Microkinesitherapy is a relatively recent technique since the first research was carried out in the 1980s, the first evaluations in 1982 and the beginning of teaching is 1983 with the publication of the 1st edition of the Treaty of Practice of Microkinesitherapy which also dates from 1983.

This technique was designed and developed by two French physiotherapists, also osteopaths, Daniel Grosjean and Patrice Benini.

This technique is part of the GETCOP (Study Group for Complementary Therapies).
