My name is Summer. I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and I was just recently diagnosed after living 28 years WITH it. It's a rare connective tissue genetic disorder. I have seen chiropractors with little to no improvement of my scoliosis and chronic pain after years and years of treatment. I have had many Doctors who couldn't figure out my condition, but tried to help me the best they could. I am a new client of my Manual Osteopath Elissa and I find her extraordinary. This is my first time with a Manual Osteopath. She recently figured out the cause of my pain that put me in the emergency room a few weeks ago. She is very accommodating, kind, knowledgeable and helpful. I get more info about my body from her then I do from other medical professionals and I trust her judgement. Her treatments work. The short term healing that happens after a treatment is well worth the end result of a proper functioning body and pain relief. I would highly recommend Elissa to anyone who is seeking Manual Osteopathic treatments for pain, bone, muscle and joint issues, jaw issues, amongst a list of other health issues. Thanks Elissa :)

Carolyn Smith, DOMP

I'm an active hockey player, golfer, and father of two. My shoulder was causing debilitating pain, and I was diagnosed with Bursitis. By the time I sought treatment I could barely lift my arm. Carolyn quickly assessed the  strength and flexibility difficulties, and provided me with a program of stretches and exercises tailored to my recovery. With every week I was surprised at the progress! Carolyn consistently made an effort to communicate with me, evolve her treatment, and shift my program with my improvement. After six weeks I have recovered most of my strength and flexibility, and I am back out on the ice. Carolyn is professional, empathetic, passionate, and hard working. Both Carolyn and the Clinic come highly recommended.

Carolyn is a warm , considerate and very gentle person. She listens carefully and pays  attention to your needs and problems. She explains what she will do and make certain you are always comfortable. I am very pleased with the treatment and care that she gives.

An active person in his late sixties, and not one to seek out care too often, I wondered if it was worth seeing an Osteopath and was skeptical - but my son had recommended it. My first treatment was a result of Carolyn Smith informing a relative that she no longer needed more sessions, after just two visits.  This freed up the third appointment for me.   It definitely helped.  Carolyn listened carefully to my needs, asking clarifying questions when required in a very thoughtful and attentive way.  Treatment freed up a number of muscles and joints to a degree not experienced before. I was very impressed with the level of Carolyn's expertise, including suggestions on stretches, exercises, tips on posture that would contribute to my long-term well-being.  My follow-up session took me to a level of improvement that allowed me to carry on myself.  I highly recommend Carolyn Smith for exceptional treatment, results and care.
