The design of the human anatomy, like that of any other animal, encourages movement and this therefore makes us healthy. The progressive loss of awareness of our own vital rhythms leads to badly co-ordinated, inharmonious and restricted movement. Understanding how our organism is structured will help us recover and develop a balanced body language.

“l’Organisme” (The Organism): study of the development and the recovery of the human movement.

“l’Organisme” is a space for the recovery, the study and the experimentation of the human movement.

It is the space where Sergi Pla, physiotherapist and osteopath, works with a comprehensive therapy based on anatomy, physiology and anthropology.

Since 2015, “l’Organisme” offers its therapeutic and consulting services to renowned worldwide dance and circus companies and it collaborates with the main artistic creation centers of Catalonia.

Currently, it is considered a center of reference for all the professionals of the movement.

Sergi Pla
Osteopath and physiotherapist (co. 5555). He complemented his undergraduate studies with a masters in osteopathy and post graduate studies in the physiotherapy of sport and techniques of myofascial induction. At the same time he began personal research that led him to develop a type of holistic, integrated therapy. In his enthusiasm to introduce the role of physiotherapist to the world of the circus, he succeeded in finding work with the company Baro d’Evel and this was the start of a series of professional collaborations with circus and dance companies of international prestige. He currently combines his work as an osteopath at a centre for high performance in sport (Cenit) with his personal project, El Organismo: training in and research into the development and recovery of human movement.
