Embryo Osteopathy with Patrick Jouhaud MD, DO

Note: 2 modules of 2,5 days. The last day of every module will end 12:30

Module 1:


Understand how forms are constructed between the moment of fertilisation and the moment of implantation. Study metabolic fields using embryological knowledge (research of Dr E. Bleschmidt, B. Freeman, V. Fleury) Perfect the osteopath’s diagnosis and therapeutic touch, as well as his or her ability to stabilize a “neutral state”. Explore the mechanisms of intuition


Ø Framework for the training course

CHAPTER X: The neural tube – Applications to neurology

Ø Neural crests
Ø The brain and corpus callosum
Ø The meninges
Ø Nociception – clinical applications = scars

Ø Aerodigestive junction

Ø Inter-orbicular ligament

Ø Nasal-septal ligament

Ø The jawbones

Ø The zygomas
Ø Meckel’s cartilage


Ø Therapeutic protoplasmic respiration

Module 2:


Define protoplasmic rhythm at the crossroads of all the rhythms of the living body, and intention as the consequence of attention.
Explore empathic concern as a tool for osteopathic touch in its function as a link between carer and cared-for. The thermodynamics of life, fractal wounds, body schema and the proprioception approach are studied in order to understand the notions of chaos physics, either in connection with a pathological state (injury, illness), or in connection with the physiology of protoplasmic movement (health). Entropy balance.Managing the observer’s role as a healthcare practitioner.

I am Patrick JOUHAUD, MD – DO

As an osteopathic physician, I have a university and scientific background. Grateful and loyal, I have deep respect for those who trained me, both in Medicine and Osteopathy.
Life’s lessons and the studies that accompany them mean that we must always question what we have learned, experiment with it and confront it with the realities of our world.

When Osteopathy became part of my career path, it opened up my mind to dimensions and reasoning other than those of “determinism” and “equations”. In addition to the physical, chemical and biological sciences, the humanities add a psychological and spiritual dimension to Medicine. Learning to “feel”, and the subtleties of the information transmitted by manual listening, led me to discover that life cannot be explained by causality or finality.

My experiences as a doctor have brought me into contact with both death and birth, illness and healing, hope and despair. As such, I have learned to consider the whole being, prior to symptoms and dysfunctions, or skills.
Today, I can practise and teach Osteopathy with the rigour I have acquired. While I have the utmost respect for the founding masters of Osteopathy, with whom I have become acquainted through their writings, as well as those with whom I have come into contact through their teachings, I consider my research, teaching and publications to be part of the work carried out by researchers using extremely powerful observation methods that did not exist until very recently. In this respect, embryology has been revolutionised today by observers of the first moments of existence, with anatomy taking on a fine, subtle dimension thanks to optical lenses and sophisticated cameras. The work conducted by physicists in the 21st century extends the knowledge discovered by those of the 20th century; quantum physics has become indisputable, replacing gravitational physics as the basis for understanding reality. Thanks to this, we know that matter only exists because it is preceded by its vibration, and that it is created by consciousness. In addition, a number of scientific publications have shown that water is the essential constituent of living organisms, and that its physical and chemical properties, as well as its ability to exist in different states, make it a sensor and transmitter of information.

These scientists have legitimised my research and my observations as a practitioner.
Finally, I ask all my students and readers to compare what I have to say with their own experience, and to align themselves with the words of the poet Matsuo Bashô (Master of Haiku): “Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.”

The teaching I organize is a perfect illustration.
