“QI-prog” – Sports programme

Session rate


During intense training periods, the sportsman’s body is subjected to violent attacks and sneaky traumas that are often neglected, but that in the long run might give rise to musculoskeletal disorders that can lead to injury.

In order to minimise these risks and to optimise the athlete’s performance, Denis Valton proposes a combination of several techniques including shiatsu and other preventive care and energy rebalancing solutions, both as a physical and mental approach.

Additional care to reduce the risks of injury

Generally in most sports structures, a medical staff is present to provide follow-up care for the athletes.
Despite the quality of their work, this is unfortunately not always sufficient. Athletes pay inappropriate or uncomplete attention to their body and some injuries often result from a lack of awareness.

Musculoskeletal disorders are at the origin and the cause of all the injuries that slowed him down all along his sports career. This being acknowledged, and on the strength of the success met at the competitions (Olympic Games and World championships) by the athletes followed-up by Denis Valton, the latter proposed a “Qi-Prog” as a preventive solution.

A combination of these solutions enabled the athlete to recover her physiological and psychological balance, to become aware of her bad postures, to recover her body image and to better listen to her body. Her body then reacted efficiently against latent or sneaky traumas and she was able to avoid painful discomforts.
