Thanks to Anne-Marie Mougeot and her osteopathic techniques I was able to
overcome my shoulder pain I had been holding onto for 2 years. This is a story of
success. In August of 2017 I had my arm in a sling and couldn’t even butter my toast
without feeling pain. After having several MRI scans and going through physical therapy, my shoulder saw very little improvement. In April of 2018 I decided to see Anne-Marie at Island Optimal with the intention of healing my shoulder before I took a back -packing trip in May. At my first appointment I could barely lift my arm above my head out of fear of feeling pain. Throughout the next month Anne-Marie helped my change my mindset about the pain. No longer did I think of myself as hurt, but as someone who had a goal to meet. I gained confidence in my movements and each day I added a little weight to my backpack. Using my new mindset, exercises and manual therapy with Anne-Marie, I was able to meet my goal of being ready to backpack in May! When it came time for my trip I could not only lift my arms above my head but also carry a 40 pound backpack on my shoulders. There was no greater feeling of accomplishment than to go from not being able to reach for a cup in my cupboard to carrying a heavy backpack within a month. -Rebecca B.
Anne-Marie is a passionate entrepreneur. She excels at providing clients with valuable information in an easy to understand manner. I have attended her beginner yoga classes and served as a practice client for her on-going osteopathic studies. She is very knowledgeable and was able to thoroughly explain her process to me to feed my curiosity. Anne-Marie cares about her clients and I can tell that she has found her calling in life! -Stephanie L.
I was looking for a personal trainer to give me a workout program after my back injury last year. I found Anne-Marie and she has been fantastic to work with. She understood my injury and created a program around it to help me get back in the game again!! It feels so good to be working out again and knowing that I am safe to do so with the exicises she has given me. She provided me with a 5-day program that I can now go on an use on my own. It is perfect for me and my life style. I can strongly recommend her to anyone who wants to be active again following pain or injury. -Martin
Very knowledgeable of how the body works as a whole. I love the holistic approach to healing the body.
Anne-Marie has a great combination of practical knowledge of her discipline and intuitive care and was, as a result, very instrumental in my healing from a chronic back and neck injury. I highly recommend her without reservation.
