Art Therapy

Art therapy is a helping relationship using creation as a mode of expression. Collage, drawing, painting, sculpting and other creative methods are used to allow moments of joy, relaxation and appeasement, but also to express less comfortable emotions like fear, sadness or anger, if the need is present. Individual or group meetings are possible, depending on the availability

Why do art therapy?

  • To identify its strengths, needs and limitations
  • To break the isolation
  • To facilitate the grieving process
  • To support the feeling of power over his body and inner life
  • To explore and express yourself differently
  • To be welcomed and supported during periods of turbulence;

There is no need to have experience to fully benefit from this approach, since the process is more important than the final result.

Welcome to everyone. You can contact us at 819-770-3900 poste 7 to learn more.


Massage therapy service is available in Le Havre for residents of La Maison Mathieu Froment-Savoie who are mobile enough to receive at the massage room, as well as their caregivers. The service is also available for palliative care patients and their caregivers who are at home and receive their care from the CLSC de Gatineau. This service is offered free of charge.

A massage is a well-being must in these difficult moments of illness, whether for a close caregiver, a person who is at the end-of-life or their children! By acting on the body, the massage has positive effects on the mind, attention and awareness of emotions. This moment of relaxation, brings to the client a new energy by giving him a relaxing well-being to help fight against stress, anxiety and depressive state of mind. Of course, the physical effects are also numerous (improving circulation, energy, blood pressure, sleep and immune functions; reducing muscular / articular soreness and tension etc.) to name a few.

My certifications, and 20 years of experience allow me to offer several massage techniques, therefore I can offer the type of massage in harmony with the needs of the body regardless of age or state of health.
