    client Nathalie Cecilia
“Hall Of Fame” inductee (World Massage Festival 2009) and Teacher of the Year 2013 Nathalie Cecilia, creator and master of Bamboo Massage Therapy, was born in Nimes, South France. With a Master’s degree in Philosophy and Languages from the Universitee Des Lettres De Montpellier, she began her career as a teacher and a translator. Traveling around Europe – and later around the world – she crossed the Atlantic in order to explore the United States and experience life here. It was then she decided to change her career. Keeping her goal to help people in mind, she attended the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. Three months following her graduation in 2004, she opened Two Touch Company – a Thai studio and massage therapy office in Sarasota, Florida. Many of Nathalie’s clients were asking for deep tissue treatment. She soon began to experience pain and fatigue in her hands and wrists. When she started using bamboo to assist her with deep tissue work, she noticed that her pain subsided and her clients loved it. She developed an innovative way to give bamboo massage on the table (Bamboo-Fusion) and in the chair, meanwhile creating her own bamboo set to give the massage. Her goal today is to help therapists provide deep massage without pain. This technique aids in avoiding repetitive injuries, such as carpal tunnel, and reduces the stress on thumbs, wrists and hands.

    When growing up in France, Veronique Farnault gained a deeper understanding, learning to appreciate the human body, the way it moves, how it is held, through diverse dance styles such as ballet, Afro-Brazilian, modern, jazz as well as gymnastics. Her dance experience in France and her discovery of the wisdom of the East through yoga served as a dual foundation upon which the Educating Hands Massage School of Miami exposed her to a wide range of modalities in 2001. This multidimensional training and approach are at the source of every stroke received on her table. Veronique has been a licensed massage therapist for over ten years, specializing in deep relaxation with Bamboo-fusion massage, shiatsu, reflexology and aquatic bodywork. She loves giving bamboo massage as her signature treatment, incorporating deep tissue work without fatigue, saving her hands and wrists from repetitive stress. Veronique enjoys sharing this extraordinary technique with every massage therapist she encounters as a way to make a difference in the world one person at the time.
