Alternative Therapies

OUR APPROACH
​​Conventional medicine is an essential part of your health care treatment protocol. Chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are the standard. Alternate therapies can fulfill your other many needs associated with healing, vitality, and improved quality of life. 

These therapists are willing to work together, with you and your health care team. Working towards your common healthcare needs and goals.

Imogen Wood
Osteopathic 
Practitioner

My name is Imogen Wood. I am the co-owner of Kamloops Osteopathy and I work as an osteopathic practitioner treating chronic and acute injuries.

Many of my patients are post cancer diagnosis. When you are diagnosed with cancer it can stop you from entering social gatherings, doing sports or even trusting your own body to just walk down the street. I consider it my job to help return my patients back to balance: restore muscle strength, flexibility and confidence in ones’ own body to help them back to the activities they love to do.
