Lauren LoPresti

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner M.OMSc, OOA cert

What is Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Osteopathy is a client-centered discipline that is based on understanding the relationship between structure and function in order to enhance the body’s inherent ability to heal. It relies on skilled manual therapeutic techniques to assess and treat the client, guiding the natural self-healing properties of the human body.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners understand there exists a relationship between the bones of the body and all tissues that surround it. Our bodies are designed to move and therefore any restriction of motion can have a negative impact on the patient’s overall health. Osteopathic Manual Therapy helps to restore motion, relieve pain and stimulate the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate.

Who can benefit from Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Due to the gentle and individualized nature of this therapy, Osteopathic Manual Therapy is beneficial to all age groups, from newborns to the elderly, from high performance athletes to those more sedentary, from acute to chronic conditions and everything in between.

About Lauren:

Lauren earned her Masters in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in 2017. Prior to this accomplishment, she acquired a BA Honors Specialization in Kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario in 2008 that allowed her to work as a registered Kinesiologist while continuing her post-secondary education.

Lauren’s fascination for the human body stems from her extensive career competing and working as a dance teacher. Understanding the movement capabilities of the body while layering it with a deep knowledge of the anatomy and physiology helps to give a biomechanical edge to her treatments.

Lauren utilizes the Osteopathic principles to correct any structural imbalances in order to promote the patient’s own ability to self heal and self-regulate.  Lauren’s treatments focus on correcting any structural dysfunctions to improve function and mobility of the joints while relieving any obstruction to the nerve, artery, vein and lymphatic pathways. When structure is corrected, function can be restored and the body’s innate ability to heal and maintain balance can be restored.

Appointments and Fees:

Initial Assessment: 60 minute consultation that includes a health history intake, structural assessment and manual therapy treatment: $120

Follow Up Treatment: 30 minute reassessment and osteopathic manual therapy treatment: $80

Alex Sellors, MSW, RSW
Sellors Counselling & Trauma Therapy


I am a Registered Social Worker and therapist. I completed my master’s degree in social work in 2017, but have been working in the mental health and social services field since 2014. My professional background includes counselling and psychotherapy, as well as hospital acute care and emergency crisis services. My passion and area of specialization is PTSD and trauma. I am trained and experienced in treating various forms of trauma and I have the unique experience of going through my own trauma recovery journey.

I offer both general counselling and trauma therapy. My approach is not only trauma-informed, but trauma-focused if that is requested. I adhere to the 3 phase model of trauma treatment, which requires safety and stabilization (i.e.. learning to cope with distress) before moving into trauma processing. My preferred approach is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), however I often integrate other modalities, including DBT, parts work therapies, somatic approaches, and brief solution focused therapy.

Working through trauma is not easy, but I believe it is possible.  The goal in trauma treatment is to not only learn to cope with difficult emotions and memories, but to heal from it as well. My hope is to provide a space where we can safely address the challenges you are facing and work towards improving your quality of life.  If this sounds like something you are looking for, please reach out and we can arrange a free 15 minute telephone call to see if we would be a good fit.

Fee: $160/50 min session
