The PHYTO5® "Step Beyond" Method of Energetic Skincare

The body is not just matter (solids and fluids) but also energy—vital energy. It's called prana in yoga and Ayurvedic medicine and chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and by practitioners of Asian martial arts. This ancient concept is also a very modern one as it is now demonstrated by quantum physics. Progressive medical doctors have embraced this approach:

Your body is a field of energy, information, and intelligence…capable of perpetual healing, renewal and transformation.
— Deepak Chopra, M.D. in Grow Younger, Live Longer
The physical body is actually a complex network of interwoven energy fields.
— Richard Gerber, M.D. in Vibrational Medicine

The point is that, as stated by Gerber in the same book,

If we are beings of energy, it follows that we can be affected by energy.

Therefore, with the right energetic tools and know-how, a practitioner can work on any body and skin problem at the level of matter (skin) like everyone else, but in addition, work at balancing the vital energy flow of the customer. If working on matter and energy simultaneously, better results are achieved.

Energy medicine states that body issues have a root cause in vital energy imbalance, or blockage, of vital energy flow.

With the PHYTO5® method, a spa practitioner can easily learn how to balance vital energy for better and faster results because the skin is a medium for balancing vital energy!



Originally, and for many years, the PHYTO5® method based on the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine was known as Phytobiodermie. For simplicity's sake, it is now called PHYTO5®.  PHYTO5® includes the Ageless La Cure line described below.

Ageless La Cure

The Ageless La Cure line has the same Phytobiodermie heritage as the PHYTO5® seasonal/elemental lines. It is intended for slightly more mature skin yet does not require learning the simple system of the PHYTO5® elemental line. The entire line is formulated with proprietary blends of essential oils, plant-based extracts, vitamins, minerals, algaes and clays. 


PHYTO5® follows the formulation principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). PHYTO5® products achieve energy-balancing according to the five elements and the five aspects of vital energy:

Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water.
