Sophie Janssens

D.O. Member of Ostéopathie Québec


During her career as a professional dancer, Sophie experienced the benefits of Pilates and osteopathy. She obtained her Pilates teacher training certification in 1996, opened her own Pilates studio and worked for 3 years Cirque du Soleil artists for both rehabilitation and prevention. Her growing interest and passion for understanding health and the body prompted her to start her training in osteopathy at the Collège d'Études Ostéopathiques in Montreal in 2006, where she obtained her certification in 2018..

​Sophie has been practicing osteopathy since 2011 in clinics with a diverse clientele including: preventive interventions, interventions for quick needs, long-term maintenance, pre- and post-surgery, preparations for childbirth, children, newborns, athletes, the elderly, etc.

Her passion and sensitivity for people, movement, health and body-mind balance, allow her deepen her practice while enriching her knowledge and integrating new treatment tools.


To deepen her practice she took supplementary courses during the ‘Symposium International d’Ostéopathie’ such as:
