Structural Integration Practitioner

“My intention is to empower and educate people in realizing how responsive their bodies and minds are in the healing process, when they are fully acknowledged. Awareness is the primary tool. Full integration and restoration of health is the result.” – Anne-Marie Duchêne

For over 25 years, Anne Marie Duchêne, Founder of Art of Alignment, has coached and assisted hundreds of clients around the world in restoring their health and wellbeing. Informed by her own training as a dancer and athlete, the goal of Art of Alignment is to offer tangible tools and programs to support the renewal of health through holistic means.

Anne-Marie empowers her clients to make profound and lasting decisions that transform their lives through a close examination of personal habits and wellness goals.

Educating from the viewpoint that the body IS the inherent healer and that psycho-emotive states influence pain levels manifested in the body, her work focuses on an integrative medical model designed to treat the person, not just the disease.
