With Florence or Michael
In the case of a physical injury or after an accident, a surgical operation, an acute or chronic illness that causes pain, reduces your mobility and disrupts your quality of life, physiotherapy is there to help you regain the maximum of your physical abilities so that you can carry out your daily activities, do a job, practice a leisure activity or a sport, and this, according to your condition and your recovery potential.
We are here to promote your autonomy while allowing you to remain active in your personal and social life, to support and guide you in this process and in your path to better health and quality of life.
Following a physical pathology due to an accident or an overload during your sports or leisure activities, we offer you a personalised and adapted follow-up according to your objectives and your capacities towards the resumption of your physical activity.
Specific physiotherapy adapted to the particular, evolutive and functional requirements of the hand.
Whether in the musculoskeletal field (fractures, sprains, surgical procedures, etc.), neuro-vegetative field (CRPS / Sudek, oedema, circulatory disorders, etc.) or in daily activities, the hand requires a particular attention in order to regain its function and autonomy as quickly as possible.
Through slow, successive and repeated pressure, Therapeutic Manual Lymphatic Drainage promotes the circulation of lymph in the treatment of oedema following a trauma (sprain, fracture, surgery), a neuro-vegetative disease (CRPS or Sudek), a breast cancer or during circulatory disorders of the lower limbs.
It is a manual approach whose objective is to restore the harmonious functioning of the structures and various systems of the human body, in order to enable it to regain its capacity for self-regulation.
After having determined the cause(s) of the neuro-musculo-skeletal, visceral and cranial dysfunctions through a complete assessment, the osteopath uses precise manual adjustment techniques to restore the optimal function of the bones, muscles, fascias, nerves and organs.
This restores balance to the body and relieves the patient's symptoms.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has existed and been used for over 2500 years, and acupuncture is one of the means of intervention in TCM, along with moxibustion (application of heat using moxas: sticks or cones of compressed and dried mugwort), cupping, massage (Tuina), pharmacopoeia, dietetics and Qi Gong.
This medicine considers the individual as a whole, body and mind, as an integral part of the surrounding world.
We are made up of, animated and nourished by constant energy flows which, when they circulate freely and harmoniously, keep us in good health and in balance with Nature.
This circulation can be slowed down, blocked or rendered insufficient by several causes: stress, overwork, poor nutrition, emotions, environmental factors, climatic disturbances, etc...
This imbalance, if not corrected, can lead to illness.
The acupuncturist will try to restore fluidity and balance to these energy movements and to restore harmonious relationships between the different organs of the body, either to prevent the onset of disease, or to treat it, or as a complement to other treatments.
After a complete evaluation (questions, palpation, auscultation, observation of the tongue, taking of the pulse) the acupuncturist will work by inserting fine sterile needles through the skin on specific points, in combination or not with other methods (moxa, suction cups, massages).
The method is gentle and painless, even if one may feel sensations such as light pricking, numbness, irradiation... However, these sensations are completely normal during an acupuncture treatment and subside quickly.
Depending on the case, the acupuncturist may also give advice on diet and lifestyle in order to optimise the treatment and avoid recurrences. He can also add a treatment with Chinese phytotherapy.
There are many indications of acupuncture and Chinese medicine and although it can respond to all diseases, this does not mean that it can cure everything. No single medicine can make that claim.
It can be used for therapeutic, preventive or complementary treatments and even in serious cases it can bring support and comfort by reinforcing the vitality of the patient.
The Chinese herbal medicine is the most important and most used branch of TCM in China. It uses various substances from Nature: plants, minerals, animals and fungi.
After discussion with your therapist and, in some cases, with the approval of your doctor, we can offer you an individualised, personal treatment that is tailored to your situation.
Our treatments are based on a pharmacopoeia that follows the principles of the so-called Classical Prescriptions (jing fang) and we therefore never prescribe ready-made mixtures, each prescription is individual and custom-made.
Most of the treatments offered are in the form of a decoction to be made by oneself with the help of precise and complete instructions, as this is the most effective and most powerful method, especially for acute syndromes (such as Covid-19 for example), but it is also possible to have them in other forms (capsules, powder, tablets).
The vast majority of prescriptions are made up of plants, and the harvesting, selection, dosage, formulation and preparation of these substances before use comply with strict, precise rules that have been tested and approved by centuries of use.
We do not prepare these substances ourselves: they come from reputable, controlled and serious Western laboratories that must meet precise and complete specifications, which include, among other things, analysis by chromatography, the search for pesticides, heavy metals, GMOs and other pollutants, as well as the prohibition of species that are protected or prohibited in Europe.
It should be noted, however, that the prescriptions given are not medical prescriptions within the meaning of the law and that, as a result, the plants are not covered by insurance. The average cost is about 2 to 5 francs per day, bearing in mind that the majority of treatments rarely exceed a few weeks, which is still very reasonable.
Moxibustion has always been linked to acupuncture. In fact, the Chinese name for "acupuncture", zhen jiu, means needle and moxibustion.
It consists of slowly heating a plant, mugwort (Artemisia Princeps Montana), on some areas or points of the body, which is dried and refined to obtain a cotton-like consistency.
It is used in the form of small cones the size of a grain of rice to drain and circulate, or larger cones to warm and nourish. The hot bamboo (Ontake) massage containing heated mugwort is very effective and pleasant and can even be used on children.
Moxibustion comes from China, but it has been refined in a very sophisticated and precise way in Japan, to the point where some specialists use only this method to treat all imbalances, and this for several centuries.
Studies have also shown a significant immune stimulating effect following the application of moxa.
This completely natural technique is particularly effective in removing blockages, energy and blood stagnation, pain and fatigue. It allows the body to get back its balance effectively through a double aspect of drainage and supplementation, depending on the techniques used.
