Frederic Dumenier, DO(Fr)

Fred is a French Osteopath DO(Fr) 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 treatments 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".

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 Unite

d Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Lithuania, Mauritius, Malta, US, Bahamas, Iceland 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. Frederic proposes to his patients a holistic approach in collaboration with other therapists to find health and wellness.

He is currently teaching at the Academy of Osteopathic Science in Toronto courses about osteopathic manipulations.
