Stanislav

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, Acupuncture Therapist

M.Sc. DOMP., R.Ac.P

 

Studying health and fitness has always been an interest for Stanislav and therefore he initially completed an undergraduate degree in Physical culture and sport at the faculty of Sports Medicine in Uzbekistan. Stanislav found the foundation of this program fascinating, and learned about disease in great detail, but wanted to further his knowledge in order to work more closely with athletes. Coming from a professional background in Judoka, he knew how important it is to helps athletes reduce their pain and recover quickly after sport injuries. After graduating University, Stanislav immigrated to Israel and was part of the National Judo teams. With a 5 dan in Judo, he competed at National and European championships in Judo.

His first experience in Osteopathy was under the supervision of a famous professor named Om Kogan in 1991.

 

 

 

Professor Kogan had worked with Russian cosmonauts and had been responsible for their rehabilitation after space flights. Stanislav was strongly encouraged by Kogan to pursue further studies in Osteopathy. The following year Stanislav attended the “University of Traditional Medicine” and “Association of Manual Medicine” in Israel. Seeing the exceptional knowledge base and holistic approach these fields of study offered, he never looked back. The skills he learned in both courses have provided him with a very good breadth of knowledge when treating people. Always looking to learn more, Stanislav went on to study in Canada at the "Southern Ontario College of Osteopathy” and graduated with a Diploma of Osteopathy. He also studied at The Canadian College Holistic Health and graduated with a Diploma of Acupuncture practitioner.  Stanislav began his practice in Canada in 2009 and has a passion for bringing quick results to clients in all walks of life.
