Fascia - Shiatsu
Well-being – Healing – Education
A hands-on treatment which harmonizes body and soul by ‘educating’ perception. Two methods that approach the holistic view of well-being are combined – Shiatsu and Fascia Therapy.
By using techniques which vary from gentle non-invasive touch to strong pressure, joint mobilization, and muscle stretching, we seek to release, decongest or tone the connective tissue (fascia), using the ancient knowledge of energy channels (meridians) and acupuncture points, which run throughout our body, form and organize our matter as a single psychosomatic entity.
In this healing method every receiver is seen as a unique, particular and evolving human being.
Holistic Bio - energetic
This is a technique created after years of practice and experience in specialized methods of healing and balancing energy in the human body, methods that are all based on a good knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

Lymphatic drainage is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
Hot stones massage
Hot stones massage is an ancient method of energy healing. It has been used by many nations in a number of ways by the shaman healers of Hawaii, the native Americans, the Chinese, the Egyptians and the ancient Greeks. Basalt rocks, black volcanic rocks which enclose the geomagnetic qualities of copper and iron, are heated so as to release energy and vibrations.
The hot stones strengthen the effect of the massage and increase the intensity of the usual contact. When the rounded stones start sliding on the skin which is already moist by the massage oils, the muscles release all tension and the receiver feels like being in a hot spa.
