Conférences et Table Ronde


La présence du mot "esprit" tout au long de la présentation de nos conférences et ateliers pourrait amener le non-initié à conclure qu’il assiste à une dérive ésotérique de l’ostéopathie.

Il s’agit bien au contraire d’un retour aux sources, d’un recentrage à propos d’un des concepts fondamentaux d’A.T. Still, qui très rapidement a disparu des textes, de la philosophie et de la pratique ostéopathiques. Concept pourtant fondamental puisque axé sur la recherche d’une compréhension du phénomène de la Vie.

Nous soignons des êtres vivant, dont l’organisme est régulé par des mécanismes propres au vivant, et qui présentent des difficultés propres au vivant. Mais qu’est-ce que le "vivant" ?

La question se trouve à nouveau soulevée lorsque A.T. Still définit l’ostéopathie d’une façon bien trop souvent perçue comme une énigme ou à la signification un peu floue : « L’ostéopathie est la loi de l’Esprit, de la Matière et du Mouvement. » Viola Frymann affirme que cette définition « est la définition, la seule définition, que donna A. T. Still pour les principes et la pratique de ce qu’il découvrit et nomma ostéopathie. » Nous y voila : pour élucider A.T. Still, il nous faudra bien comprendre les concepts qui accompagnent cette définition.

La démarche ici sera de nous réapproprier ce que nous ont transmis les Dr Still et Sutherland, et de tenter d’y apporter un éclairage à la lumière des connaissances de notre époque.

Mais la langue française nous apporte une difficulté supplémentaire, puisque nous avons moins de vocabulaire à notre disposition pour exprimer de nécessaires subtilités : Mind or Spirit ? La traduction mot pour mot nous faire perdre la nuance : esprit ou esprit ? Vous pouvez consulter à ce propos l’article de notre confrère et ami Pierre Tricot : Vous avez dit esprit ou esprit ?

Zachary COMEAUX

Le Dr Still incitait ses étudiants, ainsi que les représentants du corps médical, à se plonger dans une réflexion sincère sur leur façon de prendre en charge un patient en souffrance. Son secret a été de considérer plus spécifiquement la nature de la personne, y compris mais sans s’y restreindre, à la lumière des derniers progrès de la science. Depuis 1874, les biosciences, la médecine, et la société ont considérablement évolué. L’ostéopathie, elle aussi, a évolué, développant une grande diversité de domaines d’application, mais toujours en mettant l’accent sur la méthodologie. L’ostéopathie est encore plus indispensable voire essentielle quand elle reconnaît la complémentarité des approches biomécanique, énergétique, fluidique, biodynamique, et bien d’autres encore. Cette conférence, enrichie d’une réflexion sur les aspects contemporains des biosciences, suggérera une façon de concilier ces points de vue divergents.

Vendredi 11 novembre de 8H45 à 12H45

Dr. Still coaxed his students, and the medical establishment, to reflect deeply on their way of engaging the patient in distress. His key was to look more deeply into the nature of the person, including but not limited to a refined scientific view. Bioscience, medicine, and society have progressed drastically since 1874. Osteopathy in turn has developed a diverse scope of expression in with an emphasis on methodology. Osteopathy is most vital when it recognizes the complementarity of biomechanical, energetic, fluidic, biodynamic and other approaches. This lecture will, through refection on aspects of contemporary bioscience, suggest a way of reconciling these divergent views.

Friday, November 11th from 8.45 am to 12.45


Hugh MILNE

Sutherland a utilisé le terme “visionnaire” pour la première fois en 1931, mais son usage a quasiment disparu. Pourquoi ? Je suis fasciné par le fait que lorque nous nous mettons réellement à l’écoute d’un patient, et prenons le temps de l’observer en nous plaçant dans un état méditatif et perceptif, il devient possible de voir ce qui lui pose problème et ce dont il a besoin en tant qu’être spirituel et non pas dans les limités de nos perceptions au niveau cranio-sacré. C’est ce que j’appelle “L’approche visionnaire”.

En 1967, afin d’être admis par l’Association Médicale Américaine, l’Association Ostéopathique Américaine accepta de faire disparaitre de sa littérature et de ses pratiques toute référence aux pratiques visionnaires et ésoteriques. Les techniques de Sutherland “Pussyfoot” et “Father Tom” ont été rebaptisées de noms scientifiques à consonnance plus conventionnelle (technique du roulement alternatif des temporaux).

Alors que nous devenons techniquement de plus en plus performants, que nous avons pris soin de spécialiser notre vocabulaire qui devient de plus en plus opaque pour nos patients et pour le reste de nos confrères du monde médical, je suis convaincu que nous risquons de perdre contact avec l’empreinte visionnaire de notre travail – l’Esprit de l’Ostéopathie.

Pour notre grand-père spirituel, William Sutherland, tout a commencé en 1899. A ce sujet, il écrira plus tard : « On pourrait dire qu’il (Andrew Taylor Still) était comme le rayon X ; il pouvait regarder à travers vous et voir des choses, vous dire des choses, sans même avoir posé les mains sur votre corps. Je l’ai vu faire cela ! Et à de nombreuses reprises ! Lorsque l’un des professeurs faisait un cours de clinique avec sa classe, cherchant à localiser la lésion, le Vieux Docteur, venant du fond de la classe, s’approchait et disait : "La lésion est ici". » Comment faisait-il cela ? William Garner Sutherland – Contributions de la pensée - p.291.

Croyez-le ou non, aussi visionnaires qu’elles puissent le paraître, les « Notions Crâniennes » comportent quelques vérités essentielles. Visionnaire ? Oui ! Et non à la fois ! William Garner Sutherland – Contributions de la pensée - p.51- 53.

Vendredi 11 novembre de 14h00 à 18h00

Sutherland first used the term ‘visionary’ in 1931, but its use has almost disappeared. Why ? I am fascinated by how, when we really listen to a client, and take the time to look at them in a meditative, perceptive way, it becomes possible to see and sense what troubles them, and what they need, as a spiritual being, and not be limited in our perception to the cranial field. That is why I call this ‘visionary work.’

In 1967, in order to become accepted by the American Medical Association, the American Osteopathic Association agreed to remove all references to visionary and esoteric practices from its literature and its training. At this time, Sutherland’s ‘Pussyfoot’ and ‘Father Tom’ techniques had to be given ‘proper sounding’ scientific names. I am concerned that we may be in danger of losing contact with the visionary aspects of the work — the spirit in osteopathy — as we become better and better at our technical interventions, and become more deeply wedded to using a specialized vocabulary that becomes more and more opaque to our clients, and to other health professionals.

For our grandfather spirit, William Sutherland, it began in 1899. Writing about it later, he noted, ‘You might say that he (Andrew Taylor Still) was like the X-ray : He could look right through you and see things, and tell you things, without putting his hands upon the body. I have seen him do that ! Time and time again. When some of the early teachers had a clinic up before class, hunting for the lesion, in would come the old Doctor from the rear. “Here’s your lesion.” How did he do it ?’ William Garner Sutherland, Contributions of Thought p. 291

Believe it or not, visionary though they may seem, ‘Skull Notions’ present a few fundamental truths. Visionary ? Yes ! Also, No ! William Garner Sutherland, Contributions of Thought, pps 51 - 53

14h00-18h00 Table Ronde - What is Osteopathy ?

Nicholas HANDOLL

Nicholas Handoll élargit notre compréhension du concept ostéopathique du Dr Still et de son développement par W.G. Sutherland. Il traitera du "principe fondamental" spécifique au concept crânien de Sutherland, qui est de permettre au système corporel de manifester sa puissance vitale interne, et non l’application d’un traitement déterminé par le praticien.

Nicholas Handoll apréhende le corps humain en tant qu’unité d’énergie centrée dans son champ énergétique, démontrant que la structure n’est pas une simple forme et que la matière est l’expression du mouvement. Basée sur les découvertes de la physique quantique, cette conférence nous amènera à la proposition que la nature fondamentale du corps n’est pas une simple concentration d’énergie, mais que le corps existe au sein d’un univers bien plus grand de cette même énergie, et qu’il y a beaucoup plus d’énergie entre et autour de nous, qu’au sein de notre organisme.

Nicholas Handoll nous apportera une autre compréhension du fonctionnement du corps humain, de la structure de notre environnement, des interrelations entre êtres vivants, des répercussions sur nos perceptions et du principe d’action du traitement ostéopathique.

Ceci ouvre de nouvelles opportunités pour les soins ostéopathiques.

Samedi 12 novembre de 8H45 à 12H45

Nicholas Handoll expands our understanding of Dr Still’s concept of osteopathy and W G Sutherland’s development of it. He discusses Sutherland’s ‘fundamental principle’ of his cranial concept, to allow the body to manifest its own potency from within, rather than the application of treatment prescribed by the physician.

Nicholas Handoll examines the human as an energy unit in its energy field, to show that structure has no form and matter is an expression of motion. The presentation leads to the proposal that the fundamental essence of the body is not just a deep concentration of energy but also that the body exists within a universe of the same but even greater energy and that there is more energy around us and between us than there is within us.

This opens great opportunities for osteopathic care.
