Caroline Assaf

Certified Athletic Therapist

Caroline is a graduate of the Athletic Therapy Program at Concordia University. If you ask her why she became an Athletic Therapist, she’ll tell you that she loves the reward of helping her patients and athletes reach their goals, whatever they may be. Her approach is based on a combination of manual therapies and exercise. She uses tools such as myofascial release, massage and muscle energy to break through layers of muscle tension, realign and reset the body following an injury. She then implements exercise and breathing techniques to solidify these changes to promote long term progress and pain free living. She looks to empower her clients by providing them with the education and tools needed to help themselves outside the clinic environment.

Caroline has worked with a wide variety of active individuals, both athletes and active people alike. Whether you’re a football or rugby player, an engineer who loves bike rides, or a mom who loves long walks with her kids, Caroline wants to get you out there doing the activities you love. As someone who danced for over a decade, she’s experienced the pain of injury and understands the desire to get back out doing what you enjoy most. She herself now weight trains, practices yoga, and just loves to get out there and move! Her goal is to get you out and back to your activities in a way that’s fun, and friendly to your body. Whether your goal is to get back to work or play, Caroline is here to help you.

Caroline est aussi fièrement bilingue. Ayant complété tous ses stages en Thérapie du Sport à Montréal, elle est très à l’aise à travailler avec une clientèle francophone. Si vous cherchez une thérapeute qui peut vous servir en français, cela lui fera plaisir de vous aider!
