About Pacific Osteopathy
Pacific Osteopathy is a patient-centred health care clinic, providing osteopathic manual therapy, which restores function by treating the causes of pain and imbalance.
Pacific Osteopathy is owned and operated by Jenny Trost, who has worked in complementary health care for 25 years. Originally, she practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine (DTCM). In her final year of acupuncture school, she was introduced to craniosacral therapy.
Jenny’s interest in craniosacral therapy eventually led her to pursue osteopathic training at Le Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques. Through 5 years of course work, she learned much more than craniosacral therapy. After the course work, she conducted a research study on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, thus meeting the requirements to obtain a Diploma in Osteopathy Manual Practice (DOMP).
Passionate about treating the nervous system, Jenny has completed post-graduate courses in osteopathic treatment of the nervous system, including neuroscience, peripheral nerves and endocranial spasms. The endocranial spasm courses are about assessing and treating dysregulation in the central nervous system.
Jenny has also trained as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). Somatic Experiencing is trauma-resolution work, enhancing regulation of the autonomic nervous system. The principles of SE inform her practice.
For physical discipline, Jenny practices yoga and Pilates. For fun, she cycles to Sidney and kayaks with her husband.
Jenny is a professional member of Osteopathy BC.
What is functional manual therapy?
Functional manual therapy is about treating the whole person.
It is integrative, anatomy-based healthcare that promotes wellness and treats illness by focusing on the unique aspects of each individual. It uses personalized interventions to restore structural, physiological, and psychological balance
Functional manual therapy recognizes the interconnectedness of organ function. Chronic illnesses often involve dysfunction in multiple body systems—musculoskeletal, digestive, cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, etc. The autonomic nervous system provides a link between the systems.
With functional manual therapy it is possible to treat specific problem areas while maintaining a focus on the body as a whole.
