Rehabilitation of the sense of smell
Post-Covid and post-trauma:
Specific management of smell and taste disorders:
- quantitative disorders (variability in odour intensity)
- and qualitative (parosmia: disturbances of perceptions, phantosmia: appearance of phantom odors …)
The rehabilitation is based on a palette of about 100 olfactory stimuli diluted to different concentrations and meeting the current standards of chemical and toxicological restrictions.
At each session I select different stimuli in coherence with your individual needs in order to build together the process of accompaniment.
Accompaniment is seen as a real privileged moment during which physical limits and individual abilities are respected.
Management of stress, anxiety, sleep problems, upheavals in daily life.
Give yourself a break and tame your feelings to (re)find balance and well-being.
The smells chosen according to your experience and at the crossroads of your emotions and your memory allow us to release blockages or points of tension.
By refocusing on your perceptions and reconnecting with your sensations, we soothe your pains with listening and benevolence.
"And all of a sudden the memory appeared to me. This taste was that of the little piece of madeleine that on Sunday morning in Combray (because that day I did not go out before the time of mass), when I went to say hello in her room, my aunt Léonie offered me after soaking it in her infusion of tea or linden. The sight of the little madeleine had not reminded me of anything before I had tasted it; perhaps because, having often seen since, without eating, on the shelves of pastry chefs, their image had left these days of Combray to link to other more recent … "

Post-trauma and post-stroke rehabilitation, management of neurodegenerative diseases, work on autobiographical memory.
Our olfactory and gustatory memories are built from the in-utero period. In addition, the odorous message being primarily processed by the unconscious areas of our brain (memory, emotions, reward), it allows us to fix our memories even more firmly.
It is on this privileged and precious link that the accompaniment of memory disorders by smells is based.
Exploring your olfactory symbols allows us to solicit your emotional responses and gives us access to your autobiographical memory.
As accompaniment is in no way intended to replace the medical profession, it should be considered as a complementary approach.
