1.Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.

I got my degree in Physiotherapy in 1989 in Paris. When I discovered Qi Gong I started training to be a teacher because it was quite

complimentary with my job. Later I continued to seek ways to be more effective in treating pain by learning various manual therapies while I was working in a rehabilitation center ,a hospital and in private practice.


2. What are your interests?

I’ve always been interested in Chinese Culture, China’s medicine and its martial arts, which I practice regularly.


3. Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on. 

I have always travelled for pleasure, so since becoming an expatriate, it’s been exciting to learn different languages thus gaining a better understanding of the psychology of people. This really does help to better treat their pathologies.


4. What is your area of expertise?

My expertise is in the treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system regaining function after trauma, treating disorders of posture, neuralgia, and more generally managing pain.


5. What is the most fulfilling part of the job?

Helping people become aware of their body and being more able to recognise its messages, to finally recover their health and well-being.
