Bastien Gonzalez – Portrait

BGA Bastien Gonzalez reverence foot fetiche pedicurologie

A ski aficionado since his early childhood, Bastien went on to become a ski instructor at the Lioran station in Auvergne. It was there that a bad fall would alter the course of his future. Whilst undergoing physiotherapy, he met a podiatrist. It would be the catalyst for his career, and in 1997 he obtained his Podiatry Diploma at the Assas school in Paris.

Bastien Gonzalez’s career as a pedicure-podiatrist began in a private medical clinic in Paris’ famous Place des Vosges, after which he quickly established partnerships in the city’s most luxurious hotels such as the Hotel Costes and Le Bristol, offering his bespoke treatments. Thereafter, he began travelling internationally to meet with and cater to his private clients. With an unwavering passion for his trade, Bastien Gonzalez is constantly in pursuit of perfection. In doing so, he seized the opportunity to further develop the French pedicure market by expanding his business in dedicated spas within some of the world’s most beautiful hotels. This was how he conceptualised the first PediSpa – which would later become the Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by Bastien Gonzalez, numerous now worldwide.

Bastien and his team continue to push the boundaries in the evolution of his ‘haute couture’ treatment rituals. Three foundations embody his philosophy:

  • Unique treatment concepts, developed by experts in the French medical pedicure field.
  • Specialised, innovative products.
  • Passionate, highly qualified, meticulously-trained teams.

A pioneer in the field of bespoke hand and foot beauty for over two decades, Bastien Gonzalez draws upon his unique global vision, vast network and 360-degree perspective in crafting and delivering exceptional openings and successful operations. Whilst aspiring to the highest standards can certainly be challenging, Bastien Gonzalez and his international team have the expertise to deliver innovation, services and creative solutions to every partnership, every project and every guest experience.
