Body and Mind connection: an inseparable bond
“Through the synergy of touch, dialogue, vibrations and energy, lies the transformative power to change your inner world so that you can experience well-being in both body and mind”
What is a BodyMind consultation?
It is an approach that I have developed and perfected in recents years.
It is based on years of high quality training and years of experience across the fields of:
- Therapeutic Massages and Manual Therapy based on my 25 years as a structural and cranial osteopath as well as masseuse
- Sound therapy including Gong therapy and Himalayan bowl massages
Drawing from this wealth of expertise, I offer a tailored and holistic approach that combines these modalities.
However, this approach allows for flexibility, as not all modalities are used in every session, yet they can be seamlessly combined according to your needs and preferences.
Additionally, each modality stands alone, offering you the option to focus solely on a single aspect of this comprehensive approach should you prefer.

How does a BodyMind consultation help you with your presenting issues?
“By stimulating your healing mechanism and finding your own balance”
How hypnotherapy contributes to improve physical health:
– In term of pain management, it can help alter the perception of pain, making it very useful for chronic pain conditions and post-surgical recovery.
– By reducing stress, it assists healing as stress can slow down the body’s natural recovery processes
– By enhancing healing response, it promotes faster recovery from injuries by fostering a positive mental attitude and enhancing the body-mind connection
– It can help modify behaviours that contribute to physical issues by reinforcing positive habits and lifestyle changes.
– It can improve sleep patterns, providing the body with the rest it needs to heal.
– It helps release emotions that have been stored in the body, which can create or exacerbate pain. Indeed emotional stress and trauma can manifest physically in the body, leading to muscle tension, energy blocked, chronic pain and disruptions in the body’s natural healing processes. Hypnotherapy offers a pathway to access, acknowledge and let go of these emotions.
How Sound Therapy can help ameliorate physical health:
– It is a form of vibrational healing: The human body is a complex system where cells come together to form tissues, organs and ultimately organ systems. At every levels of this organisation. from cells to organs to organ systems which contribute to the body’s overall function and well-being, there is a specific vibrational frequency that promotes optimal health and functionality. Stress, illness, injuries, mental health issues, emotional distress can disrupt these natural frequencies. Sound therapy, based on the power of sounds and frequencies, address these imbalances, promoting healing and well-being.
– It reduces stress and encourages relaxation: Himalayan bowls and gongs induce a deep state of relaxation. By reducing stress and inducing a meditative state, the body shift from a “stressed” and overstimulated state to a restful state where digestion and healing takes place.
– It enhances circulation and muscle relaxation: as the blood flow is better, and nutrients are delivered to tissues, there is more healing processes taking place in the physical body.
– It allows emotional release and mental clarity: while not directly physical, emotional stress and mental clutter contribute to physical ailments, including tension headaches, digestive issues and chronic pain. By providing a pathway for emotional release and promoting mental clarity, sound therapy sessions can help alleviate these physical symptoms.
– It boosts the immune system: by reducing stress and encouraging deep healing relaxation, the function of the immune system is improved, which can make the body more resilient against imbalances and dysfunctions.
– It helps improving sleep quality by inducing long lasting relaxation, which help combat insomnia and improve sleep quality, which is vital for physical healing, regeneration and overall well-being.
