Massages (english)

 

GENERAL

The masseurs are all professionally trained. With years of practice, each masseur has their own very specific way of massaging. We advise you to try them all to feel the variety of touches and find the one that suits you best. The massages are done with oil with the exception of shiatsu.

CLASSIC MASSAGE OR SPORTS MASSAGE

An oil massage that is done on a massage table with a sequence of specific gestures: touch, kneading, sliding pressure, to which can be added vibrations, percussion and mobilizations.

This type of massage aims to relieve tension and balance organic functions. This is the typical massage practiced at the Bains, in as many different ways as there are masseurs. Do not hesitate to ask the masseur for a touch (pressure, speed) that suits you.

By adding friction movements, stretches with more emphasized movements on specific areas related to sport, we get what is called a « sports » massage that will act more specifically on the musculature of the athlete, either after or before physical exertion.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflex zone massage, mainly on the feet and sometimes the hands, having a stimulating or calming action on different organs, systems or joints.
