Brice Bonnard, DOMP

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

After working for some years as an auxiliary nurse in orthopaedic and digestive surgery in France, I joined the college of osteopathy for a five year full time program at CEESO Lyon and CIDO Saint Etienne, graduating with a “Diplôme d'Ostéopathe". After gathering a variety of clinical experience in South America, Africa and France, I decided to settle in Toronto and am now a member of the Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners.

The experience of both nursing and osteopathy combined give me the professional training and different perspectives to help me better understand the range of various pathologies I encounter as a practitioner. I practice osteopathy with a kind listening and a deep understanding of the patient, a postural approach to the body, and profound fascial techniques.

The fascia, “this connecting substance, must be free at all parts to receive and discharge all fluids, and use them in sustaining animal life, and eject all impurities, that health may not be impaired by dead and poisonous fluids.”

The soul of man, with all the streams of pure living water, seems to dwell in the fascia of his body.
— Andrew Taylor Still, founder of Osteopathy

I have also been involved in the world of sport since the age of 10 (basketball, running, swimming). I have studied athletic training and have worked with athletes from the beginning of my studies in Osteopathy, giving highly tailored treatments to address their specific needs.
