Erwann is the primary resident Osteopath at HHH. Trained and registered in France both as a Physiotherapist and Osteopath, he is also a coach, yoga teacher and the only male Doula (birth assistant) in the African continent!
Osteopathy is a touch and movement based medical approach that is used to optimise function and reduce pain.
He has a special interest in physiological robustness which led him to the field of perinatology and babies, proposing tailor made birth preparation and follow-ups with postpartum and baby care for which he lectures internationally.
From an evidence based approach, relying on deep listening, Erwann is constantly dancing between ancestral and cutting edge models to propose the most suitable and secure understanding for his patients. Movement, breathing and consciousness are at the foundation of his work.
Erwann’s life experiences and 20 years in his professional field are currently further supported by a training in executive coaching and a postgraduate in neurophysiological and multidisciplinary approaches to pain, both acquired at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
Expanding his studies in the field of human genomics, Erwann is currently completing a master degree in sleep medicine and circadian rhythm at Oxford University Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience and works with precision medicine tools applied to chronobiology, movement, breathing, and pain management. Erwann is fortunate to consult and work with a whole array of patients, global athletes and leaders.

THE BOOK OF DISQUIET | Fernando Passoa | Published posthumously
Pessoa writing style is sometimes regarded as aloof, even emotionless, yet it is also capable of making the reader feel as if the words were specifically designed with them in mind. Pessoa appears to be speaking directly to you in his writing, as if he knows you better than you know yourself. “For those few like me who live without knowing how to have life, what’s left but renunciation as our way and contemplation as our destiny?” (Fernando Pessoa)
