Classical Osteopathy is a wonderful option for people of all ages and abilities. Treatments consist of manual adjustments that are localized and specific and focused on relieving pressures and restrictions.
The practice is based on an extensive understanding of anatomy and physiology and is anchored by four fundamental principles:
➊  the body is a complete unit (mind, body, spirit)
➋  the body is self-healing and self-regulating
➌  the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) are interrelated on all levels
➍  rational treatment is based on these principles

How does
osteopathy work?

Imagine tying a string around your finger. After only a short while, the string begins to affect nerve supply, blood supply and general circulation. If you left that string on for a long period of time, your finger would stop receiving the vital circulation it needs to thrive and the tissue would eventually break down and die.

Osteopathy is all about getting rid of the “strings” in your body. We look to balance restrictions and asymmetries so that every tissue, everywhere, has exactly what it needs to the healthiest it can be. 

Initial assessments include a health history intake and a physical assessment, followed by treatment, and are usually about 50 minutes in length. Subsequent treatments are approximately 25 minutes in length. You are not required to undress for Osteopathic sessions, though it is recommended you wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing, such as yoga pants/shorts and a tank top/t-shirt/sports bra.

All of our Manual Osteopathic Practitioners are registered with OOA/OAO.

Under these associations, they are the most highly recognized by most insurance companies in Ontario, you can check with your private insurance to ensure you have coverage.

Geneviève Zizzo

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner, Clinic Owner
M.OMSc., Honours B.Sc., RMT

About Geneviève

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.

About Robin

Robin graduated from a 5-year Osteopathic degree in Cergy, France. He learned his osteopathic approach based on a holistic vision of the patient. He first fell in love with Osteopathy at 18 years old! His approach is both precise and intuitive, and he likes to explain his treatments to his patients during their consultations.

He also wholeheartedly believes that we can give back great quality of life to the patient, no matter their condition, age, or struggle.

When he’s not at work, Robin loves being in nature and exploring other cultures. He’s also a huge fan of all kinds of music!
