Educational Director & Instructor

Maureen Hannah Maher

Since Maureen began teaching, she found that not only does she have a natural gift for it (her parents were both teachers, so let hear it for genetics!), she found that she also holds a great desire to give back to the community and a profession that has been so fulfilling to her, and share over fifteen years of acquired experience and knowledge.   Maureen brings extensive knowledge in Osteopathy  to her educational seminars.  Throughout her career, Maureen has been an accredited member in good standing in several provinces across Canada, as well as overseas, including being an Associate Overseas member of the Australian Osteopathic Association (AOA) since 2008.  After undergoing accreditation evaluation for foreign trained Osteopaths in Perth, WA, Maureen was offered a practice in one of Singapore's leading Osteopathic Clinics, giving her the distinction of having been the first Canadian trained Osteopath to be approved to practice  in South East Asia.   Right before the worldwide economic collapse, Maureen was offered a position in Shanghai China, which required accreditation with the GOSC, UK, which she underwent, but as prevailing economic conditions worsened, the position was put on hold, and Maureen then settled in Toronto, Canada, where after reluctantly accepting a poorly paid teaching contract, her students began asking her to design courses in more specialized subjects within Osteopathy.  It was not long after that Maureen founded the Center for Continuing Education where she continued to innovate every day!Maureen has collaborated in the curriculum design with various new Osteopathic schools, and teaches continuing education seminars across Canada and Europe.  Her students say that Maureen's teaching style is animated, engaging, but most importantly, informative.  Her gift lies in communicating complex theories in simple terms and analogies.  Her students come away with a clear grasp of Osteopathic concepts for treatment, and practical knowledge of how to apply them.  Students who enroll in any of our continuing education seminars can contact Maureen at any future date with clinical questions.  As a result, many Osteopaths worldwide still consult with her today regarding challenging Osteopathy cases.
