More about Massage Créatif

A Massage Créatif employs many different massage methods, but is based on classical massage (also called Swedish massage), Californian massage and Shiatsu.

By merging the various massage forms and expanding upon the knowledge gained by each school, it has become possible to create an encompassing massage which takes the best elements from these massage forms.

Where a typical physiological massage is taken in steps with interruptions, the Massage Créatif is one long session tying the various body parts together and creating a flow which allows the client to completely let go and receive. Where a typical Californian massage is one long smooth massage, the Massage Créatif manages to work in depth upon muscles and include energy work and pressure points in such a way that it becomes part of the natural flow. Where Shiatsu is very methodical and works on pressure points and stretches, Massage Créatif manages to employ these effective methods while still giving the client a the benefits of a complete body massage.

The Massage Créatif has a clear inspiration from these three schools, and is capable of incorporating other massage forms such as lomi lomi, lymph drainage and reflexology techniques. The heart of Massage Créatif is that the masseuse employs the methods and techniques adapted to a given situation, based on her knowledge, experience and intuition.
