From fabric to skin : two essential envelopes

Between 1980 and 1990, I worked for Nathalie Garçon, Agnes b., Corrine Sarrut, Joseph…I had a love affair with clothes; the fabric that covers the body and makes it beautiful. The kaleidoscope of relationships with others that it allows for. Afterwards, for twenty years, I was a costume designer for film, TV or theater, at the service of the actors so that they could inhabit their characters. Throughout the years, I found myself massaging the artists more and more frequently…

 

And at last! :))

i went under the fabric, the material that envelopes the body, to take care of the body itself, its living envelope, and its skin, for the last twelve years or so. This is the mission I started 30 years ago, a quest to learn all about what preserves beauty, youth, and harmony, using the most natural methods possible. A mission intimately linked to my study of Japanese health and beauty practices.

I began learning about the body by practicing Japanese martial arts.  After being initiated into the Emishi o do kaï, I practiced a form of body discipline called Ama-Taiso, two teachings that were passed on to me by their creator, the professor Shigeru Uemura.

My approach to massages, which links beauty and well-being, was forged by listening to my hands. I made use of Biokinergy (a course that I took at the beginning of the 90s but that I stopped in order to raise children and pursue my activities in film), then of a comparative study of massages in the world, including the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, the Chi Nei Tsang massage for the vital organs, the Tui Na weight loss massage, the Abhyanga Ayurvedic head massage for pregnant women, the Esalen method from California, or the traditional Thai method. I also obtained an Esthetician diploma and studied face messages, including lymphatic drainage, Kobido, reflexology, and skin tightening.

At last, a diploma from the Kamuna school in Japanese health, beauty, and nutritional practices. I am continuing my studies at the institut LPS, specifically with courses relating to molecular nutrition and quantum medicine.

These days, my speciality is the Japanese Teate massage as well as the facial and Tuina weight-loss massages.

My body and face care services are accompanied by the latest technologies from Jpan, including:       
 
a Hinotori (a sauna dome that uses far infrared and terahertz technology from the brand Iyashi dome) and an Ama-ring that promotes cellular regeneration and well-being, always with a respect for life. I use organic vegetable oils, hydrosols, serums (100% organic, from Provence) with natural scents that travel well.

Finally, my rejuvenation and weight loss services include advice on a well-balanced and logical diet, advice that completes my global approach towards well-being and beauty that I learned at the institut LPS.
