Pushing my limits, whether intellectually, physically, alone or in a group, is part of a choice I make every day. The learning that comes from this way of living allows me to know myself more every second and to be able to engage in my passion in a healthy and effective way. Balance is my guideline: “a healthy mind in a healthy body”.

I have been practicing massage therapy since 2005. My touch is very intuitive and personalized. Each massage received then becomes a unique experience. This is my color! Passionate about massage, I volunteered my hands with disabled children for ten years. This allowed me to develop an unusual, instinctive sense of touch and an ease of adapting to the limitations of my own clients.

. I have done several trainings and I have a fairly diverse expertise in massage techniques with or without oil, traditional or energetic such as: amma massage (Japanese technique that is practiced without oil, whose main function is to rebalance the body in energy while being rocked and stretched pleasantly), Swedish massage, massage for pregnant women or lymphatic drainage (very gentle and without oil), sports massage and even yoga-Thai massage (performed on the floor on a mattress). My years of experience have allowed me to mix it all up a bit and also incorporate a base of reiki (energetic).

I believe that much of what is generally accepted as normal symptoms of aging and overuse is preventable, even reversible, and that with proper care we can live lives full of health, vitality, balance and health. I enjoy a variety of sports and physical activities. Having practiced karate for more than 20 years and competed in international combat competitions, I learned the importance of caring for one’s body and mind as a whole.
