I am a mechanical engineer by education (MSc), specialized in ergonomics. I then followed a paramedical training in postural and functional reeducation (Mensendieck method) in Amsterdam, before graduating from an executive MBA at HEC Lausanne.
I lived in Germany, the Netherlands, France, Morocco and now Switzerland. After having been an ergonomist in an international organization for nearly 10 years and a freelance therapist since 2007, I was from 2013 to 2017 the head of consulting at the University Institute for Work and Health in Lausanne (Switzerland). I am now the founder of Erg'OH Conseil Sàrl, a consulting company that advises the most prestigious Swiss companies in ergonomics and prevention of muscle and joint pain.
I am regularly invited for national and international conferences, media interviews or academic lectures, both in Switzerland and abroad. I am the author of Plein le Dos - the Posture Manual (Ed. Favre, 2019).
TRAIN YOUR POSTURE
The mission of TRAIN YOUR POSTURE is to participate in a better prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. Clients' long-term autonomy is my motto. Hence, I do not manipulate your body: if I do not touch you, you do not become dependent on me.
My job is to teach you how to understand and use your body in all your daily activities, so at to limit its overuse. I only work with exercises that you will ideally carry out between mirrors. I target the individual and environmental causes of musculoskeletal disorders, not their symptoms.
The difference also lies in the flexibility of the approach: I accompany you wherever you need me, be it at work, at home or in your hobbies.
TRAIN YOUR POSTURE is the Swiss ambassador of a Northern-European therapeutic approach. Sharing and confronting knowledge and paradigms is my passion. I usually work in French and in English, sometimes in Dutch and German.
