Papillon – Geraldine Chesta: Comfort and Relaxation through touch.

Hi, I’m Geraldine and I want to help people feel good through health and wellbeing therapies. I’ve lived in Nottingham since 1999 and am originally from Antibes in the South Of France.

I’ve always had a keen interest in beauty but more recently I’ve developed a stronger interest in the process of healing the mind to heal the body.

Through my own experience with chronic illnesses(MS), I’ve used and discovered the many benefits holistic therapies offer and how important it is to have some ‘me’ time.

I’m happy to have studied in Nottingham and in France to become a fully qualified beauty and massage therapist and Reiki practitioner. I am now developing as a Reflexologist.

I carry out my treatments using the wonderful Weleda natural skincare range.

The benefits of holistic therapies are endless because they always work in harmony with a person’s needs.

I also specialise in treating people with care needs and senior citizens because these groups of people, like everyone often need a healing hand.

Please book through my website http://lepapillon.info or call me on: 07707 083249.

  • Aromatherapy massage
  • Indian Head massage

About Weleda: Strengthening the personal balance between body, mind and spirit. Weleda has been making a valuable contribution to this balance ever since its founding over 90 years ago. In other words: we want you to feel good,in body, mind and spirit. Weleda’s natural and organic cosmetics promote well-being: if you want to stay healthy and fit it is important to feel comfortable in your own skin. We have thousands of different pharmaceuticals available for illnesses and injuries. We rely on the body’s healing and regeneration processes, strengthening the body’s defences and restoring the balance of body, soul and spirit. Weleda’s natural and organic cosmetics and pharmaceuticals are based on an anthroposophical understanding of people and nature, which states that life processes in the human body and nature are similar. As a result, all preparations and products are formulated using carefully selected natural substances. However, for us what goes into the body is just as important as what does not –we constantly avoid the use of synthetic fragrances and dyes, preservatives and mineral oil-based ingredients.
