"He who has health is rich without knowing it"

You suffer from physical or emotional disorders, chronic or acute conditions, you have "tried everything" and haven’t found relief to your ailments or you have chosen to treat yourself "differently", you are looking for a global and fully personalised method of care, you are a child, a woman or a man, you are young or older, you are looking for answers and need to be listened to:

I am at your disposal!

Who am I?

I’m passionate about Chinese medicine, an art that I’ve practiced in my private practice since 2012. I’ve graduated in acupuncture and tuina (Chinese medical massage) and also trained in the fields of herbal medicine, Chinese dietetics, yoga and Qi Gong.

I also hold a master's degree in social sciences.

Chinese medicine

Chinese medicine describes precisely:

  • The physiology of the human body: organs, tissues, meridians and vital substances (Qi, Blood, body fluids, Jing-Essence and Shen-Spirit)

  • The pathology and causes of diseases: internal, external and mixed pathogenic factors

  • The diagnosis: dialogue, pulse-taking and tongue observation

  • The treatment methods: pharmacopoeia, dietetics, Qi Gong and external methods (acupuncture, tuina, cupping, gua sha, etc.)

Chinese medicine is a very ancient medicine whose sources go back several thousand years. The oldest writings that have reached us are some 2500 years old and still form the theoretical basis of Chinese medicine today. It has developed and expanded over the centuries into a coherent set of theories and practices while also integrating modern and scientific data.

The special interests of Chinese medicine :

  1. It is "holistic" - the body and the mind are one and influence each other

  2. It describes a network of meridians connecting all body parts, allowing for the understanding and treatment of the causes of many disorders

  3. It aims to treat the root causes of illnesses that lie behind the symptoms

  4. It aims to maintain health as much as to treat or slow down pathological processes

  5. It is entirely individualised: the patient's context and life history are unique, as are their illness and treatment
