To book an appointment with Yanic:
I have worked in the field of massage therapy for over 20 years now. Besides being a therapist, I am also a professor (I teach sports massage) and I am the owner of Kinesis Centre; Massage Therapy Clinic and Pain Management.
Before concentrating my studies in masso -Kinesitherapy at Kiné Concept Institute, I completed a BA. In sports physiology (sports therapy) at Concordia University. My studies and my athletic past are what made me develop a special interest in working with athletes to treat pain and sports injuries.
For several years I rubbed water sports and especially swimming and water polo. My swimming career stretches from 1975 until 1992 and of which I reached the national level in several trials. My water polo career spanned from 1980 until 1992. That being said, my passion for the game led me to become a coach. I led the St-Lambert Water Polo Club from 1987 until 2005. Also, I had the chance to work with Team Quebec and the National Water Polo Team for women as a trainer and also as a sports therapist from 1995-1998.
My personal experience in the world of swimming and water polo allowed me to know the biomechanics of these sports and to understand the mechanisms of injury and tissue reactions caused by pain.
Currently I am working with the following Olympic sports:
- SWIMMING : Victoria Poon, Geneviève Saumur, Sandrine Mainville, Audrey Lacroix, Charles Francis, Barbara Jardin
- DIVING : Mélanie Rinaldi
- SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING : Chloé Isaac et Gabrielle Cardinal le
- BOBSLED : Marquise Brisebois
- WEIGHTLIFTING : Marie-Éve Beauchemin, Valérie Lefebvre, Marilou Dozois Prévost
- TRIATHLON : Kathy Tremblay.
Melanie Rinaldi – National Team Athlete /International Medalist /Diving Canada:
« As a canadian national team athlete for over 10 years now, and 20 years in this sport, I have had the opportunity to work with many therapists from all over the world. Having had 3 surgeries and multiple muscle pull, tears and sprains; Yanic is the one person I can confide in to help get me back into top performance. His vast array of techniques allow him to assess any physical situation and apply the necessary methods to help get any athlete back into top form. His knowledge of the anatomy and movement of the body allows him to accurately depict the true cause of any injury and adress the source. He listens to his patients and genuinely cares about each of their well-being, thus providing a personalized elite-level service you can find only at his clinic. As a full-time competitive athlete, I place my trust and confidence in Yanic and he always delivers. I have had the pleasure of working with him for many years now, and look forward to many more. «
A therapy session with me unfolds as follows:
The main goal of my treatment is to relieve pain. To achieve this, I would first use fascia therapy. This approach helps decrease inflammation and edema (swelling), which decongest the tissues. This decongestion will create space in the body’s envelope, and by properly repositioning the tissues it allows them to do their job more effectively.
Later on I would use myo fascial techniques, ‘active release’ and reconciliation/stretching to lengthen and relax muscles and to calm the nervous system. By reducing noxious stimuli (pain messages) that attack the nervous system, we can thereby decrease pain.
Once the targeted area is much more flexible, I would proceed with ‘rebooting’ (restarting) the stabilizers in order for the nervous system to save the new ‘settings’ properly and prevent recurrences.
It is difficult to know how many appointments will be necessary, I would say it is impossible to determine. A recipe for a specific number of appointments does not exist. Each case is different. What we need to look at is the impact of treatment on our condition: Has there has been a change?
For me, a change in the ‘sensation’ is a sign that my treatment is progressing … Whether it is more pain, less pain, pain that changes place, dizziness, etc. This means that your body is receptive to what I do and as long as my treatment creates changes this means that it has an effect on you. If however, once you get out of a treatment with me, you feel the same as when you first walked in and you do not notice any changes in the next four days of the treatment, then I consider that my approach no longer has an effect on you. At this point, I would suggest to opt for another approach or just taking a break to let the body incorporate the new ‘settings’ with exercises to do at home.
What is important to me is to help you be more functional and have less pain and regain the purity of your sporting gesture!
