Pain and Motion osteopathy clinic Vancouver manual osteopath Vancouver | Unit 129 - 970 Burrard street, Vancouver, BC
  • 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.’

– Hoba Chenari



Being passionate about the human body and its dysfunctions, Hoba started his path to explore the human body by studying medicine at the age of 18 at Guilan University of medical sciences.
