Doctors of osteopathy, known as DOs, are trained medical professionals who are able to diagnose and treat patients, perform surgery, and prescribe medications, just like a medical doctor. They simply ascribe to a different philosophy of healing.  Osteopathic doctors focus on the whole person, as opposed to simply diagnosing and treating one condition or one symptom. By focusing on the root cause of stress, disease and discomfort in the body, they help each person achieve health and balance by guiding them to use their body’s own natural healing capacity. By addressing imbalances, previous injuries and traumas to the body’s “living anatomy” (the rhythm and flow of fluids, and the structure of soft tissues, muscles, bones and joints) they remove and release impediments to the body’s natural state of wellness and equilibrium. This in turn, helps the body to heal itself.

At your initial visit we perform a detailed assessment and create an individualized healing path for each patient that may include Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, Cranial Osteopathy, Nutritional Counseling, Medical Acupuncture and/or Classical Homeopathy and other aspects of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine.

As licensed Osteopathic Physicians, we can incorporate conventional diagnostic testing and treatment when appropriate, to provide the best of traditional and alternative therapies. This integrated approach allows for complete care and whole body healing to maintain and restore quality of health and life, versus just treating symptoms.

Dr. Swan and Dr. Stanley have each been practicing traditional Osteopathy for over thirty years and look forward to sharing their knowledge and experience with you and your family.

Patient Testimonials

  • Back & Hip Pain

    “I came in for treatment with lower back and hip pain. I had an MRI which my Dr. recommended that I have surgery or shots for. I didn’t feel this was my course of action. I tried Chiropractic adjustments which were painful. My very 1st treatment with Dr. Swan relieved a 5 month off-and-on headache! I began to feel relief for my back, hip and knee with each visit and after 1 ½ months, I’m down to 1-3 on pain scale and almost ready to resume my full scale activities. Dr. Swan is a compassionate, skilled and endearing practitioner who connects with his patients with positive energy!”

  • Lower Back Pain

    “I have had intermittent, throbbing pain in my lower back for over 10 years. I hadn’t heard of Osteopathy, but was willing to try it so I could get a good night’s sleep. After my treatment with Dr. Swan my pain was completely alleviated. I am encouraging my family to come to Bellingham Osteopathic Center and see Dr. Swan. Retired National Ski Patrol member.”

  • Back Pain

    “Before I came in to the Osteopathic Center I had severe back pain each night while laying in bed and could not find a position to fall asleep. I could not get rid of the deep pain within my lower back no matter what I tried: stretches, massages and muscle creams. After just 4 visits (once per week for one month) with Dr. Swan I had no more back pain! I believe it had been 20+ years since I felt pain free, and I have not felt back pain since my 4th treatment which was over 3 years ago. It truly is a miracle!”

  • Neck Pain

    “Throughout my treatments with Dr. Sharon Stanley she has progressively reversed nearly all of my car wreck neck pain (I went through a windshield twice in 1976). From other doctors I would get some relief, but was never pain free until Dr. Stanley began treating me. I cannot believe that I have spent over 30 years searching the planet for someone to help me. Dr. Stanley is a rare find and a natural- born healer. “

  • Migraines

    “Even at the first visit, I was amazed at how she was able to completely, and I really mean COMPLETELY remove all trace of pain. Not only were the migraines resolved in the first visit, but my vision cleared up!”

  • Chronic Pain

    “For 40 years I have had incurable diseases, three with ongoing chronic pain and fatigue. I cannot use pain killers anymore which have caused severe stomach problems and chronic insomnia. Treatments with Dr. Swan began to gradually reverse the pain, fatigue and insomnia. I have enjoyed complete pain reduction without the use of harsh chemical drugs which are difficult for my liver, kidneys and stomach to process. I am in real bliss and total gratitude.”

  • Gastrointestinal

    “I came to see Dr. Stanley as a broken woman. I had severe gastrointestinal problems and frequent bouts of vertigo. I was on a variety of prescription medicines, but my symptoms kept getting worse. With a gentle touch and expert knowledge, Dr. Stanley re-aligned my body and put me back together. I am symptom- free and prescription- free for the first time in 10 years!”

  • Athletic Recovery

    “Sharon is a miracle worker- REALLY! I was skeptical initially, but heard from multiple sources that Dr. Stanley helped old jocks rehabilitate so they could continue with their zealous endeavors. It was great advice!”

  • Depression

    “Truth be told after 30 years of misdiagnosis, mind-numbing pain and untold visits to doctors, I was suicidally depressed -in a dark abyss. Being in the care and support of Dr. Swan pulled me out of that place – he is loving, compassionate and integrous as well as a knowledgeable medical provider. He saved my life. I now access my creativity and capacities to deal with whatever life has to offer.”
