About Ascent Health & Fitness

The goal of Ascent Health & Fitness is to bridge the gap between injury care and physical fitness to develop a holistic perspective on training and treatment.

Our approach to manual therapy (treatment done through touch) can be described to be very kind and gentle, treating the entire body and person rather than simply treating the symptoms. If the cause of the dysfunction is treated, often the symptoms disappear. Anne-Marie is currently in her fourth year of studies at the Canadian College of Osteopathy. The duration of the program is 5 years of school and a thesis. Her treatments include a blend of Cranial Sacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Strain-Counterstrain Technique, Muscle Energy, and Visceral Manipulation work.

During the initial assessment, she will discuss with you your main concerns and review a complete health history, followed by a physical assessment of posture, joint range of motion, and tissue quality in standing, sitting, and lying down which will be followed by treatment if the remaining time allows.
Follow-up treatments will include a review of any changes and answers to any questions that may arise since the last treatment and re-assessments to monitor treatment effects. This will be followed by the appropriate treatment plan. You may also be given functional exercises and stretches to re-educate the nervous system, integrate the treatment, and to build strength and gain flexibility. Anne-Marie also has a B.Sc. in Kinesiology and is a Certified Personal Trainer through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. Exercise therapy and personal training is available as an extension of your treatment plan upon request.

Our Fitness Philosophy
We believe in training in such a way that will benefit you in your daily life, whether that means improving your strength and speed in the sport you play, being able to perform duties at work, or having the energy and ability to play with your children without experiencing back pain.

The workouts we provide are goal oriented and combine principles of injury prevention, improving function, and of course bringing numerous health benefits. And if your goal is to tone up and lose weight, with proper nutrition and adherence to the programs this will be accomplished as well, resulting in an overall higher quality of life. It's never too late to begin to care for yourself, and we are here to help you every step of the way!
