Integral Health Brazil



Microkinesitherapie is a manual technique of Integrative Medicine developed in France in the early 80’s by Physical Therapist and Osteopaths Daniel Grosjean and Patrice Benini.

The name  comes from the etymology of the world in French –Microkinesitherapie – that means therapy by means of soft movements.

The technique optimizes the natural healing resources and mechanisms of our body, enhancing health and wellness.

Microkinesitherapie consists in localize the patient's body information of previous situations/traumas that have been experienced physically and emotionally and the body could not eliminate.  These informations are named  “BODY SCARS” by  Microkinesitherapie and they don't stay necessarily in the brain. According to the creators of the method , Grosjean and Benini “ Everything that happens with us in a toxic level, either physically or emotionally, are stored by the brain which keeps memories and  generate links that may harm the function of the cells generating a vast array of symptoms and dysfunctions”.

The Microkinesitherapie is a technique that helps to identify these memories (BODY SCARS) and deactivate them making the body heals itself through SELF-REGULATION. You will learn to associate Embryology, Phylogeny and  with Ontogeny with specifics manual therapies that will balance physical and emotional dysfunctions.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM Microkinesitherapie

  • Muscular and articular pain and symptoms

  • Sports injuries

  • Chronic pain (persistent pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis…)

  • Migraines and headaches

  • Digestive Disorders

  • Skin Disorders (Dermatitis, Psoriasis)

  • Learning deficits and ADHD

  • Somato-emotional disorders (anxiety, depression, fears, phobias, panic…)

  • Hormonal and sexual disorders


Microkinesitherapie was developed by the necessity of achieving better results.

Grosjean and Benini attended together the Osteopathy course and shared the same concerns and aspirations as related to patient care. They observed that, by using techniques known at that time, patients would get better but same symptoms would appear later without a specific cause.


Aiming to find explanations for the recurrence of patient’s symptoms, they started to develop a different approach and deepened their studies, especially concerning to human development origin in areas such Embryology, Phylogenesis and Ontogenesis.

EMBRYOLOGY – Study of the development of human body.

PHYLOGENESIS – Study of development of the species.

ONTOGENESIS – Study of the development of an organism, its origin and evolution.

From the studies applied clinically linking patient’s history and symptomatology, Grosjean and Benini created specific body maps and subtle gestures (soft touches) denominated micro-palpations that stimulate certain body areas evoking the body natural resources of SELF-REGULATION.

Up to this date, more than 40 clinical studies involving this technique have been done around the world as well as Humanitarian missions: i.e Chernobyl (Ukraine), Russia, East Africa.

Around 5.000 professionals have already received training in Microkinesitherapie, the majority in France and Belgium. In Brazil, the method started to rise in 2003 and many professionals such as medical doctors, physical therapists, massage therapist, acupuncturists and veterinarians have received training ever since.



The object of Microkinesitherapie is to find and restore body areas that lost its vitality and mobility, using soft touches in different tissues in the body using specific body maps.

After applying soft touches on reflexing zones, vital rhythm is restored, normalizing the function of the stimulated tissue, promoting balance and maintenance of health.




The purpose of this course is to introduce clinicians to Microkinesitherapie technique, its clinical applications, physiological effects/benefits and potential contraindications.

Microkinesitherapie technique is 100% hands-on, equipment-free technique. The professional scope is vast and allows the professional ability to apply the method using an integrative and complementary vision allowing to create partnerships with related professionals.

Can any professional be eligible to take Microkinesitherapie  course?

Healthcare providers who have the appropriate degree and/or licensure experienced in orthopaedic or musculoskeletal conditions who can independently and legally evaluate and treat patients including physical therapists, physicians, occupational therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, physician assistants, massage therapists, acupuncturists, holistic practitioners, homeopaths, naturopathic physicians, kinesiologists.

It is not our role as an educational provider to enforce each individual health profession's regulations. All course participants are legally and ethically responsible for reviewing the applicable laws, the Standards of Practice, and the Code of Ethics of their profession to determine whether they may use the information, material and techniques taught in the courses within their professional and provincial jurisdictions. The Salgado Institute cannot advise a participant as to whether he or she may use the information, material and techniques in the geographic areas in which he or she practices.


  • Understand the method conception
  • Relate conceptions of Embryology, Phylogenesis with primitive body and pathologies
  • Establish the practice of Microkinesitherapie in the Musculoskeletal, Visceral and Nervous Systems (theory and hands-on practice).
  • Understand the Tissue Vitality: The capability of the tissue to manifest in a palpable way its state of normal operation.
  • Understand and apply the technique of micro-palpation through soft touches understanding body maps to be able to establish diagnosis and treatment based on tissue viability.

    Two (2) modules of seven (7) days each with a 6 months interval between the modules, 60 hours. Theory/hands-on basis (50% ratio). Each module comprehends theory basis and hands-on practice with peers and with voluntary individuals.

After completion of the two modules, professionals will receive a Certificate of Completion of the BASIC COURSE of Microkinesitherapie and will be able to start practicing the method and participate in worldwide events of Microkinesitherapie.
