Who we are

Julie Breukel Michel is mother of six children. A working experience in the palliative field made her give up her artistic career in order to follow different training programs of natural medicine. Over a decade and while exercising her therapeutic activities, she has developed floral and alchemical elixirs and has taught Lu Jong.

Hervé Michel Breukel has been trained in the hotel management and has worked for ten years in the luxury hotel-trade. Travelling around the world brought about a transformation of his personal convictions and the discovery of hand-healing. At this point he left his career to develop his abilities with Tibetan naturopathy, Tibetan healing techniques by hand and by Tibetan therapeutic massage.
