This massage was invented in the early 17th century in Sweden. It has multiples properties and its effects are comparable to those of a workout session.
It is a deep and muscle massage, and its main benefits include relief of stress, muscle relaxation, healing of damaged tissues, improved blood circulation and digestive system function, and rebalanced nervous and endocrine systems.
Some benefits are proven to get you back in shape and to rediscover your physical and mental vitality.
It is ideal for enhancing pre-event or physical effort preparation of the muscles (tone and vitality), as well as accelerating recovery time and the relief of sore muscles. It is geared to improve athletes’ performance, as it decreases the risk of cramps and torn muscles and joints.
The main purpose of this massage is to realign the muscle layers and the connective tissue for a deeper effect.
It is usually done in case of severe muscle tension that causes pain. This massage relaxes your muscles, softens fasciae and helps to remove adhesions between them.
Neuromuscular massage successfully relieves pain (neck, lower back, shoulders, etc.) and it turned out to be an indispensable complement to treat fibromyalgia, post-traumatic neck pain, degenerative joint disease and sports injuries.
Life without rhythm does not exist. Heart-cells in living cultures are self-organizing and pulsating coherently (The Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Germany).
This is about a revolutionary discovery made by the German physician, Ulrich Randoll: cells can regenerate by mechanical pulsations which facilitate healing of muscles and recovery of tissues. The fast removal of waste products and acids, as well as the reduction of the absorption of liquids at the level of muscle cells, speed up the recovery process and relieve joint pain, headache, neck and sinus pain, etc.
The Matrix Rhythm Therapy, alone or combined with other massages for increased effectiveness, has been used with very positive results in the following cases:
- Reduction of oedemas
- Improvement of the elasticity and extensibility of tissues and muscles
- Tensions, capsulitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Nervous tissue regeneration
- Rheumatism, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, degenerative joint disease
- Premenstrual pains
- Lower back pain and lumbago
This massage also called prenatal or maternity massage is specially customized to the needs of pregnant women. It provides them a moment of relaxation and comfort which helps future mums to prepare themselves for the different stages of pregnancy before labor.
The prenatal massage has been proven to be therapeutically effective, as it improves circulation, reduces muscular tension, tones the body and provides physical and mental strength to pregnant women. It promotes physical relaxation by providing them the means to face up to physical, hormonal and emotional changes during the most beautiful and mysterious period of their life.
The honey massage technique has its origins in Tibetan and Russian traditional medicine.
Honey’s texture is ideal to exfoliate dead cells and remove toxins that are accumulated on the epidermis’ surface. Therefore, the function of this kind of massage is to exfoliate, detoxify, purify and drain. It stimulates the different superficial nerve endings of the skin, so blood flow is activated and the nervous system rebalanced.
Being an excellent nourishing product, honey makes the skin softer and firmer. Therefore, this massage is also beneficial form treating cellulite (‘orange peel skin’), wrinkles and some forms of troublesome skin diseases.
Hot Stone massage is a therapy that uses basalt stones (of volcanic origin) which provide a deep relaxation, as well as physical and mental awakening. It helps people who suffer from stress, depression, anxiety, insomnia, etc.
Hot stones warm up the muscles allowing to relief muscle knots, alleviate pain and clear lactic acid. Also, vessels dilate, which stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic drainage promoting the removal of water and metabolic waste products (toxins).
In addition, this massage helps fighting cellulite by destroying subcutaneous fat deposits.
Anti-cellulite massage helps to remove cellulite excess by stimulating skin-deep fat cells to facilitate their removal. In this way, the skin recovers its flexibility and elasticity, and it firms up, restructures, nourishes and softens.
This massage improves blood and lymphatic circulation, which promotes the removal of water and metabolic waste products (toxins).
Regular exercise and a balanced diet help to optimize and consolidate the results.
Lymph, a precious fluid and yet with properties long remained mysterious, was also known as ‘white blood’ and ‘water of life’ in the past. Manual Lymphatic Drainage, initially developed by Dr. Emil Vodder, stimulates lymphatic vessels to boost circulation of body fluids and improves the clearing of lymph and interstitial fluids.
MLD has many effects, including anti-oedema, analgesic, immune, circulatory, healing, draining (removal and detox), relaxing and anti-inflammatory effects.
This is a massage technique consisting of mobilization with a therapeutic target. The goal of this manual technique is to improve mobility of the peri-articular tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves), which is achieved by gentle, slow and rhythmic movements.

I met Irène in 2012 and I went for a massage twice a week. Her treatment was highly beneficial for me. I could gradually regain contact with my body, to “reintegrate” it by being less disturbed by the constant carousel of my thoughts and little by little tensions, pains and anxiety decreased. Just being touched, with gentleness and respect, within an environment of relaxation, made me aware of my limitations and to re-appropriate them.
Irène is a very energetic, positive and brilliant person, and she transmits these through her massages. She’s nimble fingers which spot the slightest tension. You go out of her sessions in a total state of well-being. I hope to see her in her new consulting room.
