CONSTANCE DESARTHE

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

During Constance’s first year at the University of Medicine, she heard about Osteopathy. She began to take an interest out of sheer curiosity, then by consulting Osteopaths herself in regards to her shoulder, digestive issues and headaches.

She soon understood, the scope of Osteopathy was broader than a musculoskeletal approach and that there was a place for this in the medical world. During her studies of Osteopathy in France, she was able to work under wonderful professionals who reinforced her passion for my profession. This helped her grow into the Osteopathic practitioner she is today.

For Constance, Osteopathy represents a source of well-being for patients along with bringing awareness to the patient in regards to his/her individual requirements in order to promote healing. She welcomes and treats client by considering the patient as what he/she really is: Unique!

Constance adapts each treatment and understands what the patient requires in regards to emotional and physical state.

A message from Constance:
“It will be a pleasure for me to welcome you and establish the best osteopathic care that suits you best.”
