When coming for a Shiatsu massage, please put on comfortable clothes, since you do not take it off like when coming for a classical massage. You will do with something covering the whole body - leggings or a tracksuit and a long-sleeved t-shirt.
Shiatsu is an ancient Japanese healing method based on traditional Chinese medicine. It belongs among massage techniques, but goes by far beyond the scope of the massage. In translation, shiatsu means finger pressure. Using the pressure of the thumbs, fingers and palms, but also knees, elbows or feet on the appropriate points on the body restores the energy balance of the body. The aim of shiatsu is to promote the process of self-healing and personal growth through balancing the Qi energy in the body. Physically- mental well-being of a person as the unity of body, mind and soul depends on the harmonious flow of this energy. Shiatsu massage increases personality awareness and sensitivity, and releases tension. It supports and nourishes vitality.
The massage is deeply relaxing and strengthening and refreshing at the same time. It can also help people who are undergoing a crisis, a difficult period or a change process. People dedicated to shiatsu disagree with the simplified interpretation that they are able to heal.
Shiatsu massages are an excellent prevention of various civilisation diseases, expedite the convalescence after an illness or operation, alleviate side effects of some medical procedures (chemotherapy, radiotherapy) or can help in pregnancy (stabilize the after-effects of hormonal oscillations, prevent backaches, varicose veins, and mainly stimulate a closer contact of the mother and the foetus ). The massages help at total fatigue and stress, allergies, breathing disorders, and eliminate and alleviate various types of pains – back, neck. They are recommended for regeneration of sportsmen and for total reinforcement of blood circulation. They can alleviate gastrointestinal disorders.
Shiatsu can work very well where other means of treatment do not work or work only very slowly, where the cause of the disorder is unclear or undetectable by conventional means. It is effective at psychosomatic ailments, when you do not know “where they actually come from", whether it is a problem of the organ, musculoskeletal, nervous or psychological origin, at so-called ambiguous disorders, and in the supportive treatment of practically all mental illnesses.
This is a proven detoxification method. Honey massage takes advantage of the exceptional effects of honey (especially for detoxifying and for reflexology treatment) and compression massage touches.

A therapeutic treatment that supports health, alleviates strains and stress, strengthens the immune system and harmonises the physical and mental processes.

There are two known ways in which essential oils affect the human body: by inhalation and through massage.
The beginnings of the use of aromatic plants date back more than 4,000 years. In ancient egypt, fragrances were obtained from them in a simple manner (first by pressing, then later by means of primitive distillation) and were used as a perfume or added to fragrant ointments. These ointments were first used by pharaohs and by high priests, and only later did they spread amongst the common people in the form of cosmetics, massage oils and as medicines. Essential oils have found their use in the treatment of both mental and physical health disorders.
Cup massage is an ancient chinese method. In western countries this type of massage is chiefly used to treat the musculoskeletal system. During the cup massage round glass cups are applied to the skin on your body. To increase the effects, the cup is applied to either active acupuncture points and reflex points, to promote the correct functioning of individual organs, or to so-called trigger points (painful points).
Mechanical – promotes blood circulations, oxygenation, relaxation
Reflex – renews correct function in internal organs, influences the lymphatic system - a large amount of harmful substances is flushed out of the body
Lava stone massage is an ancient type of mythical chinese massage. This type of massage was first described in china 2,000 years b.c.
Compared to classic, restorative or relaxing massages, we have found that clients very quickly fall into a state of mental relaxation during this type of massage. The stones are heated in a water bath to a temperature of 40 – 50 degrees and then placed on the body while still warm. Individual parts of the body are massaged with hot oil and two larger stones held in the palm of the masseuse’s hand.
We have a tremendous number of nerve receptors on our faces. Facial massage therefore affects not only the nervous system but also the entire body.
Unlike on other parts of the body the muscles of the face are attached to the skin. Our face reflects our mood and our emotions. Stress and tension can have a devastating impact on our appearance; muscles tense-up thereby creating a harsh expression. Massage relieves this tension and also softens the facial expression.
Massage removes calloused skin and impurities and releases the sweat and the sebaceous glands; the blood circulation of skin is improved and the skin is also strengthened. It relieves symptoms of ageing and increases resistance to colds and to other infections.
Apart from maintaining physical fitness, sports and reconditioning massages also improve overall appearance and are an effective tool in the fight against physical and mental fatigue. They also actively contribute to regeneration of the musculoskeletal system following injuries, illness, or simply physical exertion. The effect of these types of massage on a person’s psyche is also notable and eliminates accumulated tension and the results of stress.
