She finds true passion in supporting you and your family to reach your best health through nutrition for years to come by providing nutrition education and strategies to navigate our ever changing environment that is often designed to potentiate dis-ease in our health.

Dre Anne Dolbec
Chiropractor, D.C.

Anne became doctor of chiropratic as she graduated from the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières in 2014. Since then she has been a member of the Ordre des chiropraticiens du Québec and the Quebec Association of Pediatric and Perinatal Chiropractic. Newly mother of Florence, she is passionate about pediatric care and everything around perinatality. This is why she is pursuing a pediatric post-doctoral degree to serve better this particular clientele.

By exploring the different possible avenues for introducing food, she discovered the led weaning method and thus the close link between her practice and this approach. Therefore, her expertise will allow her to adequately evaluate, exchange with other health care professionals and treat various neuro-musculoskeletal disorders that could impede the proper functioning of led weaning process such as: the presence of congenital torticollis, swallowing difficulties, temporomandibular trouble, motor development disorder, etc.
