I studied in two other osteopathy colleges for close to three years before switching to NAO


We graduate successful manual osteopaths! Here is a beautiful letter from one of our students at NAO and NUMSS who is also a member of OCPCC:

Choosing National Academy of Osteopathy was the best decision I made. I studied in two other osteopathy colleges for close to three years before switching to NAO. The other colleges had too much theory, a lot of useless philosophy, not enough techniques, and no business lectures at all. They were also a lot more expensive than NAO.

I am always grateful for having Dr Pourgol in my life. Through his 200 business lectures, he shared his experience and knowledge with me and other students. These lectures changed my life for the better.

After NAO I enrolled at the National University of Medical Sciences to obtain a DO while working as a manual osteopath in York region with Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada (clinic # 60). Since 2 years ago our clinic received over 116 positive reviews from patients! We are in the top of the Google review list in East Gwillimbury and Newmarket area!

I want to thank NAO for teaching me osteopathy and Dr Pourgol for making me a successful manual osteopath. I want to thank NUMSS for its amazing DO program and OCPCC for becoming the leader in osteopathic care.

If you want to become a successful manual osteopath NAO is your best choice. No other osteopathy college in Canada teaches you about business. No other school teaches you so many osteopathic techniques.

I’ve never been to a manual Osteopath until now. I’ve had terrible aches and pains for over 10 years and have tried many different therapists over the last 2 years; ranging from chiropractic, massage, and lastly 6 months of physiotherapy which have all helped in their own way and still use some of them, it seems that after 4 visits now that my chronic pain has left. I have never felt so reassured, not rushed and confident that I will make a full recovery as I have with Ali Haghighi. He’s honest about what he can and cannot fix, what I need to do i.e stretches. He takes his time, he comes across as very humble, very confident and I truly feel his professionalism and authenticity. I’ve been sharing my experience with everyone. Give him a try, what do you have to lose but less pain! Thanks from Barb in Holland Landing!
Really satisfied with my experience, very friendly staff and easy to book appointments which is key for me. I’ve been going to see Ali for osteopathy to try and heal my back pain. Ali is so thorough with what he does and takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he is doing it which is extremely helpful. He makes you understand your body and how to heal it. I felt so much better after just 1 appointment. It’s a very relaxing office and I highly recommend you give them a try!

I booked an appointment the end of Dec with Ali who does Osteopathy. My main concern was lack of mobility in my neck and daily headaches. In 3 sessions my neck has mobility again and the headaches are gone. He is now working on better mobility in my hips and movement in my wrist from a break. Each treatment has positive results. I highly recommend seeing Ali!

I came to the clinic with restricted range of motion in my left knee accompanied by sharp pain. I had been struggling to walk for 3 weeks. Two osteo visits later, the symptoms were gone and I’m back to being pain free and physically active.

Love osteopathy. I can’t believe how terrific treatments have made me feel (had back surgery at 21).
