Jean-Pierre Deschênes, n.d., h.d., mt.d., kin., stress and kinesiology coach

What you’re going through, I’ve been through too.

I’ve had several food intolerances, a tendency to hypoglycemia, sometimes digestive problems and even a leaky gut, all set against a backdrop of stress that I couldn’t modulate or tame.

I was able to free myself from stomach-related symptoms by knowing myself better, respecting my limits and developing kindness towards myself.


After appendicitis, complicated by peritonitis, and even stage 3 cancer, it took me thirty-five years of apprenticeship to regain power over my health; a true empowerment that enabled me to enter into radical remission through natural means and major changes in my relationships and lifestyle habits.

My children have also been my teachers, with their sensitivity and even hypersensitivity to both food and psychological issues. They enabled me to heal my childhood wounds and re-establish healthier family ties.

The health needs of my children and myself led me down the path of massage therapy, which I practised for 22 years, naturopathy and homeopathy, which I have practised for 20 and 26 years respectively, and energetic and internalizing approaches such as meditation and Qi-gong, which I have practised for 35 years.

This is what I offer my clients: a return to the power of their own health, both in terms of the stomach and the brain, in relation to stress.
