The ELDOA™ method is based on the osteopathic principles and uses the fascial system in your body to create space in areas and joints. They are postures that are held for 60 seconds actively.
Correct Posture is essential for everyone. Everyday, we are all fighting a hard battle against the compressive force of gravity and inactivity.
Over time, as the structure of your spine changes, if you have uncorrected forward head posture, scoliosis and other structural or acquired functional issues, you can potentially suffer chronic or unpleasant conditions such as, pinched nerves and blood vessels, headaches, muscle and tissue pain, early disc degeneration and arthritis. With ELDOAs, Segmental Reinforcements and Myofascial Stretches, you can help to re-establish your gravity line, fix your poor posture and improve the biomechanics of your spine.
In the ELDOA Lessons you will learn the most effective stretches and exercises to normalize the fascia throughout your body and help heal spinal injuries, such as bulging discs and sciatica. These techniques produce such measurable results that they are being prescribed specifically to professional athletes and post surgical clients alike.
ELDOA Lessons provide you with the knowledge and tools to prevent back injuries and will delay disc degeneration. By correcting your posture and creating balance in your structure before there is a problem, you may avoid the damaging effects on your joints and spine.

«There is an ELDOA for almost every joint in the body»
What is ELDOA? ELDOA is a French acronym that translated stands for “stretching” in the longitudinal axis to create decoaptation (separation) of the osteo-articular joints. It is a postural exercise designed to decompress-or give space to-a targeted joint.
It is composed by more than hundred postures held for a minute and was created by M.D., D.O. Guy Voyer taking inspiration from different methods and philosophies, such as the R. Klapp method, Niederhoffer, the Kabat method, the Brunnstrom Approach, the Bobath concept, the Mezieres method, Piret and Beziers, and Godlieve Struyf-Denis.

The ELDOA Level 1 Certification Course is a two-day course designed to teach the most frequently used ELDOA for the spine. It is structured for the instructor or individual with minimal or no formal training in the anatomy and biomechanics of the spine.
ELDOA Level 1 teaches the history of the ELDOA, the methodologies which helped form the postures, Dr. Voyers’s Educational Paradigm, and the teaching method “Learn by Doing.”
Level I is the BASE for all six levels in the ELDOA Certification Program. After completion of the two-day course, an instructor should feel quite comfortable using these ELDOA postures with clients.
