Un nouveau groupe bilingue qui pourrait intéresser certains membres du Club...

My name is Aviva Cohen. I am the daughter of Marguerite Cohen, who runs the successful Francophile, Francophone Meet Up Group, here in Ottawa. I was at one of her meetups when I met another individual who was young, healthy, and body aware, who was left bed bound with a spinal injury for several months. We exchanged about the shock of feeling pain, the most intense of our lives, the isolation that comes with it, and on the other side, the jouney of re-integration, and love of life that comes from it. We couldn't believe we had met someone else with a similar story. We immediatetly exchanged numbers and started helping each other.

I am a natural health practitioner. I do osteopathic manual therapy. I became one because 15 years ago I felt let down, and humiliated by the medical system. I made a commitmment to myself and to my own healing. When I had to face my own experience of being bed bound from a spinal injury incurred through yoga and exposure to mould I was fortunate enough to know who to turn to and how to heal, and I had my brother to share with, who has also walked this path. I was in the best place for it, equiped to get immediate help in a way that got me on my feet again within 6 weeks. Not everybody has this. My goal is to help as many people as I can find their way through these dark times.

Bilingualism encouraged.
