Kevin completed his bachelor degree in Exercise Science at Concordia University with a specialization in Athletic Therapy. He quickly realized his passion for manual clinical work and completed his studies to become an Osteopath at the Collège d’Étude Ostéopathique de Montréal. His thesis was done on “The Influence of Osteopathic Treatment on Neurophysiological and Behavioural Capacities in an Active Population”.


As an Osteopath we are always looking to rid the body of barriers that are preventing the natural healing process of the body. Kevin treats patients for various conditions such as sport injuries, back pain, concussions, digestive problems, and much more.


One of Kevin’s other passions was to develop educational seminars for our patient base and friends to better understand the amazing machine called the human body.


• What does the physical body need to stay optimal

• The importance positive thought has on our health

• The impact various foods have on our health.


Jason Turnbull graduated from Concordia University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science and specialization in Athletic Therapy and obtained his national certification in June 2002.


Jason continued his studies at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto, ON and completed the five year curriculum in April 2010. He defended his thesis entitled “The Effects of Global Osteopathic Treatment on Constipation as measured by the SF-36 and the Bristol Stool Scale”, on November 1st, 2012 and was the recipient of the William Garner Sutherland Award for his accomplishments in clinical research.


Following his University graduation in 2001, Jason worked at Seaway Physiotherapy Centre, a private clinic located in Prescott, ON. Jason gained tremendous experience in his 6 years at the clinic, as it enabled him to see and treat a diverse population with comprehensive skeletal injuries. It was during his time at Seaway Physio where his passion for manual therapy emerged.


The concept of Vitality Multitherapy Clinic has been an interest of Jason’s for many years- an inviting environment where patients are personally cared for in all aspects of their life through various disciplines of health care.


Although my first priority is to relieve a person of discomfort and pain, that is only the beginning.

I teach that health is more than being symptom free and that a high level of wellness can be achieved by nearly everyone if given the right guidance.

Once immediate pain or symptoms have been eliminated, attention may then be focused on strengthening the body, increasing flexibility, boosting energy, enhancing sleep, increasing one’s resistance to disease and developing emotional and physical hardiness, all of which lead to a more positive attitude, improved relationships and a healthier life.


Robust health (wellness) encompasses a great deal more than just not being sick.

My enthusiasm for health and well-being was developed over many years of playing elite level sports. I grew up competing in hockey, soccer and rugby and was fortunate to have my passion lead me to playing collegiate level athletics.


It was during these athletic endeavors that I realized how much overall health and fitness plays a role in determining one’s performance.

Eager to learn more about the relationship between health and peak performance, I completed a Bachelors of Science in Biology and earned a Doctorate in Chiropractic at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia in March of 2005.


I furthered that search by later obtaining my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist qualification through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

For the past 7 years I have had the opportunity to gain experience in the chiropractic field, working with a wide variety of people of all ages and backgrounds, from athletes to weekend warriors and most recently spent 2 years in Vancouver, British Colombia working under the guidance of Dr. Kenneth Mikkelsen (Chiropractor for the Canadian National Swim Team).


I am excited to have made the move to back to the West Island and look forward to helping you travel the path from pain relief to wellness.

Valérie graduated from McGill University in 2013 with a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy in addition to a Bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation Science. She is a registered physiotherapist and a member of the Ordre Professionel des Physiothérapeutes du Quebec.


Throughout her internships, she realized that her passion was focused on pain relief,  treatment and prevention of further injury.  Valérie also has a strong interest in manual therapy.  She has completed her levels 1 and 2 in manual therapy and plans on completing further levels as well. She also has been educated on the use of Rock Tape for different types of injuries and she has followed a weekend class on the prevention of running injuries.


As Valérie played soccer for the Quebec provincial team, she has always had a special interest in sports medicine. Valerie volunteered for two years as a student-therapist for the Mcgill Redmen soccer varsity team where she learned stability tapings and first aid.


The vision presented at Vitality meshed well with Valérie’s beliefs as the focus is concentrated on looking at the individual as a whole and finding the cause of the issue.

Outside of the clinic Valérie enjoys snowboarding, running, cycling and cooking.


Riley was first introduced to the philosophy of osteopathy through fellow team member, Dr. Sean Landry, when she became his patient in 2012. She was amazed by the dramatic effects manual therapy had on her personal health and healing. The philosophy of osteopathy resonated so much with her beliefs that she made a career change from marketing and enrolled at the College D’etudes Osteopathiques de Montreal.  She joined the Vitality team as an osteopath in October 2018.


Riley has completed continuing education on the osteopathic approach to:


  • pediatrics
  • obstetrics
  • gynecology
  • stress
  • concussions
  • athlete care


Riley will be presenting her case study on the osteopathic approach to endometriosis in the fall of 2020. While she enjoys a diverse patient base, since starting her career as an osteopath Riley has taken a keen interest in the effects manual therapy can have on women’s health. She strongly believes that it is important for more research to be done surrounding women’s health to erase the embedded belief that pain and issues affecting our pelvis are normal. Throughout her career she hopes to create more dialogue surrounding women’s health, a domain that is too often silenced. There is ample research showing the effectiveness of manual therapy in helping women with: infertility, c-section recovery, delivery outcomes, pain & other symptoms during pregnancy, endometriosis, painful periods, absence of periods, painful intercourse, incontinence just to name a few. She looks forward to working with you!

I have been employed at Vitality since 2017, I am so fortunate to work with such great people and clients.  


When I am not working you can find me exploring the outdoors and watching my kids hockey and soccer games.


His interest in the field of Integrative medicine began years ago when he resided in Italy. After experiencing the remarkable benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine first hand, Antonio’s desire to learn was ignited and has since steered his life completely through to this direction.


Dr. Bruno Zappia M.D., T.C.M. Dr., well known as one of the main founders of Chinese Medicine in Italy, was predominantly responsible for instilling passion and curiosity in Antonio. Dr. Zappia has been a mentor to Antonio, taking him under his wing and teaching him the philosophy and wisdom of this ancient art.


Antonio obtained his degrees between Italy and Canada, however, attracted by the open mindedness of integrative medicine in North America, he chose to establish his practice Ottawa.


Constantly researching and studying new techniques to reach new boundaries of medicine, he strongly believes that any disease can be treated and that the success over any ailment comes from the proper knowledge applied. He is continuously amazed by the effectiveness of all sciences of healing and its power to help people find relief on the physical level and beyond.


Although Antonio enjoys treating all types of diseases, he is particularly interested in acute and chronic pain, chronic degenerative conditions, digestion disorders, and anything that challenges his knowledge and pushes him to new understandings.


Antonio is also deeply involved in meditation, Pranayama techniques, and the study of Advaita Vedanta (transcendental eastern philosophy).

Andrea has always had an interest for health and wellness, but it was a referral in osteopathy in 2013 which inspired her to enroll at the Collège d’Études Ostéopathique where she completed 5 years of osteopathic studies.


Throughout her 3 years of treating patients at the college’s external clinic she got the opportunity to treat people from all backgrounds and for a large variety of health issues and injuries. She holds specific interests in women’s health issues, in the impact of stress on the body’s physiology, as well as in the somato-emotional connection.


An avid hiker, runner and beginner in yoga, Andrea understands the importance of an active lifestyle and aims to help her patients return to their favourite activities without pain or discomfort.


Her approach is based off the understanding that no two people are the same which is why every session is tailored to the individual’s needs and goals, with the understanding that these will change and evolve overtime.

Rama is a practicing Reiki Master and Reiki Teacher who is eager to pursue her passion after having worked as an accountant for many years. Rama was led to Reiki after seeing only minor progress with her own ailments from conventional western medicine. Having felt the revitalizing transformation from this energy healing treatment, she wanted to impart this healing medium to others.


In 2016, Rama was attuned for a Level 1 Certification. Her significant experience in channeling and transmitting this energy to individuals all over the world led her to reach the final level of Reiki Master & Teacher in January 2020.


Her vast experience comes from adapting to fluctuating social circumstances, such as, healing through remote sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rama has treated clients experiencing acute or chronic physical and mental conditions such as depression and anxiety as well as hospice patients, pregnant women and children. Her approach is intuitive, understanding that people are nuanced and diverse, and she adapts her approach accordingly to understand the root cause of pain.

My name is Natalia Rodriguez, I have a great passion to help others and to share my knowledge and learning for the health and well-being of people. 


I am humbled and grateful for having the opportunity to help minimize people's pain and contribute to their improved health.


I have a degree in Physiotherapy, 2007 and a specialized graduate diploma in physical activity with a focus in Ergonomics, 2012, both qualifications are from Colombia. In pursuit of furthering my knowledge and experience in musculoskeletal disorders, most recently I qualified and am registered as a Massage Therapist in Quebec. I found this to be an amazing complement to my prior education and experience. I love to do different trainings and courses that give me a better approach in manual therapy.


All of this combined has given me a more holistic understanding and approach to the human body. It has only further reinforced to me the importance and need to have balance in life, physically, mentally and spiritually. As a result, I love to meditate daily and practice yoga.


My goal is to offer you a session where you can connect with your body, mind and soul, for a moment of relaxation and disconnect, to benefit from the effects of therapeutic massage. I like to add cupping and myofascial release techniques among others according with each person needs.

Catherine was always interested in health and well being. She grew up very conscious of the importance of taking care of your physical body through nutrition and physical exercise. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science at Concordia University with a specialization in Athletic Therapy. She started treating athletes but soon realized that physical injuries were always intertwined with an emotional state that needed to surface and be addressed. She was then guided towards osteopathy, a somatic-emotional approach, and completed her studies to become an Osteopath at the Collège d’Étude Ostéopathique de Montréal.


A mother of three, she does her best to balance her passion for her work and motherhood by staying active and grounded. Her interest in healing and freeing the body and the person from constraints brought her to study New German Medicine to add to her tools.
