100 Years Old Patient

NAO Graduate Treats 100 Years Old Patient

A letter from National Academy of Osteopathy graduate Jay David:

Hi Dr. Pourgol,

Just to drop you a note hello.  The resilience of the human body still seizes to amaze me after practicing manual osteopathy now for several years.  I registered my very first 100 year old patient this weekend. Superseding another current female elderly patient who is 90 years old.

Mrs. Dela Cruz was born in November 30, 1914.  She was brought to the clinic by her daughters hoping that I would be able to assist and perhaps relieve her of pains stemming from an arthritic shoulder joint.  Mrs. Dela Cruz very calmly and quietly allowed me to complete the shoulder techniques, often giving me a slight glimpse of attention with her nearly perfect vision (she doesn't use reading glasses).  At the end of the treatment, she softly but sternly said two words "feels good" - music to a manual osteopaths' ears.

Hope you are keeping well.

Best regards,

Testimonial From a Manual Osteopath

 A testimonial from a National Academy of Osteopathy student:

NAO's professors are all brilliant in what they teach.

Dr. Shahin Pourgol, Amir Kazemi, Dr. Amir Ghafari, Abazar Habibinia, Darren Wigginton, Pamela Crosson-Fournier

I learned a lot from them and I loved my experience in NAO.

I met many students from all over Canada and U.S. in the campus with many different academic backgrounds, all sharing their knowledge and helping one another. Chiropractors, Medical Doctors, Massage Therapists, Kinesiologists, Yoga teachers, Acupuncturists, Professional Athletes, Nutritionists, Naturopathic Doctors, Psychologists, Rolfers, Fitness Instructors and many more.

NAO has the most complete, practical and diverse curriculum. From Joint Mobilization, Muscle Energy Techniques to Visceral and CaranioSacral, Soft Tissue Therapy, Nutrition, Therapeutic Exercises and Orthopedic Tests to the best information in Clinical management and Marketing.
It is a great opportunity to learn so much in an intensive and cost effective diploma program.

Thank you NAO for providing this opportunity worldwide, to train professional and successful osteopaths, to increase public awareness of osteopathy profession and to serve humanity through making this holistic and drug free, art and science accessible to all, around the globe.
