CHINESE MEDICINE with Elaine Huntzinger


06 28 32 03 87

Elaine was raised with Chinese medicine, recalling how her mother would give her specific herbs to drink or foods to eat as child, to treat various ailments. A devoted fitness enthusiast, Elaine studied and became a Pilates instructor, teaching her craft in several corners of Europe.

While later living in Thailand and after the recent loss of her mother, she began to suffer from eczema and allergies; remembering her mother’s teachings, she again turned to traditional Chinese herbs and techniques for a cure.

Having found holistic medicines to be her surest remedy, especially for her skin health, and she decided she wanted to formally study these ancient sciences. Elaine moved to Sri Lanka for two months for homeopathy training under Dr. Anton Jayasuriya, where she first discovered the benefits of acupuncture, working in free clinics there and marveling at how effective acupuncture was for so many. She decided to refocus her studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and returned to the United States, where she continued to teach Pilates simultaneously.

During her studies, she worked under Matt Calison at his RIMAC clinic treating athletes at UCSD, as well as at a clinic for the homeless. Upon graduation, Elaine expanded her studies in Master Tung acupuncture under Dr. Tan, Dr. Robert Chu and Brad Whisnant, experience which she felt finally rendered her into a connoisseur of the body’s workings.

Elaine has been sharing her holistic knowledge in Paris since 2008, with a focus on the benefits of acupuncture for skin health and facial rejuvenation.

THE CONSULTATION: Deluxe Facial Rejuvenation

Referred to by clients as “the Botox alternative”, this treatment builds upon the Facial Rejuvenation, adding another 30 minutes dedicated to sculpting the neck, chest and shoulders, and releasing further tension and fatigue from your face.

Heated crystals are used to create movement through the muscles and connective tissue, while extensive gua sha work is done on the neck and shoulders, releasing stress and tension held here and stimulating the lymphatic system to de-puff these areas and help the body rid itself of debris.

You will see an immediate difference following the treatment, as increased circulation and connective tissue stimulation delivers nourishment and oxygenation to your face, rejuvenating the tissue and providing a radiant glow.
