Osteopathy is a whole body approach to manual treatment which takes into account personalize history. Osteopathy is a natural medicine which includes the philosophy that the body has a innate ability to self-regulate and self-heal. Osteopathic practitioners use a gentle hands-on approach in order to optimize these self-regulating mechanisms.

I’m Robin Young, the proud founder of Robin’s Nest Family Care. Health and Wellness has been a guiding focus in my life since high school. I suffered from lower back pain during this stage of life that led me to seek physical therapy treatment to allow me to continue my active lifestyle. While receiving treatment, I sought to work at the same clinic to better understand my body and navigate my journey back to health. Working at the physio clinic as a Kinesiologist was when I was first introduced to Osteopathy. Even with my history of working in multidisciplinary practices alongside numerous alternative practitioners, ‘Osteo’ was a whole new world to me. I decided to give treatment a try and my chronic, high school back pain dissipated with one 60-minute session! My amazing results led me to pursue this field of study, further strengthen my healing ability/therapy background, and the rest is history
