Types of massage

General massage – a kind of classical health-improving massage that is applied to all parts of the body to improve efficiency of both separate organs and the whole body as well as to relieve neuromuscular and psychic tension. The duration of the massage is not less than 60 minutes.

Aroma massage is a type of massage using essential oils, which can penetrate through the skin directly to the organs that need healing. The unique property of essential oils is their ability to harmonise and normalise different processes in the body. For example a combination of almond, bergamot, peppermint, lavender and mandarin essential oils can give a pleasant, uplifting and relaxing feeling of warmth and security.

Honey massage – performed with honey. Honey improves metabolism in the skin and subcutaneous fat, increases lymphatic drainage, which contributes to weight loss and reduction of cellulite. Honey, by giving off biologically active substances, adsorbs toxins and facilitates their quick removal from the body.

Anti-cellulite massage improves blood circulation in problem areas, thereby stimulating metabolism, which leads to a decrease in fat deposits and cellulite manifestations. The massage prevents the development of sagging and flabby skin.

The therapeutic segmental reflex massage is an effective method of treating various injuries and diseases of the internal organs. The massage is based on the neuro-reflexive connection between the internal organs and the corresponding parts of the spinal column. The therapeutic effect is given to the organs and tissues by applying the massage to certain areas of the back.

Acupressure point massage has been used in Oriental countries since ancient times. The essence of dot massage boils down to mechanical irritation of small areas (2-10mm) of the skin surface, which are named biologically active points, as a large number of nerve endings are located in them. The bioactive points are reflexively connected to various internal organs and functional systems.

Cone massage is a massage using medical or special pressure pots. It is based on a reflexive mechanism, based on irritation of the skin receptors, created in a vacuum inside the jar. Under the influence of the jar massage the blood and lymph circulation in the tissues is accelerated and the breathing deepens reflexively. It is indicated for colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, myositis, injuries, lumbodynia, spine osteochondrosis.

Vichy Shower Massage is a combination of wellness shower, general massage and aromatherapy. A general massage with essential oils relaxes the muscles, soothes the nervous system and relieves fatigue. The sedative effect of the massage is enhanced by the warm water flowing over the patient’s body.
