  • women with painful menstruation, bladder problems, endometriose, ...

Here is a list of possible issues.

Is osteopathy for you?


Osteopathy contributes by treating the cause of a wide range of conditions, like neck and back pain, scar tissue, feeling overwhelmed and much more. 


My areas of expertise also include women's problems during pregnancy and a wide range of pelvic, bladder, gynaecological and fertility problems, like painful menses or endometriose. 


As an osteopath, I help babies and toddlers with a wide range of possible conditions, like reflux, predispositions, sleeplessness, and much more.

Where to go?

In addition to running my own practice in Wilrijk, I am also a member of three multidisciplinary teams. Collaborating with practitioners with a different field of expertise (in osteopathy, physiotherapy, coaching, ...) enriches the quality of treatments I offer.

What to expect during an osteopathic consultation? Depending on your condition, it can take 30-40 minutes. 1. First, during the anamnesis, I take notes of personal data, medical history and information about the current problem. 2. Then, I do mobility tests of the spine, organs and cranium in order to detect loss of flexibility. 3. During the treatment I use different techniques in order to find the cause or the cause(s) of the disorder. 4. Finally, after the consultation, your body needs time to recover. Usually it takes a week for the body to regain its balance.

What is osteopathy? One of the most fascinating things about osteopathy is its holistic approach to the body. “Viewing the body as a whole” is not what traditional medicine does. They have a specialist for practically every part of our body: feet, intestines, nerves, hormones, etcetera. Osteopathy however is about connecting these different systems and harmonizing them in order to make the body function as a whole. Independent of a medical prescription, the osteopath looks for the causes of a disorder. The cause - and - effect relationship is often not obvious at all: lower back pain can have its origin in the intestines and an indigestion can be linked to the central nervous system. Furthermore, osteopathy is a manual discipline. We feel with our hands the condition of different structures in the body: the circulatory system, muscles, bones, ligaments, nerves, lymphatic system, the craniosacral rhythm, etcetera. Additionally, we listen to the patient's story (the emotional and mental condition). The combination of all this information allows us to answer questions like: “Why is your body in pain?” “What systems might be causing the disorder?” “Which connections can be made here?” “Where can we find tension?” All this, in order to eventually come to the most important question: "How do we rebalance the body?".

What is the self-healing mechanism of the body? One of the main principles of osteopathy is: “The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance” ( The key to consciously activate your self-healing properties is through breath and positive feelings.
