ELDOA

What is ELDOA?

ELDOA is a method designed by French osteopath Guy VOYER. It is an acronym for 'Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptition Osteo-Articulaire' and translates to Longitudinal Stretching with Osteo-Articular Decoaptation (meaning opening the bones and joints). 

Benefits of ELDOA

ELDOA focuses on correcting fascia (connective tissue) imbalances throughout your body and consists of postural movements. Benefits of ELDOA include better posture, improved joint mechanics, relief from pain, and reduced pressure on the spinal discs.

ELDOA at Abena Pilates

We designed a 45 min session exclusively dedicated to the spine and to reduce back pains. The sessions are totally personalized and consist of warm up exercises and targeted postures. The postures require concentration, breathing and stretching. Prior to your first ELDOA session, Abena will reach out to discuss your body health and the areas of your back to focus on.
