Enjoy Massage?

Then consider becoming a manual osteopath.

Massage is one of the many techniques manual osteopaths use to treat pain. If you enjoy massage, you would love a career as a manual osteopath....

Manual osteopathy is one of the top 25 occupations in demand in Canada (as reported by CIBC). There is a severe shortage of manual osteopaths in Canada. Ontario needs 2,500 more manual osteopaths. Currently there is a waiting list to get osteopathic treatment across the country. In Halifax patients wait up to 6 months, in London (Ontario) the waiting list is over a year. 

By becoming a manual osteopath you help Canadians have access to this wonderful effective health profession.

There is zero unemployment in this profession as all graduates find employment or open their own clinics. Over 95% of insurers in Canada accept manual osteopathy. New graduates are generally hired at $30 per hour and established practitioners with over 5 years of practice make on average approximately $90,000 per year.

National Academy of Osteopathy offers a diploma program in osteopathic manual practice (DOMP) that takes from 4 to 8 months to complete, depending on your prior education (we offer in-campus in Toronto as well as online programs worldwide).

Tuition starts from $5,026 (set to increase by 10% in 2015). NAO is the largest provider of manual osteopathic education (hands on treatment, no surgery, no medications). It teaches in 65 cities across 35 countries. 

NAO is the first and only osteopathic school to be accepted as an affiliate member of Ontario Hospital Association (OHA).

We are accredited by a number of organizations including the Ontario Osteopathic & Alternative Medicine Association, College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario, Ontario College of Osteopathic Rehabilitation Sciences, Council on Manual Osteopathy Education, International Osteopathic Association, Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board & the International Osteopathy Examining Board amongst others.

NAO graduates are permitted to work in all Canadian provinces, and elsewhere internationally including USA, Europe, Africa & Asia.

國家整骨學院NAO是加拿大安省注冊學校提供4-8個月在校或在線課程. 學生遍佈世界各地; 65個城市及35個國家包括: 中國, 台灣, 香港, 加拿大, 美國, 英國和澳洲等等. 同時設有英文, 中文和其他語言課程選擇. 各地醫療市場對整骨治療師需求很高, 並由加拿大帝國銀行(Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce)選為加拿大市場職業需求量最高25名之一. 所有學生畢業後均順利就業, 受雇, 或開設門診. 據知, 在哈理法斯(加拿大)整骨治療需要排期6個月; 在倫敦(加拿大)需要排期一年; 在烈治文山(加拿大)需要排期2個月; 在越南需要排期3星期. 由此看來, 整骨師在各地嚴重短缺. 在加拿大更需要最少3000多名整骨師加入醫療行業.  一般整骨師平均收入為90,000加元, 而剛投身整骨行列的時薪為$30加元. NAO是被安省醫院協會(Ontario Hospital Association)唯一認可會員資格的整骨學院, 也同時被其他組織認可包括: 安省徒手整骨師院校COMPO(College of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners of Ontario); 加拿大徒手整骨療法考試委員會CMOEB(Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board); 國際骨傷科協會成員(International Osteopathy Examining); 徒手整骨教育委員會(Council on Manual Osteopathy Education); 康復科學學院(Ontario College of Osteopathic Rehabilitation Sciences). NAO並與西班牙國家醫科大學聯盟合作加設在線課程. 現在國家醫科大學巳提供33個在線醫科大學課程, 其中骨科課程佔9. 持有國家整骨學院畢業文憑可在各地就業包括加拿大各省份, 中國, 香港, 台灣, 英國, 澳洲, 美國及世界其他地方. 在加拿大, 大部份保險公司均有整骨治療津貼. 報名從速, 成為注冊整骨師, 展望將來!

Osteopathy TV is almost ready

Osteopathy TV is on its way to start its first show hopefully within the next two month.Many of the National Academy of Osteopathy graduates would participate in Osteopathy TV programing, which will be a free and great advertising and name and face recognition for them in their community and would stand them apart from competition.

Congratulations Raybe. You made us so proud!


Dear Dr. Pourgol,

I am pleased to inform that the 'quality training' of your prestigious Academy has shown to be very fruitful. I had an interview, the owner was amazed by the techniques- I gave him a treatment session by your wonderful techniques  - and I received an offer to work two days a week, as a start. More shifts will be added to my schedule in the health clinic after I get to know the team more and become familiar with the workplace. (I am replacing a manual osteopath who used to work in clinic for years).

Thank you in advance for your expert teachings which always stemmed from your wisdom.
