Wellness at Lamennais
Starting today, I offer Advanced LaStone® Therapy, Stone Medicine, Shamanic Journey, Ceremonies and Wellness Workshops at 5 rue Lamennais, 75008 Paris.

Advanced LaStone Therapy
An Advanced LaStone® Therapist or Practitioner has a solid grasp of how to work with stones. You must complete at least three full length LaStone® courses, earning 12 points in the internal system.
The first course is always Original Body, which introduces you to the stones and how to work with them. Following courses are advanced and can spread over a wide range of...

Why cold stones
When I first mention to people that I use hot -and- cold stones they usually pause, apprehensive of the cold. Who can blame them. When I say cold, most people instantly think of cold weather, snow, an ice-cube down the back, freezing fingers and a bunch of other uncomfortable things.
A massage is after all meant to be comfortable...

How to treat your massage stones
There are several things you should take into consideration when you take care of your massage stones. Sanitation is the most important factor and must never be neglected. I wrote about general hygiene a while ago, and will here share the official guidelines from the Geothermal Therapy Association. They have worked with Centres for Disease...

May February be filled with love and good things.

#27 - Happy New Year


I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year with lots of laughter and good experiences.

This past year has been exciting, new skills learned, lots of new clients and working at élément spreading the LaStone® experience. 2011 looks like it'll be even more exciting.

Right now I am finalizing the rental of a massage room in the 8th, close to Etoile and Arch Triumphe. This means that I, hopefully by the beginning of February, can offer LaStone® at two different locations in Paris. Through élément in the 6th, and as myself in the 8th.

One of the hurdles I am facing is to pick the day of week I want to rent the massage room. So if you have any preference, weekday vs week-end, Friday vs. Wednesday etc, please let me know so I can take that into consideration when I choose a day. Once things pick up, I will add another day or two.

With this new space, I also have the possibility to host workshops and courses during the week-ends. This can be Shamanic Journey and Native American ceremonies, Drum-making and Healing Hands, and wellness workshops.

If you're interested, please let me know so I can begin to organize.

Season greetings and reflections
With Winter Solstice yesterday, Christmas and New Year coming up soon, it is time for my stones to be on a small vacation, and for myself and my family to celebrate the season.
My stones have done an incredible job these last months after I started working at élément in Paris. Many people have been introduced to stone...

Healing Hands

Healing Hands the Native American version of healing and energy work. Using hand placements and working with intuition; comfort and healing is offered to the receiver. It is unobtrusive, deeply relaxing and caring. A safe practice for anyone to receive. Some even report how they feel tingles through their body, see colours and seem to float.

The Three Relations
The full treatment, The Three Relations is a combination of gentle facial massage with hot and cold stones, energy work and emotional boost.
With ceremony the stones are used and placed in accordance with ancient Stone Medicine traditions. Protection, empowerment, connection to Creator, removal of the old mask and applying a new mask to face the world.

Balancing the Water Fall
Balancing the Water Fall is a a treatment which aims to balance the flow of energies in the body. Traditionally it is thought that the water in the body is balanced and aligned. Looking at it from an Eastern viewpoint, meridian points are stimulated and the flow of chi in the body is balanced. No matter how you describe and think about it, it is the same thing going on.

All the best to you and your loved ones in this new year.
