Guy VOYER, Ostéopathe DO

Born in Paris, Guy VOYER has nearly 35 years' experience working with athletes, and for 25 weeks of the year he travels to various parts of the globe to give seminars to coaches and healthcare professionals. VOYER began as a physical education teacher; then, in his quest to learn the best ways to work with the human body, he became a physiotherapist and osteopath.

On his way to obtaining a medical degree. He continued his study with medical specialization in fields that include sports medicine, sport traumatology, sport biology, sports nutrition, physical medicine and manual therapy. 

After his osteopathic studies, he concentrated his research on the understanding and treatment of fasciae.

Today he is one of the rare osteopaths who masters and treats fasciae. This is why he wants to pass on his knowledge. 

To reach this goal, he has done extensive research in dissection and methodology (LOADS, MFS, 2TLS, etc.). He has also studied the art of teaching and received a Ph.D. in educational science.


Learning Methodology

One of the hallmarks of a VOYER course is the learning method. Much more time is spent on physical application and practice than on straight didactic teaching. VOYER believes that learning comes through the discussion of concepts that arise between teacher/class, teacher/individual, and individual/individual. 

 "Learn by doing" - VOYER
