​​​A Little about me...
Véronique Vallée
Véronique grew up in New-Brunswick, she has always shown interest in natural health and helping people feel better about themselves. After she graduated from high school, she was uncertain which career path to pursue, and the choices seemed limited.  She decided to enroll in a volunteer program (Katimavik) where she travelled across Canada and worked with a variety of different people.

After returning from her travels, she enrolled at the University of Moncton in the Bachelor of Arts Program. From there she began a career working in retail sales where she was quickly promoted to store manager. This position was a great fit as it allowed her to inspire her staff and help customers have a greater sense of self worth through fashion.

After 10 years working in retail sales, she decided to leave New Brunswick in order to pursue a new challenge in Ontario and find her ideal career. During that process, Véronique began having very painful headaches. She did seek medical care, but found no solution to the problem. She was then introduced to Osteopathy from a family friend. This encounter changed her life. In retail, she was able to help customers feel better on the outside but quickly discovered that with Osteopathy she could help people feel better from the inside out, using just her hands.   

After a year in Ottawa, Véronique enrolled with the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton.  She travelled between Hamilton and Ottawa for four years to attend school, while simultaneously working in her home-based clinic in Ottawa. Four years later the program was completed and she successfully obtained her Masters in Osteopathic Manual Sciences.

Véronique has participated in a number of symposiums and lectures hosted by the Canadian Institute of Classical Osteopathy. She is now an active member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association and is always searching to find new and improved methods to put into practice in order to help better her patients health.

​A Little about Osteopathy...
The founder: AT Still
​Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), was first a Methodist Minister, he was a Physician, he served in the Union army and he was an Inventor. In 1874, he coined the term "Osteopathy", then he went on to open the first school of Osteopathy (ASO) in 1892 (now AT Still University) in Kirksville, Missouri.

Osteopathy, as it was founded in 1874, is based on an in-depth study of authentic human anatomy by a man with a mind equipped for mechanic understanding. He would see bones as support beams, muscles as activating forces, ligaments as cables, nerves as power supply, arteries as fuel and lubrication, veins and lymphatic vessels as effective waste management. He saw the body for what it is a "biological machine", but further more, he saw a self-sustaining biological machine. He reasoned that if life could be conceived, grow, sustain itself and heal for a large majority of the time, then there had to be obstacles that got in the way of these processes which conclude in illness. He then spent his time examining bodies, watching for disturbances in the natural processes. Quite rapidly, he realized that illness very often followed injury, be it traumatic injury or chronic injury.

"Andrew Taylor Still had been an MD for ten years when a devestating personal tragedy convinced him to stop prescribing the crude drugs of his day and seek a more effective method of medicine.

Believing there must be a better way to heal the sick than introducing toxic substances into the body, he embarked on a life long quest to decipher the riddles of health and disease, life and death. Combining the latest scientific knowledge with revolutionary intuition that the body innately contains all the remedies needed for curing, he developed a drugless method of healing effective across the whole disease spectrum."

​-At Still, From the dry bone to the living to the living man.  John Lewis​
Osteopathy is based on FOUR main Principles

  1. The body is ONE complete unit of function.
  2. The body is self-healing and self-regulating.
  3. Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
  4. Rational treatment is based on the above principles.

​​"An Osteopath is only a human engineer, who should understand all the laws governing his engine and thereby master disease."
​​
- AT Still
"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease"
​​​
-Thomas A Edison

​​"To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease."
 "Find it. Fix it. Leave it alone."
