Welcome to Doortast Osteopathy practice.

This website provides information about what exactly my Leiden Osteopathy practice is, which problems Osteopathy can treat, who I am and of course how I work and what my treatment methods are.

My name is Barend van Zelm van Eldik and I am an osteopath and acupuncturist by profession. For many years I have been using osteopathy and acupuncture to treat clients with a wide range of physical problems. My training in several disciplines, including physiotherapy and acupuncture as well as osteopathy, allows me to approach your symptoms from various different viewpoints.

Doortast Osteopathy practice is situated at 91 Schuttersveld in the centre of Leiden within Doortast Physiotherapy practice, where I have had the pleasure of running my practice for many years.


Osteopathy practice and problems?

Staying healthy and in balance is not something we can take for granted any more. We experience high levels of pressure every day: at work, at home, and in our social circles. This pressure can lead to an imbalance in our bodies, which can lead to a whole range of unexplained problems. These can include hormonal problems, persistent back and neck pain, migraine, allergies, burnout, stomach and digestive problems or other physical complaints.

This is a pattern that I see increasingly in my practice. Many of these problems can be treated successfully using osteopathy, with lasting results.

Osteopathiepraktijk Leiden helpt bij uw klachten
In balans zijn kan door de behandeling van osteopathiepraktijk Doortast

Al jaren liep ik te kampen met terugkomende rugklachten. Dankzij de behandelingen van Barend ben ik eindelijk van mijn klachten af. Verbluffend om er achter te komen dat de oorzaak van mijn klachten iets heel anders is dan ik zelf dacht.

Osteopathie helpt voor: maag en darmklachten, migraine, rugklachten, hormonale problemen, burn-out klachten, groeigebonden blessures, sportgerelateerde lachten, zwangerschaps klachten etc. 

Onze zoon had al jaren last van migraineklachten. Als baby had Thijs een voorkeurshouding. We hebben nooit geweten dat deze twee zaken met elkaar in verband konden staan. Sinds de behandelingen heeft Thijs geen klachten meer en zit hij veel beter in zijn vel. 

Wist u dat de osteopaat het lichaam als geheel ziet en dus ook zo behandelt?
