Spiritual Beauty® Treatments
Japanese Facial Acupuncture and Rolfing® with Naoki
Making use of the highest quality and finest needles in the world, Japanese acupuncture has developed its own distinctive style. The technique is gentle and painless, making it ideal for beauty treatments. The ultra-thin needles are delicately positioned on the energy points of the face and areas of muscular relaxation. They stimulate the fibroblast layer which activates the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers and provide a bright and fresh complexion.
Rolfing® is a kind of deep manual massage work on the Fascia – the layer of connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles and bones. It can also induce a state of deep relaxation by means of the very gentle and slow manipulation of the skull and bones of the face. As excess retained fluids are drained and energy blockages cleared, your body’s natural energy circulation is revived and your face becomes more and more youthful-looking and relaxed.
Massage facial japonais KOBIDO with Valérie
Like the Japanese tea ceremony, a massage session is composed of three codified stages.
First, the treatment starts with a relaxing application of Oshibori, warm towels soaked in Rose, Jasmine and Helichrysum floral water. Then, in a manner quite different from a usual aesthetic massage, Valerie’s hands become the queen as they knead, stimulate and regulate both the surface and deeper layers of the skin in a slow, fluid way, adjusted for all kinds of faces.
At the end of the session, Valerie demonstrates how Ridoki, Gua sha, Jade roller and Facial cupping can be used for ongoing selfcare treatment.
An hour-long Spiritual Beauty massage firms your skin, plumps up your cheekbones, slims down your facial volume and leaves your face more luminous and toned.
Spiritual Beauty® Philosophy
– As within, so without –
There is a Japanese expression that goes, “健美一如 – Ken bi ichi nyo” (Health and Beauty are one.) Another popular concept in Japan is that, “outer beauty is a reflection of inner elegance.” In many ways, these ideas are similar to the Western metaphysical concept of, “as within, so without.”
Traditional Oriental Medicine believes that people are a reflection of the universe – a microcosm within the macrocosm. There is always an energetic connection between us and all that is around us.
Regarding Beauty, Oriental philosophy considers it to be a reflection of your underlying Health and Wellness, and also a reflection of your inner state of mind – your “Spiritual Beauty.” With this in mind, our concept is that “Beauty treatments” should not only deal with your outer appearance but should also help you to develop an inner sense of joy and serenity.
– If beauty is a flower, health is its roots –
Traditional Japanese philosophy says, “If beauty is a flower, health is its roots. Beauty is based on health.” It is also said that “the face is a mirror of your inner state.” This means that your face clearly reflects your inner health – physical, mental and spiritual.
In Traditional Oriental Medicine, our internal “organs” are not regarded as just the physical parts of our body, but also various aspects of our energy system that are associated with them.
This means that when your internal organs are fatigued or out of balance, it is reflected on your face, especially at their corresponding acupuncture points. In this situation, it becomes difficult to balance your skin condition and restore your youthful appearance, no matter how much care is taken.
Thus, the most important thing for maintaining your skin condition and cosmetic beauty is actually to restore your inner balance and health – reflecting outwardly the inner unity of body and mind.
– From Anti-aging to Aging Well –
The word “Anti-aging” carries with it an assumption that we are trying to resist a fundamentally irreversible process. It is a metaphor for resisting only the appearance of aging.
We believe instead in taking care of your appearance in a natural, wholistic way aimed at revitalizing your inner self as well as your outer appearance. We believe that true Beauty comes from “Aging Well” – achieving harmony, balance and health in both your inner and outer aspects.
Our “Spiritual Beauty®” treatment is an wholistic, hybrid approach designed to restore both inner health and outer beauty.
