About The Founder
Hi! My name is Meagan Roback and I am the founder of Whole Person Method (WPM). I’m also a mother of 3 beautiful children, and a trained and practicing Registered Massage Therapist based out of Ottawa, Ontario.
In my early years of practicing, I noticed that there was quite a significant gap between professional practitioners and holistic healthcare. I was inspired to develop the Whole Person Method (Levels 1 to 4) in an aim to bridge this gap and share my effective therapeutic approach with a diverse range of practitioners.
My hope is to encourage a variety of practitioners to discover what it means to take a holistic approach in their everyday practice and to see and feel the joy in ongoing personal and professional growth and development. All course levels are taught by me and more information can be found on my Courses page.
Whole Person Method’s Mission
Part of our mission at Whole Person Method is to inspire and empower others, opening the eyes of practitioners to the possibilities that exist and in turn, giving their clients/patients hope. At the end of the day, we want to help you help your client to come out of their session better than they were coming in, regardless of how large or small this improvement may feel and/or appear.
This approach to care is a platform designed to apply your already well-developed techniques in a manner that makes them more effective. It is built on intention setting and truly seeing the ‘whole person’ that is in front of you.
First, by creating an environment focused on specific intentions, you will help your client/patient foster resilience, which will significantly impact on their outcome. Next, you will see that your client/patient is not merely a human body presenting with a condition, or diagnosis. An individual’s reason for seeing you (the practitioner), is complex and layered, and must be treated as such. Rather than applying a generic solution to treat their diagnosis, we provide guidance on how to treat the individual as a whole, within your scope of practice
WPM will teach you how to harness your intentions and apply this whole person approach to be able to better help your client, by inspiring hope and fostering resilience.
My Own WPM Journey
On a more personal note, as I was studying to become a practitioner, I was also on my own health journey. Until recently, I preferred to keep my experiences private - that was then, and this is now. A number of years ago, a switch was flipped and I began to understand that keeping my story behind closed doors was not only holding me back, but also my clients. What many of you may not know is that I have quite a history of injuries and traumas. I can honestly say that I have experienced being the client/patient and can empathize with how overwhelming it can be to try and navigate a complex health system to find solutions that not only work, but are also enjoyable, enlightening and highly effective.
I was inspired to develop the Whole Person Method approach when I ultimately arrived at a crossroads in my health journey. At this time, I was faced with the decision to either start my path into the medical healthcare field, or to explore the unknown in the alternative healthcare field. In the end, I chose the unknown alternative healthcare journey.
With this experience in mind, I began to develop and eventually share this person-first approach with other practitioners so that they could better help others find their path to better health.
Besides Whole Person Method, I co-own and operate Infinity Chiropractic & Wellness with my partner. We are both incredibly passionate about what we do and are always looking for ways to continue to grow and develop our minds, bodies and spirits, while enjoying the experience of life.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you, and I invite anyone who is interested in learning more to sign up for Level 1 of the four available WPM levels.
Yours in health,
Meagan Roback, RMT
