Hi everyone and welcome to Kelpo Keho!
My name is Johan Jaumain, I am an Etiopath and Sports Massage Therapist from France. When I moved to Helsinki in the summer of 2012, I decided to start my own clinic of Etiopathy and Massage Therapy and the Loop Martial Arts Center felt like the right place to kick off a new adventure. I currently train Brazilian JiuJitsu there and I recommend you check it out here.
I studied both Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapy in London, England specialising in Strength and Conditioning and recovery post injury. During these years, I crossed the path of semi professional football players, rugby players, martial artists, long distance runners, bodybuilders and kettlebell lifters perfecting my trade as a physical therapist. Always trying to better myself, my continuing studies and courses lead me (back) to my roots: Etiopathy.
What Etiopahy is:
“From the Greek aïtia ” cause “and pathos ” suffering “, etiopathy is a method to go back to the cause of a pathology and treat it if it lies in its field of action. I call it treating the “why”. My approach as an Etiopath is person centered, treating the emotional, physical and physiological aspects of my patients.
I am a Level Three practitioner (the first and only in Finland to date) of NeuroKinetic Therapy® .
Here is a quick word about NeuroKinetic Therapy from Thomas Wells, certified master NKT® practitioner and instructor:
“Most of the pain we experience in our bodies is the result of compensation patterns. Too much of this. Too little of that. NKT uses specialized sequences of muscle tests and soft-tissue releases to rapidly assess and resolve these patterns at the source; the motor control center of the brain. The result is reduced pain, improved range of motion and better overall performance. Combined with specially-assigned home exercises, NKT can often offer results where other modalities have failed.”
Sounds a bit technical? No worries, here is what to expect:
Etiopathy sessions generally consist of three basic components: Assessment/evaluation, corrections, and assignment of exercises or other types of home correctives. The precise details depend on the issue a client presents with and which specific method or methods I decide are best to use. Most sessions involve some combination of manual therapies and some sort of neuromuscular technique, such as NKT. At the end of sessions, several things happen. I re-evaluate, do any necessary clean-up work, we discuss the treatment plan, and we review any assigned homework, such as exercises and stretches. Home exercise programs are usually hand-written or emailed as video demonstrations.
