Odile Bigaut CTT, Medical Office Administrator, Receptionist

With more than 25 years experience in customer services, I have always been interested in alternative medicines, and the medical field. I started working with Dr. Thomas, and Danielle as an office administrator, and I have recently completed thermography training under Dr. Alex Mostovoy. I believe thermography assessment is a very useful tool for monitoring your health, and can be used at any age. I have seen the impact this screening has had on many patients in the office. I look forward to expanding my knowledge in the health and well being of our patients, and for ways that I can be proactive with my own health.

Manual Osteopathic Treatment is a form of hands-on manual treatment that is used to eliminate or alleviate somatic (bodily) dysfunctions. These dysfunctions may involve skeletal, joint and myofascial structures as well as the related vascular, lymphatic and neural elements. Stretching, resistance, and gentle pressure work together to promote healing, reduce tension, recover from surgery, lower stress levels, increase mobility, and decrease inflammation. There are three main components of manual osteopathy: musculoskeletal osteoarticulations, visceral and craniosacral.
