About Colette Peeters

Colette Peeters (DO-MSc. Ost.) is an international authority on the osteopathic treatment of obstetrics, gynecology and infertility. She has over 30 years of experience in treating patients, first as a physiotherapist (1991) and later as an osteopath (1996).

During her career, Colette has focused on an innovative branch of osteopathy: internal vaginal and anal osteopathic treatments. The focus of her practice is on specific structural and "functional" pathologies and problems such as:

  • gynaecology problems
  • infertility
  • endometriosis
  • coccygodynia (tailbone)
  • postnatal recovery
  • adhesions and scar tissue

In addition, Colette teaches at The International Academy of Osteopathy (IAO), she teaches future generations of osteopaths on an international scale. Colette teaches in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Denmark & Switzerland, among others.

Colette always makes time to discuss the history and problems with each patient in detail. She also works closely with other health care providers, physicians, and even surgeons to map out the patient's overall clinical picture.
