- Pain and Motion osteopathy clinic is founded by Hoba Chenari, who is an “osteopathic manual practitioner” or “holistic manual osteopath” in downtown Vancouver. He is offering holistic osteopathy, Holistic wellness, Neurokinetic Therapy, and Craniosacral therapy.
‘As a medical doctor and team doctor, I used to prescribe medications and refer my patients to physiotherapists and osteopaths to pursue their treatments. I was unhappy that I can’t help them myself and can’t check their progress, anymore. Now, I am happy that as a holistic manual osteopath or “Osteopathic manual practitioner” I can assess my patients, help them without medications, and evaluate their progress. It’s a wonderful feeling to see after a few sessions of osteopathy and hands-on practice, my patients can walk properly, get back to the activities they love, and are able to hug their beloved ones, once again.’
