Web site :,




“From cell scale until tissues scale, a tensional continuity is established inside and between B (bones) M (muscles ) F (fascias, ligaments aponeurosis, capsules) structures from the surface to the deepness (internal fascias and organs).

Because they are strongly linked to the fascias, we can perceive inside bones the global tension of the B.M.F.( Bone Myo Fascial) system.

These assembled structures and the posture obey to tensegrity rules witch can be physically perceived.

Consciousness of tissue qualities is fundamental to develop the autonomy in postural prévention."

Michèle Tarento


What is ostéo éveil?

L’ostéo- éveil is a bodily health and movement approach created by Michèle Tarento along the years from writtings and practices of great osteopathic authors.

For some years ostéo eveil postural practices are inspired by Biotensegrity concept created by Steve Levin( www. at macroscopic scale and by Donald Ingber at microscopic scale.


Ostéo eveil develops these main followin aspects :


Awareness of differenr tissues and matters wich constitute our body.


Awareness of articular movements in relationship with structural and cranio- sacral realities


Awareness of postural habits


Birth of easy moving energy


Exploration of body keys



Consequences and applications :


Osteopathy is a global médecine ; as such, it implicitily présents 2 sides, a therapeutic one wich has been generously taught to us by teachers and a preventive one wich is presented here:



In a personnal developemnt context, the priority given to bones make the structure grow inside the body and the mind.


In pregnancy dynamism

It allows subtiles posturales adaptations Inside this continuous fast evolution.


For babies and children

The practionner observes and spots the hypomobilités zones in cranio-sacral mobilities transmission.



This technical is directed at :

-Any person interested by a personnal development leaning on physical body.

-Studients and teachers specialised on sports and artistic technicals

-Nursery and maternity staff who wish a better life to babies and their mamies

-Health practitioners awoken to osteopathic approach and his unicist lighting

"Osteo éveil – conciencia corporal y osteopatia Aplicada

El osteo éveil es una tecnica creada de los 90 por michèle Tarento Doctora en Medicina de la Facultad de paris -Osteopathe -Diplomada en Danza de la universidad La Sorbonne

El objetivo es despertar la consciensa osea mediante ejercicios de tacto, contacto, presion y percusion de los huesos del cuerpo  y utilisar esta information sensorial como guia de la improvisation personal y colectiva.

La estimulation de la estructura osea facilit la aparicion de patrones corporales « sanos » ayudando a recuperar la movilidad organica de las articulaciones del cuerpo y a conectar con creativas formas de expression.

El Osteo éveil es herramienta utilizada en el prevencion de lesiones articulares, la recuperacion de movilidad articular, la improvisacion y la creacion escenica".Rocio Belmar
