Kayte Armstrong, DVM, CVA, M.MOSc, is certainly unique in Barrie, and as far as we know all of Canada. Not only is she a fully qualified Osteopath and graduate of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, she is also a highly experienced veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience taking care of both small and large animals. Her skillset is so exceptional that she is now teaching at and creating a course in animal osteopathy for her former Alma mater.
Still Moving provides Osteopathic services to both people and animals
Kayte trained in classical Osteopathy which seeks to find the cause of a problem rather than just repeatedly fixing it. Osteopathic care is based on the principles that the body is a whole, not a collection of pieces, and that by ensuring optimal alignment and structural integrity, the body can heal itself. Osteopathy depends on an excellent working knowledge of physiology and anatomy. Movement and alignment is improved through treatment, which then optimizes blood flow, lymphatic drainage and nerve signalling ability. This translates to such effects as reduction in pain, better sleep patterns and increased energy and vitality.
Still Moving Osteopathy qualifies as a care provider under most benefits packages.
