About the Therapist

 

Francine Wright (nee Jeffrey), D.O.M.P., D.Sc.O., R.M.T. (Honours), B.D.Comm.

OSTEOPATHIC MANUAL PRACTITIONER
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (Dr. Vodder Certified)
MASSAGE THERAPY
 

Francine is a graduate of the Collège d'Études Ostéopathiques' Halifax Campus. Her private practice - Francine Wright Osteopathy - is presently located at 15 Dartmouth Rd., Bedford, Suite 200.

She has been an active health practitioner since 2001 when she graduated with honours in massage therapy from ITC Northumberland College in Halifax. Soon after she continued her education in Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy.

Francine's treatments are based on the idea that the whole body is inter-related. The goal of each treatment is to assist the body to restore balance, thus allowing a state of greater health to occur. She treats with her hands using a variety of non-invasive techniques, focusing on treating the cause of dysfunction and pain, rather than concentrating on the symptoms. Her constant strive for continuing education gives her a vast array of tools and techniques to design the most beneficial treatment plan for her patients.

She is an active member of The Nova Scotia Association of Osteopaths (NSAO), Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (OAO), and the Massage Therapy Association of Nova Scotia (MTANS).

Osteopathy is a gentle way to regain or maintain your highest level
of physical function and emotional well-being.

Osteopathy- Treat the cause not the symptoms!
