ELDOA & STRETCHING

ELDOA & STRETCHING

Unique modalities that you can find only here!
ELDOA is a revolutionary technique in the treatment of BACK PAIN. What ELDOA does is create space in between the bones, in this case the vertebrae, giving relief to the tissues and nerves in between them.
ELDOA, in english LOADS (Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches) is a restorative corrective exercise technique for the spine (and other joints of the body) created by Osteopath Dr. Guy Voyer. With ELDOA you put the fascia under tension, creating precise and still postures, that provide relief from pain and restore balance.


MYO-FASCIAL Stretching also utilizes the tension of the fascia (connective tissue). This type of stretching is safe, improves the quality of movement, performance and prevents injuries.
