Treatments and holistic therapies

At La Clairière, all our treatments take a holistic approach and serve a single purpose: to keep you in good health. We offer a wide range of treatments based on traditional therapies and relaxation techniques which help maintain focus, balance and harmony of body and mind.

Energy therapies bring balance and harmony to the vital energy within your body. They leave you both physically and psychologically relaxed and refreshed. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic therapies focus on 4 basic themes: a balanced diet, breathing exercises, meditation and physical therapies for the body.

At La Clairière, we believe in the age-old knowledge of traditional medicines. We adapt this knowledge, making it relevant to your present-day needs. Our holistic treatments and therapies take inspiration from both Eastern and Western traditions.

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine is the contemporary version of the medical system developed through Taoist philosophy over 3000 years ago. This ancient tradition is rooted in the recognition of the healing power of nature and the rhythms and cycles of life which govern us all. It is a complete theoretical system based on the fact that a healthy life is one lived in harmony with the principles of nature.  According to TCM, cycles, rhythms, and the principles of nature manifest themselves in the human body in the form of five elements. The therapies and treatments used include techniques such as massage, nutrition and Qi Gong to cultivate the Qi or vital energy, directing it to the healing of oneself and of others.

Consultation
Duration : 30 minutes
Price: 60 Euros per person 
Your TCM consultation begins with an examination of your pulse and tongue. Based on the diagnosis, our TCM therapist will then devise a bespoke series of treatments for you. Nutrition
Our nutrition programme takes a systematic approach to your diet. After an initial assessment, our therapist will formulate a nutrition plan tailored to your needs. Depending on your circumstances, your consultations may either provide general information, or be specifically designed to deal with a particular issue.

Qi Gong
Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese art for improving the circulation of energy around the body by practising slow, fluid movements.

Tuina massage
Duration : 50 minutes
Price: 115 Euros per person 
Tuina massage differs from Western massage in two distinct ways: first and foremost, its principle aim is to improve the circulation of energy (or Qi) in the body and secondly, the therapy can be executed using a variety of techniques, numbering around 300 in total. Tuina practitioners may use their fingers, the palms of their hands, wrists, forearms or even elbows to carry out the treatment.

Moxibustion
Duration : 50 minutes
Price: 115 Euros per person 
Moxibustion is used to strengthen the blood and stimulate the flow of Qi in order to keep the body healthly. The practitioner uses a moxa (like a cigar) packed with Chinese medicinal herbs. The lit moxa is used to warm various acupuncture points on the body for several minutes each, resulting in a gentle sensation of heat penetrating the body.

Ho Guan (or Cupping Therapy)
Duration : 50 minutes
Price: 115 Euros per person 
Chinese cupping therapy is used to balance the body's Qi when it has been disturbed by the wind, the rain and the cold. The cups are applied to specific acupuncture points which correspond to organs in the body, or along its meridians. A vacuum is created in the cups, thus applying pressure to the acupuncture points.

Foot Reflexology
Duration : 50 minutes
Price: 115 Euros per person 
Each part of our feet corresponds to a specific organ or area within the body. Six of the body's twelve meridians, or energy channels, pass through the feet. Reflexology is a form of deep tissue massage which stimulates specific parts of the body via the meridians, releasing tension and improving the flow of energy through the body.

NATUROPATHY

Infrared Sauna
Duration : approx. 20 minutes
Price: 30 Euros per person 
The key feature of the infrared sauna is that the rays penetrate the skin very deeply. Unlike traditional saunas, the heat is maintained at ambient levels (40-60°C), stimulating a greater degree of perspiration which, in turn, results in the secretion of more toxins - as much as four times more. An infrared sauna session leaves your skin feeling healthy and rejuvenated. It heats the body to 38.5°C, imitating the body's natural reaction to an infection, as this temperature kills harmful bacteria and viruses. The end result is a reinforced immune system, healthier muscles and higher levels of oxygen in the tissues.

Bol d'Air® breathing sessions
Duration : 3-5 minutes
Price: 5 Euros per person 
Bol d'Air® breathing sessions use forest pine essential oils to enhance the body's natural process of absorbing oxygen, thus increasing its natural defences and boosting energy levels.

Bioimpedance Analysis
Duration : 10-15 minutes
Price: 25 Euros per person 
Bioimpedance analysis measures the ratio of body fat against muscle mass to give a realistic evaluation of the body's overall state of health and well-being. It is a helpful tool when setting goals for weight loss or gain and when following a regime for a healthier, more balanced body and stronger immune system. Bioimpedance analysis also provides valuable information about our bodies at the cellular level and about metabolism and toxicity levels. This is very useful when planning naturopathic regimes, nutrition plans and exercise programmes tailored to meet your individual needs.

AYURVEDA

In Sanskrit, the literal meaning of Ayurveda is "science of life", but it is best described in English as the art of living. It is a system of holistic natural medicine, found in the Vedic texts of ancient India dating from 3500 BC.

Ayurveda is essentially about living in a balanced way where the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of life are all in harmony with one another. At La Clairière, our well-being treatments include several types of Ayurvedic therapies and we regularly host expert practitioners who will devise bespoke treatment programmes to meet your individual needs.

A complete programme covers diet, detox and various cleansing techniques, Yoga and breathing exercises, meditation, the use of herbal remedies, massage and other holistic practices.

Udvartana
Duration : 50 minutes
Price: 115 Euros per person 
Udvartana is a dynamic massage using a powder made of spices and plant extracts. It cleanses the skin deeply and improves blood circulation, helping to eliminate toxins. In just 7 days, a course of Udvartana treatments yields impressive results on the figure.
