Inge Schuermans - OsEAN Virtual International Student Days 2021  

Inge Schuermans graduated from KU Leuven in 2006 as a master in rehabilitation sciences and physiotherapy with a specialization in musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Stimulated by the work of colleagues, she started her osteopathy training at the Flanders International College of Osteopathy (FICO) in Antwerp, which was completed in January 2014 by presenting her final paper, namely the effect of osteopathy on snoring. Apart from the clinical work, she teaches at FICO in all aspects of osteopathy; biomechanics, soft tissue techniques, cranial and visceral.
If you want to work with people, you have to study many different things, that is why she also followed Applied Kinesiology (AK), neurostructural integration technique (NST), biodynamic aspects in osteopathy in children and, since 2016, evolutionary osteopathy (EVOST).
Except explaining osteopathic principles, philosophy and techniques,… in an understandable way, her particular interest also lies in the power of the mind; how our perception, beliefs and intention will influence our reality and thus the impact we can have on our patients.
