Massages have been a proven and particularly pleasant form of body treatment for centuries. Scientific studies attest to their healing and mood-enhancing benefits. A massage doesn’t only improve your sense of wellbeing in general, it also addresses complaints affecting the musculoskeletal system, alleviates pain and relieves tension.
Our therapeutic massages range from classic massage to lymphatic drainage, Tuina and reflexology foot massage. The technique to be used during your health stay will be tailored to your personal health circumstances. Massages achieve optimal results if they are applied regularly at short intervals. We recommend a series of six to ten massages at the rate of two to three treatments per week.
