Art is a permanent guest at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris. This September, the Spa My Blend by Clarins chooses to celebrate a new kind of Art with a unique, total face and body treatment: “The Art of Touch”. A brand new Clarins Signature Treatment, exclusive to the hotel.
The quintessence of Clarins Skincare for the most comprehensive and regenerating of experiences: under a choreography of listening hands, wrapped in the aromas of invigorating fragrances, “L’Art du Toucher” is a new, re-energising and relaxing experience that relieves men and women from the fatigue and tensions of city life.
Touch is at the very heart of Clarins’ history. This science gives rise to the exquisite textures and innovative treatments that have made Clarins’ expertise so renowned. Over the years, it has allowed the development of massage protocols that are even more pertinent and tailored than ever. An art has been born of this alliance of absolute expertise and the delicate sensitivity of those who put it into practice: The Art of Touch.
For the Clarins Beauty Coach, every body is a new territory. She explores its contours with her fingertips or a press of her palm. Through imperceptible tremors and subtle areas of resistance, she deduces its key strengths and weaknesses. Her hand soothes, comforts and calms. Her thumbs linger over a spot and unknot tension. Her palm, forearms and elbows reawaken reviving energy fl ows at the heart of the body.
Made up of three steps dedicated to three energetic touch techniques, The art of Touch relaxes, revitalizes and regenerates from head to toe.
Step 1: balancing touch
This step creates a sense of trust before relaxation and total calm take hold. The hands are reassuringly placed on the key areas of the face and body, which soothes and creates a feeling of serenity. The heartbeat slows down, energies are balanced and tissues oxygenated.
Step 2: stimulating touch
Its aim is to encourage energy to flow freely through the body. Inspired by the rhythmical movements of shen shiatsu, the Beauty Coach progressively applies pressure all along the energy lines with her palms and thumbs. The energies are channelled to the centre of the body and then harmoniously distributed to the extremities.
Step 3: enveloping touch
Devoted to the entire body and face, this step represents the intense and stunning conclusion of the treatment, drawing on an exclusive and targeted selection of Clarins products of excellence. The face is drained, hydrated and sculpted. The Beauty Coach uses thumbs, palms, forearms and elbows on the body to recuperate and release deep energies. The intensity
of the pressure on the back, legs and stomach is adjusted with millimetre accuracy. Areas of tension are relieved. The body gradually melts into absolute well-being. It is totally calm.
The Art of Touch by Clarins: 190€ for 1.5hr treatment (access to our swimming pool, sauna and hammam facilities possible, with a 50€ supplement).
