Meet your therapists!

Specialized in Sports Physiology and Perineal Rehabilitation Mathilde graduated from the CHU Grenoble Alpes physiotherapy school.

During her apprenticeship, she developed interests in areas such as athlete monitoring and rehabilitation, perineal rehabilitation as well as pediatrics. Areas that she continued to explore within her practice in various firms in Grenoble, then in Paris.

Between 2015 and 2017, she gained experience in the sports world:

By following the women’s Rugby team in Grenoble (cadets then team 2) as a physiotherapist in the pre, during and post match.

On reputable trails and Iron man, as a student and then as a physiotherapist, during the Ultra Trail du Vercors (2 years), the Embrunman (3 years) or the Ultra Trail des 4 Massifs (UT4M).

In Grenoble offices specializing in post-surgical rehabilitation, rehabilitation of skiers and high mountain athletes.

Strongly committed to the rehabilitation of top-level athletes, Mathilde completed her research thesis on the theme of preventing musculoskeletal risks in young dancers in classical dance. His research led him to develop an information and prevention website for classical dance: “Dance your health!”.

It is in this perspective that she wished to prepare a master’s degree in Engineering for Health and Medicines (ISM) by participating in a scientific project conducted with the Opéra Garnier in Paris, “classical dance and cardio respiratory endurance. “.

At the end of 2017, she left the Alps for the capital with a view to developing the field of perineal rehabilitation. She is trained in the perineal file of B. de Gasquet (assessment approach, education, prevention and rehabilitation of the perineum integrating protection of the spine and maintenance of a harmonious abdominal tone) but also other fields such as respiratory physiotherapy in infants. which she practices in a cabinet in Versailles.

Graduated from the midwifery school of the Foch hospital in Suresnes in June 2007, I worked for more than 10 years in this same hospital in the Paris region. I alternated between consultations, monitoring of high-risk pregnancies, the delivery room and the aftermath of childbirth. At the same time, I took two diplomas, one in 2008 for high-risk pregnancies and initiation into clinical research. The second in 2012 concerned clinical and therapeutic nutrition.

Having become a mother myself 3 times over the years, I understood the importance of personalized and unlimited support throughout this wonderful period of pregnancy and the arrival of a child. Having lived abroad all my childhood and currently living in London, I have many women around me who have become mothers abroad and I have been made
aware of their questions. Becoming a mother far from her landmarks and her family is sometimes a complicated adventure, mixed with doubts and fears.

I am registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
I offer you personalized follow-up throughout these 9 months and in the weeks or months following the birth.

Pauline offers services in:

After having worked in Belgium, Luxembourg and France, it is now in England that he  moves with his suitcases.

These multinational approaches have influenced and nourished his physiotherapy methods.

Inspired by some professors and colleague in the visceral therapy, It was in Lyon that he received his first course in this field. The positive results encourage him to further specialize in this practice.

Benjamin is also very attentive to pain occurring during prolonged work in front of a screen (back, neck, shoulders, …). He carried out a 1 year study on the right postures to adopt at work. Today, he is convinced that all of these pains could be avoided with:

  • A suitable workstation
  • An exercise routine
  • And posture advice

In 2010, Virgil graduated from the physiotherapy institute of Charleroi in Belgium.
The following year, he added a master’s degree in physiotherapy as such.

Tired of the Belgian climate, he decided, thereafter, to practice in Spain and in the south west of France, specializing in 3 areas: Sports physiotherapy, care of women and pediatrics. He works within different structures: With Marcel Cauffriez , specialist in hypopressive gymnastics (very famous in the postnatal field and in the care of women)
