Since my move to Aix les Bains in 2006, I have trained more than 1000 osteopaths in Aquatic Osteopathy. These many hours of transmissions taught me a lot and changed my way of teaching as well as the content of the training.

In 2006, most of the osteopaths who were training came out of "curiosity" and very few of them settled into aquatic osteopathy. Since aquatic osteopathy has developed, the context has changed and today I support numerous creations of aquatic osteopathy practices across the four corners of France. It was therefore time for me to really evolve my training as well as the training location.

So first of all I created a new place: the Espace Méditrine

The Meditrine Space is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to Health and Well-Being and designed for training in Aquatic Osteopathy. Located 10 minutes from the city center of Aix les Bains, in the heart of the small village of Trévignin, at an altitude of 650m and in the middle of meadows, it is the ideal place to reconnect with yourself before connect to others...

It is in this spirit of creating a new educational tool that the CIFOA, International Training Center in Aquatic Osteopathy, was born. The CIFOA website allows you to easily find all the information on aquatic osteopathy training and organize your stay as best as possible.

The training courses are reserved for exclusive osteopaths or osteopathy students from the 5th year.

For better learning, the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 8 trainees per training.

My background:

6 years of full-time training at the Ecole Supérieure d’Osteopathy in Paris and training in Canada in 2003 to learn aquatic osteopathy from Michel Dufresne.

I completed my final thesis on aquatic osteopathy and I obtained a European doctorate in Geneva also on this subject.

European Major in Geneva in 2006.

Given the results obtained, I decided to open the first aquatic osteopathy practice in Europe.

Since 2006, I have organized training in aquatic osteopathy in Aix les Bains for osteopaths and since 2022 in Trévignin at the Espace Méditrine.

More than 95% of trained osteopaths say they are completely satisfied with the training.
