Osteopathic Practitioner

Frederic Dumunier DO(Fr)
Fred is a French Osteopathic Manual Practitioner and a graduate of the IFOGA, a French osteopathic school in Avignon, France. He is passionate in his quest to understand the human body and its workings and how osteopathic treatment can influence this complex interactive system. He received an Honourable Mention for his graduation thesis: “Measure of the effects of osteopathy follow-up on the autonomic nervous system with the Heart Rate Variability”.

Fred is also a graduate in aquatic osteopathy.

He volunteered as an osteopath in many sporting events including the French Championship Athletics and Endurance Motoring.  His adventurous spirit sent him to Morocco as part of the medical team for the rally race "Raid Passion Désert".  As a backpacker, he has travelled to Mont Blanc, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Mauritius, Reunion, Malta and recently Canada.  Finally, he settled down and decided to call Canada his new home.

Thanks to his knowledge, he uses many different osteopathic techniques to better respond to a patients' needs and to find the origin of the problem in order to encourage the body's own healing mechanisms.  He works on visceral, musculoskeletal and cranial systems with patients of all ages, from new-born babies to the elderly, as well as athletes and pregnant women.

To maintain a high-quality practice and offer his patients the best treatment possible, Fred attends several worldwide seminars. His most current works are visceral & manual Manipulations. He also teaches in different schools to spread his passion for Osteopathy.

Frederic proposes to his patients a holistic approach in collaboration with other therapists to find health and wellness.

Fred's favourite quote is:  "I do not treat symptoms, I treat a person."
