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.

It is in this spirit of creating a new educational tool that the CIFOA, International Training Center in Aquatic Osteopathy, was born. With this new identity I have completely revised my training, seeking to transmit to you in the most complete way possible this wonderful tool that is Aquatic Osteopathy.

I will welcome you to a decor created by the painter Robert Di Credico, which invites you to let go.


With CIFOA, we keep the essentials and add all those little things that make the difference...

What changes with CIFOA...

The place: The Méditrine Space is a real tool in itself, a place thought out and designed for training in aquatic osteopathy.
* 2 swimming pools instead of one to have more room to practice but not be bothered by the water movements of others.

* A large, very bright theory room.

* Meals taken on site and provided by a caterer to stay in our bubble while adapting to your tastes.

* A large space dedicated to table practice.

* A training center in the countryside, in the middle of the meadows, a few steps from Mont Revard.

Duration: 6 days of training is really ideal to gain enough experience and leave ready to work with patients.
* The possibility for osteopaths coming from abroad to train in a single stay.

What I have preciously preserved with CIFOA...

Small groups for personalized learning where I have time to work with each of you.

Natural swimming pools heated to 35°C treated without chlorine or salt but meeting ARS standards.

Water energized thanks to two vortices to work in “Living” and more conductive water.

Delicious lunches taken together and included in the price of the training to deepen the discussions.

Accessibility and adaptation to audiences with disabilities

In a desire for adaptability, our training establishment is committed to an approach to accessibility for people with disabilities.

After an audit and the completion of work to bring it up to standard, our establishment obtained ERP 5 classification certification, issued by the certifying body APAVE.

A disability representative has been appointed; he is responsible for measuring the adaptations necessary for students with disabilities throughout the training action, he is responsible for guiding, informing and supporting people with disabilities.

You can contact the disability representative Ségolène Vilpert at: or by email:
