Osteopathy  //


Fascia are thin, fibrous, malleable membranes that cover and envelop muscles, joints, bones, ligaments, arteries and internal organs. They thus form like a net that supports and connects all these elements together. Along with tendons and ligaments, they are part of what is called connective tissue.

When they are healthy, the fascias are relaxed, and the skin can slide through them without difficulty. Sensitive to stress, bad postures, shocks and traumas, the fascias can harden, contract, even create “  adhesions  thus hindering the freedom of movement and joints. These hindrances can lead to pain, muscle spasms and tension, and subsequently to muscle and joint discomfort, imbalance in body alignment and poor lymphatic circulation.

The fascias are animated by a slow and very subtle movement. The therapist is trained to perceive this internal activity and feel under his fingertips how the client feels in his body. By delicate pressure, he can therefore release the structures and restore the fluidity and natural movements of the fascias, which would reactivate the body's self-healing process.

Fasciatherapy is a comprehensive approach developed in France and now well established in Quebec.
