In order to stay in shape and not suffer continuous pain, we often pay more attention to not overtraining than to sports recovery. That’s good enough, but in order to feel good about your body, perform well and progress in your sport (gain strength, flexibility or mobility), our moments of respite must coincide with our training. Here are 4 Parisian addresses, tried and approved by GQwhich will help you relieve tension from sports or everyday stress, regenerate your muscles faster and also calm your mind and regain calm, at least for half an hour or an hour.
Anatomik, the most complete center
The place: A health center dedicated to sport and more broadly to movement installed on the Place du Marché Saint-Honoré, where physiotherapists, osteopaths, podiatrists and sports trainers practice, Anatomik expanded a few months ago by integrating the Wellness Galerie, the Galeries Lafayette. . Although therapeutic treatments can also be booked here, this new address offers many other services such as mobility and balance courses, sports training and neurological training. In terms of sports recovery and relaxation, Anatomik has high-tech facilities and an eclectic offer not found anywhere else in Paris: cryotherapy, pulse therapy, oxygen therapy or light therapy.
Recommended treatment: Oxygen therapy, a treatment that, as the name suggests, aims to provide an additional amount of oxygen to your body. Just enter a hyperbaric chamber that simulates a pressure above atmospheric pressure for 60 to 90 minutes during which you can relax, because not reading or listening to music. After intense sports activity, oxygen therapy removes lactic acid faster and thus relieves any muscle pain.
Price: 95 euros per oxygen therapy session.
The addresses: 29 Place du Marché Saint-Honoré, 75001; Wellness Gallery 40 boulevard Haussmann, 75009.
KAH Studio & Café, massages and cookies
The place: A newcomer to the gym market, KAH opened its doors in the summer of 2022 and offers HIIT sessions, yoga, pilates and other original formats (mobility, handstands and even 100% kettlebell classes). The address has 3 spaces dedicated to sports, a friendly cafe and, this is what interests us here, a treatment cabin, hidden behind the large mirrored facades of the lobby. What better place to start your sports recovery than where you train?
