The Japanese can now enjoy luxury treatments that are usually sought after by celebrities and royalty.
The Peninsula Tokyo recently announced the setting up of Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by French podiatrist Bastien Gonzalez. The studio will introduce luxury foot, hand and nail care treatments using his signature product line, Révérence de Bastien.
Favored by royalty, celebrities, and competitive athletes around the world, his proprietary line of cures and formulas will be offered in Japan for the first time, where they may be experienced only at The Peninsula Spa.
Gonzalez, a former skier, found his true calling in podiatry after a race injury that required six months in physiotherapy. He trained as a podiatrist in Paris and his professional treatments are currently available in 14 countries, with the addition of Japan.
“Many women have pedicures and manicures done to cover up their nails with polish, but I want more people to understand what is a true “pedi-cure” and “pedi-podos” derived from Latin, meaning foot-cure treatment where nails can be naturally healthy, beautiful and lustrous. A manicure or pedicure should not only focus on beauty, but also requires treatment of the skin and blood circulation to support the overall wellness of hands and feet. My Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio treatments restore this idea of natural beauty. We want our clients to love their hands and feet and make them a part of their regular daily body care.” Gonzalez explains.
