ELDOA are unique postural exercises developed by internationally renowned Osteopath Dr Guy Voyer. Dr Voyer has a varied background in medicine, physiotherapy, sports medicine, traumatology, psychological medicine and Osteopathy. Having studied in many different fields he took the best in exercise physiology and developed the ELDOA as an approach to treating the spine and later all the other major joints of the body. 

 

ELDOA are highly efficient stretches to maintain the health of the spine, allowing patients to be “their own best therapist”. They help to create space in the joints and to combat the effects of gravity. As the ELDOA create space there is :

 

  • An improvement in joint mechanics

  • Increased blood flow

  • Reduced pressure on the discs of the spine

  • Reduction in pain

  • Spinal disc rehydration 

  • Better muscle tone

  • Improved posture

  • A sense of well being and awareness

  • Reduction in the effects of scoliosis,arthritis and many other conditions.

  • Strengthening of the spine and increased spinal flexibility

  • The preservation of spinal discs 

 

ELDOA literally take 1 minute to do for each joint and can be done anywhere and require no equipment. Thanks to consistent results the ELDOA method is gradually taking its place in high level sports therapy and in many Olympic training camps. They are a valuable tool for the high performance athlete as well as your average person of any age wanting to heal and maintain the spine.  There are still relatively few clinics that offer these unique stretches that are becoming highly sought after.

 

Barbra Rose studied part-time under Dr. Voyer at the Sutherland Academy of Osteopathy from 2000-2009 and was trained in the ELDOA. She has been teaching these to her patients in her private practise for many years and now is offering a group class as well.  You have the option of one-on-one in a private session in conjunction with manual therapy or a group class.
