Joel Vanderlaan
Manual Osteopath

Joel Vanderlaan discovered Osteopathy while going through McMaster University's Nursing Program. After numerous clinical placements, he felt that conventional nursing was not contributing to the holistic wellbeing of patients in the same way he had seen alternative practices do. 

Looking to fine tune his education with either Chiropractic, Massage, or Physiotherapy, he eventually discovered the field of Osteopathy. The foundational principles of Osteopathy were what some of these other practices had grown from, and the benefits seen by patients was the type of difference that Joel wanted people to have in their lives. 

After graduating in February 2023 with his Diploma of Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, Joel started Grounded Wellness Osteopathy so he could help people work towards a pain-free future.
