A French-New-Zealander born in the Jura mountains bordering Switzerland, we are  one of the few Europeans to have received a full University education in both Osteopathy (E.S.O) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (Middlesex University) from two of Europe's leading  institutions in teaching of these disciplines.

Although a generalist at heart, we have develloped an affinity for the clinical treatment of traumatic injuries such as sprain, whiplash, post-surgical pain, concussion,...etc.. where the combined use of Osteopathy, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Exercises can drasticaly improve the orthodox treatment outcome.

With 20 years of clinical experience, we have develloped a personal approach inherited from the Osteopathic tradition and based around the extensive use of fine palpation to diagnose and address our patient's issues, both in term of mechanical dysfunction and Qi circulation. This refined approach, in combination with the use of the extensive range of modalities offered by Chinese Medicine, allows us to provide fast and effective treatment for a large variety of injuries.

Our Philosophy

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu

Experience in teaching

From my graduation time from The ESO in 1999, I was lucky enough to benefit from the trust of various Academic institutions and to embark into the world of teaching from the early age of 26. I worked first as a clinic tutor for The Unitec in Auckland, the sole provider of osteopathic educationin New Zealand at the time. After returning to France in 2006, I started working with the CFPCO, the biggest provider of post graduate education to physical therapist in Europe. There, I taught visceral manipulation, post-surgical abdominal osteopathy and worked as a translator for numerous British teachers.

After moving to the UK again and completing a full bachelor in Chinese medicine with a first class honours, I was offered to lead the TCM section of the CFPCO for 3 years, organizing courses and translating the teaching of mostly American practitioners, coming to Paris. My linguistic abilities and my double qualification quickly turned me into a sought-after translator, and I was often recruited by major course organisers to intervene on lectures given by practitioners of international Caliber like Robert Shu, Robert Doanne or Franck Butler.

In 2018 I organized and translated a 5-day Masterclass in cupping technique from Bruce Bentley, the foremost expert of the discipline in the West. This course completely changed my view of the practice of cupping. Now recognizing its subtlety and finally able to extract a better outcome from its use, I quickly made cupping a major part of my clinical practice.
Since then, aware of the generally low standards of cupping practice among both practitioners of Chinese medicine and physical therapist, I decided to improve the situation by offering in depth training in a short time format, a recipe that proved rather successful since in the last 6 years I have had the chance to train several hundreds of physical therapist into the delicate art of cupping.
