Healing & Transforming Your Body From The Inside Out
Collingwood Osteopathy strives to create a safe haven where you can work on yourself physically, emotionally and mentally to help restore true balance in your life. Our goal is to help you reconnect to your true nature to feel better, lighter, and more centered.

To inspire and help create long-lasting change and transformation by combining alternative medicine with traditional healing. We want men, women and children from all walks of life to lead happier, healthier and more balanced lives.
At Collingwood Osteopathy, our philosophy is based on four key principles:
- Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions.
- The natural flow of the body’s fluids—lymphatic, vascular and neurological —must be preserved and maintained.
- The human body is the sum of its parts. Physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cognitive systems don’t work independently, they work in harmony.
- When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.
Osteopathic Manual Practitioners recognize a person as an integrated whole. When all of the body’s components are in balance, a person is complete and in total health. At Collingwood Osteopathy, we work to maintain, improve and restore the normal physiological function of body structures and systems, enhancing the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Using a variety of gentle, hands-on treatments and techniques, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners work to identify and ease restrictions, constrictions and pain; reduce swelling; improve tissue mobility; and promote proper function and healing in people of all ages.

A Letter From Founder Colin McArthur, Manual Osteopathic Practitioner & RMT
To all who are seeking balance and wellness,
My career in manual therapy began as a Registered Massage Therapist, graduating from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 1999. I then completed the 5 year program in manual osteopathic training, at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto.
The treatments I provide, represent the accumulation, and synthesis of knowledge I have gained, through both areas of study. This, in addition to the many continuing educational courses I’ve completed over my 20+ years in practice, offers a truly unique and comprehensive approach to my treatments.
I am a member in good standing, of both the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners (OAO), as well as the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO).
Those with extended health care benefits, may be eligible for coverage through their extended health care plan. Please check with your provider.
I am deeply passionate about all aspects of human health and potential. I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to help you achieve yours!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
