Definition of osteopathy

Osteopathy is defined as a manual medicine, interest in functional disorders of the human body as a whole. It is distinguished from other means of intervention in manual therapy, assessing the interrelationships, both mechanical and neurophysiological, ultimately to discover the cause of the problem. Indeed, the primary problem often can cause a series of complications and symptoms at bay. They only disappear when the cause has been effectively treated. Therapeutic intervention will be specific to the type and site of the problem concerned. The osteopath uses his hands in different ways to make a diagnosis and provide osteopathic treatment. By various tests of mobility, both joint (spinal or peripheral) than visceral or brain, it assesses the status of various body systems. It employs for this purpose, different types of palpation to enable it to assess the shape, volume, consistency or tension and position of the structures evaluated. The osteopath has its limits, but it will guide you in case of diseases or symptoms requiring a medical management.

The osteopath has an impact on the curative, but also to preserve the mechanical quality and to avoid incidents, muscle and joint injuries, to increase the extent of the physical performance and reduce recovery time after exercise. Osteopathy is interested not just a symptom or disease, but considers the patient as a whole to be apprehended as a whole. For this, the osteopathic art is through accurate diagnosis and appropriate manual techniques, to address functional problems, restore and preserve health, and prevent disease outbreaks. It does not cure degenerative diseases, genetic, infectious, or neoplastic. However, it can have a positive effect on the consequences of these diseases (especially pain) and can help the body fight the disease more easily. In summary, osteopathy is both an art, a philosophy and a science.

Definition of orthotherapy – physiotherapy

Orthotherapy was created in early 1970 by an American surgeon, Dr. Arthur Michele. It is a preventive method of self treatment, designed to correct the posture of his young patients to fight their bone and muscle imbalances and prevent their surgeries. He added processing muscle therapy slow and gradual correction and exercises provided. The approach was introduced in Quebec around 1975. At that time, physical therapists as Yves Paré have further enriched by incorporating some techniques from Europe. Since then, orthotherapy continued to evolve as the experience of many professionals.
Postural education is an important element of orthotherapy. Good posture reduces the stress on muscles and joints and contributes to the well-being. It would relax the body, making it more fluid and reduce spasms and contractures. It also provides more tone and give more ease of movement. Orthotherapy is therefore aimed both athletes to people recovering from an accident or surgery. It would improve breathing and blood and lymph circulation, thus promoting the elimination of toxins and better supply of nutrients and oxygen to body cells.

Definition of massage therapy

Massage therapy is one of the oldest therapies against physical pain. It is a therapeutic treatment of treating or relieving pain by maneuvers with the hands and different therapeutic ointments or oils. In the context of overall health, care, massage may involve several techniques whose goal is relaxation of muscle groups and relaxation of the individual.
For the massage, one becomes aware of the tensions inscribed in his body, and in the body of another. These tensions are the result of conflict, stress, fatigue, poor posture, etc.. Massage therapy is the application of a set of techniques that target the well-being of individuals through the execution of hand movements on the various living tissues. This therapy works including the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments and is as well-being physically and psychologically. The tensions are reduced and eliminated slowly. Treatment with massage therapy is used in more specific cases.


This innovative method is based on scientific facts that establish the correlation between adipose sites and hormonal activity. Developed by Charles Poliquin, world-renowned coach emeritus, the BioSignature was first used for athletes. The method allowed him to increase the physical and neurological its customers but also to detect among others the risk of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, sleep disorders and other metabolic and hormonal disorders. The BioSignature is therefore aimed at those seeking to achieve optimal physical and psychological health.

Active Release Techniques (A.R.T)

This technique was created by an American chiropractor Michael Leahy. ART is a patented technology that processes tissues. It is a technique that uses active movements of the patient to treat nervous problems types, muscle, ligament and old adhesions. The A. ARCEP is a method of choice because it treats the adhesions which are caused by overuse of muscles creating most of the conditions listed so against headache, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, plantar fascitis, etc.. Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The therapist uses her hands to evaluate the movement of muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining the tension on the tissue led to an accuracy while making very specific movements. These treatment protocols are unique to ART They allow the therapist to identify and correct the specific problems affecting the patient.


The goal of MAT is to activate the weak muscle which in turn creates tension in the other muscle. Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to contract to help stabilize the joints. MAT addresses the problem at the source and not the muscle is stretched. This helps to restore normal body alignment, reduce pain and reduce damage. All that is necessary is to turn the weak muscle with repetitive sent to the brain.


The neuro-proprioceptive taping is an effective and safe growing utilisé.Son effect on neurophysiology allows, for different applications, modulating pain, muscle tension and proprioception of the patient. Essential feature in the tool box of health care, the neuro-proprioceptive taping takes place in the treatment of various diseases of all kinds.

Our therapy:

The originality of our methods comes from the fact that it does not use any instrument between the patient and the practitioner. Our therapeutic practice is based on the anatomy, biomechanics, neurology, physiology, pathology, and a mixture of all our techniques (osteopathy, orthotherapy, physical therapy, ART, MAT, proprioceptive taping, etc.)..
Going beyond the symptom, we are interested in the history of trauma to his body and older who are sometimes gone unnoticed. However, the true originality of our techniques is to prevent disease before and after to prevent recurrence.

Course of treatment:

A consultation lasts about 45 minutes and takes place in three stages:
1) A questionnaire is completed during the first session. Issues that concern us most are about old injuries, diseases, infections, fractures, falls, pain or illness.
2) The review is carried out in their underwear to visually assess the static body (scoliosis, lordosis, body asymmetry and dynamics). The osteopath is testing different parts of the body in order to find problem areas.
3) The treatment is based on manual techniques, but we choose, of course, the techniques most appropriate and least traumatic for the patient. Rehabilitation specializes in the prevention, emergency care and rehabilitation following a musculoskeletal injury. It is intended primarily for people who have suffered injuries during sports activities during daily physical activities or in the workplace.
