What is Acupuncture
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
Wu Wei Ping Acupuncture understands symptoms as manifestations of energetic disbalance. In this way, symptoms that are commonly considered as pathologies, are seen as secondary effects of this energetical disbalance. Stimulating specific energetic points restore the balance.
Acupuncture: tools & techniques
Most people think of acupuncture as using needles only. In fact, 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 pediatric 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 pediatrics and post-partum care, Julien offers specific treatments during pregnancy and post-partum check and care. 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.
Sports Injuries treatment
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.
