KINESIOLOGIST PLATEAU

 

BACKGROUND AND TRAINING

After her college training in music, Anne developed an interest in the science of human movement. She completed a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology -awarded by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology- and a graduate degree in Therapeutic Exercise at the University of Sherbrooke.

Her motivation to combine her two passions led her to Europe to specialize in the treatment and rehabilitation of fine movement. During her stays in France, Anne assisted Marie-Christine Mathieu, a physiotherapist and author renowned for her work with musicians, during training sessions on gestures and postures for musicians and participated in the training of physiotherapists and music teachers. She is also fortunate to work with Michel Dufour - an internationally renowned physical therapist, trainer and author - at Applicanat, a continuing education organization in dissection and morpho-palpation.

APPROACH AND PHILOSOPHY

EXPERTISE AND MULTIDISCIPLINARITY
With a wealth of experience acquired overseas, Anne is happy to put her unique expertise to work for her clients. Recognized for her effectiveness in relieving chronic discomfort, she approaches musculoskeletal disorders using a preventive and rehabilitative approach that aims to optimize the gesture(s) responsible for the problem.

Anne practices a global approach. Since the area of complaint is not always the one where the cause originates, it is essential to consider the body - and its interactions - as a whole.

Anne is convinced that it is important for the client to understand the source of his or her problem in order to better overcome it. The client then becomes an actor in his or her own recovery, which is a key element in his or her healing.

Aware that several health approaches can help clients overcome their problems, Anne regularly works in collaboration with various therapists who are experts in their field and whose primary concern is the client's well-being.
