WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a manual approach whose objective is to restore the functionality of the body's structures, in order to optimize its capacity for self-regulation, which means to maintain its own balance. This practice is based on in-depth knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body. Thanks to a precise and gentle palpation, the osteopath restore flexibility and mobility to the tissues, in order to address the cause of neuro-musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial dysfunctions. Osteopathic care is always specific and individualized.
WHO BENEFITS FROM IT?
All and at all ages. The training of our three osteopaths allows them to accommodate newborns as well as children, adolescents, adults and seniors. Including pregnant women, outdoor fanatics, couch sportsmen, sore renovators, hardened leaf scrapers, snow shovelling enthusiasts, curled up gardeners, and more.
Kristine is a mother of three daughters, she practices Pilates and promotes a healthy lifestyle for herself and her loved ones. She continues to practice osteopathy in Montreal and now offers her services in Saint-Donat-De-Montcalm where she is now settled with her little family. It's a happy homecoming for them, as they have stayed many weekends and vacations at their family cottage ever since childhood.
After studies in administration and a career in the financial field, Kristine redirected in 2008 to alternative therapies by following a training in craniosacral therapy of the Upledger approach. Her thirst to better understand the root of ailments and to learn more about the anatomy and functions of the human body persuaded her to embark on the great project of studies in osteopathy.
Since then, she has mastered fine palpation, fascial techniques, and treatments for musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial dysfunctions in depth in newborns, children and adults alike. Kristine has also followed training in Hypno-birth and Neuro-linguistic Programming.
Her practice has convinced her that humans fundamentally hold the resources to maintain homeostasis. Life providing its share of stress and challenges, its role is to guide the body towards a return to well-being.
