Prior to his Osteopathic education, Mohannad earned an Undergraduate degree from McMaster University, majoring in Psychology and Human Behaviour. He has special interests in rehabilitation, pediatrics, education, and athletics which lead him to the science of Osteopathy.
After graduating university at Wilfrid Laurier with a double major in Psychology and Biology, Greg enrolled in a 2 year program at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. It wasn't until he suffered a neck injury in a car accident and then a tear to his medial meniscus during a hockey game that he was introduced to the profound healing power Osteopathy could awaken in the human body.

Osteopathy focuses on facilitating the health of joints and muscles through non-invasive manual therapy, helping to strengthen the framework of the body, and acts as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medicine.
By working with the interrelated systems and functions of the human body, osteopathic manual therapy can return the body to normal health so it can self-heal and self-regulate.
Osteopathy is focused on treating the cause of discomfort, not the symptoms.
This discipline is a whole-body approach to health, working from in-depth knowledge of how the body is a connected unit. By treating the body as a whole we are able to facilitate change in restriction and allow for optimal functioning of our body on all levels: fluid exchange, muscular and bone movement, and nerve signalling.
Osteopathy—Treat the Cause, Not the Symptom
Osteopathic care focuses on the root cause, and not just the symptoms. Osteopathy does not treat specific conditions or symptoms, instead Osteopathic Practitioners treat the whole body as a functional unit, removing strain placed on the anatomy in order for the physiology to function at optimal level.
