We are a couple of osteopaths practicing in Brussels since June 2014, where we decided to settle for a while.
Our names are Douglas Kerley (from Kettering, UK) and Morgane Erpicum (from Brussels, Belgium).
Both graduates from the European School of Osteopathy (Maidstone, UK), we practised in the UK and in New Zealand where we have had the opportunity to work in a renowned Paediatrics & Obstetrics Clinic.
Drawing on this unique experience, we followed our instinct and came back home to Europe.
Morgane has also undertaken new studies in Microkinésithérapie in 2014.
Why name our practice "Tensegrity Osteopathy"?
The notion of Tensegrity has been introduced to us during our studies. Discussions with more experienced osteopaths and post-graduate courses have confirmed our feeling that this notion is at the core of what we do during treatment.
Tensegrity is a structural concept of stability, characterized by areas of compression and torsion which interact in dynamic fashion (as in the toy shown in the photographs).
Tensegrity is applicable to many areas, from architecture to biology down to the cellular level.
