OSTEOPATHIC MANUAL THERAPISTS
Chris Reiach, D.O.M.P., Osteopathic Manual Therapist
Chris graduated with a degree in Kinesiology in 2004, and realized he had a deep rooted desire to heal others. He discovered tremendous worth in osteopathic manipulation as a therapy that facilitates the body’s efforts to naturally and gently restore itself to optimal health, and decided to pursue it as his career of choice. Chris is now a D.O.M.P., or Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice.
In 2008, Chris and his wife, Krista decided to make Calgary their home, and moved to town with their son, Kian. Since then, a daughter, Brynn, has joined the family.
Outside of the office, Chris enjoys spending time with his family in Calgary’s many parks and toboggan hills, and snowboarding.
Kathy Teal, M.OMSc, BSc, Osteopathic Manual Therapist
With a BSc. in Exercise Science (Athletic Therapy) from Concordia University (Montreal), Kathy went to complement that degree with successful registration in the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, where she gained further recognition as a Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage & Decongestive Therapist. Today, with her education rounded out with a Masters in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences, she implements a total body approach to adjustment.
Kathy supports her own philosophy of self care by putting the things she most loves, first – her husband and her dogs. Walking, hiking and golfing keep her body moving, her mind clear and everyone happy!
Paul Wagner, D.O.M.P., Osteopathic Manual Therapist
Paul is passionate about movement.
His journey began at Simon Fraser University where he received a Bachelor of Arts diploma in 1988. Paul moved to Montreal in 1989 and from that time on, he worked extensively with dancers and athletes to improve their training methods and to teach bio-mechanics, Pilates, and other forms of training in order to facilitate performance and reduce wear on the body.
He taught in private institutions such as Les Ateliers de Danse Moderne de Montréal as well as at Concordia University in Montreal. His thirst for understanding led him to undertake studies in Homeopathy and then in Osteopathy at the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques where he received his Diploma of Osteopathy in 2006. Paul was also awarded graduating honours for excellence in research in osteopathy.
Since that time, Paul has continued to pursue his studies in areas such as the Muscle and Joint Chains of Godelieve Denis-Struyf D.O. He has trained extensively in advanced Cranial Osteopathy, including work on concussions. Paul continues to study with Master teachers in Osteopathy.
Paul is currently a teacher and overseer for the Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual Practice – Vancouver Campus. Paul worked with the dancers from Ballet B.C. as well as with the teachers of Arts Umbrella until his departure from Vancouver in 2019.
Paul enjoys working with people to help them find a way to work through their issues, and through the use of corrective exercises and understanding of body use, helps patients become more autonomous in their healing process.
In 2019 Paul returned home to his native Calgary and looks forward to working with the Calgary community.
Paul is a member of the Alberta Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists.
Paul has been a registered member of the Society for the Promotion of Manual Practice Osteopathy (BC) and member of the Registry of Québec Osteopaths.
