In 1992, Christian Callens (Director of the Massage Therapy and Physiotherapy Training Institute at Strasbourg University Hospital) and Michaël Nisand founded a Diploma in Postural Reconstruction at the University of Strasbourg.

In 2013, the French Chartered Society of Massage Therapy and Physiotherapy recognised this practice as a “specialty” in massage therapy and physiotherapy.
In March 2016, the course was renamed as the University Diploma in Inductive Physiotherapy.
As concepts and techniques have evolved over the last 25 years (reflecting a transition from a method to a concept), the term “inductive physiotherapy” is now a more appropriate term for the new paradigm than “postural reconstruction”.
