The First Honorary Diploma of NAO

Since 2010, this is the first time we have issued an honorary Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (DOMP).

This was done due to the request of one of our alumni in Ottawa. This manual osteopath treated a young lady for chronic pain. This 19 years old patient was so impressed with manual osteopathy that she decided to enrol at National Academy of Osteopathy to become a manual osteopath. Unfortunately she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. This made her dream of becoming a manual osteopath impossible.

We however decided to issue an honorary diploma to her. This was done at the NAO graduation ceremony in Toronto on February 16, 2019.

The first honorary NAO diploma is issued to Ms. Ailish Shelby Devine of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Osteopathic Psychosomatic Techniques

NAO professor Elias Abdel-Ahad (physiotherapist/manual osteopath) conducted a hands on workshop on osteopathic psychosomatic techniques at National Academy of Osteopathy in Toronto.
These techniques are amazing for chronic pain management and our students loved the techniques.
We recommend all manual osteopaths to take a psychosomatic continuing education program with this professor if they wish to add a new tool in chronic pain management to their practices.
To receive information about the next continuing education program available to all manual osteopaths please contact the professor directly.
These are some testimonial from NAO students:
Sean Waldie It was a wonderful session. Truly his practice and teaching is unveiling the deepest levels of interactions that often sit in the indefinable realm of the body . Elias gives guidence and opportunity to truly experience listening. This in combination with the practical techniques he has incorporated will make for an instantly attainable and integrative component for any manual therapist.
Thank you again
Johanna Ruth Kenworthy An incredibly beautiful and transitional space created by each and every soul. Thank you Elias, for guidance on the journey into our new chapters. Blessings everyone 🤗💖!
