Hubert de Tourris (Hamsa)
Hubert has been practicing and studying massage for more than 20 years. He has completed training in Ayurvedic massage and Ayurvedic nutrition, and is a certified yoga instructor at a 2000-hour level. He draws on his solid training and experience to create a massage session uniquely tailored to individual needs. Hubert has training and experience in several methodologies of body and energy work. In his late teens he practiced Do-in – the Japanese technique of self-massage, which combines Shiatsu and Acupressure with stretches, breathing and meditation. In 1987 he travelled to Bali. Balinese culture is strongly influenced by Hindu culture, where massage is regarded as an important healing art. His direct experience with the healing powers of massage inspired him to learn more. Hubert went on to study formally at Tapovan, one of the major centers in Europe for learning Ayurveda. There, he completed a two-year study of Ayurvedic massage. He further extensively studied the system of Nadis (the energy channels) and Marma, which are special points in the body that can be manipulated and stimulated to promote well-being. Hubert is working as a professional masseur in Chamonix since 2007 and through his commitment; sensitivity, passion and awareness of the body’s needs , he offers an experience which allows for healing to take place.
