Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential.
TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE
An ancient healing art with more than 2500 years of experience in working with the body as a whole. The masseur works with his or her hands, thumbs, elbows, knees and feet to work deeply with energy points, meridian lines and muscles. At the same time, the masseur stretches the patient’s body in all possible angles, improving circulation and toning the nervous, respiratory, skeletal-muscular and digestive systems. This massage is used to improve general health and wellbeing, eliminating stress in the body, mind and spirit. It can also be used specifically to work with pain or tension in any muscle group and over time it can improve flexibility and posture.
A fusion of effective techniques used in the main types of holistic and energizing massages (Swedish, Sport, Thai, Therapeutic, …) and channeling of vital energy. With a constant rhythm, the articula and muscular movements – through kneading, friction and pressure – and of fascias, together with palm healing, come together throughout the massage, to achieve a very deep body and mental relaxation. This massage is suitable for people with physical and mental fatigue; high levels of social or work stress, and insomnia problems.
KOBIDO JAPANESE FACIAL MASSAGE
Known as Kobido massage, it is a compendium of massage techniques that aims to be a means to unite two points that have lost communication: the soul or spirit and the outer face; Since then, the masters of the art of aesthetics try to balance that broken communication with a specific massage on face, neck, and skull. Calming, it eliminates stress and harmonizes. It is a natural, non-aggressive and very relaxing alternative, combining ancient techniques such as facial reflexology and facial movement to achieve intense and deep stimulation of the face. Relaxes the facial and neck muscles. Tones, oxygenates tissues and brings luminosity. It increases the blood circulation and favours the creation of natural collagen.
BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a manual therapy, which evolved from the Osteopathic Therapy in which both therapies consider the body as a unit where all muscles, bones, organs are interconnected by connective tissues and fascia that surround the body, therefore the therapist works profoundly with the fascia listening with their hands to the subtle movements and pulsations from within to determine the health of the patient.
AYURVEDIC & THAI YOGA MASSAGE
A combination of two ancient healing systems incorporating acupressure, reflexology, assisted yoga postures, reflexology and deep tissue work. Moving into the muscle fibres and fascia with the help of detoxifying ayurvedic herbs, this is a unique and powerful massage to open, restore and refresh the body.
An ancient healing technique that gradually developed into a modern scientific approach, establishing the principle of energy zones that run throughout the body and reflex areas of the feet.
By applying different pressure techniques and massage, 7000 nerve endings on the feet are stimulated, encouraging opening of neural pathways, thus clearing energy blocks corresponding to all major organs, glands and body parts.
Reflexology naturally induces deep relaxation, improves circulation, clears body of toxins and brings balance to all bodily systems.
The Bowen Technique is a holistic, gentle, alternative, non-invasive therapy. It relaxes and rebalances the body, releases pain and tension and stimulates self-healing power. A Bowen treatment consists of gentle moves performed at different pressures, speeds and directions on small areas of the body, that could be anywhere from your head to your toes – it works to target the soft connective tissues, known as the fascia. The Bowen technique is safe to use on anyone, from newborns to the aged, with acute and chronic conditions. It is a holistic treatment that treats the whole person and aims to treat the cause of problems, rather than the symptoms. Conditions that respond to Bowen therapy are: muscular-skeleton & joints problems (frozen shoulder, knees, ankles, hips problems, back pain, sciatica, neck restrictions, poor mobility), female problems (pregnancy & fertility, menstrual pain, cyst, uterine fibroids), emotional imbalances (depression, migraines, headaches, stress, tension, insomnia, acute chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, bed wetting-for children), auto-immune systems disorders (fibromyalgia, arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, lupus, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Hashimoto thyroiditis etc), respiratory problems (allergies, hay fever, asthma, sinusitis) and many more!
