How We Help

Katharine is skilled in many areas, with her primary specializations in concussions and minor head and/or neck injuries, headaches, and migraines. She also works with shoulder, wrist, hand, and foot pain. She’s here to help relieve your pain, allowing you to live your best life.

“Katharine Liberatore is the best Osteopath in Ontario and I don’t say this lightly. I have been seeing Chiropractors, Physio Therapists and Osteopaths for over 20 years in multiple cities including Toronto, Kitchener Waterloo, Guelph and London Ontario. You will not find a better Osteopath it’s the best money you can spend. In Feb 2020 I fell from a ladder and she fixed my knee with a single visit I was back walking and the swelling in my leg was down by more then half. She gave me follow up work to do and I did it and it worked. I recently had pain in my tailbone from a hip/lower back injury it took a handful of visits and I couldn’t believe the difference. She has even done work on my head and neck which has helped lower my general anxiety. Her understanding of the mechanics of the body is phenomenal and I have not met anyone who was more genuine in wanting to help me not be in pain. If I could give her 10 stars I would. The clinic is clean, calm and friendly and they are always on time.”

Navid’s main interest in practicing is pain management and trauma related to various diseases/disorders/disabilities by using acupuncture (different needling techniques), acupoints stimulation, moxibustion, Tui Na, cupping, and Gua Sha, leading to an energy flow (Qi) through the body, thereby reducing pain and improving health. However, in evaluating acupuncture treatment outcomes, many factors are crucial including; patients input and subjective experience, practitioner’s intake and examination, laboratory tests and medical device measurements.

It is obvious that various pathological conditions related to different human body systems (nervous, respiratory, digestive, musculoskeletal, etc.) are determined based on all the above factors, and no single factor determines the effectiveness from the practitioners’ perspectives. We will achieve this goal by interactional process of co-constructing understanding of the patient’s body conditions through better communication skills, and reaching scientifically sound clinical outcomes in compliance with treatment plan and high patient satisfaction, a root solution that makes your body stronger and healthier.
