I rarely write reviews but in this case it would be a crime not to. I’ve been to top osteopaths in the UK and David... surpasses them all. I Highly highly recommend him, he’s a true magician. I came to Japan on my honeymoon and on my first day my back went into spasm and I was completely bed ridden. In one session not only did David fix my back he also sorted out my digestion and several other issues I didn’t even know I had. If you’re reading this, thank you!!read more

After a big skateboarding fall, I got so much pain in my back for a week, which affected my sleep. I saw a medical doctor, he could not help me more than prescribing painkillers. I went to David, and he fixed it in 2 treatments.

Really helpful, thanks.



Highly recommended!!!! so much improvements (posture) in such a short time; amazing !!!!! the energetic approach for me worked really wonderfully:)) Thank You David !


I started to be David's patient 3 years ago when it became urgent for me to change my way of life: high cholesterol rate, low physical activity, ... David proposed to me an holistic approach : dietetics, osteopathic treatment...In 9 months, my cholesterol rate was normal, I had lost 20 kgs and was feeling so good being able to exercise!



I had chronic lower back pain, sometimes improving but always there for at least 15 years until first visiting David Brisson 5 years ago, now days while a slight memory of the pain is there, it serves as no more than a warning of those things which I should not attempt.
David was very careful to understand the probably causes of the problem, how long it had been there, what I had done to correct it, and surprisingly to understand both my medical history and lifestyle.


While in Tokyo, I had a back pain, after suffering for weeks, I went to David's clinic. He treated me very well and after just few sessions, those pains disappear.
I recommend his treatment when you have back pain or other kind of pain.
He is a very warm-hearted person, friendly and professional.

I fell snowboarding and was in some pain and had a persistent headache. David was fantastic - after only a couple of sessions, I'm feeling much better and am back on my board.

A session is

A thorough interview about injury, medical history, stress, occupation, daily life habits. Then, we test the whole body: joints, muscles, organs, skull, posture... Ask us about your condition

Then, we apply an individual treatment depending on our diagnosis and the personality of patient. Our techniques can be direct manipulation like "cracking", stretch, or very gentle like massage, facia, craniosacral or biodynamic. From a full body chiropractic adjustment to a very soft and gentle treatment, You + me define the treatment. Share your worry

Finally, we propose advices or exercises to emphasize the treatment and to avoid symptoms coming back.

The number of session depends on the individual, most of the time, it takes 1 to 3 sessions for clear improvement.

Osteopathic Method


The osteopath seeks the root cause of a loss of mobility. She/He detects restriction of movement through fine palpation and the various tests of mobility and motility. Based on the information from the interview and manual tests, we define a protocol of treatment, what to treat and how to treat.

Visceral Therapy

Visceral disfunction has been found to have a link with back pain and posture issues in more than 70% of patients, and include both direct or indirect delicate techniques, which is to go slowly into the dysfunction until the neutral point where there is no tension, from this point the alive tissue relax on its own, at the opposit direct like stretching.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle treatment using soft touch pressure on the skull and sacrum, working on the skull, plus inner membranes around central nerve system. It is a very relaxing technique with deep impact on the whole head and spine.


I search with my hands for a lack of mobility or flexibility in different parts of the body: joints, muscles, organs and skull, as the level of mobility can affect your health


Observation from a distance looking for disbalance, asymmetry, posture, skin pallor and redness. He/She also carefully observes active movements done by patient to detect any restriction of mobility.


I collect information about the reason for the visit, symptoms, medical history and living environment.
