From: Spa Beauty Geek,
This summer may see the ultimate sporting event for Great Britain with the 2012 Olympics, but it’s not just super fit athletes that will be venturing over to London and the Olympic Park; trainers and fitness therapists will also be heading to the capital.
One of the world’s leading musculoskeletal therapists, Rohan Quarry Day, will be based at the luxurious COMO Shambhala Urban Escape at the Metropolitan London hotel this summer. Focusing on his own devised version of musculoskeletal deep tissue therapy (MDTT) for those who experience sporting injuries, reduced movement or just general bodily stress and tiredness, the treatment can be beneficial for lengthening muscles, removing toxins and calming the nervous system - sounds worthy of a medal to us.
MDTT involves a mixture of massages, stretching, strengthening, acupressure, reflexology, physiotherapy, and breathing techniques to create an individual treatment tailored to your individual needs and your body’s requirements. Postural analysis will study how they use their bodies, check problem areas and range of movement so that they can then work on increasing that range with isolated stretching and strengthening techniques. Massage combined with breathing techniques then helps to soften muscles and increase blood flow around the body.
Australian-born Rohan has a client book full of Olympic athletes, professional sports players and dance teachers. On coming to London this summer he said:
“Over the past 10 years I have treated some of the world’s top athletes, travelling alongside them to competitions and sporting events. My focus today is time-poor business professionals and weekend athletes, many of whom have the same issues as professional sportsmen and women but who don’t know where to turn to with pain or movement issues. I am excited about bringing my expertise to London – which for 2012 is home to the world’s finest sporting event.”
Sessions will be available for 60 min for £150 and 90 mins for £220 at the COMO Shambala Urban Escape at the Metropolitan London hotel on London’s super-stylish Park Lane.
