There’s a reason why some of the world’s biggest names in fashion, entertainment and sports count Bastien Gonzalez as their go-to for energising tired limbs. From Naomi Campbell to Cate Blanchett, the Paris-based podiatrist is often flown around the world to tend to his A-list clientele.

TIME TO SHINE
For an all-inclusive hands and feet experience, try the Bastien’s Duo treatment. One of his most popular services, it completely redefined the standard mani-and-pedi experience with Gonzalez’s waterless method of using a scalpel, lancet, drills and Chamois leather nail buffer to restore softness to skin and impart nails with a healthy shine.
Next, sit back and relax as your limbs are resuscitated by the French podiatrist’s famous massage techniques. Two members of his team work seamlessly with synchronised movements, delivering an incredibly relaxing four-hand massage to rid them of the accumulated aches and tension so you feel incredibly renewed and recharged.
