Nothing beats a spa day when on holiday. Treat yourself at Harmonie des Sens, a health and beauty spa located near the centre of Thônes. They offer Reflexology, Swedish massage and Maderotherapy.
Harmonie des Sens also offers a mobile service, allowing you to experience a relaxing and revitalising massage in the comfort of your OVO Network chalet.
Ivana, who runs the spa and speaks good English, has also partnered with another local massage therapist to offer massages for two people.
Reflexology applies pressure to a range of particular points on your hands and feet that correspond with all the organs, glands, tissues and muscles in your body. This helps improve circulation of blood, oxygen and ‘qi’ around the body, relieving stress and healing pain in other parts of the body.
Swedish massage is the perfect remedy for stress and tension. In Sweden, ‘Swedish massage’ is simply known as ‘classic massage’. And that is exactly what it is – a classic treatment which represents the western standard for massage.
Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:
- easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
- improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
- helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
- reducing emotional and physical stress.
The technique of Maderotherapy involves a series of movements that are repeated using more than ten different wooden instruments. Applying these instruments to muscles, fat deposits and cellulite, the lymphatic system of the body is stimulated and thereby released from accumulated toxins. This release from toxins stimulates the metabolism to burn fat. Also, resistant cellulite pockets are destroyed, the skin swelling decreases and the ‘orange peel syndrome’ is levelled.
