The day after the massage, some muscle soreness may be felt.
The objective of sports massage is to manage persistent muscle shortenings and restore the natural mechanical function of the muscle, to loosen adhesions that cause pain or movement limitations. This massage has an action on muscles and fascias. It is made with the entire surface of the hand, forearm and elbows and combines different techniques:
- Preparation (myo-facial release technique)
- Warming (effleurages, vibrations, frictions, percussions), in order to make the muscles warmer and more supple
- Deep tissue (palpate-roll, kneading, crushing and compression)
- Neuromuscular work on trigger points
- Drainage to clean toxins stored in tissues
At the beginning of the massage, after an exchange with Florence Laval, the areas to be treated (max 3) are agreed. Two types of treatment are available:
30-minute session: 1 zone
1-hour session: 2 to 3 zones
In both cases, the force of the manipulations is progressive in order to warm up the muscles and avoid spasms. This is an intense massage that can be painful and can lead to great fatigue after the session, proof that the body is recovering and eliminating. It is important to take care of yourself after the massage and drink plenty.
Sports massage is recommended:
after a sporting effort

Slimming massage palpate-roll
& lymphatic drainage
Eliminate fatty tissues and firm up your skin with the palpate-roll massage.
This manually performed palpate-roll massage technique decongests clogged zones, softens tissues and activates the blood and lymphatic flow, in order to eliminate fatty tissues. The technique consists of rolling the skin fold and the subcutaneous tissues in order to help lipolysis (breakdown and elimination of stored fat by the body's cells). The initial sessions can be slightly painful, however, overtime, the massage becomes more enjoyable.
This slimming massage works efficiently on all kinds of cellulite (aqueous, fat, infiltrated). However, the aqueous cellulite is the easiest to treat with the fastest results. After the initial sessions, the skin is visibly firmer. Then, after 5-6 sessions, the sponginess (orange peel) begins to disappear and you could even lose a few centimeters. The palpate-roll helps eliminate the adipocyte (waterlogged and fatty cells); For optimal results, a healthy lifestyle is crucial during and after the cure, because those cells are just waiting to be filled again!
The manual lymphatic drainage is an excellent complement to the palpate-roll: it stimulates and facilitates the lymph flow.
This technique aims to :
- drain excess liquids,
- clear toxins from the body,
- relieve heavy legs,
- enhance the immune system.
The massage is performed via soft, slow and regular pressure on the area to be treated.
