Michelle Durante

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner


Michelle is an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner registered with the Ontario Osteopathic Association (OOA). She completed her Masters in Practice diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (M.OMSc) at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, which teaches Classical Osteopathy through principles-based treatment—meeting all requirements of the 4-year intensive program. Michelle continues to expand her knowledge in functional anatomy, physiology, and osteopathic mechanics to bring her patients the best possible care.

Michelle’s journey in the health and wellness industry began through her studies in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. After completing her undergraduate degree, she knew she wanted to find a specialty focused on helping people live pain-free, healthy lives. In 2016, Michelle completed a graduate program at Niagara College Canada, in Exercise Science for Health and Performance.

Michelle found Osteopathy through her own chronic pain struggle. She tried several forms of manual therapy, leading her to Osteopathic care. It resonated with her as she had found something that provided pain relief. It was also a form of treatment that aligned with her personal values. After some time, she decided to pursue a career in Osteopathy.

With her education, work experience, and passion for helping people, Michelle strives to help her patients in their healing journey.

Away from the clinic, Michelle enjoys biking, hiking with her dog, and, most importantly, time with her family and friends.
