Six Senses Spa

Ski recovery program

08 December 2023 - 10 March 2024

It's no secret that skiing is an all-round, energy-intensive sport. Daily practice, even over a short period, can put the body and muscles to a severe test, particularly joints and ligaments. Antonis Sarris, head therapist at the Six Senses Spa for 10 years now, is no stranger to these ski injuries. Every year, he is confronted with them, often caused by poor warm-up and recovery.

With this in mind, and with the arrival last season of our 6 biohacking machines, he has created for this winter a program specifically designed for skiers, combining pre-ski physical preparation with a series of post-ski treatments to facilitate the recovery process. 

The various machines used before skiing are designed to stimulate the production of nitric oxide, which is essential for regulating blood circulation and boosting muscle congestion when you're on your skis.

In just 20 minutes, your body will be warmed up for the day's efforts. After you've hit the slopes, our therapists will invite you to relax with a 10-minute PEMF* session to put your body into parasympathetic mode (or in less technical terms, rest mode). You'll slip into Normatec* boots for a 20-minute restorative session to promote leg recovery, improve circulation and reduce lactic acid build-up, while enjoying a soothing head massage from our qualified therapists. The experience concludes with a 15-minute session of photobiomodulation*, which promotes cellular vitality and helps reduce inflammation.

* Photobiomodulation, also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is a process of low-energy wavelength absorption that triggers cell signalling phenomena, leading to important biological syntheses.
