Katie Laurin is Barrie's top osteopathic manual practitioner for babies.

Hi, I'm Katie

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

M.Ost., M.Sc., B.Sc. (Hons)

I love what I do. I've been helping people feel better 5 days a week since 2016 and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

I moved to England to study at the world-renowned University College of Osteopathy. Training abroad was a no-brainer for me. I wanted to immerse myself in a full-time course and soak up as much clinical training as possible. It was a demanding and rigourous 4 years of study, but I came out the other side with a solid osteopathic foundation and the technical skills needed to achieve results with clients from day 1 in practice.

"I'm devoted to helping you move more freely and without pain."

It's hard not to smile when I'm treating babies. 

They experience tight joints and muscles too. These restrictions can contribute to colic and issues with latch and feeding that can be managed with osteopathic care. Paediatrics is a specialty I'm passionate about, which is why I've dedicated over 650 hours of training to helping infants settle into their precious little bodies. I leave every session beaming from cuteness overload.

The most common reason adults book a session with me is for back pain relief. My specialization in helping clients manage sciatica, disc bulges and herniations is grounded in 80 hours of post-graduate training in low back rehabilitation and advanced osteopathic techniques. Supporting clients through recovery and seeing them return to the things they love is why I do what I do.

"We were worried about my son's head shape, so we booked him in with Katie. She was so knowledgeable and supportive. She even showed us stretches to do with him at home. If you're thinking about trying osteopathy for your baby, go see Katie!"
