The Founder

Relax, Rejuvenate, Rebalance


Azur Wellness is the realization of my dreams. It was ten years ago that I first had the idea to open a retreat center. Through trialing many different retreats I hope to bring to you the best of what I have experienced over the years. I wish to offer you a fabulous retreat in a serene environment, where you can relax and take charge of your health. I want to help you relax, rejuvenate and re-balance.

My Wellness journey

My journey began with a curiosity, satisfied by reading nutrition books, and led on to studying and obtaining a degree in nutrition. I always had an interest in complimentary therapies, especially massage, and completed my first massage training 25 years ago whilst living in Japan.

In 2000 I received a Diploma in Body Work at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies in Sydney. Detoxing and fasting seemed like a natural progression. My first experience with water fasting was when I was 30, just over 20 years ago. I have traveled to Thailand, Puerto Rico and California to explore different approaches and methods of detoxing and fasting. Five years ago I discovered and began fasting with the FFJR (Francophone Federation of Fasting and Hiking) here in France.

The FFJR is dedicated to fasting based on Dr. Buchinger’s method that I offer here at my retreat. I completed my training at ISUPNAT (school of naturopathy) in Paris in 2018 allowing me to become a member of the FFJR and to support people through a fasting regime.

What is fasting for me?

Food has always been a big part of my life, growing up in a family of keen eaters, and spending most of my working life as a chef after having trained at the Cordon Bleu in Paris. I increasingly understood the importance of food in managing our health & wellness.

I fast approximately 2-3 times per year and it allows me to take a break and reset my body from excess. I’ve experienced many benefits from fasting and it’s the best remedy I could have ever imagined, serving as a multi-vitamin, anti-ageing cream, mind clearer, energy booster and weight-loss pill – all in one!
