It activates the whole body and slows down senescence.

Holistic massage is particularly loved for both its healing and rejuvenating properties, as well as for its immediate relaxation and enjoyment. Upon completion, your authentic beauty is revealed.

Holistic massage uses a set of techniques and manipulations that based on our experience we believe more effective as anti-aging methods, providing at the same time deep relaxation and addressing local problems.

  Thai Massage

Thai massage is an ancient healing method. It originates from Thailand and it is a part of Thai healing medicine. It is a massage system that is being done on the floor. The person who receives it wears light clothing and this is because Thai massage consists of several stretching, handling and correctional shifts.

The person who receives Thai massage wears clothes. That means this kind of treatment is not using oil on naked body. It is not suitable for people seeking relaxation. Thai massage has therapeutic nature. There are some techniques which are used for cervical or low back pain issues.

Deep Tissue Massage (Athletic)

Deep Tissue Massage aims to remove body tension, caused by chronic patterns of posture or movement (poor sleeping or working conditions, repetitive movements, athletic activity, old injury) and is the ideal massage in the menu of the best spa  in the world.

Deep Tissue Massage uses intense pressure on all deep muscle groups, with fingers, punches, forearms and / or elbows. This results in the relaxation not only of the superficial muscles but also of the entire structure and the course of the muscular groups and connective tissues that lie deeply and constitute the second and third layers of the muscular system. Thus it contributes to the combat of muscle contractions , chronic inflammation, muscle aches and stress.


Hot pouches contain therapeutic herbs. They are a pioneering technique that follows pressure on acupuncture points, triggering the stagnation or exaggeration of the meridians (setting). Applying the treatment is done throughout the body (from the soles to the scalp) with several pouches. The right choice of movements-pressures per area, the preparation of pouches and the proper combination of herbs according to the individual’s problem should be done with a lot of attention and knowledge. Only professional in aesthetics, aromatherapy and therapists / masseurs are able to use them.


The first reports on this method exist in the texts of Hippocrates. In his clinical list, Hippocrates recommends suction cups for the treatment of angina pectoris and menstrual disorders. Hippocrates suggests that suction cups are small in diameter, conical in shape and light, even if the disease for which they are intended is deep.

In the 19th century, the suction cups were harshly criticised by the medical community, but in the last decades their healing properties have been rediscovered.

Suction through cups stimulates the flow, especially blood and lymph, in the area where it is applied. In this way the blood and the lymph in the skin and muscle tissue are mobilised both in the area of ​​the suction cup and in the adjacent areas from where they are sucked. As a result, it improves blood circulation and oxygenation of the local tissues. Based on this principle, suction cups are used to relieve stressed muscles.


On the soles of our feet are over 7,000 nerve endings from every part of our body. Therefore, if our soles relax, the corresponding nerves in our body will relax too.

That is the goal of Reflexology, a method of alternative medicine based on the application of special pressures at specific points, through massage, mainly to the soles of the feet. Each special pressure is reflected in the corresponding body part that we want to relax. Thus, the nervous system and hence every other function of our body improves, in a perfectly natural way, without the use of drugs and without any possibility of side effects.


Rejuvance means renewal, rejuvenation. Today we know that the movements of this technique affect both the connective and muscle tissue of the epidermis, eliminating the imprints of the tensions we experience in our everyday lives. According to research, this technique restores what experts call “microcirculation” of the epidermis, improving the condition of the connective tissue, while promoting the proper functioning of the 2 fibrous proteins of the skin, collagen and elastin. These improvements activate the natural mechanisms of hydration, structural support and circulation of oxygen and nutrients in the skin tissues, while improving the elasticity of the epidermis. For muscular tissue, massaging focuses on the origins and insertions of the facial muscles (over 90 in number), the scalp, neck and cleavage. The effect is stimulating, strengthening and relieving muscles from the accumulated tension. Wrinkles soften while the face is refreshed.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). GUA SHA uses keratin plaques that are made of bone or jade with rounded edges, to remove toxins from the blood and the lymph. During the TCM, our body needs a constant and intense movement of energy (” Chi “) to keep us healthy and alive. But if there is a presence of toxins, “Sha” will form and cause congestion in the circulation. In Chinese, “Gua” means scraping or scrub the skin, and “Gua Sha” means the toxins that came to the surface with rubbing (thus restoring and balancing the “Qi” good circulation in the body).

Gua Sha massage is simple, scientific, effective and safe as it has no side effects. It has been practiced for more than 25 centuries by the Chinese and is a valuable heritage of TCM. Gua Sha facial massage is made with constant upward movements on the face, neck and cleavage after having massaged the area using essence induced oil.

Nowadays, as more and more people are looking for effective and safe ways to look better and stay younger, Gua Sha’s facial massage has systematically developed a great amount of fans, becoming popular in China recently for medical cosmetics.

This holistic beauty treatment can balance, restore and revitalize skin without leaving any signs, and without the use of chemical acids, microdermabrasion, botox injection or painful cosmetic surgery. It promotes not only the blood and the “Chi” in the circulation but also accelerates the regeneration of the skin cells, improves the absorption of the skin and prevents aging.
