Luc Ortelli

In his teenage years, Luc discovered that he could relieve headaches and abdominal pains by simply putting his hand on the problem area. This made him feel the calling to go into healthcare and dedicate his life to help other people with their pains. He started this path by doing massage, and Reiki courses, and soon after enrolled in a Bachelor of Physiotherapy program in The Netherlands. After successfully obtaining his degree, he moved to China to be the first international student to acquire the Master of Manipulative Physiotherapy degree at the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong.

After his graduation he picked up his physiotherapy career in Singapore, where he treated a wide variety of patients, and became the personal therapist of players of the National Singaporean football team, and an Olympic marathon runner. He also taught Manual Therapy to physiotherapists, PhD students, and medical doctors in Beijing.

After several years of working along a group of talented physios, he decided to broaden his holistic knowledge and moved to Canada to study Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture at the ICTCM in Vancouver.

In the past 3 years, Luc has been working as a physiotherapist, massage therapist, and acupuncturist, and is in the end-stage of learning the osteopathic Visceral Manipulation techniques, and the acupuncture balancing method technique.

His patients describe him as caring, warm hearted, and giving. A treatment with Luc contains a hands-on approach, where acupuncture, joint mobilizations, deep tissue massage, acupressure, personal advice, and exercises are combined. Due to his extended education in the Musculoskeletal system, he is capable of helping you with many forms of joint, muscle, and nerve pains. He tries to find the links between pain, muscular imbalances, and connections with the internal organs.

If you want to receive a treatment, Luc I available at Aroma Oasis on Mondays, and Wednesdays. You can book online, email, or give the clinic a call to make an appointment.

“Can't tell you how incredibly happy I am to have Luc Ortelli as my Physio/Acupuncturist. I first saw him for a work related shoulder injury and now I try to see him for general health maintenance as often as possible.
He is one of the most intuitive practitioners I have ever received treatments from. I barely have to explain where, what and Luc just zeros in on my muscle tension. He is absolutely gifted in his skill set! He's also genuinely concerned. Your body will thank you for seeing Luc.”

“My son had been in pain for a few years due to a Rheumatological condition. We went to see Luc Ortelli for physio/ acupuncture treatment. Luc was so committed to seeing my son pain free. He worked hard to do the necessary research and come up with a treatment plan. So happy that my son is pain free and medication free. Thank you Luc!”

“Luc Ortelli is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had (and I’ve seen a few over the years)! Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about how the body moves and works from his background in physiotherapy, but he also has the magic touch when it comes to acupuncture. His bedside manner is warm and welcoming and really makes you feel comfortable during treatment. Whenever I come to him with an injury, his treatments get me back to feeling 100% in no time! Would highly recommend it!

“Luc Ortelli is the best! I have had a severe stress and anxiety for the last 4 years. He treated me 99 % in 3 sessions, in 3 days.
No more headache, nor back pain, no more crying, no more stress, no more anxiety. Everything is perfect. I am so grateful. Thanks so much Luc :)”
