Osteopathy for everyone

Osteopathy is a manual therapy that addresses the body as a whole.

Before treatment, an evaluation can detect mobility restrictions and myofascial tensions. With gentle techniques applied directly to the body, the osteopath seeks to restore mobility in the various bodily systems (articular, visceral, cranial, cardio-respiratory, etc.).

At the end of the session, exercises or stretches may be suggested in order to continue working at home.

Osteopathy is for everyone: babies, children, athletes, the elderly, pregnant women.

It is not necessary to have a problem to consult in osteopathy. It is possible to do sessions, as a preventive measure, in order to maintain the body in health.

In general, a session lasts about 1 hour and takes place in 3 stages:

• a health questionnaire
• a physical assessment
• and an osteopathic treatment

For the session, it is recommended to dress comfortably with adequate underwear.

Technics | approaches

Structural techniques

Structural techniques are techniques that ensure good mobility of the joints of the body.

Visceral techniques

Visceral techniques are used for the visceral structures of the body such as the organs of the neck, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. They assess the motility and parenchyma (functional tissue) of organs and their means of attachment (membranes, fasciae and ligaments).

Fascial techniques

The body is made up of a bone skeleton, but also a compound of fascia. The whole body is connected by connective tissue which structures and supports it. Fascial techniques further correct problems with scarring, retraction and fascial adhesions as well as any disturbance in this area.

Craniosacral techniques

Craniosacral techniques assess and correct dysfunctions in the skull and sacrum through work on sutures, cranial joints and membranes such as the dura mater. They are often used in cases of concussions, migraines, orofacial problems and plagiocephaly in babies.

Neuro-kinetic therapy (NKT) is an application of motor control theory, neuroscience and functional anatomy (neurobiomechanics) that helps to detect the faulty movement patterns that are found in the nerve control center. In other words, our cerebellum / brain has recorded “patterns” of muscle activation since our childhood. They are integrated and give us our perception of our movement. Sometimes these movements may not use the right muscles and overuse others.

The NKT tries to detect these bad built-in patterns and offers a reprogramming protocol that uses muscles more efficiently.

The proprioceptive K Tape has several applications. It is a tool used to reinforce proprioceptive information either for stabilization at the level of a joint, or for muscle relaxation or strengthening or it is used as a technique for drainage at the lymphatic level.

I use suction cups especially for their skin lifting application, in order to improve the different sliding planes between the fascia and the scars, to improve the lymph circulation and decrease muscle tension.
