Marc Cote M.OmsC

Practitioner of Osteopathy 

Marc is a graduate of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy and is a member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association. Marc began his journey as a certified yoga instructor in 2008 and was certified in Pilates in 2014. He spent years travelling, teaching and practicing yoga daily. Witnessing his students improving their health by changing their biomechanics through yoga, was the most invigorating aspect to teaching the practice. Drawing inspiration from the notion that improved structure creates improved function, Marc sought out a way to achieve these results in a more hands-on individualized approach, to make optimal health accessible to everyone. This led him to study Osteopathy at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy. At the recommendation of his teacher, he began a student practice at the Village Healing Centre in 2013, the beginning of his second year of school. Having treated patients for over 4 years at Village Osteopathy, Marc has gotten to know and love the Roncesvalles community and is proud to provide care for all patients of the GTA.

Julie Krize M.OMsc

Practitioner of osteopathy

Her own experience of an osteopathic practitioner was fascinating, balanced and effective, and inspired her to pursue her education in Osteopathy. Julie continues to study functional anatomy, physiology and body mechanics to provide highly personalized care for each individual she treats. Her interests beyond her osteopathic practice include zen based meditation practices, awareness around mental health, and living a socially active and engaged life.
