OSTEOPATHY / MANUAL THERAPY

Osteopathic manipulative treatment consists of a wide range of manual therapy techniques that are used to optimise function and reduce pain. Osteopaths typically treat people for musculoskeletal pain, most commonly back and neck pain, and for the promotion of general health and treatment of some health conditions such as sleep and digestive disturbances.

Osteopaths may also offer advice on posture, ergonomics, exercise and lifestyle in conjunction with reassurance and encouragement to be active rapidly and give patient’s autonomy.

The term ‘Osteopathy’ is misleading, implying that the session is only based on the bony system. Rather, it takes into account an array of functionally correct postural balances based on various systems of the body (visceral, ligamentous, nervous, respiratory or endocrinal) but also psychological as well as social, which makes it holistic and integrative.

Osteopaths do not prescribe medication and do not interfere, but rather interact in a complementary manner with the medical profession. Each session lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour and the number of sessions varies accordingly. In most cases the result is ongoing improvement and well-being.

MAIN METHODS OF OSTEOPATHY / MANUAL THERAPY

INTEGRAL OSTEOPATHY

INTEGRAL OSTEOPATHY

INTEGRAL OSTEOPATHY is the widest osteopathic approach to understand and facilitate a therapeutic change. Based on gentle touch for diagnostics and treatment, it encompasses all osteopathic techniques including the cranial approach, latest neuroscientific research, optimum supplementary lifestyle advice and custom-made movement solutions.

CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY

CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY

Cranio-facial osteopathy, craniosacral therapy or cranial osteopathy are particular approaches seeking for trauma release in a light touch fashion. Looking to a body as a whole and connected through the complex facial network, discriminating through deep listening, the cranial approach makes subtle but profound changes in one’s body. CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY is notably adapted for babies’ infants and children.

PERINATOLOGY + PEDIATRIC OSTEOPATHY

PERINATOLOGY + PEDIATRIC
OSTEOPATHY

The field of perinatology (pre-partum, post-partum and birth) is particularly adapted for osteopathic treatment and care. Pregnancy is a special moment in a woman’s life; the anatomical, postural and physiological changes are as potent as they are limited in time and space. The way and consciousness a woman will put into her pregnancy often determines her birth and postpartum experience. Our osteopaths (also doulas) can accompany women on their overall journey, exploring the most adapted way to her needs and empowerment for this very special time of her life.
Do not hesitate to contact us for global care including birth preparation and postnatal baby and mom assessment.
