Classical massage is a traditional and widespread massage technique that is based on Swedish massage. Oils and lotions can be used, but not necessarily. Therapeutic massage can be given on the whole body or just on single parts of the body, according to the client’s wishes and needs. The main goal is to increase oxygen supply to the tissues and to remove toxins, thus speeding up the metabolism, restoring lost energy and improving muscle tone. According to the methods used, the effect is either relaxing or toning.
Classical massage techniques include stoking, friction of skin and subcutaneous tissue, kneading of muscles, vibration and various tapping movements. After the massage, it is recommended to drink herbal tea or mineral water and not to eat for a few hours.

Thai foot massage is largely influenced by traditional Chinese medicine and Indian folk medicine. The use of reflexology foot charts and sticks to stimulate reflex points originated in China, whereas gliding strokes along with the use of oils and ointments draw influence from India. There are zones on feet that reflect all organs. It may be said that the whole person is reflected in the feet. When these zones are stimulated, the nervous system sends a new and correct message to the brain. Frequent stimulation causes the cellular memory to change, the body recovers its function and the sensitivity of relevant reflex points decreases.

Shiatsu is a therapy originating in Japan. It combines the knowledge of classical Chinese medicine, digipuncture and special stretching exercises. The human body has a self-healing power, but in our busy world we fail to notice our body’s alarm signals or we just ignore them. Through relaxation, shiatsu helps us to become aware of our body again and to restore our energy reserves. Shiatsu massage is performed on a mat on the floor, in light sports clothing. The masseur uses finger pressure (shi – finger; atsu – pressure) to restore a person’s normal energy flow. Shiatsu is suitable for treatment of long-term chronic illnesses as well as preventively.
Shiatsu massage is especially well-suited for those who have sedentary jobs and suffer from chronic back pain. Long hours spent crouching in an unnatural position strain lower back muscles. Tired and tense muscles often cause back pain. Shiatsu is a wonderful remedy against such pain – it is a massage that relaxes lower back muscles and improves their blood supply. Being a so-called deep massage, it also affects the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
