Nathalie Bouchon Poiroux, Cinq Mondes Treatment designer and Director of Training and Quality

For 10 years, Cinq Mondes has been gathering a selection of the best treatments from around the world that are remarkable for their quality, authenticity and ceremonial traditions. Nathalie Bouchon Poiroux - Treatment designer and Director of Training and Quality - is working closely with renowned scientist partners to create Cinq Mondes treatments, inspired by the "Beauty Rituals of the World(r)" and based on Dermapuncture(r), a technique that is truly "acupuncture without needles".

What are your sources of inspiration when you create a new Cinq Mondes treatment?

My first source of inspiration lies in the great wellbeing traditions from around the world. Foremost philosophies and medicines place considerable emphasis on the preservation of energy capital by advocating the need to pay daily attention to both body and mind. My second source of inspiration is more personal and intimate: it lies in the quest to establish movements that provide the right conditions to let go of stress and problems and through the resulting state of profound relaxation, restore energy and improve vitality.

How did this passion and interest for wellbeing of the body and mind emerge?

I studied Hindi and the ancient Hindu civilization at the Institute of Oriental Languages, which took me straight to the heart of India and Ayurveda. The mysteries of the body and its psychological complexity were centers of research throughout my studies and work as a clinical psychologist and professional massage therapist. It is this passion that still guides me today.

What is Dermapuncture®?

Having worked closely with masters and teachers of the sacred sciences of the body, I developed this technique that consists in working on key vital energy points on the face and body with the fleshy part of the fingertips. This especially allows specific and targeted action to stimulate skin radiance and facial youthfulness. Our movements draw their inspiration from Chinese and Japanese Rituals in the Art of Touch, such as KoBiDO, which relaxes facial features and deeply relaxes the body. This method is carried out in over 30 countries by our spa practitioners and bears witness to the excellence of our training and technical expertise in our professional treatments.
