Phiane Duquet- Nhotpasa

Hi dear participants and judges of the New Massage Association,
I am delighted to have the opportunity to meet you and learn from each others during the championship!
For this friendly competition, I would like to pay tribute to France, my host country and the one of my family. Following the war in South East Asia in the 75s , we were lucky to find a new home in the country where the language carries the sweetness of life. I also would like to honor my father, who just turned 90. I hope that my french heart will contribute to the wellness way of life with a special accent of wisdom.
Here is my story telling from the World Wellness Weekend press release:
The touch of wisdom by Phiane Duquet, ambassador of the World Wellness Weekend, founder of Spa Phiane Inc and the World Wellness Adventure.

What makes the world go around is energy.
MY grandfather was a Kung Fu master and a medecine man. He used to teach me acupuncture points before learning to speak and walk.
Playing to manipulate energy with a Kung Fu master was a privilege, but he never wanted me to practice martial art. I was to prepare myself to master the traditional Laotian dance taught by my grandmother.
This graceful gesture with the touch of wisdom in an elegant orchestration was the turning points for me.
During the pandemic I was working on sustainable care and massage techniques.
The gift of light that I have received from my grandparents’ teaching perfectly fitted the touch of wisdom. I call my work of art : “La Gestuelle Yin-Yang et L’œuvre de beauté”.
“L’œuvre de beauté ” is also my signature oil, a blend of sacred plants used by monks and alchemist masters. My facelift massage does not only enchant my guests, but it is delightful to perfect. It is a form of meditation and dance with the universe using the vital energy of Qi to plumb the skin from inside out and outside in.
Touching my guests’ soul mind, and body is an outstanding privilege to rise in high vibration. “L’œuvre de beauté ” is a work of a goldsmith. My calling is to share the ancestral gift of light because ” Our body is not only the temple of our soul, but the receptacle of light”.
