Benoit Noel - D.OM.P

Osteopathic Manual Therapist

My mom says I was active from the moment of birth – a ton of energy to explore the world around me. I was naturally drawn to the function of the body and athletics and dappled in Rugby before finding my passion for gymnastics. For twelve years, six hours a day, gymnastics was my life – competing across Europe for many years. I had the honor or representing the French National Team. Gymastics not only provided an outlet for my never-ceasing energy, but it taught me discipline and commitment. Little did I know it also planted the seed for my interest in human health and my eventual studies of Osteopathy. 

I have been practicing Osteopathy for over four years. I am convinced of its role in helping people achieve wellness – from pain relief to immune support – everybody is receptive to osteopathic manual treatments.

When not at the clinic, you’ll find me exploring this beautiful new province I now call home!

What is Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Osteopathic manual therapy is rooted in the belief that abnormal functioning of one area of the body may cause symptoms to present elsewhere in the body. Moving beyond symptomatic treatment, Benoit is skilled at identifying often subtle, but important clinical connections in various parts of your body – helping you to understand how all aspects of your health are related. Most people are fascinated to learn restoring proper mechanics in one area of the body dramatically improves function elsewhere. 

Osteopathic manual therapy uses gentle techniques to restore proper mechanics to joints, the nervous system and organs. By encouraging optimal flow of fluids in the body, this method of treatment naturally aids the body in resolving a variety of health concerns. Infants, children, athletes and the elderly benefit greatly from osteopathic therapy. 

Some health concerns often treated:

  • Pain
  • Heartburn
  • Constipation
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Newborn torticollis and flat head/asymmetry of the skull
