Osteopathy is a “manual medicine.” Its main therapeutic objective is to restore mobility and the functions of the body by treating symptoms, the root causes of pain, and functional problems. Osteopaths rely on their hands to identify the position, quality and mobility of body tissues.
The osteopath’s manual interventions stimulate the physiological systems of the human body and act upon the following tissues:
Articular: foot, ankle, knee, hip, elbow, shoulder, maxilla, skull, spinal column…
Visceral: liver, stomach, bladder, intestines…
Vascular, respiratory, nervous, skeletal, connective…
Massage therapy is a manipulative therapy that works with the body’s soft tissue, (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascias,) in order to alleviate sometimes very deep accumulated tension caused by or resulting in stress, injury and trauma. The right touch and the presence of another can have a positive impact on emotional and psychic levels.
Acupuncture is an integral part of traditional oriental médicine. Founded on a holistic, energy-based approach, acupuncture acts on the Qi traveling through the meridians of the body. Needles inserted on the surface of the skin allow the acupunturist to stimulate specific points along the meridians, adjust the Qi and have an effect on corresponding physiological and organic functions.
Physiotherapy is a therapy that aims to maximise, restore and maintain strength, physical function, and motor skills using physical means, such as manipulative therapy, exercises, massage and functionality. (Please note that our clinic does not use any methods involving electrotherapy or machines, such as ultrasound, TENS, etc.)
The therapist ensures that the client returns to his or her former, or even an optimal, state of fitness. With his or her profound knowledge of the human body, the physiotherapist has the clinical ability to assess, diagnose and treat the symptoms of illnesses, injuries and disabilities.
Psychology is a science centered on the understanding of human behaviour and the acquisition of multiple techniques that will help the client resolve personal difficulties.
Psychologists assess and diagnose the behavioural, emotional, and cognitive problems of their clients, advise them and treat them. They also conduct research and put theories around behaviour and mental processes into practice.
Nutrition and Dietetics
Nutrition concerns the dietary habits of human beings, as well as the different social, economic, and technological factors that determine one’s dietary environment. This service is for people with dietary restrictions, for those who would like to return to a healthy body weight, or for people who would like to have a balanced diet.
Homeopathy is based on the premise that the body possesses a “vital energy” required for generating a natural healing process. Based on this premise, homeopathy seeks to find ways to stimulate the natural healing process inherent in a living organism, looking for causes of illness on physical and psychic levels. All homeopathic remedies made from animals, plants or minerals correspond to specific symptoms. With this in mind, homeopathy endeavours to meticulously identify all the patient’s symptoms in order to trigger or sustain the appropriate healing process.
Herbalism and Naturopathy
Herbalism and Naturopathy is the art of caring for a person’s global health with the help of medicinal plants and/or vitamins, minerals and bioenergy. In clinical herbalism/naturopathy, we do a holistic health check, including dietary habits, lifestyle, exercise, etc. We then suggest dietary or other changes, and of course plants in different forms.
