Osteopathy is a manual therapy modality. It's main goal is to help rescore the human body's natural equilibrium and harmony (“treating the whole body”). Osteopathy is a discipline based on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body. The patient is treated with a global approach, so rather than simply treating the symptom, the body is treated as a whole entity. Patients of all ages benefit from osteopathy.
The osteopath, with the use of different techniques will treat the body on many different levels such as articular, visceral, cranial and fascial. This approach differentiates itself from others because it is aimed at discovering the cause of the problem rather than simply focusing on the symptoms.
The key is to keep the different structures of the human body mobile. A loss in mobility causes functional as well as circulatory and/or nervous limitations. This loss in mobility can cause repercussions locally and possibly distally by forcing the body to compensate in other areas in order to maintain its equilibrium.
The osteopath's job, therefore, is to make sure that the different elements of the body remains mobile in order to allow the body to function properly and remain healthy. In hopes of offering optimal care to our patients, osteopathy has become one of the essential services offered at Centre de santé 2bFit.

Acupuncture points are found on the surface of your body and at very specific locations along themeridians. Mapped and documented for thousands of years by Asian societies (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, etc.), these points have their own characteristics and indications.
The selection and method of stimulation of these points are determined by the acupuncturist and based on Traditional Chinese Medicine energy and pattern diagnosis. By selecting a combination of points, the treatment will have an effect on one or more bodily organs, areas or functions, and therefore act on a set of varied symptoms related to the initial cause of the imbalance.
Acupuncture is a unique therapeutic method that enables us to influence and treat the interior by using a synergy of points on the exterior aspect of our bodies.
