Warwick has been passionate about movement all his life. Coming from a long background in sports and the performing arts, he has used this experience to further his interest and understand of the complexities of the moving body in therapeutic and educational settings. In 2012 Warwick graduated with a Diploma in Osteopathy from the Centre Ostéopathique du Québec, after earlier having, obtained a Masters degree in physical education (distinction) in 2002, from the University of Otago in New Zealand. In addition to this he completed a 1000 hour teacher training in the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, graduating in 1999.
Warwick currently maintains an osteopathy and Feldenkrais practice at Espace212 in Outremont and at Clinique Santé Guindon in Dorval.
Since 2003, Warwick has been on the part time teaching faculty at the Université du Québec à Montréal and Concordia University teaching courses in Anatomy for the Moving Body and somatic education. Over the past fifteen years Warwick has taught somatic education workshops internationally in Africa, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, Europe, New Zealand and the USA.
Warwick’s performing arts background has included working with many major Dance Companies presenting at international festivals in New Zealand, Australia and Canada. His sports activities include Surfing, running, swimming, x country skiing, and freediving.
A few words from Warwick about his practice:
I use the Osteopathy and Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education in two ways:
1) Working with the general public to recover and improve daily life function and lost movement capacity due to trauma, injury, or chronic pain.
2) Working with performing artists and athletes to aid physical performance, increase sensory awareness of movement techniques and overcome technical or physiological limitations.
I find that using osteopathic manual therapy to stimulate the body's capacity for self regulation and somatic education to develop increased awareness through movement helps people recover faster and gives them tools to improve their state of health and well being.
In all cases I will not hesitate to refer to other health professionals where complimentary treatment, or further examination is indicated.
