitioner that can listen and pay attention to you and your body. In this respect, it can support your body to restore balance and health. Osteopathy has many benefits as well as limitations, which I am very well aware of. No health care practice is a “cure all” because we, as living human beings, are much too complex for a “one for all” generic approach.

Although you might suffer from the same condition as your friend, everybody responds differently to treatments. That holds true for all approaches of medicine. I will be honest with you if I see limitations that might be better treated with other forms of therapy.

As an individual, as well as a Manual Osteopath, I am always open to concerns and suggestions. I see my practice as a collective approach to your health, communicating and collaborating with other practitioners as needed.

Here is a short video explanation, and a link to a podcast-interview with Florian.

Baby with Teddy Bear

Since manual osteopathy is such a gentle way of treating our body, it is very well suited to newborns and toddlers as well. Personally I love treating babies, they are fast to react and mostly don't need many treatments. When I treat babies in my office, they often fall asleep during the treatment.

The most common issues I treat in newborns and toddlers are colic, constipation, too much gas, plagiocephaly and shoulder dystocia. 

 

You are encouraged to breastfeed during the treatment, since cranial mechanics (how the bones in the head interact while feeding) are best assessed and treated during "performance". If you want to know more about pediatric osteopathy, please click here

 

If you bring your toddler, please bring their favourite book, toy, blanket, etc. to make them comfortable.

Patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by their legal guardian.

FIRST VISIT
FEES

Before your first visit, you will be asked to sign up for an online account, where you can already fill out your intake history online (which will save us time in the office) and supply copies of medical reports, if you have them electronically stored. Your information will be secure, our online booking program is government approved and adheres to the Personal Health Information Act of Manitoba.

 

At your first visit we will take a review of your issues. After talking about your aches, pains and complaints, some assessment might be needed to determine the course of the approach to get you better.

What you should bring:

 

- Comfortable clothing (i.e. comfy shorts, yoga pants or leggings)

- Results from MRI, CT, X-ray or other medical reports
- Notes from referring caregivers (Physician, Physiotherapist, Chiropractor, Athletic Therapist, OT, etc.)

 

The frequency of treatments is based on findings from the initial treatment. Adequate time (min. 2 weeks) is allotted between each treatment, allowing your body to integrate the changes made. Generally, you should start seeing changes after 2-3 treatments. For first time bookings, I recommende to book two appointments, an initial intake appointment and a follow-up treatment, about 2 weeks apart. If you cannot find an opening, you can use our waiting list feature online (found at the bottom of the booking page).

Patients under 18 years of age must be accompanied by their legal guardian.
