Dr. Corinne Troadec is a former head of the Paris Hospitals Clinic in Paediatric Pneumology at the Trousseau Hospital. In 2003 she set up the first multidisciplinary paediatric centre in Paris, the CMSEA, which brings together more than 14 paediatric specialities. She keeps a hospital activity of tuberculosis and fibroscopy.
Very early on, she became interested in the fundamental link between the overall care of the patient (emotional and family aspects, understanding of the disease) and the effectiveness of the treatments.
To this end, she completed her training with a diploma in therapeutic education (IPCEM) and a course in medical hypnosis. On a personal level, she has been practicing yoga for many years and has experimented with different therapies.
Based on this professional and personal experience, and on meetings with therapists, the need to make a link between hyper-specialised medicine and the treatment of somatic disorders by so-called soft therapies became apparent. This link must bring a real effectiveness by a synergy of care, by a scientific approach of these therapies and by a specific accompaniment and an individualized follow-up.

Ella Portiankin is an osteopath. She studied osteopathy at the MTM school in Paris founded by Albert Bénichou. Before that, she obtained a degree in physiotherapy at the University of Liège in 1998. She worked in the urogynaecology and physical medicine department of the University Hospital of Liege. There, she was particularly involved in the rehabilitation of children with respiratory problems and suffering from enuresis.

In her osteopathic practice, she favours a holistic approach that takes into account the patient's totality.
After a career in law firms and companies, Florence Thomée switched to counselling and trained in clinical psychology at the René Descartes University in Paris and in integrative and humanistic psychotherapy at the Sigmund Freud University in Paris.
At the same time, becoming aware of the role of the body, and in particular the breath, in the search for balance and thus embracing a holistic approach to the person, Florence trained in sophrology at the Catherine Alliotta Institute in Paris and in energy psychology with the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) method at the IFPEC. She is currently pursuing her research through the kinesiology course at the Institut Belge de Kinésiologie, always in search of the Body/Spirit/Energy junction which is at the heart of all human life and of which the breath remains the source and the privileged means.
