Dominick combines osteopathy, muscle testing and functional medicine with nutrition and lifestyle counselling in his practice and strongly believes that healing is a process in which the patient must take an active role.
He has become disillusioned with modern approaches which simply provide a band-aid approach to mask and temporarily relieve symptoms. His passion is in determining the real, underlying cause of those symptoms and in so doing to bring about true, deep, lasting healing.
Dominick was born and raised in London, England.
He initially studied Managerial and Administrative Studies at the University of Aston in Birmingham, England and went on to work as a marketing executive in West London for three years.
After spending a year exploring the world while backpacking, he returned to the UK to pursue an interest in natural medicine.
He studied at the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy in North London, graduating in 1997 with a BSc with honours in Osteopathic Medicine and a Diploma of Naturopathy.
Clinical experience and training
His clinical practice began at the Aston Clinic in Surrey, England with David Melrose D.O, a herbalist and osteopath. It was here that Dominick first became interested in Applied Kinesiology (AK). In 1999 he undertook training with the International College of Applied Kinesiology and found AK to be a powerful tool for localising and identifying the causes of pain-related disorders.
Dominick regularly continues his training and education so that he can provide the very best care for his patients. He has learned other techniques that are incorporated into his approach to treatment, including Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Nutrition and NAET allergy therapy.
He is also studying with the Institute of Functional Medicine in the US to obtain his certification as a Functional Medicine Practitioner
In 2009, Dominick immigrated to Ottawa with his wife, Sue, where they joined Dr Shahram Ayoubzadeh and his team at the Integral Health Clinic.
In December 2010 he was invited to join the Seekers Centre for Integrative Medicine in Ottawa, along with Sue and Shahram, and worked there for a year before the Integral Health Clinic relocated to Waverley St, Ottawa.
In 2014 he and Sue established the Ottawa Holistic Wellness at MacLaren Street, Ottawa. As well as seeing clients, Dominick is Social Media and Marketing Director for the Centre.
He is currently registered with the General Osteopathic Council in the UK and with the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners.
