ELDOA: Improving spine and joint health with specialised movement

ELDOA was developed by French Osteopath Guy Voyer to help people deal with chronic back pain. It worked, and also proved beneficial in other areas, such as visceral function and general well-being. Applying ELDOA principles to other joints led to Voyer developing effective decompression techniques for every part of the spine and other joints.


Now, ELDOA training is used to help people gain postural strength, reduce pain, and improve joint and muscle movement. It’s about creating space around joints and discs, so they have room to move. It helps alleviate spinal compression, improve posture, and improve the condition of joints and discs.

The benefits of going through ELDOA instruction include:

  • Increase flexibility, muscle tone and posture
  • Lengthening of the spine
  • Improve recovery time after injury or surgery
  • Increase disc hydration and blood flow
  • Reduce back pain – chronic or acute
  • Reduce tension in the neck and shoulders
  • Normalise disc bulges and reduce disc inflammation
  • Improve symptoms of scoliosis
  • Improve overall wellbeing and reduce stress

ELDOA involves very specialised and complex techniques, which is why it’s important to work with a trained and certified practitioner.

Myofascial Stretching: Balance, movement, and mobility

Myofascial Stretching is about correcting the balance of the body by concentrating on these crucial fascial chains.

The specific techniques used in Myofascial Stretching are designed to correct structural imbalances and release tension across your joints, ultimately improving mobility and reducing inflammation, compression and pain. As the quality and strength of your soft tissue improves, you will notice better posture, a greater range of motion in your joins, and fewer injuries. It can even help you sleep better and feel more positive in general.

Benefits of Myofascial Stretching:

  • Improved posture
  • Reduced pain in your back, neck, hips and joints
  • Increased blood flow
  • Rehydrate the tissue
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Improve sports performance
  • Correct injuries
  • Make you more supple and resilient

To be effective, Myofascial Stretching needs to be monitored by a trained practitioner – otherwise you run the risk of making your balance issues worse.
