Sihem Baaboud’s Journey
Sihem grew up being fascinated by the world of health and with the desire to help people become pain free. She was drawn to pursue training in Osteopathy because this manual therapy allows her to care for all types of clients, at any time of their life. In addition, what interested her most at the time was that Osteopathy allows a holistic and global approach to the human body.
Following her graduation, she practiced for one year in France before deciding to discover new cultures. Her goal was to open herself to new experiences in order to enrich herself, and to expand her osteopathic knowledge.
She lived in Montreal for 3 years and discovered that Osteopathy is not so well known or appreciated here in Canada, and that it was necessary to promote this natural medicine for its enormous benefits.
In 2022, wanting to live closer to nature, and discover other living environments, she made the move to Ottawa.
Sihem Outside of work
She loves to travel and discover new landscapes, even 5 minutes from her home. These are relaxing moments for her where she enjoys the beautiful nature we have and can connect with herself.
Sihem likes to paddle, canoe and swim during the summer, and to enjoy the cottages and mountains in the winter.
She also loves to read and spend time cooking, these are hobbies that put her in her bubble and develop her creativity.
