When I left my Brittany, where I was born, it was to cross the Atlantic in a 30 m long sailing boat, discovering the wild sea, the whales, the dolphins, to arrive in the French Caribbean Islands. There I first found work on a sailing boat where I had no need of money, and enjoyed communing with nature sailing and diving, before going back to nursing firstly in French Guyana, then Guadeloupe and finally returning to France. These different adventures and experiences taught me a great deal about myself, people, and life in general. It certainly makes me realize how blessed I am.
I started to care for people as a nurse, qualified in anaesthetics, worked in babies units, ITU and theatres. Being a nurse has been an exciting, demanding, challenging, scary, rewarding, beautiful time in my life! Then, following some back problems, I discovered the power of alternative medicine and qualified in Indian head massage, Baby massage, Reflexology (IFR), Maternity RX, Spinal RX, Craniosacral in Reflexology, Multi Reflexology Dien Chan (Paris), Craniosacral therapy (CTET).
Recent CPD includes: “Fascial unwinding”, “Healing baby trauma”.
As a therapist, I have the privilege of treating babies, infants, children, teenagers and adults of different ages and especially pregnant women. My 25 years’ experience in Complementary Therapies has given me enormous insight into the benefits of these treatments in a great variety of disorders.
Being a therapist is another level of empathy* and compassion, which means I am consciously aware of the manifestation of you inner health. Over the years I have acquired an exceptionally deep understanding of touch-based therapies. We all move through life in a unique way, experiencing joy and excitement, but sometimes shock, trauma or stress. Whatever your story(ies), it’s never too late to overcome a painful situation. So let me try to redirect difficulties from your past. I will help you find the path to well-being and to feeling good again.
* Empathy: Empathy is an ability to be in tune and resonate with others, to have a deep sense of knowing. It’s not that “empaths” can just put themselves in other people’s shoes; They feel their blisters, feel their emotions and are highly sensitive.
Your body is clever: through the touch of my fingertips, I can sense deep-rooted issues and in this way, I work out the best treatment for you. At the end of the session, you should leave feeling more relaxed and comfortable, both physically and emotionally with a sense of knowing.
