ELDOA Method

(Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation Osteo-Articulaire)

VPC is the first to bring the ground breaking ELDOA Method to Vancouver, offering ELDOA and Myofascial Stretching classes and private sessions.  ELDOA is an acronym for the revolutionary technique developed by French osteopath Guy Voyer – and is most easily translated as “Longitudinal Osteo-Articular Decoaptation of the Spine”.


More simply put - it creates space and balance throughout the body!  With the ELDOA Method, you can:


  • Increase flexibility with balanced muscle tone and performance

  • Improve posture, mobility, blood circulation, and organ function

  • Reduce stress and excess tension, joint inflammation and muscle pain

  • Promote faster recovery from injuries or sports training

  • Relief of chronic and acute spine, hip and shoulder pain

  • Alleviate the negative effects associated with scoliosis, arthritis, disc degeneration and many other conditions


ELDOAs are specific postures that progressively create tension along complex fascial chains in the body. Regular practice will actively make space in the joints while strengthening and normalizing the function of the connective tissue along the spine and throughout the body. The exercises can be easily practiced on your own between classes for maximum effectiveness.


Myofascial Stretching is a strengthening and stretching technique that creates real and lasting change in the elasticity of the muscle fibers and surrounding connective tissue. All muscles are wrapped in connective tissue effectively linking them in chains throughout the entire body. It can be difficult to stretch muscles if the connective tissue is not elastic, much like trying to elongate muscles that are wrapped in leathery sleeves. Myofascial stretches put the fascia into tension to normalize the length and function of the fascia and muscle chains. This will correct structural imbalances and release excess tension across the joints to reduce inflammation and pain.
