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.
