A word from the President

Welcome to the website of Ostéopathie Québec.

Ostéopathie Québec is the largest association of professional osteopaths in Canada.

Ostéopathie Québec is a member of the Canadian Federation of Osteopaths, the Osteopathic International Alliance and the European Federation of Osteopaths. We attest to the professional training of our members in conformance with guidelines established by the World Health Organization.

Osteopathy is a whole-body, entirely natural medical practice aimed at re-establishing the equilibrium and defense mechanisms of the body through specific manual adjustments. It restores the structures and systems of the body and provides the requisite mobility for comfortable functioning, depending on the specific physiology of each individual.

Ostéopathie Québec undertakes to promote the profession on behalf of its members and ensures that their methods are rigorous and efficient. We also keep the Quebec population informed about our profession.

In that way, and in concert with other health sciences, Ostéopathie Québec contributes to the well-being and health of the Quebec population.

Finally, the creation of a professional order of osteopaths in Quebec is at the heart of current issues. Ostéopathie Québec is actively involved in public protection matters. The unity and solidarity of the entire osteopathic community are essential to meet this challenge.
