Diane Marc-Aurèle, D.O.
Osteopath / Bachelor in Physiotherapy
Diane first had a more artistic interest in the fascinating world of movement and anatomy by first obtaining a degree in contemporary dance from Concordia University in the early 1980s when Montreal was a pioneer and globally recognized in this field. She soon became interested in the perspectives of somatic education and other psycho-corporal approaches to motor development by studying and practicing the Body-Mind Centering approach, the holistic type of gymnastics of Thérèse Bertherat as well as an active practice of yoga and meditation still to this day.
She wanted to know more about it and in 1986 she joined the Department of Physical Therapy at the Université de Montréal and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy in 1989. Following this, she pursued comprehensive studies in osteopathy with the CEO of Montréal until 1995. Always wishing to perfect her knowledge in the field, she then turned to several trainings with American osteopaths including Dr. J. Jealous and its transmission of osteopathy called biodynamic as well as several training courses in all important fields of osteopathic medicine are visceral, myofascial, structural and cranial osteopathy. She will practice physiotherapy in parallel until 2016 after which she decided to dedicate her practice exclusively to the field of osteopathy.
Having herself participated in triathlons and studied dance, she knows the specific needs of these two types of clienteles. In addition, being able to participate in the development of young adolescents (neuro-motor, learning or concentration problems) or women’s health at different stages of their lives (pre-pregnancy and post-pregnancy Fertility, foetal positioning, pubalgia, cesarean section scar, pelvic floor tear, vascular disorders or endocrine issues of menopause, anxiety) as well as the somato-emotional aspects resulting from bad experiences of trauma are part of her expertise.
In fact, in 2018-19 Diane continues her ongoing training on another aspect of the myofascial system’s treatment thanks to the morphological and psychological analysis of the various typologies as illustrated by the different articular and muscular chains that line the fascinating Human Body (GDS Method Ms. Godeleive Denys-Struyf).
