Perhaps surprisingly for a small town in rural Puglia, Torchiarolo has an excellent Health and Beauty Centre, Luz de Sol. The centre offers a wide range of treatments including excercising, massage, facials, manicure, pedicures, steam room etc.
In November 2009 I started a course on the power-plate excercise machine. 15 minutes, three times a week, each session is equivalent to an hour in the gym! It works for me, for the first time in 30 odd years I have managed to lose 14 kilos and inches off my waist, stomach, bum and thighs!
The staff at Luz de Sol are friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing. Now you can enhance your holiday at one of our Puglia villas with treatments of your choice. We have now come to an agreement with Luz de Sol where visitors to any of our villas will offered 5% discount on any treatments.
Stretching excercises seek out, not only muscle fibres but also the connective tissues (tendons, bands etc.) present in the contractile structure. The connective tissue is extensible (can be extended), but if strecthing exercises are not carried out regularly this essential characteristic is lost.
When speaking of stretching it is also necessary to consider joint mobility (also known as: Articular, flexibility, extensibility, etc.): and the capacity to make large movements to the maximum extent permitted by the physiological joints.
This ability is affected by:
- the bone structure of the joint;
- anatomical and functional componets (degree of extensiblity of the ligaments, tendons and muscles);
- the ambient temperature;
- body temperature.
It is important to remember that muscle fibres adapt rapidly to any situation.
Streching classes are available every morning from 8.30/9.30 10.00/11.00.
One to One single lesson € 15.00.
Two people € 10.00 a person.
For groups of 3 or more € 8.00 a person.
