Skin health education
Conferences & Workshops
A program of Conferences and Practical Workshops to help patients to better manage their pathology. In addition to the actual hydrotherapy treatments, the Avène Hydrotherapy Center staff offers a complete programme of conferences and educational workshops for patients and the parents of child patients, to enable them to take care of their health in a global and personalised way.
What are conferences about ?
The conferences we offer are very important moments of exchange to understand the illness, the dynamics of care and the effects of sport and stress on health, and ultimately better manage their own situation.
- « Hydrotherapy at Avène » explains the history of the Hydrotherapy Center, the origin of Thermal Spring Water and the benefits of individual dermatosis treatments.
- « Dermatology » explains everything patients need to know about atopic dermatitis and psoriasis.
- « Diet and nutrition » explains with, and how, your diet plays an important role in your health. You will be given tips to help you change your food habits if they are poor or insuitable for you.
« Sport and Health » discusses the health benefits of sport
Why hold workshops and conferences during therapy
Undergoing hydrotherapy treatment at Avène is often synonymous with learning about relief and the pleasures of a gentler life style. It means finding peace with oneself and with others.
This is why we considered it important to provide Workshops and Conferences for our patients to help them learn how to better manage their condition on a daily basis and teach them about the right preventive measures that will prolong the beneficial effects of their treatment, prevent flareups and quite simply reduce anxiety and stress. But also to rediscover the meaning of sharing.
