– A Palper Rouler story –
Emmanuelle Blanche is an impressive woman. When you meet her for the first time, you hear the French accent and see a petite, stylish well-polished woman. And then she starts telling her life story and you realize she is much more than her beautiful refined appearance. Her story is one of hard work, determination and accomplishment.
She lived all over France but at the height of her career in fashion, she was living in Paris. She indulged in everything the city has to offer: cafés, restaurants, bars, nightlife and fashion. Emmanuelle’s pace of life was hectic: she worked 18-hour days at times, yet was out evenings and weekends enjoying life to its fullest. She enjoyed getting weekly skin and body treatments, such as Palper Rouler, after long runs along La Seine and the Eiffel Tower. Emmanuelle still appreciated and took the time to treat herself, something she thinks Americans don’t do enough of.
And just like in the movies, Emmanuelle met a handsome French man who lived in LA. She did the long-distance relationship for a while and then finally decided that it was time to leave the chaotic Parisian fashion lifestyle for the city of stars. She closed that door and never looked back.
As she says, LA is not an easy city to move to. The neighborhood cafés don’t have the same European vibe. The people are harder to connect with: having conversations with strangers is rare. She tried to find things that reminded her of home to bring her some comfort.
Emmanuelle went on the hunt for a Palper Rouler massage. A popular signature French massage (that) consists of several maneuvers:
Form a fold with the fingers, rolling it to break adhesions between adipose cells underneath the skin and the skin itself, enabling their elimination.
She couldn’t find a place that properly performed the massage… so she decided to open her own massage therapy studio and offer the service.
