#To Slim (or Not to Slim)
Enhancing the body is my mission. A slender silhouette cannot be attained without being in good health, otherwise it’s just not possible. Yet as far as I’m concerned harmony is much more important than being thin. Not everyone can be svelte and there are many beautiful voluptuous bodies, it’s all a question of balance and proportion. Massages will help to reach your new goals, no matter how high it is.
I worked on the protocol of the new Decléor cabin massage, a ritual that has just been launched this month in the spas and salons. It slims, shapes and revitalizes! Energy in the body is like a household electrical system, everything is linked. Once you boost certain zones the rest all follows and the body circuit is resynchronised.
We use breathing to relax, working on body alignment and other specific respiratory techniques. Aroma Blend treats the entire body and as a result each organ can do its job well as part of the reinvigorated whole. I especially insist on knees, hips, ankles, etc. It’s important to keep these parts supple – by the way don’t hesitate to stretch before going to bed! It is a tonic massage, deep and smoothing. I have practiced massage for 35 years, since I was 5 years old! It’s a family tradition in Japan.
