Your Osteopathic Practictioner
Hi I’m Alexis,
an Osteopathic Practitioner (DOMP), with over ten years of varied and specialized experience. I began practicing osteopathy in Quebec in 2012 where I co-founded the Clinique Intégrative d’Ostéopathie. Later, life brought me to Colorado where I worked with world renowned physicians such as Dr Jason Glowney MD in sport medicine and Dr Robert Rountree MD in functional medicine. I also worked with a team of concussion and traumatic brain injury specialists at Integrative Sport and Spine under the direction of Dr Micheal Tracy DO.
These experiences led me to begin my journey of the exploration of the relationship between trauma, the nervous system and pain. I used this unique approach that combines osteopathy and trauma informed practice to address neural patterns that create pain and discomfort.
My own journey with osteopathy started when I was a child faced with the possibility of a major life changing spinal surgery.
Osteopathy Changed My Life
As a child, I was diagnosed with scoliosis. Osteopathy prevented me from requiring a serious surgery to fuse my thoracic & lumbar spine.
It allowed me to not only heal my debilitating back pain, but also to transform my health and my relationship with my body, allowing me to become a professional ballet dancer. Osteopathic care changed my life. For this reason, when the time came to retire my ballet slippers, I knew I wanted to share the transformative potential of osteopathic care.
I love the body’s complexity and the ways it adapts to life. My role is to understand the story behind pain, dysfunction, and disease. I am here to to work with you, and find you the best path to health.
At Comprehensive Bodywork we offer you a wide variety of treatments based on the experience and expertise collected through multiple post-graduate certifications including: Endo-cranial Spasms, Biodynamics, Meta-osteopathy, Seated-facet Release Techniques and Structured Functional Adjustments.
