Osteopathy Health Clinics Need Manual Osteopaths

Osteopathy Health Clinics

I strongly believe that every person should pay 10% of their income to charities. We are blessed to be given so much and it is our duty to give to those less fortunate. 

Since 2012 I have been working on setting up a non-profit company as a mean for the manual osteopathy profession to give regularly to charities. I have finally founded the Osteopathy Health Clinics. This company is set up like a franchise, but it is not a franchised system. Membership in it is free to all manual osteopaths. I will cover all the administrative costs associated with running this company.

My goal is to make OHC the main search portal for patients who look for manual osteopaths.

All I require of OHC members is to give to charities 10% of the fees they charge OHC patients (they keep 100% of the fees they receive from their own patients. They only are required to give 10% of their fees to charities for the patients they receive from OHC).

OHC will be working with the top 100 largest international charities. By donating regularly to these charities the profession of manual osteopathy receives valuable name recognition. And it will be elevated to a new level. The coverage it receives will be priceless. 

This is a win-win situation for all involved. The charities receive much needed donations. Manual osteopathy becomes better known in the public. Manual osteopaths receive more patient referrals. 

Additionally with having a large number of members the OHC will have strong negotiating power to ask for discounts for services and supplies provided to manual osteopaths by vendors. 

There is a limited number of members allocated per each city. Once the quota is reached new members will not be accepted. The first priority is given to graduates of National Academy of Osteopathy and the National University of Medical Sciences. However I invite osteopaths from all countries to apply to assure they reserve a spot in the jurisdiction they practice.

I feel that Osteopathy Health Clinics is destined to become the largest group practice organization in the world. There has never been a company like this. I accept all the administrative expenses of this not for profit organization because I feel OHC can become a great vehicle to elevate the profession to a new level while raising some much needed funds for charities. 

If interested in joining OHC as a manual osteopath feel free to email us at so we could send you information and the membership request application form.
Our website and Facebook page will be set up soon.

Osteopathy Business Tip # 72

Manual osteopathy students without prior health education, can make their tuition, cost of books & meals (meals expenses are partially eligible), travel expenses (cost of car, gas, insurance, repairs, bus tickets, etc) and all other expenses incurred during their education (such as purchasing a computer) tax deductible if they register a business prior or during their education (before graduation). Students with prior health education who have already a business registered can use the tuition and other costs to reduce their taxes. Any expenses incurred in the process of increasing income can be used to reduce taxes.

Ontario Gives $15 Millions for Spinal Research

Thank you honorable,  Dr Reza Moridi, Ontario Minister of Research & Innovation for sharing this news with us.....

Our Gov't is Supporting Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Research

The Province of Ontario is investing $15 million in spinal cord and neurotrauma research. This investment will help researchers move innovative new discoveries from lab to clinic sooner while linking Ontario's world-class researchers with others around the globe.

Investments in this area help position Ontario as one of the world’s top life sciences clusters, as well as help to provide better services, improved outcomes, lower costs in the healthcare sector and create jobs when commercializing new technologies.

This is part of our government's plan to help improve the day-to-day lives of those living with spinal cord and neurological health disabilities.
