Dominica Osteopathic Children's Clinic

Support the  "Dominica School House Expansion Project!"

We have developed a Free Osteopathic Children’s clinic in conjunction with the Dominica School and Orphanage in La Urena Dominican Republic.
Trips to the clinic consist of two days of didactic teaching at a beautiful all-inclusive caribbean resort followed by three days of an osteopathic general medical and children’s clinic in La Urena at the orphanage.

These trips will be done in small groups of up 12 Osteopaths to allow us all to work closely with individualized attention both in the didactic potions and while treating children at the clinic

Our two day didactic portion is held at the beautiful all-inclusive Caribbean resort Lifestyles Holiday Vacation Club (LVHC) in Punta Cana or Bayahibe. A place for peacful relaxation and rejuvenation on the Caribbean Sea. Topics covered vary depending on the interest of the gorup and will include a deeper understanding of the Meeting Place, Service, Humility and the Presence & Flow of Unconditional Love. It addtion we cover the unique aspects of treating in a group community setting with these special children.

Our two day clinic portion is held at the Dominica School and Orphanage in La Urena. Here we will, together, offer our osteopathic gifts in service to children of the orphanage and surrounding area. Generally we will treat together about 8-10 children at a time in the same room and Dr. Kisiel will be available during all treatments to assist and/or guide as needed. It is both a privilege and honor to be part of these group clinic experiences and makes for a wonderful leaning environment.

Our initial trip was February, 22-25 2016. We treated 164 beautufil children over the two days. It was a truly a transformational experience for all involved.  We have followed this with trips each February and November.

We are now enrolling osteopaths in additional follow-up trips as it is our intnetion to continue our work in La Urena on an ongoing basis:

We are hoping to restart our work at the Orphanage in February 2023

Please check back soon for details on upcoming opportunities

Course fee is $700 and incudes transportation from LHVC to the orphanage, lodging at a hotel in Santo Domingo near the orphanage for two nights, lunchs at orphanage, and transportation back to LHVC. All profits from the course will go as a donation to the Dominica School and Orphanage.


LHVC Punta Cana and Bayahibe is a wonderful place to bring family and friends for a winter holiday. Participants and thier family/friends are welcome to come and leave the resort at any dates to extend your holiday. Anyone accompanying participants is welcome to join us at the orphanage and offer any of their unique gifts to the children. Whether it be teaching a class, doing an arts & crafts projects, music & dance, helping with needed repairs, painting or simply spending time with the children, these would all be very welcome and appreciated. The children of Dominica orphanage often come from very poor backgrounds with a frequent history of abuse and neglect. They are very loving children, hungry to share their smiles, hugs and laughter with anyone who would take the time to visit.
