Osteopathy: A Global Approach


Osteopathy is a comprehensive approach that takes into account the different systems of our body (musculoskeletal, cardio-respiratory, digestive, urinary, gynecological). It is for this reason that the reasons for consultation are so numerous ranging from back pain, torticolli, herniated disc to abdominal pain, migraines, anxiety, problem with the jaw, etc …

The approach is defined by manual techniques whether it is tensioning, osteo-articular, visceral and cranial techniques, which aim to give the body the freedom and mobility necessary for an optimal general function, and thus promote the recovery and wellness.

Osteopathy is aimed at clients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly.
