Meet the Team

Allison McIlwraith, B.Kin (Hons), R.Kin, M.OMSc, Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
Allison was born and raised in Flamborough and competitively danced in the area for many years. She is an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, local dance teacher, Kinesiologist, ergonomist, and industrial sports medicine professional. She has her degree in Kinesiology from the University of Toronto and her Master in Practice diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy. She is a Registered Kinesiologist with the COKO and OKA and a member of Osteopathy Canada (OSTCAN) and the Ontario Osteopathic Association (OOA). 
Allison came across the term Osteopathy early in her undergraduate studies, and was immediately captured by the practical concept of structure governing function and treating the body as a dynamic unit of function. The body has innate self-healing and self-restoring mechanisms which can be optimized when obstructions are removed. It is the perfect marriage of Allison’s love for the art of human movement and biological science. She looks forward to educating and helping a diverse range of patients to restore their health.
Lauren Fisico graduated from the Kinesiology program at the University of Windsor in 2017 and is currently a Registered Kinesiologist and a student of Manual Osteopathy at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy.  Lauren is also a Certified Personal Trainer and has been for the past five years.
Lauren has always had a passion for health and fitness and had an active childhood playing sports.  She was also a competitive cross country and track runner in both high school and university.  Through her own personal experience of competing and staying active, she has come across many over-use injuries that have limited her performance on the track and other activities of daily living.  She knows how it feels to be injured and unable to perform any activity to your fullest potential.  Lauren also knows how good it feels when injuries and limitations are taken away through exercise or treatment.
These experiences have inspired Lauren to help others feel better about themselves in the gym, to perform better at their sport and to improve their overall strength and conditioning for injury prevention.  Helping clients feel better, reach their own goals and be able to comfortably perform daily activities without pain is a very rewarding experience for Lauren.
Lauren is looking forward to working with people of all ages and fitness levels to help you reach your goal to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Brendan Ireton-Paul graduated from The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy with a Diploma in Osteopathic Manipulative Theory and Practice in 2008. He followed up his studies with a Master in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences which he completed in 2010. He is currently a member of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners.
Brendan developed and uses an approach to patient recovery called “Corrective or Osteopathic Fitness”. This method helps patients rebalance and restore injuries and dysfunctions to health, using Osteopathy as well as integrative and functional exercises and training methods. Injuries are strengthened and repaired while actively cooperating with the rest of the body, restoring optimal structure and function.
Brendan is continually and repeatedly voted first place year after year in the Guelph Mercury Readers Poll, Guelph Tribune Readers’ Choice Awards and many others for Osteopathic Therapy. He opened Guelph Osteopathy in 2011 and is proud to still be providing quality osteopathic manual therapy and corrective fitness to his many patients.
