Fribourg David


Je suis un thérapeute expérimenté, professionnel et diplômé d’OSTEOPATHIE et de MASSAGE BIEN-ETRE. Je pratique:

1 MASSAGE BIEN-ETRE qui a pour base le TUI NA. Cela se décline en 2


  • 1 MASSAGE BIEN ETRE DRAINANT. C’est un geste doux qui favorise la détente totale. Utile pour la préparation d’une opération en diminuant les toxines, stimuler le système immunitaire, aider les jambes lourdes, pour performer dans un sport ou encore pour perdre des centimètres de tour de taille.
    Geste plus ou moins appuyé selon le patient qui a pour but de réduire le stress et relâcher les muscles, les fascias qui les entourent. Il s’agit d’agripper, d’étirer les fibres musculaires et défaire les adhérences qui existent entre les différentes couches de muscles et des fascias.

Le soin d’ostéopathie est relativement doux mais efficace. Cette pratique est utile pour donner une plus grande mobilité tissulaire muscles, articulations viscères… et soutenir un corps qui doit s’adapter chaque jour à nos activités.

Je vous accompagne pour intégrer une pratique d’étirement et de musculation afin d’entretenir son corps chaque jour. Objectif minimiser les douleurs chroniques ou encore prévenir celles qui reviennent souvent au même endroit. Pour les femmes enceintes massages et soin d’ostéopathie seront adaptés

Lou Garnero

Yoga Instructor (ariel & hatha yogo)

A Hatha flow and aerial yoga teacher, Lou is also a sophrologist. Holder of a Bac + 3 in psychology and a Masters in anthropology of the performing arts (theater, dance and music), Lou has a multicultural and holistic humanist approach. Yoga and sophrology form an excellent mixture to combine body and mind, and thus learn to control and soothe them.


HATHA FLOW: dynamic and gentle yoga. The haha ​​flow combines meditation, breathing work and a series of postures.

AERIAL YOGA: yoga with the help of an aerial tissue. Sequence of postures on the ground, standing and in the fabric.

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT (stress, anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, joy, disgust …).
SEXUALITY DISORDERS (vaginismus, endometriosis, premature ejaculation, erection problems, identity research, fantasies, libido …).
THE MENTAL PREPARATION OF THE ATHLETE (concentration, stress, self-confidence, eating disorders, team spirit …).

Lou is convinced that if we can listen to our inner life, we can have access to the path that leads to our happiness. Knowing how to understand your body and mind is essential to control your daily emotions. Yoga and relaxation therapy help to detach from complicated everyday situations and send more positive signals to the brain. Refocusing on the present moment to approach the future with more peace of mind and thus detach from one’s past, are his watchwords.

Jacqui Napier


Throughout my previous career as a Nurse, then British Airways Cabin Crew, I have always pursued my passion for creativity. Whether it is painting, sculpture, jewellery making and sewing. When I retired from flying myself, and a friend opened a Paint-Your-Own-Pottery Cafe in Biot.

I then continued with mobile pottery parties and Workshops. In 2016 I relocated to Portugal for 2 years. There I worked as a volunteer with Projecto Arte which is a charity that offers Art therapy to disadvantaged children in schools and youth clubs. This really spiked my interest in Art therapy and I went on to take courses at Goldsmiths and the British Association of Art Therapists in London as well
as Metafora school of Art in Barcelona.

I have learnt just how powerful creativity is to all of us. My aim now is to bring art to everyone. Especially those who think they can’t draw/paint or are intimidated by regular art classes. I will be offering a series of short courses in small groups. Starting with Mindful Art sessions, which is very varied and free. Later I will be doing courses on beginners drawing techniques, pottery and painting.

She gives amusing demonstrations and simple explanations about the essence of moving constructively. They enable you to acquire knowledge from your own experience and at the same time, you learn the process and valuable tools with which to continue working on yourself. As you adapt your movement habits you will avoid pain, discomfort and injury whilst enjoying the effortless and ease in everything you do.  Julia has taught people of all ages including dancers, sports enthusiasts and musicians.

Since receiving a degree in dance at Surrey University, she has also taught dance and creative movement in schools and Arts centres in England and France incorporating both methods in her pedagogy.

J’ai toujours eu deux passions, la langue française et la danse. Le français pour sa richesse, sa particularité et sa difficulté, la danse pour sa beauté, son harmonie et sa rigueur. Deux façons de s’exprimer : avec les mots, avec les gestes. Cela fait, maintenant, plus de 10 ans, que j’enseigne le français Langue Etrangère à des étrangers de tous âges et de différentes nationalités.

I have always had two passions, the French language and dance. French for its richness, its particularity and its difficulty, the dance for its beauty, its harmony and its rigor. Two ways to express yourself: with words, with gestures. It is now more than 10 years that I teach French as a Foreign Language to foreigners of all ages and different nationalities.

Joachim Klimkeit

Psychotherapy and Somato-therapist

Joachim Klimkeit, praticien en Psychothérapie et Somato-thérapeute d’origine franco-allemande. Je propose un accompagnement thérapeutique en quatre langues : français, anglais, allemand et italien.

J’accompagne des personnes en thérapies brèves de Psychothérapie ayant stress, angoisse, anxiété, phobies, perte deuil, séparation, divorce, co-dépendance, aussi bien sur les maladies psychosomatiques et auto-immunes souvent en lien avec un trauma ou un conflit interne non résolu, qui a tout simplement été refoulé. Lequel s’est ensuite fixé dans le corps, en lien avec un ressentiment opprimé tel que la colère ou la peur.

Une thérapie peut être le levier pour soigner corps et âme.

Somato-thérapie et soins énergétiques, Chakras et méridiens, déblocage énergétique. Soma, en grec ancien, signifie le corps. Le but de la somato-thérapie est de reconnecter l’âme au corps en touchant la partie du corps qui souffre et de débloquer les méridiens et d’ouvrir les chakras du corps. Il ne s’agit pas seulement de bien-être, mais plutôt d’identifier et d’éliminer les problèmes psychologiques qui sont déjà liés au corps, et peuvent entraîner des douleurs physiques. Ainsi, en reconnectant le corps à l’âme, le somato-thérapeute est un guide pour guérir les maux et l’esprit.

Mettre des mots sur les maux est essentiel pour accéder au chemin de la guérison.

Assistance thérapeutique avant, pendant et après la chimiothérapie après l’ouverture d’un protocole en chimiothérapieJe vous accompagne donc tout au long du processus de chimiothérapie, tant sur le plan physique que sur le plan mental, pour en faire l’expérience de la manière la plus douce possible.


Joachim Klimkeit, practitioner in Psychotherapy and Somato-therapist of French-German origin. I offer therapeutical support in four languages: French, English, German and Italian.

Brief Psychotherapy therapies for people experiencing: stress, anxiety, anxiety, phobias, loss, mourning, separation, divorce, co-dependence,
both on psychosomatic and autoimmune diseases often related to trauma or internal conflict unresolved, which was simply turned away. Which then settled in the body, in connection with an oppressed resentment such as anger or fear.

Therapy can be the lever to heal body and soul.

Somato-therapy and energy care, Chakra and meridian, energy release. Soma, in ancient Greek, means the body. The goal of somatotherapy is to reconnect the soul to the body by touching the part of the body that is suffering and to unblock the meridians and open the chakras of the body.

It is not just about well-being, but rather identifying and eliminating psychological problems that are already linked to the body and can lead to physical pain. Thus, by reconnecting the body to the soul, the somato-therapist is a guide to heal ailments and the spirit.

Putting words on ailments is essential to access the path to recovery.


Therapeutical assistance after opening a chemotherapy protocol, I accompany you throughout the chemotherapy process, prepare you to afford physically and mentally the chemotherapy to experience it in the way as smooth as possible.
