A flexible offer

Being accessible in a single place, the care techniques, counselling and support services proposed by the Centre OTIUM were validated by a medical committee comprised of renowned experts. Every beneficiary is free to choose the therapies s/he wants and establishes one’s schedule based on one's disease. The Centre also proposes an outpatient oncology rehabilitation programme that has been validated by the Ligue contre le cancer (Anti-cancer Association).

“Having gone through cancer myself, I strongly believe that if we experience better our medical treatment, we can heal faster”. Linda Kamal, Director of the Centre OTIUM.

Functioning

Group classes are provided. Individual classes are reimbursed on a case-by-case basis in line with the insurance scheme of each patient. We also keep a reserve account to support those patients who not only have been afflicted by cancer but also face financial difficulties.
