Classes

 

The ELDOA exercises and Myofascial Stretches (MFS) are specific techniques created by world renowned osteopath, Guy Voyer, DO. ELDOA Method classes are semi-private group classes organized by certified ELDOA Instructor, Christine Ryan, who uses a combination of these techniques to deliver the most beneficial sessions possible.

Classes are not based on a formula. Every class is designed to respect the proper progressions and order of the techniques as taught by Dr. Voyer to ensure quality. These classes will vary depending on the needs of those participating. There will be an intentional goal set for each designated class and will be ever changing to continually challenge each individual while encouraging their overall improvements.

 

Benefits OF ELDOA Method Classes

ELDOA exercises and Myofascial Stretches (MFS) are very specific and complex techniques that require strong attention to form and correct progressions. Everyone will benefit from the effects of ELDOA exercises and MFS but each person is different and without proper instruction and help from a Certified ELDOA/MFS Instructor, these techniques will not be as effective. By attending the classes, you not only receive instruction from a certified instructor but the full hour dedicated to stretching enhances the many benefits including:

  • Normalize Disc Bulges
  • Reduced Degrees of Scoliosis
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Improved Muscle Performance and Tone
  • Normalization of Visceral Function
