Geneviève is continually amazed by the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It’s that sense of excitement that has driven her long and varied career in natural healthcare – and that still drives her in her work as a Manual Osteopathic Practitioner and Clinic Owner at Full Circle Health Network. She loves being able to think through anatomy and come up with treatments that really “fit” her clients and she is happiest when she has empowered clients to take charge of their own health.
Geneviève opened the original Full Circle Health Network in 2010, which then offered Registered Massage Therapy and later, Classical Osteopathy. In 2014, Full Circle Health Network expanded and opened up in the beautiful Woolen Mill building into a much larger and more elegant space – it was the best move she ever could have made! Since then, Full Circle Health Network has continued to expand its services, attracting some of the best practitioners in Kingston working in the field of complementary healthcare.
Geneviève holds a Masters in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences and an Honours Bachelor of Science in Health Studies and Gerontology from the University of Waterloo. She has a 2200-hour Massage Therapy Diploma from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, where she pursued additional training in pre- and post-natal massage care, including high-risk pregnancy care. Clinical experience includes work at the Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, ON, where she provided massage in the antenatal and postpartum units. She has taught Clinical Massage Therapy at Trillium College, and previously worked as a fitness instructor specialist (Can-Fit-Pro), “Varsity” Athletic Trainer, and Ergonomic Contractor and Health & Safety Specialist.

There is something that lives within each soul that demands to get out, to be realized, to be fulfilled. For Andrea, that is working with individuals on their path towards healing.
Each person and their path are unique. One commonality amongst all, is that each person has an innate capacity to self-heal. Andrea feels that addressing all components of the individual; the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, is necessary to bring the individual back to their natural state of being, and back home to their holistic self.
Since childhood, Andrea has felt compelled to work in a helping capacity, bringing her into Social Services in her late twenties. Andrea worked as an Employment Advisor at KEYS Job Centre, which often entailed guiding people on their journey through the very challenging and emotional rollercoaster ride associated with unemployment. After 16 years, Andrea knew that she was being called to something different, and it was then that she moved out of employment and into holistic wellness.
Andrea has been teaching yoga and meditation since 2009, however she was able to embrace these teachings in a more full-time capacity in late 2016. In addition to yoga and meditation, Andrea began her training as a Reiki Practitioner in 2008, completing her Karuna Reiki Master training in 2010. Andrea has often used Reiki in her classes, as well as on family and friends, and now in her private practice at Full Circle Health Network. Andrea feels very honoured to share this ancient healing art with others, to help facilitate an environment where people can access their own capacity to heal.
Andrea is also driven, due to the loss of her mother to Ovarian Cancer in 2013, to work with individuals who are facing a cancer diagnosis. She attained specialized training in Yoga to work with this population, and now teaches classes at KGH, as well as through her company, Into The Flow Yoga and Wellness, at Full Circle Health Network.
Victoria Mokriy has been practicing physiotherapy since 2009. She is passionate about restoring previous function and quality of life. After completing her Master’s of Physical Therapy at Queen’s University, Victoria practiced in Ottawa in several sports medicine clinics. Her initial practice focused on orthopedics/manual therapy, acupuncture/dry needling and post-concussion management. Beginning practice in Kingston in 2014, her treatment expanded to include vertigo and dizziness rehabilitation, temperomandibular (TMJ or jaw) dysfunction, and functional movement assessments/treatment.
Victoria’s approach to client care is to conduct a thorough assessment that allows for treatment plans individualized to the patient’s needs. She believes that with the correct tools and direction, the human body is able to achieve wonderful things! Her goal is to ensure that you regain as close to normal function as possible. She has found in the past that her clients are most successful when a consistent plan of care is created by herself and the client. Victoria knows that physiotherapy works, if you’re willing to work at it!
Victoria holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Ottawa, and a Master’s in Physical Therapy from Queen’s University, and has maintained a practicing licence with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. She spends her free time with her family, including her husband and young daughter. She also enjoys running, strength training and playing soccer.
Rehabilitative Manual Therapist
Amanda views the human body as a perfect creation, self-healing, self-aligning, and self-regulating. As a student of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, Amanda feels that the wealth of knowledge gained is best put to use to help her clients achieve their overall health goals, through an intuitive and tailored approach.
Amanda’s studies began in 2014 at the leading school of Classical Osteopathy, and continue today. Her fresh personality, and calm demeanor, is the cornerstone of her approach to her clients overall wellness. Amanda credits her passion for learning, and helping others, to her love of horses and her rescue dog, Forrest.

Laura is a University of Waterloo graduate currently attending the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, in her third year. She discovered osteopathy during her undergrad studies and never looked back. She knew immediately this was how she wanted to help people, through an integrative natural approach to healthcare. Laura was excited by the way the body was able to heal itself and the only apparatus she needed were her hands.
Laura is enthusiastic to be able to use the body’s anatomy and physiology to create individualized treatments based on what her patients need. She wants to share with people just how amazing their body can be.
Laura believes her relationship with her horse has given her a patient, quiet and intuitive approach to osteopathy and will continue to use this approach while working as part of the Full Circle Health Network team.
