Joan Poirier

After receiving her BSc in physiotherapy from the University of Montreal in 1986, Joan obtained her diploma in osteopathy from the Montreal College of Osteopathy (CEO) in 1994. Her thesis was on the osteopathic assessment of women experiencing menstrual pain.

In 1999, she became an owner/partner of the Poirier Viau Osteopathy Clinic. First and foremost a clinician, she works with a wide variety of clients of all ages and supports clients through their various life stages for all kinds of disorders (post traumatic, hormonal, postural, visceral dysfunction, anxiety, etc.). The clinical aspect and therapeutic encounter remain the focus of her interest in the profession.

She has been a clinician and educator at the CEO for many years. She specializes in directing dissertations, many of which have received excellence awards, and has also been responsible for numerous thesis protocols.

Since 1996, she has been a member of the International Jury at the CEO, presiding over research dissertations. She also helped implement the CEO’s outpatient clinic in Montreal and acted as co-manager for many years.

In 2002, the CEO presented her with the Andrew Taylor Still award for her exceptional commitment to the promotion, advancement, and recognition of osteopathy.

In 2010, she joined forces with other osteopathy clinic owners and became a founding member of the Qualita network.

She has taken many development courses in osteopathy over the last 20 years and continues to deepen her knowledge of the art of osteopathy.

Joan Poirier is a member of Ostéopathie Québec.
