The Clinique d'Ostéopathie Structurelle delivers its treatments in a 3,000 sq ft building in downtown Gatineau, near Montcalm and Saint-Joseph...
We house different therapists, each with particular expertise, all under one roof.
Our goal is to relieve pain caused by neuro-musculo-skelttal conditions using different disciplines, such as osteopathy and massage therapy. We also offer homeopathy and kinesiology to cover most of all aspects of the human being.
Our apprach is called 'structural' because of the distinct osteopathic vision.
Connective tissue losing its flexibility and its elasticity creates disturbances nearby and farther away in the body, depending on the neuro-vascular connections of the tissue or its functional relation with surrounding systems. Structural manipulation becomes a mechanical movement applied to different connective tissue in the body. It touches the nerve receptors causing a reflex that changes the texture of the tissue and modifies its mechanical, vascular and nervous relations at the local and distant levels, depending on the vascular and nervous structure.
Structural manipulation can be applied on all tissue in the body. We do not use the RPM concept for treatment.
