Our history

The creation of Centre OTIUM was born through a meeting between philanthropists and a cancer sufferer. All were motivated by the same goal: to offer solutions that help people to live with the disease, in addition to medical treatment outside the hospital environment.

« I am utterly convinced that through a better experience of my medical treatment, I'm accelerating my healing. »

The dream

At the very start of every adventure there is a dream or an idea. A project is developed. A family of philanthropists, already sensitive to the subject of cancer and its impact on those affected and their loved ones, planned to create a place where individuals can seek care, support and counselling.

The concept

Projects are built by studying the work and existing structures elsewhere, by testing ideas with medical and health professionals. Then one day, you meet someone in remission who shares the same goals, the same generous benefactors and who is completely won over by the project.  

The reality

To meet the needs they see, together we came up with Centre OTIUM. We saw the need for a single place where all the things that sooth the mind and body are in under one roof: hair care, relaxation, diet, meditation, books, discussion. A dream that has become a reality, far from the secondary effects linked to medical treatments.
