Atelier Palestra was founded in 2018 by Christina and Julie, two dedicated and knowledgable therapists in complimentary fields, who met while collaborating and treating wrestlers in Montreal. Armed with expertise and a common passion, the two united to create a space where they could teach and treat their athletes.


Derived from the ancient Greek and Roman term, a palestra is a wrestling school or gymnasium; an arena where knowledge is exchanged and crafts are honed. An atelier is a workshop or studio where artists gather to create. It is through these ideas that the name Atelier Palestra was born.

Atelier Palestra is more than just a clinic, it is a way of life. The team is dedicated to finding ways to optimize their clients' well-being, allowing them to uncover the healthiest, happiest, and highest functioning versions of themselves.
