Our Name

Many people ask us why La Licorne. To answer this question, we must take you into the mythical world. The unicorn is a legendary animal, powerful and fierce, symbolizing purity and grace. It has mythical healing powers. Its horn purifies water and when ground, it serves as an antidote for all sorts of diseases and poisons. In contemporary literature, one finds reference to the exceptional powers of the unicorn, including in the story of Harry Potter where Voldemort feeds on unicorn blood to survive.

Killing a unicorn is a monstrous thing. To commit such a crime, one must have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Unicorn blood allows survival, even when on the brink of death, but at a terrible price. For one must kill a pure and defenseless being to save one's own life. - from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

The unicorn is a noble creature offering protection and healing. Now, the unicorn constitutes the symbol of our Clinic to watch over the well-being of all our patients.
