Sophie’s first career was in child care, where she not only acquired a lot of experience with children but also learned the art of management and interpersonal communication. In addition, as a manager and educator, she developed intervention plans for children with special needs.
After a career that lasted 10 years in the child care industry, Sophie became a massage therapist by taking a course at the Kiné-Concept institute, a school recognized by the Quebec Federation of Massage Therapists (FMQ). For the past 10 years she has been practicing massage therapy using mainly Swedish massage.
With her previous experience, Sophie is also able to deal with children’s problems of anxiety and attention deficits using massages. She can also intervene with elderlies, helping them when they are faced with problems of arthritis and Parkinson’s. To make an appointment with Sophie, click on her agenda online or call us.
Looking forward to meeting you.

Et Epigonus quidem amictu tenus philosophus, ut apparuit, prece frustra temptata, sulcatis lateribus mortisque metu admoto turpi confessione cogitatorum socium, quae nulla erant, fuisse firmavit cum nec vidisset quicquam nec audisset penitus expers forensium rerum; Eusebius vero obiecta fidentius negans, suspensus in eodem gradu constantiae stetit latrocinium illud esse, non iudicium clamans.
Quod si rectum statuerimus vel concedere amicis, quidquid velint, vel impetrare ab iis, quidquid velimus, perfecta quidem sapientia si simus, nihil habeat res vitii; sed loquimur de iis amicis qui ante oculos sunt, quos vidimus aut de quibus memoriam accepimus, quos novit vita communis. Ex hoc numero nobis exempla sumenda sunt, et eorum quidem maxime qui ad sapientiam proxime accedunt.

A client consults in physiotherapy following a bad fall in the stairs that resulted in a long scratch along the inside of her leg, down to the ankle. Following a careful analysis of the resulting edema, Mr Guindon recommends a massotherapy treatment with Sophie. With this type of injury, our body calls out different internal systems to first, defend itself and then, regenerate healthy new tissues around the injured area. The inflammatory and cellular repair phases were almost completed when we started treatment. At that point, there were no more remaining visible edemas on the outside of the skin, only a small bulge around the top tibial plateau area. In massothe allowsrapy, we view this tissue accumulation as a potential gridlock for blood circulation as well as a lack of tissue elasticity. We therefore focused our interventions around these areas : A lymphatic drainage promotes a better blood and lymphatic flow that allows better elimination through nourishment and oxygenation of damaged tissues. Using strokes of vibration, effleurage and petrissage, we were able to reestablish healthy blood flow, increasing internal temperature which in turn will help increase elasticity of the connecting tissues through what we call, myofascial release. Working on improving […]

In the last few years, concussion has been the health subject that has drawn a lot of attention. Sports such as hockey and football have been particularly singled out, especially the NFL which has been accused of not being as transparent as it could have been with the long-term negative effects of concussions and how the injuries are treated by the teams.
Spinal Manipulation is the application of controlled force to a joint, moving it beyond the normal range of motion in an effort to aid in restoring health. Manipulation may be performed as a part of other therapies or whole medical systems, including osteopathy, massage, and naturopathy.
The word holistic is often used in discussing a person’s health or treatment, but many people are still uncertain exactly what it means. The word holistic comes from the Greek word holos, meaning “entire” or “all.” Rather than some weird definition, holistic treatment simply means treating the entire person.
