Ernest Geid, Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

Ernest Geid

MD, M.Sc, DOMP, DO

Ernest Geid is a Canadian Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, he is the owner and founder of “Osteopathy First”, he has vast hands-on clinical experience in Osteoarticular techniques, Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. Ernest holds a Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (DOMP). He is delivering Osteopathy Techniques using Multi-Modal Approach and European Style Osteopathy. Ernest is an International Medical Graduate Doctor and holds a Master of Science in Rheumatology. In addition, he holds a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) from National University of Medical Sciences in Spain.

Ernest strongly believes in the 4 principles of Osteopathy:

  1. Each body’s structure supports the body’s functions. If a structure is out of place, the body will not function at its best.
  2. The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular and neurological – must be preserved and maintained.
  3. The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems work in harmony.
  4. When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.

Ernest as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner identifies, assesses, and treats the body’s structures and rhythms using a gentle hands-on approach. This fundamental technique is called osteopathic palpation. Osteopathic palpation is what makes osteopathy different from other forms of therapy.
