Joëlle has always been fascinated by the movement and dedicated most of her career to bringing harmony and fluidity to the daily movements of her patients.

Dance, which she taught for more than 25 years, played a pivotal role in her career as a physiotherapist. Her love of dance and movement drove her to create the BALANCE dance prevention, evaluation and healing program. This program was widely used in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and was recognized and presented at national and international events related to dance medicine.


The BALANCE program offers an effective and original range of care and prevention of injuries related to muscular and skeletal system imbalances, bad posture or bad motor patterns during usual movements or sports. This program initially intended for students and dance professionals was founded in 1993 by Joëlle Segers. It is now expanded to include people with scoliosis, to athletes of all levels and to the general public. It's when your classic physiotherapy, chiropractic or osteopathic treatment ends that Joëlle will take over to bring you to the maximum of your physical abilities. She will detect abnormal movements in daily life such as lameness or apprehension to movement. She will guide you through her technique of personalized exercises to optimize your performance and your movements in general. She will improve movements specific to your physical activities whatever your level of training.

The Pilates technique was created by Joseph Pilates in the last century and has experienced a resurgence in popularity since then. a few years. It is a method of total conditioning of the body and mind. Participants will strengthen stability, coordination and quality of movement through exercises performed on the ground or using specialized equipment. These exercises constitute a complete physical conditioning including strength training, stretching, and body awareness and alignment. Thanks to her unique experience Joelle will take you well beyond the limits of classic Pilates. She can easily modify the exercises to adapt them to your needs. Classes will be individual or in groups, on the floor or with PIlates machines (reformer, barrels, chair)

Qigong means energy work. It is an ancient Chinese practice comprising a set of exercises and meditation techniques that allow our mind to remain calm and clear-sighted while improving our physical condition, well-being and health.

The routine practiced will be different depending on whether you want to improve your physical activities, improve your health or cultivate the spiritual side of Qigong.

Most of us practice Qigong to maintain or improve our health, but it is also possible to practice external Qigong where the experienced practitioner leads energy to another person with the aim of healing them.

Qigong is particularly powerful to help in the treatment of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, pain due to osteoarthritis, to treat tendonitis or to help with insomnia, anxiety and circulation problems. Qigong in no way replaces traditional medical treatment that has been prescribed to you, but it will improve its effects.
