ELDOA is a methodology incorporating a variety of postures developed by French Osteopath Guy Voyer. The acronym translates to longitudinal osteoarticular (bones and joints) decoaptation (opening) stretches. Each posture is carefully designed to "create space" within a precise joint or segment of the spine using myofascial tension and muscle contraction. This affects the associated tissue, ligaments, nervous tissues, and organs. These are postures for the spine, shoulders, hips,ribs, and skull. The goal isn't to gain flexibility. When you stretch, you elongate the muscle, but when performing ELDOA, you are contracting muscle. ELDOA works with the nervous system, rather than on muscle flexibility.
BENEFITS OF ELDOA
- Improve your posture
- Improve joint mechanics
- Relieve joint pain
- Reduce pressure on spinal discs
- Build muscle tone
- Injury prevention/recovery
- Increase blood flow
ORIGIN OF ELDOA
Dr. Voyer started his career as a trainer and later studied medicine within a variety of specializations. He went on to study osteopathic medicine in Europe and completed several doctoral programs. He began studying back pain in the 1970s and over the course of the next 10 years, developed the ELDOA postures as a way to treat the spine.
ELDOA FOR EVERYONE!
Though many ELDOA clients are former and current high-level athletes, you don't have to be one or be experiencing pain to benefit from ELDOA. ELDOA can help with balance, strengthen the spine, and reduce the pressure on discs...all of which help to keep you healthy. ELDOA complements your current workouts as part of a well-rounded fitness routine. Please feel free to contact Denise Herrera (480-239-7381) if you have any additional questions.
