Book for massage
Classic massage is sought after when individuals want to improve the condition of all body systems, alleviate stress, relieve muscle tension, and activate metabolic processes.
A session of classic massage typically lasts 40-60 minutes and consists of three stages:
- Muscle warm-up.
- Stimulation of the lymphatic and circulatory systems.
Upon the client's request, the therapist can focus more on a specific area such as the back, neck, thighs, and so on. Alternatively, clients can opt for a full-body massage.
This type of massage covers the entire body, except for the head. Usually lasting no less than an hour, the procedure begins with work on the back and progresses downward to the feet after the client is turned over.
A full-body massage:
- Alleviates pain
- Increases overall body tone
- Improves metabolic processes
Results are noticeable after the first session.

Sports massage is beneficial not only for professionals but also for those leading an active lifestyle, such as gym-goers, runners, and amateur athletes.
- Stimulates heart and blood vessel function
- Releases muscle tension and hypertonicity
- Warms up muscles
Sports massage can be pre-workout (before training or competition), regular (emphasizing specific muscle groups), or restorative (after workouts). Specialists at the PIED-DE-POULE salon tailor an individual program for each client.
To combat cellulite, reduce body volume, or alleviate swelling, PIED-DE-POULE offers the following programs:
- Anti-cellulite massage: an effective method to prevent and address cellulite.
- Vacuum massage: enhances blood circulation and lymphatic movement, breaks down subcutaneous fat deposits, reduces volume, and tones the figure.
- Lymphatic drainage massage: reduces swelling, accelerates lymphatic system activity, actively removes toxins from the body, aids in weight loss and volume reduction.
Some of these massages involve the use of specialized equipment. The based PIED-DE-POULE salons employ state-of-the-art technology, and their massage therapists are trained accordingly.
Considering the potential impact of massage, it's essential to be aware that it can be quite aggressive on the body. All types of massage have contraindications.
- Absolute contraindications completely prohibit massage and include conditions such as blood disorders, tumors, aneurysms, thromboses, phlebitis, and more.
- Temporary contraindications, such as inflammatory processes, colds, viral infections, must be considered.
- Local contraindications include conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, abrasions, cuts, mastopathy, significant varicose veins, and so on.
The list of contraindications is extensive for all three groups. Massage therapists at PIED-DE-POULE always approach this matter with great attention, as our clients' health and well-being are our top priorities!
