Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner: Julien Adam
Julien Adam is a French Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner whose humble beginnings started as a physiotherapist looking for ways to help people around him. He then realized the limitations of what he can do so he devoted his time in studying more. Julien’s interest in health brought him close to Chinese medicine and reluctantly found himself lost in the healing power of the art. He then continued his pursuit of expanding his knowledge of modern techniques and classical teachings by receiving training in osteopathy.
After working for 16 long years in France, he wanted to travel around and see how he can be of more impact. Now being a resident in Asia, Julien fell in love with Siem Reap. He has lived in Cambodia for the past six months and has been actively doing treatments from acupuncture, acupressure, osteopathy, TCM and many more.
Moving to Siem Reap has opened new doors for discovering different techniques with his treatments, being a medical specialist he incorporates all of these elements to his therapies to make it more effective. He’s also a long time practitioner of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and for him, maintaining harmony with your whole-being is one of the best thing you could achieve in your lifetime.
Shiatsu Therapist: Pascal Wagenvoort
Pascal Wagenvoort our Medical Therapist was born in Utrecht, Netherlands. With a love of giving therapies, he followed his passion to complete a course in sports theraphy. Expanding his repertoire, he studied various forms of Shiatsu massage, including the Namikoshi, at the European Shiatsu Academy, of which he is still a member.
Originally Shiatsu was used to keep the body healthy but later proved that it’s a powerful tool in aiding bodily sickness, injury and recovery with the usage of fingers and hands. With many types of Shiatsu, Pascal favors the Namikoshi approach, as it uses direct finger pressure to the meridian points, thus allowing the body to react directly through reflexes and eliminate, through the bladder, the toxins that the body accumulates.[/two_third_last]
