Kimberly Robertson is a graduate of Osteopathy from the College d’Etudes Osteopathique (CEO) in Halifax. After 6 years of study at the CEO she completed her Osteopathic Thesis on The Effects of Osteopathic Treatment of the Pelvic Floor on Nonspecific Low Back pain.

When appropriate she can incorporate Exercise Programs, Ergonomic Assessments, Rehabilitation, and Yoga.
Born and raised in Eastern Ontario, Kimberly has always had a passion for health and wellness. As an avid athlete in a variety of sports all of her life, she was drawn to movement, rehabilitation and aiding to improve the health of those around her. Having had many injuries of her own she was drawn to this field while gaining knowledge and awareness in her own body through rehabilitating her own injuries. Upon graduating from the BSc Kinesiology program at Dalhousie University in 1999, Kimberly returned to Ontario to practice for 12 years in Ottawa. Over her 12 years in Ottawa she expanded her practice to include becoming a Yoga teacher (500 hr YTT), furthering her education in the areas of rehabilitation, disability management and athletic training. She continues her quest of continuing education and exploration of holistic health practices.
Having a deep passion and interest in holistic health and wellness, Kimberly works with the interrelationships within the body to achieve balance. Addressing the main cause of dysfunction can then allow the body’s natural healing process to do its job. She has a whole body approach to treatment, which includes gentle structural and functional hands on techniques, such as craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, osteoarticular mobilization, balancing the nervous system, lympatics and circulation. She treats a wide range of patients including adults, babies, children, pregnant women, pre/post natal, and the elderly. She has a special interest in treating children, head trauma, whiplash, low back pain, post surgical recovery, rehabilitation, and visceral issues.
Kimberly is ready to inspire others to experience the same benefits that holistic health practices have brought her in her personal life. Kimberly is a kind and empathetic practitioner who truly invests in her patient’s health and wellbeing. Through her holistic approach to treatment each patient will benefit from all of the expertise that she brings with her from her pre Osteopathy practice in order to best manage their condition, maximize recovery and create a lifestyle that will optimize their health and wellness.
When not at the clinic her other interests include a love for cooking, yoga, pottery, outdoor sports/activity, and spending time with family and friends.
