Victor Bourdeau is a Canadian-trained and licensed Osteopath, who is experienced in treating adults, children, the elderly, pregnant women and newborns. He seeks to restore and maintain his patients’ optimal health by targeting in particular:
- Musculoskeletal disorders affecting the spine, limbs and pelvis for people of all ages
- Dysfunctions of the cardiovascular system and organs, using visceral techniques
- Headaches, migraines and sleep disorders, nervous and psychosomatic conditions
- Colic, plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome), sleeping disorders, and respiratory issues in infants resulted from retained birth tensions or trauma
Victor graduated from Concordia University with a degree in Biochemistry before completing a rigorous 5-year Osteopathy curriculum in Académie d'Ostéopathie de Montréal, which included clinical training in clinic settings. He applies this knowledge to support patients to understand the physiological origin of their pain, as well as the bio-chemical interactions induced by diet and their respective environments.
Prior to joining IMI, Victor practiced at the Clinique d'Ostéopathie de Laval in Canada. His patients include professional Muay Thai and MMA fighters, sports enthusiasts, as well as people with a sedentary lifestyle. He also provided osteopathic checkups and treatments to pregnant mums and new born babies.
Born in Hong Kong, Victor was raised with consciousness of the benefits of combining western and oriental medicine. His training in traditional Hung Kuen, from an ancestral lineage in Hong Kong, has taught him the close relationship between martial arts and manual therapy, as practiced in China for hundreds of years. This knowledge and the practice of Muay Thai have inspired him to focus on prevention of injuries through the balance of body and mind. Throughout his career in martial arts, Victor has developed treatment protocols for fighters and competitors, and believes that daily sports & energetic practice can be used as a therapeutic tool.
By focusing on the history of the lesions including past traumas or surgeries, Victor will be possible to establish an effective treatment strategy for each individual patient. It is recommended to bring results of your medical examinations during your first consultation with Victor.
