Our Philosophy to Healthcare and Healing

Maureen's Biography & Credentials

Maureen has been an Osteopath for fifteen years.  Her education and credentials go far beyond the standard Osteopathic education offered in Quebec colleges.   Maureen has met all requirements for becoming a Primary Care Practitioner of Osteopathy (DO) according to international standards. This includes a university degree in the health sciences, 3-6 years of intensive study within the field of Osteopathy, the completion of a thesis, accreditation evaluation as a primary care practitioner, writing and publication of dozens of case studies.  Maureen is qualified to interpret all medical imaging including radiology and MRIs, but cannot legally diagnose or requisition such imaging in Canada.  

Maureen also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from McGill University with a major in Clinical Psychology since 1989.  Over the years, Maureen has developed a unique style of incorporating her knowledge of the human psyche as well as the human body, and how suffering on one level can cause pain on the physical level, and vice versa.  As a result, upon special request, Maureen incorporates talk Psychotherapy along with Reiki Hands-On Healing, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, and Osteopathy into her sessions, for a more complete approach to healing on a deeper level.  All of the above therapies are offered under the title of Osteopathy and insurance receipts are issued as such.

Maureen has been an accredited member in good standing in several provinces across Canada, as well as overseas.  She is currently a member of the Society of Osteopaths of Canada, a fomer member of the OFOP , the Corporation des Praticiens en Medecine Douces du Quebec in Quebec, the Society for the Promotion of Manual Practice Osteopathy in British Columbia,  as well as being an Associate Overseas member of the Australian Osteopathic Association (AOA).  Maureen underwent accreditation evaluation as a Primary Care Practitioner in Australia in 2008.  Maureen has completed partial accreditation with the General Osteopathic Council in the United Kingdom, and has the distinction of having been the first Canadian trained Osteopath to be approved to work in Singapore in South East Asia.

Maureen was born and raised in Montreal, Canada.  She completed her undergraduate studies at McGill University with a major in Psychology. She completed her Osteopathic training in 2003 with the College d'osteopathie duQuebec a Montreal where she was awarded the title Doctor of Osteopathy.  For eight years Maureen was the owner and director of Centre Osteopathie Plus, a multi-disciplinary clinic  on the north shore of Montreal,  where she successfully treated hundreds of patients each  year.  Many of her patients came to her via word-of-mouth, but increasingly patients were also referred by family physicians, specialists, and other health care practitioners. Maureen's  interest in healthcare has taken her from the east coast to the west coast of  Canada to Europe, Australia, as well as Southeast Asia where she worked in Singapore alongside a fully international team of health care practitioners.   

Maureen prides herself in taking an empathetic yet medical approach to assessing and treating her patients. Her background in Psychology and her personal growth as a Believer also contribute her patients.  She has a focus on women's health dysfunctions including infertility, pregnancy and obstetrics, uro-geninal bladder and kidney disorders, as well as cranial pathologies, including migraines, chronic sinusitis, chronic pain due to cervical  whiplash, recurring ear infections in children.  

Although Osteopathy now takes a wholistic approch to relieving physical pains or limitations, Osteopathy originally started as a branch of medicine in the USA.  The first Osteopaths were classic "bone setters" and the techniques were very similar to chiropractic.  Today, Osteopathy has evolved to include a vast array of techniques, both direct and indirect, gentle and high velocity, that work to often gently relieve a soft tissue or joint restriction .  Massage therapy is an excellent therapy for a variety of musculo-skeletal conditions, to help improve circulation, and relieve stress.  By incorporating massage therapy into her treatments, Maureen uses her advanced knowledge of human anatomy and biomechanics to relieve many chronic pain conditions.
