Massage Assessment

L’OCCITANE worked with the group's COSNAT Institute, a clinical evaluation center based in Marseille in the South of France, to demonstrate the effectiveness of our best-selling massage.

The benefits of this 60-minutes massage were assessed using two methods: declarative methods, where the subject(s) evaluated their perception of the massage, and non-declarative methods, where our experts assessed the impact of the massage on the subject(s).

Test Results

The different methods of assessment and evaluation following the massage gave the following results:

● A statistically significant increase (+17%) of the frequency of genuine smiling after massage, as assessed by facial expression analysis during the post-massage interview with 30 subjects.

● A statistically significant decrease (-20%) of the frequency of stress-related behaviors, as assessed by gesture analysis during the post-massage survey interview with 30 subjects.
