What is Homeopathy
Why choose Classical Homeopathy?
Because it's reliable and highly efficient, and all remedies we use have been scientifically proven and passed the test of long term clinical use.
We practise classical homeopathy upgraded with the latest medical breakthroughs led by Prof Vithoulkas, Alternative Nobel Prize winner.
Safe for everyone
Homeopathic remedies are safe for pregnant women, babies, children and elderlies, but required to be prescribe appropriately. Self or generic prescription are to be avoided as finding the correct remedy for a specific person required professional skills and knowledge.
The homeopathic consultation
The initial consultation takes between 60-90 min, as we take time to fully investigate your conditions, symptoms and modalities, your medical history, and predispositions, to find the remedy that will kickstart your journey to recovery.

Traditional Acupuncture is one of the longest established forms of healthcare in the world. It considers the body as an energetic system of interconnected meridians controlling all physiological functions, such as digestive, respiratory, renal, hepatic, urinary or cardiac, etc.
Acupuncture for most conditions
Thanks to the in-depth knowledge of Chinese medicine and our mastery of this discipline, the type of acupuncture we practise enables us to treat the majority of disorders, both physical and psycho-emotional. From allergy, hay fever to chronic fatigue, depression, insomnia, digestive problems, infertility, addictions, rheumatism and many more, specific acupuncture treatments are available to treat most conditions if taken in time.
Acupuncture: tools & techniques
Most European people think of acupuncture as using needles only. In fact, traditional acupuncture offers different techniques are used according to the treatment's requirements: moxibustion (to stimulate energetic points through heat), cupping (glass cups with a vacuum seal to stimulate blood flow and to clear stagnant energy), Plum Blossom needle (for paediatric treatment), etc...
Acupuncture needles being really thin, it can cause a light discomfort when inserted but no pain.
Acupuncture can be used on its own or alongside conventional medicine. It's an invaluable complement to modern healthcare.
To restore mobility and balance
Manipulative therapies work on joints, organs, muscles, ligaments, fascias and connective tissues. Most importantly, they aim to restore mobility and a global balance, to enhance the body's ability to heal itself and avoid injury.
Caring for our mobility is also caring for our mental health and well-being. Reduced mobility directly affects our mood and mental health. It is particularly visible on elderly people for who mental health and primary body functions decline very quickly with any mobility loss.
Cranio-sacral and other technics
Fully trained in Osteopathy in France, Julien uses a whole range of technics to bring back joint mobility, relieve muscle tension, enhance blood circulation, digestion, transit, refreshing sleep...
He always carries an exhaustive assessment keeping in mind the compensatory patterns. Compensatory patterns allow the body to continue to move after an injury by minimizing the pain, but cause in time further dysfunctions. For example, an ankle sprain changing our posture and the way we walk to avoid pain, can finally cause shoulder pain or a wry neck.
Mother and baby check
Specialized in paediatrics, gynaecology and post-partum care, Julien offers specific treatments before, during and after pregnancy.
The pregnancy and the delivery put the pelvic bones under tremendous pressure and those can remain in various altered positions that can cause discomfort, pain and further dysfunctions. Same goes for the soft tissues being unusually stretched. Appropriate treatments allow women to quickly recover and fully enjoy this precious time.
In the same way, offering the new-born baby an appropriate assessment and follow-up ensure peaceful nights and a harmonious growth.
Julien has worked in France with the Olympic Committee and now follows Scottish footballers and athletes. He offers high standard assessments, treatments and coaching.
Injuries during sport practice are one of the key factors that limit training and performance. A quick and thorough treatment will put you back on track.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
A key to women's health and wellbeing
Our pelvic floor is a complex system of muscles, ligaments and fascias that support our bladder, rectum, intestine, uterus and vagina like a hammock. They ensure bladder and bowel control and stabilize our spine and pelvis.
Pelvic floor disorders & risk factors
Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, hormonal change and chronic constipation are common causes to pelvic floor disorders. But we should also think of chronic cough, obesity, heavy lifting, impact sports, surgery and hormonal treatments.
They all can heavily impact our women's life with incontinence, prolapses, constipation, lower back pain, pressure and pain in the pelvic region, genitals or rectum, painful menses and sexual intercourse.
Our comprehensive and holistic approach
We offer a full assessment, check and adjust the bony structure of your pelvis, assess the tonicity of your pelvic floor muscles and abdominals, discuss any issues you may face on the physical, emotional or mental levels. An acupuncture or homeopathic treatment is often associated to enhance your pelvic floor muscle training.
Together with you, Stephanie will establish a full and personalised work-out plan so you can locate, strengthen and master your pelvic floor muscles, close your diastasis recti, reinforce your abdominals safely and get better sex too.
