Massage therapists interested to study in-campus can attend the York University Heights campus of NAO in Toronto. Optional practical technique classes (for online students) are provided in Toronto and elsewhere.

NAO has graduated many manual osteopaths in Canada in the past 4 years. Over half of the manual osteopaths in Canada are our alumni. Our alumni are permitted to work in all Canadian provinces, American states, and all European, African & Asian countries (In Canada & USA our graduates must call themselves manual osteopaths or osteopathic manual practitioners as the term osteopath is reserved for American style osteopathic physicians who also do surgery and prescribe medications).
NAO is an accredited manual osteopathy college, teaching in 54 countries, that is accepted by many associations, such as Ontario Osteopathic & Alternative Medicine Association (that is accepted by most insurers), College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario, Asociation des ostéopathes Regroupement des Intervenants et Thérapeutes en Médecine Alternative, Ontario Association of Osteopathy & Alternative Medicine, Alliance Canadienne de Médecine Alternative , British Columbia College of Osteopathic Rehabilitation Sciences, Collège des Ostéopathes Canadiens, Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board, International Osteopathy Examining Board, International Osteopathic Association, Society of Osteopaths of Canada, Tribal Health Care Administration & Licensing of the North Carolina Nottaway Tribal Community, Ontario Association of Osteopathic Practitioners, Ontario Chamber of Commerce, & Alberta College of Osteopathic Rehabilitation Sciences amongst others.

Our students are also eligible for full scholarships from the Metis Nation of Ontario and the WorkBC program of the Canadian government. $4000 in scholarship is also offered under Youth Employment Program. 

We are registered with the Ministry of Employment & Social Development of Canada. As a result the Revenue Canada would give up to $5000 in tuition and text book credit to Canadian students. Our tuition is also tax deductible as a business expense. 

Manual osteopathy is one of the top 25 professions in Canada as reported by the CIBC. There is zero unemployment in this profession. Average income is $90,000/yr. It is also the highest paid health profession high school graduates can enter directly without any university or college prerequisites.
A 2012 survey indicates that manual osteopathy is the #1 choice of Canadians for low back pain relief as compared to physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture and medication.
Here are letters from two massage therapists who have completed the Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice program of NAO.

" Good evening Dr. Pourgol. I hope all is well with you these days. I see you are making great strides in the Osteopathic world! Congratulations to you and your support team…………….I have been very busy this past year growing my business, lately being booked weeks in advance. The osteopathy component to my practice is definitely what has stimulated the growth in the past year, almost doubling my income in one year! This has happened without advertising, simply by word of mouth, client referrals! And I can honestly say that working with others and helping them cope or relieve their pain is one of the most rewarding jobs I can imagine having. "

Dear NAO
I want to say thank you for a fantastic course. I have loved every minute of it and now looking forward to doing my Bachelor in osteopathy. I have worked as a massage therapist for 6 years and I love my job but I felt more and more I was missing something in the treatments and I wanted to do more. The NAO ad popped up as I searched the net for courses and I am so grateful it did.
Osteopathy is a fantastic profession, gentle but very effective. It is a perfect match to massage therapy and the two makes the perfect couple. I love my job and look forward to going to work every day. I feel so privileged to be able to do this every day. Being able to help people live pain free lives is so rewarding and a true inspiration every single day.
Dr Pourgol have been such an inspiration and I have learned so much that will absolute make me a better therapist and better in business . Dr Habibinia is a fantastic teacher and I have looked forward to his lectures every day and thanks to Luary who has helped me so much and been so patient. I am looking forward to seeing you all in June so I can thank you all in person. Looking forward to another year with you and become the absolute best I can be Thank you.
