Halyna Vreken

BKin Hon, RMT, DOMP, Osteopathic Manual Therapist

Halyna graduated from Hamilton, Ontario's McMaster University in 2007 with an honours degree in Kinesiology before completing her Massage Therapy diploma from Everest College in 2009. She worked for a year and a half in Guelph before she transferred her registration to B.C. in 2010 when she moved to Kelowna and practiced there. In 2016 she relocated to the lower mainland. Halyna completed her studies at the Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual Practice in early 2019 and received the DOMP designation as a Osteopathic Manual Therapist. As such, she uses the titles “Osteopathic Practitioner” or “Osteopathic Manual Therapy." (Not “Osteopath,” as it is reserved by Osteopathic Physicians and the College of Physicians and Surgeons in BC.)

Treatment includes both manual therapy and osteopathic approaches within the scope of massage therapy. Some of the main types of osteopathic influence include osteo-articular mobilizations, cranial-sacral work and fascial release. Other treatments may include working with the viscera (the guts!) in order to help the musculoskeletal system through manual therapy, as well as post-surgical and scar tissue treatment.

Having always been interested in athletics, Halyna grew up playing a number of different sports, particularly soccer and volleyball. It was her involvement in sport and her various injuries (dominated by concussions and subsequent headaches) that directed Halyna to receive many osteopathic, physiotherapy and massage therapy treatments starting at the young age of 15. The experience and success with these treatments sparked her interest in manual therapy in order to help others in pain and/or with symptoms that restrict them from doing what they love. Her philosophy is to treat the body as a whole, functional unit; she helps her patients find balance, achieve postural mobility, and refocus their energy to alleviate both physical and emotional stressors in their lives. As her education continues, Halyna is excited to be able to treat all different types of conditions and dysfunction whether it is sport or life-related.

Halyna-3

To balance all her work and studying, Halyna loves to get out into the woods to restore the mind. She tries to stay active through camping, hiking, biking or anything that gets her out and moving. In the quiet moments you'll find her knitting whatever new project is on the go.
