Serge, born in 1975, of metis origins, from Mi'kmaq and Acadian roots, is native from Campbellton NB, situated in the Bay of Chaleur. He now lives in Dieppe with his spouse. He is the father of a boy in whom he has a lot of admiration. Serge practices on a regular basis yoga, qi gong as well as meditation, in which he attributes the source allowing to manage the daily stressors. He is a self-taught musician, a singer-songwriter, having for instruments his heart, his voice, his guitar and his drums. He is fascinated by the arts, by the culture and by the movement in all its forms and he is a huge nature enthusiast, our nurturing mother earth, in who he respects greatly and finds his inspiration and ressourcement. He considers that the daily work on oneself, to take time to know yourself, to recognize who we are fundamentally, to make peace with the past, to forgive and to love yourself and to love others unconditionally, allows freedom and peace of mind.
From a very young age, Serge was introduced to sports and to an active lifestyle, for which he thanks with enormous gratitude his parents, both physical education teachers, for having taught and inspired him. So was born the interest and the passion for a healthy lifestyle and a greater well-being. During most of his life, he was always involved in youth activities, wether it be by coaching baseball, soccer, track and field or being involved in “les jeux d’Acadie” Acadian Games. He obtained his diploma of secondary education at Roland-Pépin High School in 1993 where he graduated with honors and received athlete of the year title.
He obtained a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology, the study of therapeutic movement, at the University of Moncton in 1998 where he received the teachings of sports therapy and sports massage by Gene Gaudet born in Memramcook, the former physiotherapist of the Montreal Canadians. Serge was a sports therapist with the campus athletes as well as with athletes coming of everywhere worldwide, including the Junior Baseball World Championship. He worked as a volunteer at the campus sports medical physiotherapy clinic and at the cardiac rehabilitation clinic during the duration of his bachelor's degree.
Serge obtained afterward another bachelor's degree in Occupational Therapy at Laval University in 2001 and worked afterward at the Quebec Center of Physical Rehabilitation where he worked at the department of professional rehabilitation and spinal cord injuries. He helped people having work related accidents and motor vehicles accidents to recover physically and mentally, by allowing them to re-enter the work force and to regain their activities of everyday life. He worked with people who underwent of the spinal cord, head traumas, herniated discs, depression, anxiety and other physical and mental infringements. He also worked in the community at Extramural Programs in New Brunswick and at a many CLSC (Local community health care centers) in Quebec to accomplish functional capacity evaluations and recommend equipments, adaptations as well as lifestyle coaching to allow the people living difficulties in their daily living to maintain their independance and to improve their quality of life. He also practiced in
private clinics specializing in ergonomics, evaluation of working capacities, worksite analysis, adaptation and return to the work programs. He also worked as an occupational therapist in hospitals in New Brunswick and in Quebec in diverse departments, such as, orthopedics, psychiatry, nephrology, palliative care, general medicine, oncology and emergency.
He also worked as an occupational therapist, kinesiologist and aquatherapist in a rehabilitation center in Quebec in a therapeutic swimming pool with people living chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis and the loss of mobility. He taught exercise programs and physical conditioning in warm water pool, such as Ai chi and Yo chi, to improve their mobility, decrease the pain and improve their autonomy. He also gave massages called Watsu, developed in Harbin hot springs in California, with an aquatic integration approach in a therapeutic pool.
From 2006 until 2010, he studied Esalen massage and other technics at the School of Massage Therapy L'Attitude in Quebec as well as at Esalen Institute in California. Esalen massage is now called Momentum massage in Canada, to preserve the copyright of the Esalen Institute in Big Sur in California, center of development of the human potential which inspired Dr Ida Rolf and Dr Milton Trager to develop their bodywork technics Rolfing and Trager, and where Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers developed their foundations in the field of psychology. Esalen takes it's origins of Esselen which was a native american nation of the west coast of the USA who used to live on the site of the institute. It appears that the sweat lodge where they practised their purification rituals is now the meditation space at the Institute. The Momentum massage is an approach inspired by Swedish massage which is characterized by the slowness, the stretchings, pétrissages, effleurages, rocking movements, frictions and long fluid movements without structured sequences so allowing the creativity, the intuitive development, improving sensory integration and a slowing down of the heart rhythm, favoring the relaxation smoothly and a return to the essence.
He continues his specialization by studying other techniques in sports massage to help the athletes of any levels and the general population before their sports activity and to help muscle preparation before a competition or their exercise session. This approach also helps to reduce the pain caused by injury, to allow a faster recovery and helps to prevent injuries from happening.
He continued his improvement by studying the chair Amma massage to offer a treatment in the work environment and an alternative to the prone position. It is an approach based on the principles of the Japanese and Chinese traditional medicines that dates more than thousand years. Amma means massage in Japanese. It combines several physical techniques which are similar to reflexology and Shiatsu massage. It aims at eliminating the energy blockages and at preventing disease, at maintaining health, by exercising a series of accupressure points and percussions with the thumbs, hands, forearms along the meridians, muscles and articulations.
Besides being energizing, it allows to reach a deep state of relaxation and internal well- being. The work is made at the level of meridians and points of acupuncture favoring the energy stream. It's practiced on clothes and is of a duration normally of 15 to 30 minutes. Is ideal to offer to the staff in your work environment during gratitude day. The Amma
massage is also practiced while lying down on a massage table.
He studied Thai massage taught by Still Light Center at the Resource Yogatherapy School and Clinic in Montreal. Thai massage is a traditional approach which incorporates stretchings synchronized with the breaths. It allows to stimulate the blood circulation, to increase the flexibility and to reenergize. This approach was practiced, formerly, by hermits from India considered as doctors of Buddha. Traditionally, is practiced on a foam mattress on the ground and the practitioner Assists the person in yoga movements and stretches coupled with the breath. The Thai massage is now adapted on the massage table and the client is wearing supple and comfortable clothes allowing the ease of the movements. The theory of this technique bases itself on the concept of lines of energy bound to the body, collectively called meridians in Chinese medicine. The Thai traditional massage has for vocation to free the blocked energy lines. He also studied Restorative Yoga at Resource Therapeutic Yoga school and clinic. He guides you in maintaning yoga postures while stretching during long periods allowing the muscles to relax in depth bringing the relaxation and thereby increasing the flexibility and bringing a sense of letting go. Bolsters and cushions are used for positioning to assist the body in the muscular stretchings.
He continues his studies with the Myofascial Release technique, which is an approach where we apply a steady pressure while stretching at the level of the connective tissue
(fascia), the envelope of the muscles and the organs, allowing to help to reduce the pain, to dislodge adhesions, to allow a better oxygenation of tissues and to offer better mobility.
He studied the Cardiac Coherence which is a technique of breath which allows to learn to control its breath to regulate the stress and the anxiety. This simple technique would also allow to help to reduce the depression and the lower blood pressure.
He also studied Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) which is a brief psycho-energetic therapy. It works by harmonizing the coaching and the stimulation of the energy system. The EFT uses the tapping, light percussion using ones fingers on certain points of acupuncture (meridians) to decrease the intensity of emotions and emotional memories linked to events or traumatizing situations.
He pursues his training in Qi gong, which is a very old Chinese energy art form which answers perfectly to concerns of the modern human being. Qi meaning life energy, and gong meaning movement. The Qi gong is part of the Chinese Traditional Medicine. It's based on the energization of the energy contained in each of us; associated with the breath and with the intention, these gentle movements help strengthen and tone up the body, maintain health in organs, bones, muscles, tendons and the joints articulations by allowing the energy to circulate better, by releasing the energy blockages.
He was introduced to therapeutic touch, offered as in-service training to the staff of care in hospitals, and he completed a training in energy work called Chios favoring the harmony at the level of our energy body, so freeing blockages and allowing a better circulation of energy for better physical and mental health.
He studied the mindbody approach called " focusing ", which teachs us to cultivate an internal attitude to adress our problems differently and to set up favorable conditions to find new solutions. He obtained a certification in " Reality therapy " which fundamentally is the development of ways to satisfy the needs for the individual and help them to have harmonious relations with their close relations. It does not concentrate on the analysis of past. The reality therapy insists on the responsibility of the person which is placed in front of moral choices which is healthy to face.
He perfects his knowledge and adds other therapeutic tools by studying the science of aromatherapy. Maybe because of its prefix "aroma", a current perception wants that the aromatherapy amounts to spread pleasant smells just for the pleasure. Yet the suffix "therapy" indicates well that it is an approach to care, aromatic essences of plants of which establish the base. The naming "essential oil" became of current usage to speak of aromatic essences. As a therapeutic method, aromatherapy appears among one of the tools-resources of the naturotherapist. We use it to help several affections (coughs, throat pains, headaches, sinusitis, asthma, digestive problems, insomnia, fatigue, muscular and articular injuries). It's most remarkable action is of antiseptic nature (against bacteria, viruses, fungus and parasites). It's also used for the hygiene of the indoor environment (helps to desinfect and helps the prevention of infectious diseases), in beauty care and for relaxation. It also shows benefits on the psychological level and to help decrease anxiety.
He received a certification in yoga for children to show them ways to cope with anxiety and stress as well as to help them and their parents compose with the effects of attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity. It teachs them the fundamentals of proper body mechanics to increase strength and flexibility, improve posture and relaxation techniques in a fun way. The regular practice of yoga and meditation, allows the child and family to develop mechanisms of management of their emotions and allows them to compose with the daily stressors improving the sleep patterns and one's concentration at school and work.
He practiced massage therapy at the PEPS ( Physical Education and Sports Center) at Laval University where he worked with top athletes as well as with general and student population. He also worked as a massage therapist at the Siberia Scandinavian Spa in Lac Beauport and at Aliksir, Soins Essentiels, in Quebec where he received diverse trainings in aromatherapy, in particular, how to use essential oils in massage therapy. More recently, he initiated the development of massage therapy at the physiotherapy sports medicine clinic at University of Moncton, where he also practiced as a healthcare professional.
