As both an osteopath D.O. and a certified athletic therapist CAT(C) with over 15 years of clinical experience, my approach combines hands-on manual therapy with my background in movement and rehabilitation.
After a career in professional dance, I studied biology and Exercise Science at Concordia University in Montreal, graduating in 2004 with a BSc., specialization in Athletic Therapy. Wanting to go more deeply into manual therapy and its effects on health and well-being, I completed the seven-year program at the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques de Montréal, graduating in 2014 with the presentation of my post-graduate case study, “The Effects of Osteopathic Treatment on the Vocal Qualities of Two Professional Singers”.
Over the last two years, I’ve been exploring bringing movement into my practice, studying with great rehabilitation specialists such as the Postural Restoration Institute and Zach Cupples’ Human Matrix. Client feedback has been overwhelmingly positive: a few, carefully-chosen exercises are a powerful way to bridge the new mobility gained in clinic with also moving well in our daily activities.
I love working with a wide-ranging clientele: from performance (athletes of all kinds, musicians, dancers and singers), patients post-trauma & surgery, with stress management, to seniors and caring for women before and after pregnancy.
I believe strongly in an interdisciplinary collaboration, so if you are an acupuncturist, physiotherapist, yoga instructor, dentist, doctor, coach or other with a question about how our work could combine to greater benefit our clients, please get in touch!
