Tanja holds a Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (Canada). She is an Upledger Institute certified CranioSacral Therapist and Teaching Assistant, and is trained in Advanced CranioSacral Therapy, Somatic Release, Neural/Visceral/VisceralVascular Manipulation with the Barral Institute, as well as, Brain and LymphDrainage Therapy with the Chikly Health Institute. She's a certified Infant Massage Instructor and has treated many newborns. Since 2016 she has been working closely with a Whole Body Dentist and Integrative Orthodontist. She is continuously training in various manual osteopathic methods to offer the most effective treatments to her clients/patients in integrative and holistic therapies.
Tanja has been practicing since 2007 when she began her journey of self healing - reversing fetal malposition and decades of medical trauma. Since then she has met many amazing practitioners, teachers, and healers, teaching and/or providing treatment to reverse what she thought was the impossible.

Her latest training in the OsteoDouce method - which is based on Manual Osteopathy performed with hands off the body, with the patient either present on the treatment table, or completely remote - has brought astonishing results to both her clients and herself.
This innovative method was discovered by Jacky Roux, a famous French Osteopath from the Alps. He named his method OsteoDouce, meaning Gentle Osteopathy. Since 2000 he has trained hundreds of people all over France and Switzerland. He passed away in 2017.
Tanja was fortunate enough to find one of his former students who speaks and teaches this method in English to now have the honor of offering this treatment method to her clients.
In OsteoDouce we connect remotely to a body part (bone, joint, ligament/tendon, organ), with the fingers scanning it precisely just as if this body part was in our hands. What we are looking for is the Movement of Life inside the patient's body. When a body part is harmonious, we can feel a beautiful lemniscate in our hands. Physical or emotional trauma in a person's life can limit or completely stop this motion.
Tanja integrates the 8 Energetic Networks from Poyet/Brunel into the treatments.
OsteoDouce focuses on freeing the Movement of Life in the body, allowing for bones, organs, joints etc. to move back into their original position.
OsteoDouce training is based on anatomy and physiology, and the movements of Cranial Osteopathy. It should NOT be mistaken with energy work, such as Reiki, Prana Healing and the like. OsteoDouce does NOT put energy in or takes it out of the client.
Tanja integrates light touch manual therapies to address a full spectrum of conditions in patients of all ages, ranging from newborns to geriatric clients. Sessions are tailored to the client's individual needs. Tanja is blessed with the gift of listening to what the patient's body communicates. She then translates the information and follows the body's lead to find its way back into balance.
Through her training in Manual Osteopathy, Advanced CranioSacral Therapy, Somatics, Neural/Vascular/Visceral Manipulation, Brain and Lymph Drainage Therapy, as well as, OsteoDouce, she has gained an exquisite anatomical knowledge and understanding of the different body systems, and how they work together as one.
