Marie-Céline is a bilingual (French and English) neuro-physiotherapist who combines neuro-developmental treatment (NDT), proprioceptive neuro-facilitation therapy (PNF) and functional therapy approaches in her treatment approach. She strongly believes in giving the client a lead role in their rehabilitation process and providing education and guidance is at the forefront of all her clinical treatment. She greatly emphasizes focusing and tailoring treatment around her client’s goals, interests, and their response to treatment.
Marie-Céline’s special interests include vestibular and oculomotor rehabilitation, sub-acute and chronic concussions, chronic pain, and treatment of other neurological conditions (especially spinal cord injuries, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, CIDP, strokes and traumatic brain injuries). She is also trained in CranioSacral Therapy ans uses these technqies to complement a functional and goal-directed approach to treatment
Marie-Céline has significant experience working with children (6 and up) with learning disabilities who may have diagnosed or undiagnosed physical factors contributing to these learning issues. These factors may include motor-sensory issues with the vestibular, proprioceptive or vision systems as well as motor or coordination centers. Motor-sensory issues can affect attention, behaviour and learning. Marie-Céline’s approach with children is specific to their interests as well as needs and goals. She also communicates with the schools as appropriate at the request of the client (child and parents/caregivers).
