The Team

At the start of HYPNOVR were two doctors specializing in anesthesia and intensive care, Denis Graff and Chloé Chauvin. Both are graduate in medical hypnosis and they have over 10 years of experience using medical hypnosis in their practice of anesthesia, pain, stress and anxiety management.

They quickly met Mr Nicolas Schaettel and the three of them founded HYPNOVR.
