Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
How I found Osteopathy
I have always been fascinated by how the body moves. As a child, I became a competitive gymnast and as a young adult, I studied in a professional contemporary dance training program. It was in this context that I suffered a foot injury that resulted in having to walk with a cane for seven years. During that time, I explored various treatment modalities that might help me heal. I eventually discovered osteopathy, was treated with success and I never used a cane again. I was struck by how effective such an approach to health that combined elements of different modalities was.
As I explored osteopathy further, I realized that it not only combined tools to work with bones, joints, muscles and the cranium and its dura, but also with organs and their fascia that suspend them to bones and joints. For some osteopaths, including myself, treatments also include work with the etheric body (or energy fields).
Being a mother and having experienced some of the health challenges that can accompany pregnancy, childbirth and perinatal life, I developed a deeper sensitivity and knowledge about the health of women, babies, children as well as the health of the entire family that supports them. I work with people of all ages, people who have varied work professions and life experiences.
I deeply believe that the more tools we have the more chances we have of addressing the underlying causes of symptoms, which are different for each person. I believe in multi-disciplinary work and in my practice, I collaborate with other experts who can offer complementary perspectives and treatments.
Through osteopathy, I work to help people on their path towards healthier lives.
If you have any questions concerning osteopathy and your health or that of your loved ones, please do not hesitate to contact me. It will be my pleasure to discuss these with you.
Training and Work Experience
My name is Maryse Parkinson Tassé. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in osteopathy. In 2010 I completed a four and a half year full time training program (over 4000 hours) at the Collège d'Études Ostéopathiques in Montreal that is accredited by Wales University in the UK. This is one of the most comprehensive programs in Canada. I then obtained my Diploma of Osteopathy (DO) when I completed a thesis on the impacts on the mechanics of birthing of a back condition called spondylolisthesis. I received for this thesis the 2014 Andrew Taylor Still Award granted each year to the best qualitative research presented to an International Jury in Montreal.,.. This training meets the norms set by the World Health Organisation in 2010. Continuous learning is important to me, and I have participated yearly in postgraduate training on various topics, from athletics to perinatal specialities. I teach osteopaths and work with midwives to better the support offered to people living with spondylolisthesis both within and outside of the obstetrical context.

Somatic Experiencing™ Practitioner
Line is a Somatic Experiencing™ practitioner. She helps her clients create a somatic toolkit full of personal resources to better navigate life’s challenges with healthy strategies and to regain their essence and vital energy.
Somatic Experiencing™ is a body-oriented approach that helps people living with the consequences of chronic stress or trauma to regain their innate vitality and ability to cope with life’s challenges. Trauma may begin as acute stress from a perceived life-threat or as the end product of cumulative stress. Both types of stress can seriously impair a person’s ability to function with resilience and ease. Trauma may result from a wide variety of stressors such as accidents, invasive medical procedures, sexual or physical assault, emotional abuse, neglect, racial discrimination, oppression, war, natural disasters, loss, birth trauma, or the harmful stressors of ongoing fear and conflict.
Being a body-oriented approach, Somatic Experiencing™ does not require one to re-live a traumatic event. Instead, it aims to facilitate, in a slow and supported way, the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms.
Line is fluent in French and in English.

Craniosacral and Reflexology Therapist
Anna Crandlemire, CST-T, RCRT
I use two gentle, non-invasive modalities to help your body to heal. You will find a safe, calm, caring environment to rest in during your therapy session. With skilled intuitive hands, I re-balance your nervous system, release tension and revitalize your body. Rediscover what it feels like to be deeply relaxed
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle manual therapy that balances tissue tension around the brain and spinal cord in order to enhance the self-corrective mechanisms in the body. Reflexology works with the reflexes on the feet to stimulate energy and fluid flow in the body, assisting the body to maintain balance in the various body systems.
Both therapies are excellent as a preventative health program. As a holistic practitioner, I don't treat specific conditions. However, I often work with clients experiencing stress-related issues, pain syndromes (migraines, neck, back, nerve pain), concussions, memory issues, pre and post surgery, conditions that affect the spine, emotional and physical trauma, etc.
