In December 2008, Anne Beaubien and Brice Gagliardi, both certified osteopaths, collaborated to create Clinique Altermed. Their goal was to extend the horizons of patient care using an interdisciplinary approach and by offering many services under the same roof. Combining traditional and alternative medicine, Clinique Altermed is one of the first establishments to offer comprehensive care in Montreal.
The original team was comprised of 10 therapists practicing osteopathy, massage therapy, acupuncture, psychology and nutrition. Shortly thereafter, an herbalist and a homeopath would complete the spectrum of services offered at Clinique Altermed.
In 2010, just one year after the clinic’s opening, the team consisted of 18 therapists working together to meet patients’ needs. Today, the team is composed of 25 therapists working in seven different disciplines.
