Meeting with Anne-Sophie, holistic therapist

To prepare your summer body, we are pleased to introduce Anne-Sophie, holistic therapist, specialist in Maderotherapy techniques.
She will be present exclusively on Tuesday, June 21 at the Marais boutique to help you discover this radical technique against cellulite for free.

Who are you? What is your background?

My name is Anne-Sophie.
After 20 years in fashion as director of communication and public relations, I decided to leave this world to make way for my new balance and find meaning and harmony in my life. I turned to well-being, a personal quest which later turned out to be a vocation.

Why did you choose to devote yourself to Holistic Care?

After a long professional career rich in human contacts, I became aware of the power of well-being: to bring empathy to others by offering different treatments based on holistic techniques with the aim of harmonizing body and mind:

- Naturopathy: to rebalance vitality and state of health.

-Facial massages: provide tailor-made facial treatments, bringing relaxation and an anti-aging effect.

- Maderotherapy: a massage technique using wooden tools aimed at draining, sculpting the silhouette and acting in depth on all forms of cellulite.

Can you tell us more about how maderotherapy works?

A series of repetitive movements are performed using the tools and applying targeted pressure, with the aim of intensifying the breakdown of fat cells so that they can be eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.

We break the fatty deposits, we smooth and they are absorbed in order to restore tone to the skin while draining and stimulating micro circulation.

This anti-cellulite massage helps redefine the contours of the body, tones and firms the skin while activating the production of elastin and collagen.

In how long can we observe the 1st effects of maderotherapy on the remodeling of the body?

At the end of a session, you will already be able to observe an improvement in the quality of your skin.
You will also feel your legs lighter because we work the lymphatic system as a whole and thus revive the venal system.
The ideal is to set up a cure varying between 5 and 10 sessions.
Is it painful?
Maderotherapy can be slightly painful when working on installed and encrusted cellulite because it dislodges it and breaks up the fatty deposits to smooth them out.

What is the place of eco-responsibility in your life / your profession?

I decided by converting myself into my new job as a therapist to move to the edge of the ocean.
I wanted, for my son as well as for me, to be more in contact with nature, and therefore to be more sensitive to it and to feel more concerned by ecology.
This is a first step in learning eco-responsibility.

Your little easy gesture for the planet?

Eliminate plastic and packaging as much as possible and therefore consume in bulk as much as I can.

What is your favorite piece of the Apnée dressing room?

Definitely the bob!
And of course I love the new Women's collection !
