Using a patient-centered approach, Pierre brings the highest possible level of care and comfort to his patients, customizing every treatment to each individual.

Pierre focuses providing treatments in a gentle way- using techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, cranial osteopathy and visceral manipulation- and follows this up with home-care advice including healthy lifestyle recommendations.

 

About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a patient-centered discipline that is based on understanding the relationship between structure and function in order to improve the inherent ability of the body to heal by relying on manual therapeutic techniques qualified to evaluate and treat the patient.

By using only his hands, the osteopath will seek in the body of the patient a loss of mobility of the tissues which generates the illness perceived by the patient.

He studies his patient as a whole to seek and treat the root cause of the problem, not just its consequences.

Osteopathic practitioners work cooperatively and in communication with physicians and other health care professionals to achieve the best outcomes for the patient needs.

Osteopathy is primarily a form of preventive care, although an osteopath can also be consulted for chronic pathology, trauma, or injury. Checking on the structure and state of health of your body can help to limit or even avoid future muscle, joint, nervous, digestive and muscle pain and/or disorders.

If you’re not sure osteopathic healthcare is right for you, ask Pierre. He will be happy to advise you, reassure you or to refer you to the best suited therapeutic care.
