For 70% of health problems related to osteopathy 3 or 4 consultations with the osteopath are enough to meet the patient’s short-term goals. The other 30% will only ask for one or two sessions of care, or will ask for several, as in the case of certain diseases or chronic conditions.

In order to achieve such efficiency, how do these appointments take place? The osteopath first welcomes the patient. When it comes to a first meeting, and there is an opening of file, the osteopath does first;


This questionnaire allows him to know the reasons for consulting the client, his symptoms, and to make a health check. It will take into account the patient’s recent or former accidents and traumas, medical history, stress experiences, type of job or daily work (ergonomics).

It is very important to also consider the psychological state, the level of fatigue, and the lifestyle habits (physical activities, diet, sleep, etc.) of the client. And when he (or she) has undergone operations or is taking medication, the osteo must also be informed. It then proceeds to a;


He then observes the subject in different positions. It does mobility and vitality tests. In particular, he uses palpation for various tests. That is why he particularly developed this sense. The whole allows him to make an osteopathic diagnosis . Its purpose is to identify the cause(s) of the problem. From there, he establishes one;


This plan can evolve during care, as the perception of the causes is refined, relaxations are obtained, and blockages give way. During the;


Osteopathic treatment employs a lot of manual techniques. Sometimes it works at the muscular or articular level, other times at the cranial, visceral or fluid level. Sometimes it also treats vascular, cutaneous, energetic, etc., as needed. The goal is to revive the mobility and vitality of the body’s tissues. This is the basis of self-healing. In some cases the session ends with;


The osteopath makes recommendations about exercises, lifestyle, diet, self-treatment instructions to follow at home, etc. When a referral is necessary, the osteopath is in contact with other professionals. (doctor, ergonomist, acupuncturist, naturopath, posturologist, nutritionist, trainer, physiotherapist, dentist, etc.).


For an osteopathic treatment the most appropriate clothes are soft pants and jerseys, with a little elasticity, or underwear with which you are comfortable, or clothes like those you would wear for summer sports. We choose a garment that does not oppose restrictions to body movements and osteopathic evaluation.


An appointment with the osteopath lasts about 45 minutes. Sometimes it lasts up to an hour. After treatment the client usually continues his normal activities. Some will feel a relaxation, others the desire for a nap, and some on the contrary a surplus of energy. A trap awaits the latter. They finally feel ready to accomplish great tasks, which they have been postponing for a long time? … It’s not the right time!

Indeed, on the day of treatment and sometimes the next day it is better to avoid excessive effort and large energy expenditure. The treatment concentrated the patient’s vital energy in the parts of the body where repairs are needed.

This energy saving will allow the vitality and biodynamics of the body to remain concentrated in these areas, where the activity of regeneration and healing unfolds following the treatment. Thus the treatment acts more deeply. The patient benefits more.


With the help of the osteopath, and depending on his state of health and the goals he is looking for, the client will determine if there is a need to consider another treatment. If so, he can take his reservation directly with the osteopath at the end of the session, or do it at the time that suits him online, or on the phone.

It is good that the patient takes note of the reactions of his body following the care. This information will be useful to adjust the plan of the next treatment, in case there is one.
