About Monica Noy

BSc (Ost), MSc (Rehabilitation), Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

I have over 20 years experience in manual therapy treatment, teaching, advocacy, and research. I aspire to provide everyone who comes to see me effective choices in managing their symptoms and conditions.

You're the expert in your experience, and I work collaboratively with you and your team to provide skilled hands-on treatment, and where helpful, information, resources, advocacy, and goal planning for recovery and management.

Since graduating from McMaster University with a Masters in Rehabilitation, I'm excited to announce I've joined Sheridan College in helping to develop and create content for the new Honours Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy. My specialties in education are pain and evidence-based practices. As well, as VP of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners I advocate for high standards of education and patient care in the profession in Ontario, Canada, and internationally.

I have a few aging cats that keep me on my toes, but they love the garden as much as I do!
