FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

For any additional questions email info@howclinic.ca

WHAT TYPES OF HEALTH INSURANCE DO YOU ACCEPT?

We do not bill directly, however, provide you with everything you will need to submit receipts to your insurance provider.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I GO IN FOR A TREATMENT?

If this is your first treatment we'll have a brief discussion about your health history and then the practitioner will explain a bit about what they will be doing. Once you're comfortable we'll begin. Each treatment is specific to the patient/case but generally, it will be long, slow stretches and deep breathing. The treatment is very gentle and there is often no pain throughout.

Please wear comfortable clothing (athletic attire, sweatpants). Anything that you are mobile in.

WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY FIRST VISIT?

IS OSTEOPATHY BENEFICIAL TO KIDS AND ADOLESCENTS?

Osteopathy is very beneficial for children - they respond very fast to treatment. The younger you are the more adaptable your hard and soft tissues are so the treatment sessions will be shorter and the results will last longer.Osteopathy is especially great for newborns. The birthing experience is very traumatic and a delivery that is too long or too short can have lasting effects. If your child is colic there is a reason and osteopathic care can treat that. It is always a good idea to bring your newborn in for a session and get everything checked out.All my paediatric treatments are half price.

CAN I GET TREATED WHEN I'M PREGNANT? AFTER I'VE GIVEN BIRTH?

Yes. You can benefit from Osteopathy at minimum 8 weeks of pregnancy, and at least 6 weeks post-pregnancy (especially if by c-section). It is also very beneficial if you are having trouble getting pregnant and for newborns/infants who have trouble with latching and breastfeeding.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I REQUIRE?

This is patient by patient and case by case. My general rule of thumb is the first few treatments will be every week, then we'll start to space it out every two weeks and the end goal is to come in every month for check-ups. Maintaining the check ups is vital to your overall health and well being.
