Working room for Bach Flower remedies consultations at the gîte Le Benouchon

Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies are 38 flower essences (except one, derived from natural spring water), each corresponding to a basic human emotion. They are named after Dr Edward Bach, an early twentieth-century English doctor who, seeking to help the whole person rather than just treating symptoms, developed this simple, natural method which aims to gently harmonise emotions and, in so doing, bring balance and serenity. 

Bach Flower Remedies address emotions such as fear, discouragement, sadness, stress, tiredness, lack of confidence and anger. 

I am a Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner (BFRP), which means that my training is recognised by the The Bach Centre in England, and that I am committed to respecting its code of practice. I listen and advise – nothing said in my working room ever leaves that space – you can talk about your emotions without fear of being judged, and I will help you choose the Bach Flower Remedies that are right for you.

A consultation lasts about 1 ½ hours.


Au Coeur de vos Emotions

Cabinet de massage et d'Ortho-Bionomy® de Joël Allimann

Wellness massage and Ortho-Bionomy®

In my specially equipped working room, I can offer you a seated massage or an intuitive wellness massage.

I am currently finishing my last year of training in Ortho-Bionomy®, an approach which gently stimulates the body’s natural ability to self-regulate, using non-invasive bodywork to regain body balance. If you are interested in trying it out, I can offer a free trial which also gives me the opportunity to practise.

I have both a massage chair and massage table. You remain dressed for both wellness massage and Ortho-Bionomy® sessions, so please bring something comfortable to wear.
