Meet Julie

Practitioner of Osteopathy

Julie Krize M.OMSc

Julie is a graduate of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy and is a member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association. She is a Certified Yoga Instructor and Art Historian, and through a weaving of these global experiences Julie became interested in the artful mechanics of the human form, and the body's self-healing mechanism. Along her own journey towards health, Julie sought out conventional therapies and had no lasting results. Her own experience of an osteopathic practitioner was fascinating, balanced and effective, and inspired her to pursue her education in Osteopathy. 

Julie continues to study functional anatomy, physiology and body mechanics to provide highly personalized care for each individual she treats. Her interests beyond her osteopathic practice include zen based meditation practices, awareness around mental health, and living a socially active and engaged life. 

 

What is Osteopathy?

Founded by Andrew Taylor Still, MD in the 1870’s.

noun

“Osteopathy is a scientific method of healing by skillful manipulation of the human body, based on a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology, by which the operator is enabled to trace effects to their cause and remove them, thus restoring harmony throughout the body – which is health.”

– BA Duffield, early American Osteopath

Kind Words

“When I started seeing Julie Krize 3 years ago for my menstrual issues and poor digestion, I was not sure what to expect. I had lost my period due to poor nutrition and was trying everything to get it back. After 4 treatments with Julie, I was amazed when my cycle came back. Since then, I make it part of my wellness routine to incorporate regular osteopathic manual treatments. Julie has helped me with everything from constipation to neck stiffness. I recently convinced my boyfriend to start seeing Julie for his chronic hip and back pain (he’d been getting chiropractic work done for years but wasn’t improving), and after two treatments with Julie his hip felt better than it had in years.

There is something about the way that Julie heals with her hands and her intuition that I have not experienced from other healthcare practitioners. She treats every patient with a deep understanding of what is going on with their body’s unique anatomy and spinal curvature. I know that I would not feel as healthy as I do today had I not found Julie all those years ago.”

“The thing that makes Julie stand out as a body worker is that not only does she have the book smarts from years of school, but she’s also armed with a strong intuition. She has helped me through some structural work that has had a profound effect on my well being. As a Pilates teacher, I rely on my body for work, and I trust Julie fully to keep me aligned! I send everyone I can to her.”

“I have been going to Julie for osteopathy treatments regularly for three years now and it has been the best choice that I could have ever made for my spinal issues regarding scoliosis and for the general upkeep of my posture. Julie is a wonderful practitioner,  healer, and caring person who genuinely wants to keep my body functioning with easy motion and good organization.

I highly recommend this person and her wonderful work in osteopathy.”

“I wish I could write the testimonial in French, then you would get more patients that you can take! Everything that you have done for me has helped me and it is also helping me to function better. It’s not only your professionalism but also your positive approach and your enthusiasm are at the highest level. The different exercises that you suggest also contribute to live a healthy life.”

To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.
