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 mobility 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, Zach Cupples’ Human Matrix and Lucy Hendricks. 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 feeling stronger in our daily activities.
I love working with a wide-ranging clientele from performance (athletes of all levels, musicians, dancers and singers), from children to active seniors, both to prevent injury and improve performance as well as recovery after surgery or injury.
I believe strongly in an interdisciplinary collaboration, so if you are a coach, doctor, dentist, physiotherapist or other healthcare professional with a question about how our work could combine to greater benefit our clients, please get in touch!
