Ben Cabaret, D.O.M.P. (France)

Osteopathic Manual Therapist & Founder

While studying kinesiology at the Université de Grenoble, Ben discovered osteopathic manual therapy. After suffering a severe knee injury, Ben experienced first-hand the positive impact that osteopathic manual therapy could have on the recovery process.  It was at this point in time that Ben decided to dedicate his career to helping people through osteopathy.

 

In 2011, Ben graduated from the five-year osteopathic manual therapy program at the Institut de Formation en Ostéopathie du Grand Avignon in France. This program is registered at the highest level with the National Directory of Professional Certifications; the top professional certification in France.

Ben is trained in structural, functional, visceral, craniosacral, Jones (strain-counterstrain), Mitchell (muscular), GOT and pediatric osteopathic treatments. Ben is also a firm believer in life-long learning and is currently completing a neuromeningeal manipulation program, which focuses on treatment of the nervous system.

In addition to Ben’s formal training and professional work experience, he served as the Vice-President of the Alberta Association of Osteopathic Manual Therapists from 2016 - 2019. Ben has also had the opportunity to work with professional rugby and volleyball teams, as well as volunteer with the LPGA CP Women's Open.

Ben firmly believes in the overall management of a patient’s health and not just their symptoms. Ben prides himself in being an attentive and caring healthcare provider, who focuses on understanding each individual’s unique needs.

Ben has also completed an office and industrial Ergonomics certificate in 2021 and 2022 and is able to give advice as to how to setup your workspace properly. In the near future, he will also be offering assessments should you wish him to setup your workspace more efficiently.

​Outside of the clinic, Ben enjoys skiing, golfing, catching a game (especially hockey now that he lives in Canada), as well as spending time with his family and friends.

Osteopathic Manual Therapist

 

Passionate about anatomy and the functioning of the human body for as long as she can remember, osteopathy seemed an obvious choice for Elodie. While studying Occupational Therapy in 2017, she decided to switch her focus to osteopathy. 

In 2022, Elodie graduated from the five-year Osteopathic Manual Therapy program at the Institut de Formation en Ostéopathie du Grand Avignon, in France.

During her three years of research for her dissertation, she trained in the in-depth analysis and treatment of the myofascial chains, allowing for a global osteopathic treatment adapted to the specific needs of her patients. 

During her five years of study, Elodie was involved in the National Federation of Osteopathic Students in France, allowing her to represent osteopathic students in order to better their training and visibility with the government. 

In 2021, she had the opportunity to participate in a 3000km raid in the Moroccan desert as an Osteopathic Manual Therapist. During this adventure, she treated numerous bikers and race drivers, whose needs were to be able to continue the race despite the pain and injuries caused by falls and the strain of an endurance race. This experience made her discover physically traumatic situations and taught her to adapt her treatments.

She also has a background in EMS and has experienced many emergency situations, teaching her to remain efficient and to trying to make appropriate decisions in all circumstances.
