On the day of the consultation, be sure to wear sports clothing or at least comfortable clothing.

It is better to have shorts and sports bra. The consultation starts with a questionnaire in order to fix a present and past portrait of the patient. Thereafter, the osteopath performs a series of osteopathic tests to determine the dysfunctions and to get an idea of the restrictions related to the reason for consultation. Through a series of techniques, the osteopath releases the tissues so that the body can restore its balance. After the consultation, it is important to drink water to rehydrate and move in order to raise awareness of the lack of restrictions and facilitate the recovery of the balance of the body. It happens that the body continues its work 48 hours following the treatment.

Technics used

Joint mobilizations

Joint mobilizations are used on several levels. They allow the release of a joint restriction allowing ligament and surrounding muscle alignment. They boost the fluidic contribution, both capsular and vascular. They raise nerve restrictions that can cause paresthesia.

Visceral manipulations

Visceral manipulations are used in order to restore mobility to an internal organ in order to potentiate its physiological functions. These manipulations are also used to reduce joint pain related with the loss of mobility of the organ.

Cranial approach

The cranial approach is a practice of osteopathy which deals in particular with the skull. Despite the fact that it does not have a joint (apart from the articulation of the jaw), the principles of osteopathy can be applied, thanks to specific functional techniques. The slight malleability of the bones of the skull and the manner in which they are nested allows them mobility due to the variable tensions of the membranes (or fasciae) that are attached to the inside and outside of the skull. A restriction of this mobility can cause various disorders, which can be solved by restoring this mobility.

Fascial manipulations

Fascial manipulations represent the treatment of the fibrous tissues of support and contentment of the bones, muscles and organs of our body that are the fascias. The release of the fascia allows a greater ease of movements of the body and fluidic transfers through the body.
