Welcome to my chiropractic practice, dedicated to my Patients’ health and to the improvement of their performances.

  • I provide a full range of chiropractic services for both local Patients and expats in Belgium, integrating the latest data in neurophysiology into my long experience.  Examinations and treatments are given in a comfortable office space, with U.S. imported chiropractic equipment, and in particular, gowns for all patients.
  • My practice is a family practice with reasonable fees, especially for children who are, of course, most welcome.
  • My chiropractic services are adaptable to your busy schedule.  Lunch and evening hours are easily scheduled -- Saturdays included -- and I answer the phone 7 days a week, in case you have an immediate problem or question.
  • All documents and forms to be used by my Patients, are provided in English, French and Dutch.
  • Also, I am also happy to fill out forms & documents for your Insurance Company or for your Mutuelle.

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC ALL ABOUT ?

Chiropractic is based on what we call today the “neuro-science” which includes the anatomy, the physiology and the pathology of the nervous system.  Chiropractic is also a philosophy, a special approach to health and disease, for it helps remove the interferences from the nervous system in a non-chemical and in a non-surgical way.

Chiropractic is the ideal solution for relieving most :

  • pains and other symptoms caused by irritations of the peripheral nervous system = neuralgias 
  • stresses and their consequences caused by using our brain and our central nervous system, beyond their physiological limits or in an inappropriate way.

THE CHIROPRACTOR’S EDUCATION

The chiropractic education consists of a five year full time university curriculum.  The academic part is similar to the one taught in medicine (chemistry, anatomy, physiology, pathology etc …) but with a greater emphasis put on neurology and orthopedics.

The sixth year consists of a probationary period in the country where the candidate will practice.  At the end of that year of assistantship, there is an examination in front of an international and multi-disciplinary jury.

The Chiropractor’s education is only possible in the United States, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, France, Spain, United Kingdom and Denmark.

On the global level, the quality of the chiropractic education is controlled by the CCEI (Council of Chiropractic Education International) which garanties the equivalence of the diplomas.

WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC ?

  • Pregnant Women
    In pregnancy, we often detect :
    -  an increased swayback associated with the shifting of the center of gravity
    -  problems and instability in the sacro-iliacs and of the pelvis
    Chiropractic will allow an easier pregnancy and a faster and easier delivery !
  • Babies
    In the uterus, the baby might be poorly positioned, and during childbirth, pressures are very often exerted on his head & neck.
    Then, as the child begins to walk, the spinal curves develop and spinal problems also may start developing.  A bi-annual spinal verification during the growing years is just as important as our bi-annual visit to our dentist.

  • Children & Adolescents
    Hereditary factors, accelerated growth or abnormal fatigue may bring discomfort or pain in their upper or lower back and lead to deformities like scoliosis and kyphosis.
    It is of the utmost importance to recognize these imbalances in order to evaluate them properly and to correct them as soon and as completely as possible.
    Better results in school will very often be a real bonus !
  • Sports Men & Women
    “A healthy mind makes a healthy body” is an old proverb which wisely translates a proven recipe : an active, sane and well balanced life !  But shocks and stresses to the body and to the spine lead to different degrees of dysfunctions.  
    The Chiropractor is educated to detect and to treat them.  Both sport performance and endurance will greatly improve !

  • Seniors
    Chiropractic adjustments are always gentle and painless.  Being “adjusted” on a regular basis adds Life to years and years to Life !

 

IMPORTANCE OF NERVE CONNECTIONS

Connections are part of our nervous system which is made of :

  • a sensory part, carrying messages through our body/mind entity
  • a motor part, able only to respond to the messages it has received.  

These messages, by their quantity and their quality, can build health or impair it. This is why connections are so important : they transmit Life itself.

ABOUT “HEALING FACILITATION”

The concept of “Healing Facilitation” has come from my experience -- personal and clinical -- as well as from my education and has led me to realize that science per se has never cured anything ! So, there must be something else ...

By practicing under the “Healing Facilitation” concept, I help you to restore the functions of your nervous system and of your body/mind entity, so you can use them at their best levels. Through regaining your own power, you can then make the necessary shifts to regain the manageability of your own situation.  

This is real Health that brings you back to your own state of well-being and, at the same time, perfectly meets your needs in our rapidly changing world.

For most health problems, I recommend that you consult a Chiropractor first because the nervous system controls most of the body/mind functions and because chiropractic uses non-invasive techniques to address these problems.

These messages, by their quantity and their quality, can build health or impair it. This is why connections are so important : they transmit Life itself.

TECHNIQUES USED

I use my hands as much as possible, as they tell me more about your personal state of health.  Whenever necessary or preferred, I will also use “activators” (with 1 or 2 heads) to assist in making chiropractic adjustments in order to correct  subluxations. These two terms are specific to chiropractic.

The type of technique is always used to fit the Patient’s condition.

I have been trained in the following techniques and I provide them as part of my practice :

  • Motion Palpation
  • Sacro-Occipital Technique (S.O.T.)
  • Vector Point Cranial Technique
  • Trigger Point Technique
  • Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (A.M.C.T.)
  • Applied Kinesiology (A.K.)
  • Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T)
  • Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T.)
  • Spinal Bio-Mechanical Analysis
  • Total Body Modification (T.B.M.)
