She is currently a thesis candidate and her thesis topic involves the study and treatment of GERD. She plans to defend her thesis in the spring of 2020.
Additionally, Maxine is offering osteopathic techniques through her health center. Osteopathy is useful for addressing and treating many health issues including but not limited to: back and neck pain, whiplash, GERD, joint pain, plantar fasciitis, TMJ dysfunction, tinnitus, bladder incontinence, frozen shoulder, digestive issues, etc. Her osteopathic techniques service cannot be covered under your extended health care insurance since she has not yet finished her osteopathy program.

Maxine is currently accepting new clients.
Also, she works as Mike’s physiotherapy assistant and sees clients one on one for yoga therapy or for individualized exercise sessions. These exercise sessions focus on your individual needs and goals. These can be covered through your Physiotherapy insurance if you begin with an assessment with T.A.H.C.’s Physiotherapist, Mike Munro.
“The best explanation I can offer for an osteopathic approach is my story. I had years of plantar fasciitis and sought after and received many complementary health treatments. Nothing helped long-term until I saw an osteopath. My osteopath said my uterus was pushed to the left since being pregnant with one of my children. She did work on my uterus and my foot got better”.
Client testimonial: “Our last Osteo session had a deeply beneficial effect. My gait was unencumbered, the “stutter steps” that lead to falling were gone. No one has ever diagnosed what is wrong with my gait, and known what to do about it, before you!” B. M.
