Pedi:Mani:Cure: Studio by Bastien Gonzalez
Bastien Gonzalez, internationally famous French podiatrist renowned for his Podiatry & Pedicure Clinic in the Hôtel Bristol, Paris, has hand-picked and personally trained the specialists offering manicures and pedicures at One&Only Royal Mirage. His exclusive pedicure includes a specific massage focusing on flexibility and skin conditioning.
Bastien has long recognised the importance and the vulnerability of the feet, which are hidden most of time, in comparison to the hands which are always visible. Locked in shoes, lacking oxygen and supporting the entire system, Bastien believes passionately that the feet deserve specific and intensive treatment.
As a result, Bastien developed his method as a unique blend of strict medical care combined with a more holistic approach. He has made it his focus to embrace foot care within a concept of wellbeing which takes its root in an aesthetic philosophy. Bastien’s pedicure is a new global perception which is focused on three main areas:
Bastien's Duo Treatment – 75 minutes
- Skin and nail treatment: a true pedicure combining care and maintenance
- Beauty: enhancing the natural brilliance of the nail
- Wellbeing: thanks to a specific massage which focuses on muscular flexibility, joint mobility, circulation and skin conditioning. From the toes up to the knees, each muscle and tendon is worked to help recover optimal mobility. The result of Bastien’s Pedicure is immediate: the foot becomes lighter; the whole body seems to be floating.
The ultimate in luxury and total relaxation of experiencing the professional expertise of Bastien for a complete treatment of feet, nails and hands in four hands synchronization.
