Adrienne Weaver DOMP ~ Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
Originally from Weaver Settlement, Nova Scotia, Adrienne Weaver is our Manual Osteopath. She began her post secondary studies at St. Francis Xavier University, where she graduated on the Dean's list in 2017 with a bachelor's degree of Sciences with a major in Kinesiology. She then continued her education at the National Academy of Osteopathy in Toronto, obtaining her Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice in 2018.
Adrienne danced with La Baie en Joie, a local Acadian step dance group, beginning at the age of 11. With them, she had the opportunity to perform at the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo on many occasions, as well as internationally in France and in Germany. One of her most cherished experiences was when she had the opportunity to perform for the Queen in Halifax, June of 2010. Highland, the style of dance she practices most now, she began at the age of 10. She became a highland dance teacher through the Scottish Dance Teacher Alliance in 2011, and held session while at home, between University semesters. She hopes to soon open a Highland dance school in the area to pass on her love of dance to others.
Adrienne believes that Highland dancing has led her to where she is today, as she learned the realities of pain and injuries and the work that is required to accomplish goals in life. Adrienne began her education in Kinesiology and Osteopathy knowing that she wanted to help people live a pain free life.
Adrienne considers herself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to find a career as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, a modality that she is passionate about. She continues on her journey of education through the Collège d'Études Osteopathiques in Halifax and will continue learning every day of her career.
