Graduated in 2009 as an osteopath,I started my own practice and steadily developed this into two practical locations in Bruges: Assebroek and Sint-Andries.
The master’s degree in osteopathy, combined with my previous education in sports and movement sciences, allows me, as an osteopath, to be busy daily with my greatest passion:human anatomy, (patho)physiology, neurology and biomechanics.
Besides my working in the practices in Bruges, I like to pass on the knowledge and experience gained as a lecturer at the International Academy of Osteopathy and am also coordinator for the further training courses Sportosteopathy for graduate osteopaths.
Inspired by my patients and a multidisciplinary network in and around Bruges, driven by science, I strive to restore, maintain or optimiseyour physical functioning as optimally as possible.

As an osteopath in Bruges I have both a curative and a preventive role. This means that the focus is on dealing with complaints and injuries that are already present, but also to prevent them.
An absolute goal in this practice is a scientifically based way of working. I attach great importance to the use of scientifically based research and treatment techniques. The use of the DIERS Medical research equipment allows me to combine the functional movement research with measurable data. This integrated research method ensures that the treatment strategy takes direction more quickly, but also that we can closely monitor the outcome of the treatments.
In order to pursue this ‘Evidence Based Practice’ as well as possible, I regularly follow further training courses. You can subscribe to the newsletterbelow. I regularly keep you informed of both the general practical information and the latest insights into the approach of specific injuries or complaints. You can read these news stories on this page, but I also post regularly on linkedin, instagram or facebook.
World Health OrganizationBenchmarks for Training in Osteopathy, 2010
" Osteopathic manipulative treatment was developed as a means of facilitating normal self-regulating/self-healing mechanisms in the body by addressing areas of tissue strain, stress or dysfunction that may impede normal neural, vascular and biochemical mechanisms."
" Osteopathy, compared to usual care, is 'dominant' (higher effect at lower costs) for low back pain and cost-effective for neck pain."
John M. JonesPrinciples and Practice of Manual Therapeutics, 2002
" Central to osteopathy is a tremendous respect for the innate capacity of the human being to heal, and the physician attempts to work with the patient's physiologic and psychologic processes to obtain an optimal level of homeostasis and function."
