Many studies have shown the major importance of early treatment of the cranial lesions in the infant as well as the essential contribution of a regular care of the development and growth of the child with preventive or curative measure.

During this 3 days, we offer you a more medical approach, more explicit on the etiologic factors of pediatric pathologies.

Involved public

We believe that sharing knowledges among different health practitioners will allow each of them to improve their practice and treatments. As such, we open the training to:

Health practitioners

Doctors, pediatricians, physiotherapists,…

End of cycle students in the health sector


Our training will allow you to significantly improve the care of your patients.

Specifically, each of you will get the following benefits :

  • Know how to carry out a global and precise osteopathic clinical examination of the infant or child.
  • To know how to carry out a precise analysis of the morphology of the skull, the overlapping sutures and their impacts on the cranial sphere (anterior and posterior cranial sphere).
  • To know how to diagnose the adaptations of the cervical spine to the constraints of the skull base.
  • To be able to develop a precise osteopathic lesion pattern in infants and children.
  • To be able to approach by the OMTs all pediatric pathologies: ENT, digestive, orthopedic, traumatic, respiratory, dermatological or occlusal.

Student in dental surgery

« As a future dental surgeon, this seminar was a wonderful opportunity to learn different treatment options. We have learned to look at treatment options with new perspectives : focusing on a specific goal, but also from a global perspective. As a result, I am sure that I will improve my future treatments and that my patients will benefit. »
