Registre vétérinaire OA-6
Natacha is our dream carrier and project leader ! She is at the origin of the OAK concept and has made this reunion of therapist possible, all animated by the same will to bring quality care to your furry family members.
Natacha graduated in animal osteopathy in 2006 and is registered at the RNA (National Register of Aptitude) held by the french Order of veterinarians.
Needless to say that since the end of her studies, Natacha has greatly diversified her osteopathic techniques, and has also studied traditional Chinese medicine, kinesiology, energetic emotional release, naturopathy, energetic aromatherapy, the Niromathé method,...
Before being an osteopath for animals, Natacha used to professionally ride young horse. Her patients are mainly horses but she treats dogs and cats aswell. In addition, Natacha is the manager of Forcora, a Continuous Professional Development provider company for animal osteopaths, where she teaches too.
In her daily practice, Natacha is a fair believer in sensitive osteopathy, in which the techniques used are soft and whitout "crakings", such as craniosacral, myofascial release, tensegrity, tissular and fluidic approaches,...
The emotional approach also plays an important role in her care.
"Communicating with the animal's entire body means releasing both emotional stress and physical locks".
During her consultation tours, Natacha is always accompanied by her loyal co-pilot Frisco, 9 years old australian shepherd, whom you may have met at the OAK center, on breeding fairs or even christmas markets,... We must admit that Frisco is photogenic and that we love having him with us at work or at events!

Anne's professional background can surprise: she used to work as a pharmacist before becoming a horse behaviour specialist and teach ethological equitation, a practice where understanding the horse's behaviour is at the heart of her education.

Attracted by a non-strenuous approach, Anne uses soft tissular techniques to perform her treatments. Like her OAK sisters, she is trained in structural, craniosacral, visceral and fascial osteopathy. Furthermore, kinesiology allows her to adress the entire emotional sphere of the animal, using subtle adjustement skills coming from Chinese medicine, energetic aromatherapy,...
