Simply touching

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.

Genuine "Handiwork" The right massage for your needs

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.

The following massages are offered at our Health Center:
Classic Therapeutic Massage

During a therapeutic massage, various massage techniques – such as stroking, rubbing, kneading and vibration – are targeted at specific areas to achieve the desired affects.

Partial Massage of the Lymph Vessels

Disorders affecting the lymphatic system result in fluid buildup in tissue and swelling. With this massage method, that fluid is removed along with metabolic waste products, restoring equilibrium to the body.

Reflexology Massage

Pressure applied to the reflexological zones of the feet has a positive affect on the associated organs and body parts. Blockages and tension are released, allowing energy to flow freely again..


In this traditional Chinese massage technique, the acupuncture points and meridians are stimulated. An alternative to classic acupuncture, it relieves tension, unblocks the meridians, and stimulates blood and energy flow.

Soft-Tissue Massage

A form of reflexology massage. The goal of this therapy is to stimulate tissue below the skin. The massage is very strenuous and often perceived as unpleasant due to the probing sensations.

Segment Massage

In this variant of soft-tissue massage, the body is divided into 24 different “segments”. The method is intended to counteract reflexive changes in the body, tissue and organs.

Breuss Massage

A sensitive though powerful back massage which, by loosening and gently stretching the spine and sacrum, may relieve physical, spiritual and energy blockages. Aside from after a Dorn treatment, it may also be used as a stand-alone therapy method and is very effective, especially in the treatment of disc problems.

Dorn Breuss Massage

A gentle and effective technique to stabilize the spine. Tension is relieved, the musculoskeletal system is strengthened. Muscle tension in the area of the spine is released, allowing nerves, blood vessels and lymphatic pathways to work better. By reducing muscle tension, it is often possible to correct spinal misalignments quickly.


The hydrojet massage is a dry and oil-free form of massage. The hydrojet is a special massage table with numerous jets. Wearing loose clothing (e.g. a tracksuit), you lie on a rubber mat on the warm water bed. With the hydrojet massage, tension is relieved and the muscles are relaxed. In addition, the blood circulation is stimulated and the metabolism is increased.
