#37 - Happy Holidays!


Star Keys Massage & Wellness will also be closed for three weeks during the summer holidays.

I'll be back in mid-August; recharged, inspired and ready to give you the massage of your life!

Return at rue Lamennais:
Wednesday the 17th of August I have a slot or two available during the day and the same is true for Wednesday the 24th. Wednesday the 31st I'm fully available again.

Returm at élément/rituel:
I'm fully available from Monday the 29th of August and onwards (not Wednesdays). It's possible to book a massage the week before, but my availabilities are limited.

The pilates studio and wellness centre élément in the 6th had new owners per first of July and has now changed name to Rituel. There are plans for new workshops and classes, and during the summer they'll redecorate and organize the place, including making a new and better massage room. It'll be interesting to see how things become after the holidays.

#36 - Happy Summer Days


I've been busy transferring my blog from Blogger to WordPress these last weeks. There's still some tweaking that needs to be done, and while I'm at it, the whole graphical identity will change. I have a professional Graphics Designer working on a new logo for me and I'm excited to see what the result will be. So please bear up with me should you find broken links or missing articles.

In other news, I will be leaving for my summer vacation the last week of July. This means there are only three Wednesdays left if you want to have a massage before the holidays. Book now to make sure that there's a spot for your summer massage!
