Osteopathic Practitioners do not diagnose or practice medicine. Always consult a physician for any disease concerns prior to exploring osteopathic care. Osteopathic practitioners use hands on techniques designed to alleviate tension and improve circulation and do not attempt to treat disease.

Ivan Duben, D.O.M.P
Osteopathic Practitioner
My focus in on improving blood flow in order to reduce symptoms of pain or tension. I am especially interested in improving lymphatic flow and opening detoxification pathways as a solution to many chronic issues. Loss of adaptability in the body is responsible for many of the issues we attribute to ageing  and my role is to remove patterns of tension in the organs and tissues of the body.I have success with liberating the deep restrictions inside the body as they are often the source of muscle and nerve pain. Lack of optimal blood flow creates patterns of inflammation, tension, and tissue contraction. When the body is under tension the added stressors of life only add to the symptoms. Let me help you remove the patterns and restore your sense of well being.
