Osteopath D.O. – MRO
Chris Degens graduated from the Flanders International College of Osteopathy (FICO) in Antwerp in 2012. Before that, he worked as a physio-manual therapist in Belgium. He successfully completed his master’s thesis with scientific research (the effect of indirect treatment techniques on the fascial system) in 2020, earning the title of D.O. in osteopathy.
His interest in osteopathy arose while studying structural therapy at FICO. There, the importance of treating the human being as a whole was stressed several times. Human beings can only function properly and be healthy if the various body systems are in harmony with each other. Thus, the emotional system is also part of this, and it often plays a role that cannot be underestimated.
Starting from a thorough intake interview and proper clinical examination, he looks for the origin of the complaints, then uses targeted techniques to restore the loss of movement. This causes the fluids in the body (blood, lymph and cerebrospinal fluid) to flow optimally and activates the body’s self-healing ability (= autoregulation).
For Chris, each individual is unique due to a combination of innate characteristics and loads, which man has acquired in his life. By attending a number of continuing education courses each year, he keeps his knowledge up to date and improves his methods. It is with pleasure that he repeatedly dedicates himself to working with his clients, both children and adults, to achieve optimal results.
