As passionate practitioners in our fields, we believe strongly that in order to increase the credibility and efficacy of our modality we need to develop more great therapists. In order for that to happen, clinics and established therapists have a responsibility to provide opportunities for students to acquire skills training under the tutelage of strong mentors in a supportive environment that allows the student therapist to build their own practice.
Calgary WOW Centre has a long history of providing that haven for promising, budding therapists.
All of our student therapists carry liability insurance that covers their manual practice to the level to which they have been successfully tested by the long established and very reputable Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto, or its affiliate, Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual Practice in Vancouver. Student therapists will NOT provide treatment that is outside of their scope of practice.
NOTE: Our Student Therapists are not yet considered osteopathic manual therapists, therefore any osteopathic techniques that they may employ in your session are NOT covered under Osteopathic Manual Therapy by provincial or their party insurers.
