Going to the spa to enjoy relaxing treatments is without a doubt one of my favorite activities. So when the Spa Source La Roche Posay invited me to discover their beauty and health benefits, I jumped for joy so I could not believe it. If you go through the city of La Roche Posay, here is what you can discover.
Sleeping at the hotel Les Loges du parc
Nice hotel, I loved their cozy rooms. I show you a room tour in the video. My room did not have a living room but some of their rooms are really nice suites. The bedding is nice and warm, the hotel team is lovely. The breakfast room is a kind of covered veranda in which the sunlight comes in abundance, in short everything to make my happiness.
Thank you to the concierge who prepared cocktails late at night and even went to pick up customers who were stuck at the Casino because more taxi available. It is to tell you how much they cajole their customers.
Benefit from spa water treatments at La Roche Posay Spa Source
I discovered a center that practices many spa treatments. It is the only spa that offers exclusive worldwide rights to use the products of the brand La Roche Posay during their care.
In addition to traditional treatments (massage, thermal infusions, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi pool) one can benefit from laser treatments practiced by professionals: rejuvenation, hair removal and others. And yes I asked the question they do laser hair removal on black skin. I limit jumped to the ceiling when I was confirmed. You know how complicated it is to find centers that practice black skin laser. Besides, do not hesitate to send me your good addresses if you have some.
Dinner at the Michelin starred restaurant of the Hotel Saint Roch
We were welcomed as princesses and the dinner was excellent. For a not so pricy at all, formula we had a Kir peach appetizer that I loved (apparently the specialty of the area), as an appetizer, a pastry of warm goat cheese and almonds served with a salad (I know that Lyd would have loved). In dish, I chose duck skewers with rosemary (I do not usually eat duck but it served rosé … a delight) and dessert, an excellent tiramisu speculoos. We were served excellent Beaujolais (I just realized that I did not take the reference to the sommelier) 🙄.
Post-cancer cure at La Roche Posay thermal baths
At the thermal baths of La Roche Posay, many dermatological conditions are treated. From acute psoriasis to eczema and burn victims. Targeted care is proposed for each of these conditions, including care for children as young as six months of age for certain diseases.
The care I could discover at the baths of Connetable this weekend were those of the post-cancer cure.
The human body reacts differently from one person to another, but when one has undergone chemotherapy, the body and the skin are seriously affected notably by the problem of extreme drought, and sometimes even vaginal dryness due to advanced menopause caused by chemotherapy.
The post-cancer spa treatment in La Roche Posay, prescribed by your doctor, lasts three weeks and is covered by social security. It allows patients to benefit from numerous treatments such as post-operative healing aid, the return of mobility and the rebalancing of skin hydration.
If you ever know someone who could benefit from this treatment, do not hesitate to tell him to ask his doctor to fill in the appropriate Cerfa form. This is a dermatological care and not oncology (make sure that the doctor is not wrong 😉)
Visit the Pavillon Rose, a peace of heaven for patients in post-cancer treatment.
The association Aqualibre offers in the Pink Pavilion, a warm and welcoming, several workshops and therapeutic conferences for patients : adapted physical activity, reconstructive makeup and psychological support.
I was able to attend a makeup demonstration on a patient who had suffered from skin cancer. Seeing her with a huge smile after her makeup asking for photos of her so that she can keep them warm to my heart. The purpose of these workshops is to teach the curists to make makeup on their skin according to their different skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, scar masking or burn) with gentle products that respect their already fragile skin.
The touch of personalized advice is this sun protection that our makeup artist considers indispensable! It is index 50 and suitable for sensitive skin.
In summary I spent a beautiful weekend and very emotional. I met great bloggers during this trip. Girls who have suffered cancer, who are my age and have a rage to live out of the ordinary.
Thank you to the team behind this trip for inviting me and especially thank you to all these teams who work for the well-being of people.
