Osteopathic Manual Therapists: 
Devin Narsai, B.Sc., M.OMSc is an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner and is a member of the OSTCAN Alberta.  He completed his Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto (Psychology and Neuroscience) and the Osteopathy at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy.  He works with the body's structure (anatomy) to affect its function (physiology) by addressing all tissues of the body (muscles, fascia, ligaments, etc). This allows the body to function optimally and better create a health to self-heal and regulate, alleviating pain and symptoms. Outside optimal range (too much or too little) is where the disease occurs.  Outside the clinic, Devin loves cooking, walks, exercise and having lazy days.
Sarah Senopati, M.OMSc, has always had a natural curiosity for the human body. At her first yoga training, she first discovered Osteopathy and knew that was going to be her path. Throughout her education, she continued to learn about the body not only through her studies, but first hand through teaching a variety of yoga and rehabilitative functional movements (large and small group classes, as well as individual sessions). Sarah believes that the human body is full of health and power, and aims to share this through her craft of Osteopathy. Outside of her clinical practice, Sarah loves nature walks, dogs, experimenting in the kitchen, lounging around at home and cleaning.
