Andrew HarrisonA_022_WEB.jpg

Andrew Harrison, R.N, R.M.T, Osteopathy (current study)

Andrew began his career in health services as an RN after completing a Bachelor in Science – Nursing at the University of Toronto. He works at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre as an RN in the Intensive Care Unit.

With over a decade in nursing, Andrew was inspired to study osteopathy after seeking treatment for a long-standing low back problem. In 2012, Andrew began studying osteopathy at The Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto. He is currently completing his fifth year of study. Andrew also attended the Ontario College of Health and Technology and attained his RMT in 2017.

Using a blend of manual therapy techniques, Andrew’s treatments come from a perspective that views the body as one functional unit. As a therapist, he believes a person’s health and wellbeing can be highly dependant on the mobility and tensions held within bones, joints, and ligaments or the deeper layers of fascia and connective tissue. Treatment modalities include classic soft tissue massage work such as Swedish massage, joint mobilizations, or trigger point work, as well as other techniques that may be less familiar. Such as cranial-sacral therapy, fascial therapy, visceral manipulation, muscle energy, and articular normalization.

Andrew is available for treatments Mondays and Fridays at The Vidya Centre.

1-hour treatment $100 plus HST

First session discount $80 plus HST
