Celeste Bouffard graduated from the University of Ottawa’s Physiotherapy program in 2003. She then returned to Sudbury to practice in private clinics working mainly in orthopedics. She took several manual therapy, acupuncture and dry needling courses to improve her clinical treatment skills. She also worked in Hand and Upper Limb rehabilitation and the WSIB Upper Extremity Clinic at Health Sciences North.
In 2011 after having 2 c-sections, and having some difficulty with recovery, she did some searching to find ways to help her resolve her issues. This is when she discovered pelvic health physiotherapy. After taking that first course, she was hooked and discovered her passion. Since January 2014 she has dedicated her whole practice and life’s work to pelvic health and now owns her own practice. She is passionate about brining awareness to her community about these issues and the help available for this population. She has a deep thirst for knowledge and continues to enroll in continuing education relating to pelvic health and the treatment of persistent pain using a biopsychosocial approach.
She recently partnered up with Lexi Dewar, kinesiologist to develop Core Vitality – a post partum program for moms to get back into fitness safely and with confidence. Its all about empowering new moms and giving them the support they need, in education and confidence.
She loves the amazing network of health and wellness practitioners in her community that strive to advocate for women of all ages to optimize their health and well being.
