Our Practitioners

Jessica Warrener, M.OMSc, GDAO, BA(HK)

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner (Human and Animal Osteopathy)

Jess grew up in Ontario, and was always very involved in athletics. Her passion for sport led her to the East Coast to pursue a Degree in Human Kinetics from St. Francis Xavier University and a position on the Varsity Track and Field team. Jess suffered from an unresolved injury, that ultimately led her to Osteopathy, and a desire to enter the profession after being fascinated by its ability to treat the body as a unit.

Jess completed her Masters in Practice Diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (M.OMSc) at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton, ON. Jess is excited to call Nova Scotia home again and is accepting new patients.


Kara Muhlhausen, R.Kin, M.OMSc, GDAO, B.Sc (HK)

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner
(Human and Animal Osteopathy)

Kara grew up in Belleville, ON as an active child, taking particular interest in a variety of sports. Later on in life, while pursuing a degree in Human Kinetics from the University of Guelph, she sustained an injury playing varsity Basketball. This injury led her to Osteopathy, and she was mesmerized by its approach to healing. After university, Kara worked as a Kinesiologist and Strength and Conditioning Coach, but couldn’t help feeling that there had to be something more she could be doing for her clients. Therefore, in 2020 Kara obtained a Masters in Practice Diploma of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (M.OMSc) from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton, ON. Kara feels excited and grateful to be able to offer Osteopathic care to a variety of patients in the Hammonds Plains Community. In her spare time, you can find Kara outside exploring the trails with her two dogs Ash and Kali.


Jessica Stackhouse, M.OMSc, GDAO

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner
(Human and Animal Osteopathy)

Jessica is a graduate from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy located in Hamilton, Ontario. As a kid, it was her love of animals, particularly horses, that sparked her interest in anatomy, biomechanics and physiology. This led her to a career in Osteopathy, which meant she can help both people and animals alike. Jessica is also a graduate of the Canadian Academy of Animal Osteopathy.

Outside of treating patients, Jessica also assists with teaching palpation at the Canadian Academy of Animal Osteopathy.


Victoria Duffy, M.OMSc

Manual Osteopathic Practitioner
(Human Osteopathy)

Victoria Duffy grew up in PEI where most of her free time revolved around horses. Her passion for health and wellness has been a lifelong interest and is ultimately what led her to Osteopathy. She attended the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy where she completed her Master’s of Osteopathic Manipulative Sciences (M. OMSc). Here, she found her biggest passion as she learned how to make connections between anatomical discord and a patient’s symptomatology. She is excited to provide her patients with the opportunity to regain their health through osteopathic treatment.

Outside of the clinic, Victoria can be found walking her dog, trying to make baking recipes “healthy”, going to pilates and travelling!
