Zen Therapies

Both a healing art and science, the healing therapies truly provide an occasion to improve mind, body and spiritual health.

By letting go and giving another person permission to touch your body in a healing and respectful manner, you may find it easier, once you are off the massage table, to fully be attuned to life around you.

You do not fight your body’s pain. Your mind is relaxed and your body is at ease; you achieve healing through massage. You are in the healthful flow of life.

Ayurvedic Massage

The Ayurvedic massage is a sort of holistic massage techniques which promotes integration, equilibrium and a dynamic exchange between mind and body, based on the Tridosha theory.

The duration of the Ayurvedic massage is about 1h30, and is held in a calm environment that helps you to achieve the natural meditative state.

Ayurveda is a medical science from India that has more than 6 thousand years, being the mother of the modern medicine. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means science (veda) of life (ayur), in other words, the science of the healthy life.

The main goal of Ayurveda is to live in harmony with the laws of Nature connected to the 5 elements.

Each Ayurvedic Massage is 75 €.

Ayurvedic Marma Massage

Marma is a healing massage that works with secret energetic points. Marma brings you into a state of pure love, compassion and clarity – where there are no stories, no imprints and no judgements. You enter into an intimate space with yourself, effortlessly slipping away into a deep state of relaxation and healing. A state in which you heal your body from the inside out, nourishing your organs and letting go of suppressed emotions, stored stress, tension or trauma’s deep within the tissues. You will feel very present but also as if you are about to fall asleep, floating in this state nourishes your entire nervous system on a whole new level.

The massage starts with the back body to let your body relax, open and feel comfortable and is then followed with the Marma massage combining soothing massage techniques with long holds on the energetic points on the face, head, neck, shoulders, heart and belly. The face representing the soul, comes to a deep rest with the massaging of the mama points, letting weight be taken of the shoulders energetically, releasing sadness, grief from the heart and allowing repressed emotions to surface. For those that are open to it, a soothing massage of the points on the belly can bring an even more vulnerable and opening experience, as it is the root of all our 72.000 energy currents in the body.

Each Ayurvedic Marma Massage is 75 €.

Surf Massage

Surf massage is a shorter version of the Ayurvedic Massage (45 min) . In here we focus mainly on the areas of the body which work the harde7st during your surf, like the back, neck, shoulders and arms.

Treatments focus on the relaxation of the muscles and connective tissues specifically used during surfing.

These techniques enhance body’s own recovery processes, and reduce the risk of some common surf injuries such as whiplash, sciatic nerve pain, lower back, neck and shoulder pain and of course sore or fatigued arms. Massage is beneficial for any ocean sport where paddling is involved.

Each Surf Massage is 45 €.
