The osteopathic approach to gynecological complaints focuses on problems related to the structures in the female small pelvis: the female reproductive organs and intestines.
The treatment is highly individualized & patient-oriented: a clear explanation and informed consent always precede the osteopathic examination and treatment.

During an initial consultation we will go deeper into your problems together. You get more information about the treatment and how Colette Peeters can help you further. Together we draw up a feasible treatment schedule. Colette Peeters is a specialist osteopath in internal osteopathic treatments, viz. internal vaginal and anal techniques.
Colette's specialization is treating the functional consequences of scar tissue- adhesions- briden.
Scar creation varies by individual, surgical technique, complications, and skin type.
The production of scar tissue and its breakdown is a complex physiological mechanism where a lot can go wrong resulting in permanent scar tissue, adhesions, and briden. This can cause peritoneum, small pelvic structures, abdominal structures (ligaments, fascia) and organs to stick together that should not be connected. This can manifest itself in functional complaints due to loss of movement and reduced blood flow/oxygenation/metabolism of organs and structures in the small pelvis and abdomen.
