OSTEOPATHES

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.

SARINA

For François, the path to osteopathy was winding, original, unexpected, in short out of the ordinary, which describes him well. He was first part of the aeronautic world, as a design consultant, then as a teacher, until the day he left everything behind and went on a long journey around the world, without a map (but with a compass), which led him to a new starting point: osteopathy. A therapeutic approach that he already appreciated as a patient, and which combines what is close to his heart: science, rigor, but also, and above all, awareness and observation. Deflated from his previous professional experience, where real needs were always second to financial interests, François now seeks a real, simpler form of service; the one that helps, that facilitates, rather than intervenes and corrects. The philosophy of osteopathy allows this, because it is based on the body's own capacity for self-healing. The therapist becomes a point of reference, allowing the patient's body to free itself, within its current capacities, thus regaining its power and autonomy.

 

A graduate of the Collège d’Étude Ostéopathique of Montreal, François has been practicing osteopathy for 2 years, one in Kamouraska and the other in St-Jérôme, where he still practices today. He has since then completed additional training on fascia, glandular and nerve dysfunctions, as well as on the abdominal and pelvic brain.

 

 That being said, the osteopathic approach adapts to all patients, whatever their age or symptoms.

 
SARINA

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.

 
SARINA

Sarina always knew she wanted to help others. Not knowing which field to turn to, she decided to go on a 9 months adventure exploring Europe and North Africa. This journey put her on the path of several manual therapists. She had always been interested in psychology, but she had now discovered a passion for physical health and the art of palpation. Upon her return, she began training as a massage therapist, which fascinated her, and led her to seek more tools to address the complexity of the human body. The philosophy of osteopathy reasoned with her: the body is a whole; no parts can be considered separate from the others.

 

Sarina trained in swedish massage and sports massage in 2011, and transitioned directly to osteopathy at the Collège d'Étude Ostéopathique de Montréal. She has been practicing osteopathy for 5 years, first in Montreal and then in St-Jérôme, where she still practices. She has since completed specialized training in obstetrics, pediatrics, glandular and nerve dysfunctions, balance disorders, and abdominal and pelvic brain.

That being said, the osteopathic approach adapts to all patients, whatever their age or symptoms.
