At the core of the Ylo product range lies the double medical heritage of Y-Nhi, combining convention with tradition. On the one hand, she pursued pharmaceutical studies in her grandfather's footsteps, who was a professor of conventional medicine. On the other hand, her grandmother shared her secret plant-based remedies with her.
During a trip to Asia, Y-Nhi discovered that these remedies stem from another medical discipline known as "traditional" medicine, which is based on the principle of attaining mind-body balance.
She therefore decided to pursue training in Asia and in France at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Integrated Centre for Chinese medicine.
It is the synergy of these two sciences that lie at the heart of every Ylo product.
Y-Nhi and Laurent met in 2015. Expert in "self-care" health products, Laurent personally and professionally explored traditional medicine and is firmly convinced of their effectiveness.
Fueled by their shared desire communicate the benefits of this millenarian medicine system, Y-Nhi and Laurent decided to launch their start-up together!
Happiness is a way of life,
but one must learn the way to achieve it.

Scientific innovation is at the heart of our products. Since 2013, our R&D relies on an academic and university-based collaboration which resulted in a joint patent with the Paris Public Hospital Authority (AP-HP) and Sorbonne University.
We are strongly supported by leading universities specializing in traditional medicine, both in France and abroad, such as the Sun Yat-Sen University in Canton and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Our international scientific committee ISCIAM*, composed of both traditional and conventional medicine and pharmacy research professors, allows us to nurture critical thinking and to keep abreast of the latest research advances.

NATURAL TRADITIONAL MEDICINE
We must not bring traditional medicine into opposition with western medicine. In the context of primary health care, the two can harmoniously complement one another.
Director-General of WHO from 2007 to 2017
Traditional Asian millenarian medicine is based on the concept of energy flow and circulation in the body, which governs and controls all its activities. These flows are continuously circulating in the body, following invisible paths, called meridians.
The meridians are defined and mapped out, connecting the surface of the skin to deep organs and viscera. When the energy flow in these channels is unbalanced or blocked, physiological disorders appear. The aim of traditional medicine is to harmonize the circulation of these energy flows in the meridians, particularly by acting on specific areas that are well identified on the skin, called acupressure areas.
Phyto-acupressure is the synergistic combination of a plant formula and an acupressure pen exerting pressure on acupressure areas.
Traditional medicine is very ancient. It is the sum of all knowledge, skills, and practices based on theories, beliefs, and different cultures' experiences, whether explicable or not, which are used in health preservation as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, amelioration, or treatment of physical or mental illnesses.*
