CIRCULATION. TONE. AWARENESS.
ELDOA (Etierement Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation OsteoArticulaire) is a revolutionary stretching method for the spine created by renowned osteopath Guy Voyer of Marseilles, France.
Guy developed an ELDOA exercise for every articulation in the spine starting at the base of the skull and ending with the sacro-illiac joint. Disc compression existing at any level of the spine can be addressed through a specific ELDOA exercise.
The goal of each ELDOA exercise is to create fascial tension above and below the joint or disc that one is trying to “open up” or decompress. The benefits include:
- Reduced vertebral compression
- Improved circulation
- Spinal disc re-hydration
- Increased muscle tone and awareness
Disc hydration is an important and misunderstood factor in spinal health. Our discs are like sponges; when the area is properly hydrated and the discs are not compressed they draw water in. This hydration is necessary to maintain the suppleness that is present in a healthy disc.
If the disc is dehydrated and compressed it will dry out and become brittle. It is in this state that nerve compression and inflammation are more likely to occur.
Virtually every function in our body relies on nervous system impulses from our spine. It is crucial to actively preserve and restore the condition of the spine in order to achieve and maintain optimal health.
ELDOA trained professionals are hard to come by, that is another reason our center is so unique—our Founder has been trained and certified in this discipline.
