Definition of concepts

Posturologyis the study of the postural system

“Posture is an unconscious phenomenon, which regulates itself automatically in order to orient the body in space, with the aim of optimizing the gesture, whether sporty or not. In the event of erroneous information(s) coming from the postural sensors (inner ears, eyes, podal supports (feet), dental occlusion, etc.), the balance and the precision of the gesture are altered. Our body can find compensation strategies up to a limit point. The consequences, linked to the postural disorder, occur when this point is exceeded. »

Doctor Nicolas MEYER, sports doctor, posturology.

Thus, posturology helps to find and keep the balance between all the systems.

Functional Neurology

Functional neurologyis based on neuroplasticity, the ability of your nervous system to strengthen existing neurological pathways and create new ones. It targets clusters of neurons that aren't working together the way they're supposed to, in various places across the central nervous system.

A functional neurological disorder is a condition in which there is a problem with how the nervous system works and how the brain and body send and/or receive signals, rather than a structural disease process (e.g. physical injury of a nerve).

This non-drug approach offers new hope to people suffering from a variety of recurrent physical and/or neurological problems where little or no improvement is observable by traditional approaches.

Erect posture is a neurological act depending on the quality of the sensory information received.



Sometimes the brain puts physical blockages voluntarily to avoid an injury (reduced mobility to protect a joint for example). Thus, the body generated a functional adaptation as a means of compensation.

Injury, muscle or other discomfort may result from a functional adaptation of the body.

What we already know: For example, during an ankle limitation, there is a good chance that we put more weight on the opposite leg during our movements. Thus, one can observe the appearance of discomfort in the knee, hip and back on the opposite side.


What we must add to our model of understanding: In the event that there is a sensory disorder or poor positioning of the foot and not a physical limitation, the same compensatory phenomenon can be observed.


Moreover, an injury, other than traumatic, can take several months/years to appear. And so, the source of the problem may come from somewhere other than the symptomatic area.


In either situation, there are mechanisms put in place by the brain to protect the body.


We remove the mechanisms at the source and the body normalizes itself.

"Some authors (Bricot, Fecteau) believe that morphostatic asymmetries, through the 'constraints' they cause, can be the basis of many painful pathologies of the musculoskeletal system"


Conclusion :

“there is a definite correlation between pain in the musculoskeletal system and the importance of morphostatic postural asymmetries”

“There is a correlation between cessation of activities and the importance of morphostatic postural asymmetries. »

Kinesiology is the study of the dynamics of human movement (the acquisition of motor skills) as well as its components (anatomical, physiological, neurological, biochemical, biomechanical, neuromotor, psychological) in interaction with its environment.


More simplistically, we can say that kinesiology is also defined as human kinetics or the scientific study of human movement. The word comes from the Greek word "kinesis" which means "to move". (Canadian Kinesiology Alliance)


The kinesiologistis the expert healthcare professional in human movement who uses physical and motor activity for prevention, treatment and performance.

The kinesiologist works to improve human motor performance on several levels.

The exercise of kinesiology consists of evaluating the dynamics of a person's movement, determining and ensuring the implementation of an intervention or treatment plan which, through physical activity, aims to optimize performance. motor of the human being in interaction with his environment. (Federation of Kinesiologists of Quebec)

Kinésiologie intégrée

Integrated kinesiology

Integrated kinesiology is a holistic approach with simple principles and amazing results.


Did you know that your body's cells record everything you've been through since birth? Integrated kinesiology is a global method creating communication with the memories of the body by means of specific muscle tests to detect the links, blockages and causes that incite different imbalances. Our body speaks to us through all its ills. Illness is the “evil said”.


With the help of integrated kinesiology, your body guides us to identify imbalances in the body, caused by one or more aspects: structural (skeleton, muscles, organs, viscera, nervous system), biochemical (metabolism, nutrition, nerve impulses) , energetic (meridians, chakras) or psychic (emotional).


This very personal and scientific approach is used to reduce persistent pain.

Naturopathy  is the philosophy, art and science that aims to provide human beings with the highest possible degree of health by teaching them to manage their lifestyles correctly. His approach is holistic. It is interested in the individual as a whole within his environment.

It is the medicine of common sense, in which patients and practitioners collaborate fully to take advantage of the faculty of self-regulation, self-adaptation and self-healing of the human organism. Naturopathy has a dimension that is both curative, but also and above all preventive.

Recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization) as being the 3rd traditional medicine, alongside Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine, it is part of an integrative and complementary approach.


It is made up of the words “nature” and “path”. It therefore literally means, the path of nature or the natural way.

The origin of naturopathy dates back to Hippocrates, a Greek physician in 400 BC.
The 5 principles of naturopathy, established by Hippocrates, are:

o     In the first place do no harm (primum non nocere)
o     Nature heals (vis medicatrix naturæ)
o     Identify and treat the cause (tolle causam)
o     Detoxify and purify the body (deinde purgare)
o     Naturopathy teaches (docere)

Chinese Energetic Medicine

Chinese Energetic Medicine, rooted in ancient Chinese philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), is a holistic system that views health as a balance of vital energy, or Qi (pronounced "chee"), within the body. Here are some key components of Chinese Energetic Medicine:


Qi (Vital Energy): Central to Chinese Energetic Medicine is the concept of Qi, an invisible life force that flows through channels or meridians in the body. Maintaining a harmonious flow of Qi is vital for health, and imbalances can lead to illness.


Yin and Yang: The philosophy of Yin and Yang represents the dualistic nature of the universe. In the context of the body, Yin is associated with stillness, substance, and receptivity, while Yang is associated with activity, function, and energy. Balancing Yin and Yang is crucial for well-being.


Five Elements: Chinese Energetic Medicine categorizes the body's functions and substances into five elements—Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Each element corresponds to specific organs, emotions, and seasons. Maintaining harmony among these elements is essential for health.


Acupressure: These practices involve stimulating specific points along the meridians to balance the flow of Qi. Acupuncture uses thin needles, while acupressure involves applying pressure to these points.

Chinese Energetic Medicine is a comprehensive system that considers the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit. It has been practiced for thousands of years and continues to be a significant aspect of healthcare in China and beyond. While rooted in ancient philosophy, it's important to note that modern Chinese medicine integrates traditional practices with contemporary medical knowledge.
