Ali started his professional medical career with Massage Therapy in 2011 at the Wellspring College of Massage Therapy and Alternative Medicine. In 2012 he then began to study for an Osteopathy and Acupuncture Diploma as well. Ali quickly fell in love with the Osteopathic Treatment, as he saw first-hand the power it has to change people’s lives in such a positive way. To further improve his knowledge and experience, Ali continued to study in this field and in 2017 he graduated as a DOMP from the National Academy of Osteopathy (NAO). He once again continued to study in the B.SC (Ost) and Doctor of Osteopathy program at the National University of Medical Sciences of Spain. In 2020 Ali received his Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) Degree.
Ali’s practice focuses on the core philosophy of Osteopathy by treating the structural and functional imbalances in the body that may commonly present as pain and/or discomfort. His primary interests include the treatment of functional acute and chronic pain disorders, as well as obstetrics and pediatrics.
Why does Ali love and believe in Osteopathy so much? Because Osteopathy is a professional and unique system of manual hands-on therapy which is gentle, safe and effective. This is a holistic and drug free therapy, which primarily focuses on the treatment of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, joints, fascia, and ligaments), the central nervous system, and the organs of the body. These unique concepts of Osteopathy are significant. As a result, it is quickly becoming one of most popular treatment options for pain relief and management.
Ali uses a variety of techniques in his treatments including Muscle Energy Techniques, Mobilization, Cranial Osteopathy, Soft Tissue Therapy Techniques, Visceral Manipulation Techniques, Myofascial Release, and Exercise Prescription. A combination of these will not only ease pain but will also help improve the function and alignment of the various tissues of the body (organs, muscles, bones, ligaments, circulatory/nervous system, general health).
He believes that given the right conditions and tools, the body has an amazing ability to heal itself. The role of the Osteopathic Practitioner is to perfect the art of listening to the body and to support it where it is trying hardest to correct itself. Ali’s goal is to give his clients relief as quick and efficient as possible.
Due to his continuous desire for improvement and knowledge, Ali has completed several advanced continuing Osteopathic education and professional development programs.
