Re­lax, re­align and re­ju­ve­nate.” These were Ju­lian’s open­ing words to us when we vis­ited his Spa over the week­end. And let’s just say… This guy has the touch! This mas­sage ther­a­pist knows ex­actly what to do and how to do it. Con­stantly seek­ing to im­prove his skill set, whilst bring in­no­va­tive meth­ods to a cen­tury old prac­tice. We re­luc­tantly got off the ta­ble, to have a one on one with Ju­lian Tous­saint to learn more about his trade.

2Nite: Why did you en­ter the field of Mas­sage Ther­apy?

Ju­lian: As a child I would rub my grand­mother’s back and she would al­ways com­ment on how good it was. Even as an adult at my pre­vi­ous job I would of­fer free mas­sages to my col­leagues, and they will al­ways rave about how “good my hands were.” So when I reached a cross­road to switch jobs, I de­cided to be­come a mas­sage ther­a­pist as a ca­reer and not just a job. What can I say, I love to help peo­ple and I can mas­sage all day!

2Nite: Of all your mas­sage tech­niques name your favourite

Ju­lian: I love sports mas­sage. A top sports mas­sage ther­a­pist in the United States trained me and my tech­niques are not read­ily of­fered in Saint Lu­cia. This tech­nique is also a cross be­tween deep tis­sue and stretches, which in­volves a lot of pres­sure.

2Nite: What makes your ser­vice unique?

Ju­lian: The fact that I am heav­ily in­vested in this and it is what I love to do. Also my train­ing has al­lowed me to of­fer tech­niques that are not of­fered in Saint Lu­cia. I also of­fer a ser­vice that is pretty in­no­va­tive. It is called the “Chair Mas­sage”. Ba­si­cally, I work along with large-scale com­pa­nies and come to their busi­ness to pro­vide 15 min­utes chair mas­sages to their staff to help re­lieve stress. I am mo­bile, so I come wher­ever you are.

2Nite: Are you into any other prac­tices?

Ju­lian: Yes, I am also a Colon Hy­drother­a­pist. I was in­tro­duced to this area about three years ago from a Doc­tor in Venezuela. Since there is a raise in colon cancer and colon re­lated med­i­cal is­sues here in Saint Lu­cia, I felt it was im­por­tant for me to get in­volved in this area. I may not con­sider my self a doc­tor, how­ever I am a health prac­ti­tioner and my ser­vices of­fer just that.

2Nite: Any plans to ex­pand?

Ju­lian: Yes, but I do not have a time line as yet. I would def­i­nitely want to open a clinic ded­i­cated to both spe­cial­ties I prac­tice and cryother­apy as well.
