Osteopathy considers the person as a whole. Each osteopathic treatment is therefore different and individualized.
At the Ekinox clinic, our osteopaths (among the most experienced in Vaudreuil-Soulanges) passionate about their profession. The members of our team, mostly feminine, have extensive knowledge of health sciences and the interrelation between all systems of the body.
The role of our osteopaths is to analyze what you are experiencing in a global way and to propose an appropriate osteopathic treatment.
Working in an interdisciplinary team, your osteopath does not hesitate to refer you to other health professionals when your condition requires it.
What happens during an osteopathic session?
During the first meeting, a complete and global evaluation of your state of health and the discomfort that brings you to consult allows your osteopath to investigate the cause of neuro-musculo-skeletal, visceral and cranial dysfunctions. This information guides your osteopath in their evaluation through palpation.
What does your osteopath do next? Through gentle and precise mobilizations, your osteopath adapts his intervention plan according to the pre-established osteopathic evaluation.
Since it is a global approach, it is not surprising that your therapist works on areas further away from those where you have discomfort.
Who is osteopathy for?Our osteopaths work with people of all ages, from infants to the elderly. A wide range of people use osteopathic services, whether it is during a convalescence or a rehabilitation period. Athletes can also meet with an osteopath to relieve various discomforts in the muscles and tendons. Our osteopaths can also help relieve tension on the body during pregnancy and even works with postpartum and newborns. In fact, osteopathy is a gentle approach to treating children and babies at all stages of development.
What is the difference between osteopathy and physiotherapy?The difference is mainly between the philosophy and the fields of expertise of each of these professions. If both can help you and are complementary, then it is a matter of personal preference. Therapists know their areas of expertise and can refer you to another discipline when necessary. This is the main advantage of our interdisciplinary team!

After practicing horseback riding for 21 years and being passionate about running and pilates, Amanda is conscious of the impacts and stakes that comes with sports injuries and the importance of prevention and the treatment with the aim of being able to practice your sport with the best of your ability.
Her extra-professional activities are as numerous as varied. Now working part-time, she can devote her time to shower her children and grandchildren with love, to participate in sports such as tennis, biking, hiking, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing (anything outdoors!) and individual workouts, to travel (when it’s allowed again!) as well reading, when she finds the time!
Having practiced classical dance for nearly 15 years, she naturally turned, at first, to the sports field (athletics, rugby…). Thanks to these experiences, she was able to provide osteopathic follow-up to high-level athletes (Pôle Espoir Judo - France) over several years within a multidisciplinary team. Afterwards, she practiced at her own clinic for nearly 10 years. These different experiences have allowed her to work with clients of all ages and backgrounds.
She has enriched her practice over the years by following various professional trainers such as Jean-François Terramorsi and Gilles BOudehen. She is also a member of the RITMA association.
To fill up on oxygen, Muriel enjoys walking and observing the fauna and flora around her; and when it’s time to relax, a good book is never far away!
To maintain a healthy mind, Véronique practices a multitude of outdoor activities. Whether it is running, hiking, paddle boarding, wake-surfing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or camping, she finds her balance in the outdoors.jh!!
A lover of outdoor sports and with an artistic background in classical and contemporary dance, she wanted to "understand" the human body, the effects of training on health and finally put her knowledge and passion to work for others. As a kinesiologist, she is an enthusiast of the benefits of physical activity in our lives. According to her, a balanced life is achieved by reconciling sports with family and leisure activities.

In order to keep a balance in her busy life, Annie recently started meditation. It is this mental practice that keeps her both feet on the ground and, among other things, has greatly helped calm her anxiety. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and this is the way Annie has found to balance her daily life. She cherishes her moments of guided meditation with an essential oil diffuser.
