Masa Sugiyama

Anatomy Beauty Therapist/ Holistic Health – Japanese Beauty Treatments


Originally from Japan, Masa has lived in France since 1997. Masa was involved in projects as a professional dancer in the National French Dance Company troupe from 1999 to 2005, including a world tour of dance in over 15 countries. In 2006, Masa received the Diplome d’Etat (a State Diploma of France for teaching dance) by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. She then pursued the study of anatomy for movement in dance. Masa became certified in the Gyrokinesis method in 2007 and in the Gyrotonic method in 2009. In 2013, Masa obtained certification in the Eric Franklin method of movement and in the Japanese therapeutic massage Depreopathy. In 2011, she added the therapeutic and energetic method Reiki to her repertoire, certified by Okuden and Theata Hearling.   Masa presents the natural face lifting method (SEITA for beauty; a Japanese manual therapy) for French fashion magazines.( Vogue, Madame Figaro, GRAZIA, Votre Beauté, etc ). After 10 years of teaching in the field of the anatomy and the movement and 8 years of experience as Cranial therapist, she founded her own method named the ‘MASA METHODE® ‘in 2017. Masa gives workshops in Paris and New York on cranial chiropractic and postural cosmetology. Her method actively improves both the anatomy and the beauty of the body through the work on bones and joints, from the feet to the head.

Cranial Beauty Facelift

This Cranial therapy differs greatly from other techniques treating the 23 bones of the face as part of the skull. Masa's gentle, precise and dexterous movements loosen bones little by little and drain and release toxins. The small touches that she exercises on the face stimulate blood circulation and boost the lymphatic circuit. Through the release of tension and proper relocation of the Temporal bones, your face will be sculpted into its ideal structure with your cheekbones more elevated. Thanks to this deep tissue cleaning, the dermis can better absorb the active ingredients of products, for example moisturiser and makeup. The skin firms up and better resists the appearance of wrinkles. After the session, you will feel relaxed and calm with a real sensation of wellbeing, as if you’d just came back from vacation.   Your eyes feel rested, the skin smooth and the face looks open.

Dress Meditation

Is a series of postural exercises using the entire body from head to toe. In the course, you will learn self-massage of the neck and shoulders and how to train hip and adductor muscles, affecting the silhouette of the hips, gluteus and thighs. You will understand how to move your arms in a healthy and correct way.  You will correct your shoulder positioning, the relationship between chest and back muscles and eventually the correlation between the adductors and the chest muscles. Postural cosmetology brings a wonderful fluidity of movement to your body.  The method will teach you to bring lightness and ease to your daily movements and to your mood, therefore avoiding unnecessary fatigue.  Dress meditation is like slipping on a dress that enables the body to move in a free and effortless way. This method will relieve tension from the body, and wake up dormant sensations for a feeling of effortless and awareness, highlighting a beautiful and healthy silhouette.  It’s as if that dress was really permanent, belonging to your skin. The exercises will rebuild your awareness from the inside, like a remodeling project, enabling you to shed your old postural habits.  A new presence, a new horizon, and a new universe await you!  These postural adjustments will change your world… a new you awaits!
