Vincent Gouwy uses all aspects of osteopathy, working mainly with adults, and children from 12years old.
In 2018 he attained a degree in psychotherapy. (Vivas hogeschool) and this knowledge has given him an extra insight into the link between the body and soul. Vincent specialises in problems as a result of overuse, stress, (for example burnout) or a physical trauma.
Before starting here in Tervuren, I worked for a number of years in a multi-disciplinary clinic in Leuven, where I worked alongside Dr.s, psychologists, and physiotherapists, where we treated patients with head injuries following serious accidents, which was extremely rewarding.
During my osteopathic treatment I focus on the following concepts:
- Each patient and each situation requires a unique approach.
- The body seeks a balance. Osteopathy can help find this.
- Tensions or stresses that are found within the body, can’t always be broken with force alone. Often a more gentle, deeper approach is more successful.
- Body and soul are not 2 apart entities, they form a whole and should be seem, and treated accordingly.
Alongside my work as an osteopath, I have a love of art.”
