DARRYL GOMES

I was first introduced to osteopathy by several of my teachers while studying Athletic Therapy at Sheridan College. I was fascinated with the concept of using the hands, without the aid of therapeutic machines, to treat the various tissues within the body in order to promote health.

After graduating as a Certified Athletic Therapist in 2005, I worked at various clinics before enrolling at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto in 2012. Around the same time, I was working as the Assistant Athletic Therapist at Seneca College. During this time, I was able to help the varsity athletes get better by supplementing my treatments with osteopathic techniques. In the private sector treating the general public, I also noted that the general public also got better when they received some type of osteopathic techniques.

I graduated from the 5 year osteopathic program (in-class proficiency plus a thesis defense) and am actively treating individuals with the goal of getting them healthier.

I enjoys playing many types of sports, but I have a great love for hockey, darts, and especially golf. I hope one day to golf at the Masters (a guy can dream), but for now, I will settle for a round just about anywhere. I enjoy keeping things fun, but also recognize when to be sensitive and listen to a person's problems.
