Who am I?
Born in France, I studied Physical Therapy at I.F.M.K. of Paris and obtained my diploma in 2009. I worked as a Physical Therapist in Paris during 7 years, in a private practice. While I was working as a Physical Therapist, I studied Osteopathy at E.O. of Paris for 5 years. At the end of my studies, I wrote a thesis over anorexia.
Anorexia is a complex eating disorder, engaging emotion, mind and body. In our society, thin equals strength, food equals health, we tend to control everything: what we look like, what we eat, without having pleasure or being thankful for what we are and what we have.
With anorexia the body is totally denied. Therapy plus a work on body image, touch and physical therapy are part of the treatment.
I have been working with professional dancers and students since 2015.
In New York City I developed my dance practice and understanding. I used to go to open classes of Martha Graham School. According to Martha Graham’s philosophy, movement is generated from three places: the action of contraction and release, the pelvis, and the emotional inner self. The contraction, or strong pulling back and curving of the torso, and the release of this movement by returning to a straight torso are symbolic of the dichotomies in life. It is the contrast between desire and duty, between fear and courage, between weakness and strength.
In addition to my work I use Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese technique of meditation and relaxation. Reiki complete my understanding of the life force energy on the human being. I use this technique for myself and others.
As a mother of two I understand the chalenge of being a mother, a parent, an expatriate and a women. Reiki helps me when I feel the pressure.
I have been in Amsterdam since August 2022. A new adventure.
