About Us

JOHANNE SABOURIN RPT


A 1983 McGill graduate, Johanne Sabourin has over 35 years of practice under her belt, over 22 years as a pelvic floor physiotherapist. Her approach is global, looking at the whole body to assess which factors are influencing the problem at end. She has a lot of training under her belt: muscular imbalance, treatment of functional instability of the pelvis/back and chest, manual therapy, neural mobilization, visceral (organs) mobilizations… to name a few. In the past, she has worked in private practice with Diane Lee and Associates where she has opened her mind to a global approach. She then moved on to her own private practice in Coquitlam which has been open for over 10 years. She has also worked part-time (one day a week) for four years with the uro-gynecology team at St-Paul hospital (Vancouver, B.C.), giving her the opportunity to attend the rounds and participate in a research project trying to identify neural factors possibly influencing the rate of post-operative pelvic pain. The results of this study was published in the Neurourology &Urodynamics journal in the fall of 2018. She has presented at the Western Society of Pelvic Medicine conference twice, at the Canadian Society of Pelvic Medicine meeting once as well as at the International Continence Society  conference once each. She was also a presenter at the UBC General medical Practitioners Obstetrics training day in 2018.

In her other life, she is the proud mother of a 22y.o. son and sings with the Vancouver Bach Choir.


On your  Journey

Johanne Sabourin started with a simple premise: Make available to every women the health resources she needs to live a healthy & active life. At the same time, educate each women about the importance of preventative health measures. The implication of the client in the treatment goal setting is very important. This idea still drives us today, some 15 years later. Just as important, office staff is second to none. We think you’ll notice the difference immediately when you step foot inside our doors.
