Etincelle Santé

In order to provide you with as much as possible of what you need, my tools are as varied as the field of naturopathy is vast.

Diagnostic tools

As a naturopath, my main diagnostic tool is the naturopathic field assessment. I complement it with my knowledge of Iridology, Chinese diagnostics and certain academic medical tools.

The naturopathic assessment determines your constitution, i.e. your innate predispositions, and your temperament, i.e. your state at a given moment. Iridology can be included in this assessment. This tool allows me to confirm the other signs I’m looking for in relation to your temperament and constitution.

Chinese medicine is very rich and offers a very different approach to our Western visions. Some aspects have parallels in academic medicine or naturopathy, while for others the links have yet to be understood. I find Chinese diagnostic methods very interesting and sometimes use them to complement my approach.

Finally, academic medicine provides us with many reliable tools for identifying certain signs of current pathology. As I’m not a doctor, my training is rudimentary. So I use them to refine my observations, and don’t hesitate to refer a patient to a doctor if in doubt.

Naturopathy and healthy living

The basis of the naturopathic approach is the prevention of disease and the maintenance of health through a lifestyle adapted to your predispositions and lifestyle. In its broadest sense, naturopathy aims to prevent, treat and support the treatment of illnesses in the most natural way possible.

In fact, naturopathy is a group of therapies and can include all the methods described on this site as well as many others. There are as many approaches as there are schools and practitioners, and here you’ll find mine. So I’ve grouped together under this term (rather vague, I grant you) :

  • Lifestyle, including traditional European practices, nutrition, physical activity recommendations and home hygiene.
  • Psychology, which enables us to provide high-quality, active listening, as well as tools for understanding ourselves and others, and for achieving emotional balance.
  • Manual therapies are numerous, I practice classical and therapeutic massage as well as reflexology.
  • Advice on and prescription of phytotherapy, aromatherapy and dietary supplements (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, etc.).
  • Energy treatments

Nutrition is a healthy asset, whatever your situation. It allows you to work in depth on your terrain, prevent certain pathologies, accompany medical treatment, and even be a treatment in its own right!

Toxemia and derivative methods

Understanding how our bodies process toxins and toxins helps us to understand many modern health imbalances. This clogging can be treated by supporting the organs of elimination or by detoxification.

At’s important to remember that a detox is not something to be taken lightly, so make sure you’ve been properly advised before embarking on one! On a devitalized organism, an inappropriate detox can be more violent and exhausting than anything else.

Physical activity

Through our discussions, I can help you find the right combination of physical activities for you today. While regular physical activity is important, it’s also vital that it’s adapted to your body, your lifestyle and, above all, your desires!

Physical activity means pampering your muscles, so I can recommend some stretching exercises.

The key is to find the balance between using your muscles and pampering them tenderly <3


On the whole, I find that our society informs us far too little on this subject. I therefore did extensive research for my graduation thesis at l’Alchémille, and am currently considering publishing it in book form.

If you wish, I can share the information you need to make your own free and informed choices.

Precriptive therapies


Food supplements are particularly varied and an exceptional health resource. When the diet does not provide all the micronutrients needed for optimal functioning, certain supplements can support the body until the dietary balance is restored, or during a particularly intense phase.
Under current legislation, many herbal preparations are classified as food supplements rather than phytomedicines.

Phytotherapy and herbalism

Phytotherapy is the prescription and use of medicinal plants for therapeutic purposes; herbalism focuses on the cultivation and harvesting, preparation and use of medicinal plants. I find that combining the two is a plus in herbal consulting.


Essential oils are one of my favorite areas of practice, and I use them in all sorts of ways! The purely olfactory aspect is already very pleasant, and enables us to do a great deal of psycho-emotional work, as the scents reach the “memory” and “emotion” areas of the brain.
Biochemically speaking, they are concentrates of active plant ingredients: the nuclear power of phytotherapy. That’s why they’re so effective, and why it’s vital to be familiar with them, or to get competent advice, to avoid any side effects (which can be really dangerous if you get them wrong!).
Aromatherapy is best known for its anti-infectious properties. It would be a pity to limit ourselves to this, as the majority of conceivable therapeutic indications can be targeted with essential oils!

Manual therapies


Through physical contact, massage enables you to reconnect with yourself and with others. More specific techniques can relax contracted muscles, mobilize joints and even relieve digestive system disorders!


Reflex zone massage can relieve imbalances at many levels of the body. Empiricism has demonstrated the effectiveness of this method, while science has only just begun to explain it. One thing’s for sure: it always feels good to have your feet or hands massaged!


Being wrapped in clays, seaweed or marine mud provides a wonderful feeling of relaxation and well-being, as well as allowing you to enjoy the benefits of the material used.

Energy therapies

Energy care

Energy treatments, whether manual, with minerals, sounds or plants, are based on an empirical approach. You can feel an effect, but you can’t explain it. I can include them in my other treatments if this approach appeals to you. I find it effective when practiced with heart and receptivity.
If this approach doesn’t speak to you, don’t worry, I like the purely scientific approach too 😉

Bach Flower Remedies

Dr. Bach’s flower essences are a set of 38 flowers available to balance the emotional imbalances which, according to him, are at the root of all physical problems.
Since him, many people have developed elixirs, mainly with flowers from different regions, that bring certain subtleties to human complexity.
I like to use the knowledge established by Dr. Bach as a guideline to accompany a psycho-emotional journey and can suggest a blend if you wish.

Additional tools


My studies in biology have taught me research methods and scientific rigor. I keep as up to date as possible (being really up to date is impossible given the quantity of articles published every day) with the latest scientific research, so that I can better choose and understand the treatments I offer.

I like to understand and find the answer when I don’t have it. So every week I spend a certain number of hours researching and taking notes on what I find. This information can be found in my personal documents, my courses, my blog posts, my first book and gradually in other publications.

Psychology, NVC

Even if I place them here in the complements to my therapeutic approach, I consider that certain tools of psychology, notably active listening and communication tools, are vital to any therapeutic follow-up. They are therefore present at every one of my consultations, whatever the request.

Home hygiene and geobiology

Certain physical (scientific*) and energetic (empirical*) pollutions can eat away at your life and make your living environment exhausting. I can help you find the pollution in question and point you in the right direction.

* Basically, science has proven something in a reproducible way, whereas empiricism is what is observed in practice, but scientific research has not yet been carried out for lack of interest, means or knowledge. You’ll find more details here.


Water therapy is in fact a combination of many different approaches. The Kneipp method, for example, is best known for barefoot walking in the morning dew or a cool river, and also includes phytotherapy and other naturopathic approaches.
Hydrotherapy, as often practised in spas and thermal baths, includes a wide range of approaches: baths, showers, saunas, steam rooms, etc.
