Zach Petropolis

Registered Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

BSc Kinesiology/Athletic Therapy 

Zachary began his multicultural education at Acadia University where he focused on merging the varsity coaches and support staff from each of the nutrition, athletic therapy, and strength and conditioning programs.

His studies took him to London, UK, at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. Zach was able to perform thousands of hours of hands-on dissection, supervised clinical rotations, plus independent research data collection and analysis.

Zachary is currently finishing doctorate degrees in Osteopathy and Naturopathy, while completing his PhD from the National University of Medical Sciences in Spain.

Zach was born and raised on the East coast of Nova Scotia and has competed internationally for both squash and swimming. Zachary continues to seek challenges for fun, in attempt to improve upon his own dysfunctional patterns when hiking, climbing, swimming, and cycling. When he has free time, you will find him in the backyard building and exploring with his dogo, all while shamelessly pattern watching.
