Sean W. J. Goodwill
DOMTP, MOMSc., BCC, MCC, OSTCAN cert
Classical Osteopathy And Consulting Services
Appointments are available upon request over zoom for counselling (chronic pain, family, marriage and life skills enhancement) and consulting services for osteopathic practitioners seeking assistance with clinical management, patient care, osteopathic principles and practice. Sean and his wife, Sue, are on sabbatical from providing osteopathic treatment until later in 2023.
Sean began his career in health sciences studying natural medicine and herbology in 1999 before graduating from ICT Kikkawa College with a diploma in massage therapy and Suikodo shiatsu in 2003. Following this, he attended McMaster University to study contemporary medical acupuncture, advanced anatomy, and dissection studies. In 2005, Sean pursued the art and science of osteopathy at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy and graduated with a Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Theory and Practice (DOMTP) in 2008. After completing his thesis on osteopathic education (principles and practice), Sean obtained a Master in Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (MOMSC) while receiving both the John Wernham award and the A.T. Still Medal of Honour.
Between 2010 and 2014, he taught osteopathic principles and practice, wrote four books, and worked as the Educational Coordinator at the CAO. During these four years, Sean additionally held the position of President of the Ontario Osteopathic Association (later known as OSTCAN) while working in insurance relations and developing ethical practice management procedures. In 2014, Sean retired from teaching, stepped down as President of the OOA, and moved to London with his wife, Sue, and their two children, where they opened a multi-disciplinary clinic at 747 Hyde Park Rd. On September 18th, 2020, Sean returned as an elected member of the OSTCAN Board of Directors and resumed his previous position as President of the Association. During this time, he worked with a strong and dedicated Board of Directors to radically change the political realm of OMPs to be delisted under personal care services and legally recognized as an independent healthcare profession under the Ministry of Health and existing schedule. In June of 2021, the OSTCAN board successfully won their case with the ministry so that OMPs could legally work during lockdowns and help those in need of essential clinical care during that challenging time in history.
Over the past several years, Sean has completed courses throughout the USA and Canada focusing on leadership skills, self-development, coaching, mindfulness, and pain management programs. Since the spring of 2018, Sean has focused educational pursuits on the individual’s mental, emotional, and spiritual challenges during the healing process. During this time, he furthered his education by completing a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in counselling at the Canada Christian College, where he was also ordained. Through these additional levels of education, Sean offers counselling services apart from his osteopathic practice, which focuses on chronic pain management, life skills, pastoral care, family, and marriage. Consulting services draw upon Sean’s experience in clinical practice management, years of teaching osteopathic principles and practice, and overall treatment approach.
