In 2001 Christophe Marchesseau arrived in Saint-Barthélemy on the advice of a client’s friend, Carine Roitfeld, then editor-in-chief of Vogue France magazine. He immediately fell in love with the island.
After 7 years living in Paris, the benefits of water and the telluric energy so typical of Saint-Barthélemy, allowed him to recharge his batteries and to enjoy the virtues of an open air thalassotherapy. He realises why his clients come back here every year to catch their breath.
In 2002 he decided to settle down and opened a studio for massage therapy, physiotherapy and the Gyrotonic Expansion System® method in Saint-Jean. Christophe Marchesseau improved his method of therapeutic massage by mixing the new techniques, Swedish massage, kinesitherapy and osteopathy.
