Le centre Thermal sera ouvert du 1er Avril au 9 novembre 2024.

A hydrotherapy treatment is a good time to learn how to better manage your condition on a daily basis, improve your quality of life or simply talk to other hydrotherapy patients with the same condition. The Avène Thermal Centre offers you a choice of Therapeutic Patient Education (TPE) programmes for personalised support or unit workshops to be chosen according to your needs and desires.

Our Therapeutic Patient Education programme

Our TPE programme: EczA'Gère

 This programme is intended for adults, adolescents and children with atopic eczema. The goal is to better understand this disease in order to improve your daily life and quality of life. It takes place over approximately 8 to 12 hours during the 3-week course of treatment.
This programme was developed in collaboration with French experts in atopic eczema, atopy schools in Lyon, Montpellier, Toulouse and Nantes.

En savoir plus


Our unit workshops

Throughout your child's course of treatment, you will have the opportunity to attend unit workshops together, to provide information and help you to live better with your child's condition on a daily basis.
Thanks to sessions adapted to the child, they will be able to learn the right hygiene techniques, learn how to apply their cream on their own, and find tips to better manage periods of itching or even stress.
Take advantage of these sessions, which are also an opportunity to talk and share experiences


Hygiene and Hydration

By playing with Coco the ladybird and Leo the leopard, your child will learn:

  •  What should be avoided and what should be preferred when washing
  • Why and how to moisturise your skin

Application of emollient

Two techniques are presented to motivate children to apply their cream every day:

  • A rhyme: "Applying cream while having fun" for fun application: click here to watch the rhyme
  • Massage: "Applying cream while relaxing" for comforting application: click here to view the tutorial

Alternatives to scratching

By playing with Coco the ladybird and Leo the leopard, your child will discover new habits and techniques to stop "traumatising" their skin and limit scratching on a daily basis

Creation of the "anti-scratch" box

This workshop is dedicated to children, allowing them to create and personalise their own "anti-scratch" box. In this way, the child makes the alternatives to scratching their own, transforming the effort of no longer scratching into a game.


During this workshop, you will share with your child a moment of complicity and relaxation. You will discover exercises that are easy to reproduce at home to help your child relax.

Teens Art therapy

While customising a T-shirt with a positive message on it, teenagers create bonds, exchange ideas and share their experiences of their illness.

Medical make-up and concealer 

This medical make-up technique will allow you to conceal your skin blemishes discreetly, whether on the face or on the body, and is open to everyone: girls and boys. 

Food, an ally for the health of your skin

Optimise the health of your child's skin by looking at the dietary factors that influence it: microbiota, anti-inflammatory diet, pro-inflammatory diet.
