Founder of Rahasia Nyaman
Foot Reflexologist, Healer and Lead Instructor
In 1992, I completed a Master Degrees in Art History in France and worked as a freelance graphic designer for the next 8 years ending up my career in New York.
Awareness has risen over the day after when I asked the lady who gave me my first Thai foot reflexology if I could try to do it on her. She agreed and at that moment I made the decision to become a reflexologist.
Moving to Arizona, away from the stress of New York, I began to teach myself foot reflexology and encountered Amerindian shamans. Through them, I began to feel that I was truly a ‘medicine woman’ and so began my journey towards self acceptance.
In 2001, I was back in France and enrolled in a one year training foot reflexology course. Since that time, I have kept on learning and developing new holistic therapies in the quest for optimal health and wellness. At that time, I practiced shiatsu, aromatherapy, massage, color puncture, reflexologies and ito-thermie. I also became a Reiki Ryoko Master, Shihan (4th degree) enabling me to pass attunements on to others.
After a few years of practice, I realized that people not only wanted to feel relaxed and have tension release but were searching to find the energy and space within them to make changes towards a better way of living. I started to integrate more spiritual and esoteric approaches to my healing, tailoring sessions to each individual-taking into consideration their deeper needs.
On an unexpected trip to Bali end of 2011, I realized IT was my soul’s destiny. I returned a few month later to open my first massage school. And after my business partnership dissolved, I started my own Institute of Healing Arts, Rahasia Nyaman – Secret of Comfort.
Our Vision of Teaching
At the end of the day, teaching is about having fun, experiencing pleasure and intrinsic rewards…
It’s about the former student who says your course changed her/his life.
It’s about another telling you that your course was the best one he’s ever taken.
Teaching is not only motivating our students to learn, but teaching them in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable.
Teaching is about caring for our art, having a passion for it, and conveying that passion to our students.
Teaching is about caring, nurturing, and developing minds, skills and talents. It’s about devoting time to every student. Classes are limited to 6 students.
Teaching is about being flexible, fluid, experimenting, having the confidence to react and adjust to changing circumstances.
Teaching is about humor. It’s about being self-deprecating and not taking yourself too seriously. It doesn’t mean that it lacks in substance!
Teaching is about listening, questioning, being responsive, and remembering that each student is different.
