Frequently asked questions
What can I expect from a session ?
During the first session, I will ask you a few questions in order to understand where your problems might come from and in order to get informed about eventual contraindications.
I will then have a look at your posture and test your joints, muscles and fascias in your whole body, then work on those structures in order to restore mobility where it is lacking.
How long does a session last ?
Usually between 45 and 60 minutes, depending on your pathology.
Will I be asked to take off my clothes ?
It is better to be in your underwear, but you can wear shorts or sports clothing. Just don’t wear jeans or clothes that are too tight and won’t allow large amplitude movements (for example of the hip).
How many sessions will I need ?
In case of an acute and precise pathology, a single session is usually sufficient. If your problem is more of a chronic kind, symptoms get usually diminished after the first session but one or more other sessions are indicated in order to eliminate problems and to get the body used to his new healthy state.
What are the indications and advice after a session?
The most important thing after a session is to let your body rest. Sports and other physical works are therefore contraindicated during 24-48 hours. Try to rest and drink water. You may feel tired and cold after the session. It is also recommended to avoid extreme or unusual positions or sitting with legs crossed.
It hurts even more after the session / I don't feel any difference, has the session been ineffective?
It is very common to have sore muscles during 2-3 days after a session. The body is not used to this kind of effort, and has to get used to a new state in which pain and tensions will tend to disappear.
Some patients only notice a difference after one week, and in some cases you will have to wait a few days for a possible inflammation to disappear. It is important to understand that our job aims to restore mobility, and then the body keeps on healing by itself.
Can I pay by card ?
No, you will have to pay with cash, bank transfer or Digicash.
What is osteopathy?
It is a manual medical discipline (both diagnostic and therapeutic) of the whole body, of the person as a whole, in search of tissues pain, whether it is articular, muscular, fibrous or visceral related.
The human body is a complicated organism, made up of multiple systems (osteo-articular, cardiovascular, nervous, digestive ...) interacting between one another for an optimal function. When the function of one of these systems is altered (following a trauma, an inadequate movement, a harmful postural habit, stress, overwork, illness, unhealthy food habits or inappropriate medication ...), a repercussion on other systems is therefore possible. Therefore, the osteopath does not only aim to treat the perceived symptoms: he also looks for every possible cause of those, then performs a specific manual treatment to restore mobility and elasticity where they are lacking.
