Suffering from Chronic Pain? We can help.

Did you know manual osteopathy offers one of the best treatments available for chronic pain?
A study done at University of Texas showed 50% of people with chronic back pain fully recovered with just six osteopathic treatments.

We do what seems like miracles on a daily basis. Many of the cases we see are last resort cases who had years of unsuccessful treatments. If you have chronic pain, if no other treatments have helped you, give us a try. You can live pain free through manual osteopathy.

We specialize in helping people with chronic pain in their joints, bones, nerves and muscles, such as pain in back, neck, knees, shoulders, hips, jaws, elbows and feet.

With 176 clinics in Canada, US and elsewhere, we are the largest chronic pain clinic in the world. All our manual osteopaths are licensed chronic pain specialists who have taken a postgraduate fellowship program in chronic pain management.

Osteopathy, founded in USA over 140 years ago, offers hands-on treatments that are gentle, safe, pain free and last about one hour on average.

In Canada most private health insurers cover osteopathic care provided by our manual osteopaths. In US and other countries there is no insurance coverage for manual osteopathy. Treatment fees vary in each clinic.

To find a clinic nearest you please visit www.osteopathypainclinic.com. To make an appointment with one of our chronic pain specialists please contact the practitioner directly.

10% Reduction in US Federal Corporation Tax Rate (2018)


The annual US federal corporation business tax has been reduced by 10% in 2018. This is such a good news for those who own a business in US.

The annual federal corporation tax is now 21%. In 2017 US had one of the highest corporation tax rate in the world! Now in 2018 it is more in line with Canada and other countries which is a great news for business owners. Great job US! And thank you!

Aside from federal corporation tax, states also charge corporation tax which ranges from zero (in states like Nevada) to 9%. Florida has state tax of 5.5%.

Currently the annual average total US corporation tax rate in 2018 is 26.6% (similar to Canada) but ranges from 21% to 30% depending on which state you do business.

Ignore Criticism

Spent your time and energy on expanding your business instead of answering criticism.

Never argue with people as it is useless. Instead use your time and energy on improving yourself and your business. Let your success be your answer to criticism.

I usually ignore criticism and let it energize me to do better in business. I work hard and let my success show my answer :)

You can never change the mind and opinion of a person by arguing with them. So it is best to ignore them and get energized to do better in business! Use their negative energy to get more positivity.
