We all have at least one physical scar, and not the least: our navel. This scar is a birthmark. It is the sign of the cut in the umbilical cord. The umbilical cord is generally viewed as the connection between the fetus and the mother, which is not true. The umbilical cord is connected to the placenta, which is of the same genetic heritage as the fetus. It is another part of the fetus.

The navel is all that remains of this cord and the history of its cut. Everyone has a personal relationship with the navel, but it is certain that it is part of a person’s intimacy. According to people, touching the navel and its area is a very sensitive affair, if not impossible.

It has mechanical influences on the visceral system (liver, pancreas, intestine, bladder, reproductive system in women and in men) and locomotor (low back pain, pelvic imbalance, sciatica). Listening more closely will sometimes reveal the wound of the cut between baby and placenta. A wound that cut off a newborn baby from part of himself, of his energy, of his power and of his autonomy.
A sensitive navel, a fragile navel that has difficulty being touched or even looked at, is a navel that needs to be soothed in its tissues and in its history.

Therapeutic work on the navel makes it possible to release tensions and disorders sometimes linked to birth injuries and intrauterine life. It is a gentle, deep, and liberating work.


The burn is a scar.

Depending on its severity, it affects deeper and deeper layers of the skin. GSH will act on different levels of the burn.

  1. Fire – the energy of fire and heat that remains in the tissues needs to be removed.
  2. Tissue quality can be improved: flexibility, redness, sensitivity.
  3. Body awareness in the traumatised area.


Any scar leaves traces in the physical body and the conscious body. The fascia system works by tension and compression. A scar in one place will act elsewhere.

Some examples :

  • An injury or surgery to the left ankle can put a strain on the entire limb all the way up to the pelvis (and beyond), creating symptoms on the pelvis and right limb. The body compensates.
  • Removal of the gallbladder will obviously act locally, but also will have repercussions on the left ankle! Why? For reasons of visceral dynamics, link with the third lumbar and link with the meridians which pass to the knee.
  • Laparoscopy is a technique that leaves little mark on the skin. On the inside, however, it can be misleading, because to get from one point to another under the skin the tools pass through other tissues. The consequences (tensions and deep feeling) are sometimes surprising. It is important to take care of laparoscopies.
  • Caesarian section: the woman complains of back pain or neck pain


I had lumbar surgery for an acute crurus that kept me from walking. The intervertebral discs L2 to L5 have been “cleaned”.

Since the operation 9 years ago, I regularly suffer from right sacroiliac pain. Osteopathic care helps me for a few weeks and then the pain comes back.

I’m surprised at Mr. Kanner’s approach, using the scar as a gateway.

I feel a deep relaxation during the healing of the scar. My breathing goes lower and it participates in spinal mobilization. At the end of the session, the skin and the fasciae regain their softness. The skin regains sensitivity and the sacroiliac pain decreases. In addition, I gain vitality.

This original approach is surprising and very effective.
