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.

Thai Massage or Thai yoga massage (1h30) is an ancient healing system that combines Indian Ayurvedic principles with a stimulation of acupressure points though Yoga moves and stretches. It works on releasing the blockages and tensions around the body promoting the free flow of the "Prana".
Thai massage has many benefits for the individual inducing a deep relaxation state and has been shown that promotes a deeper, more restorative night's sleep as well. This deeper sleep allows the body to heal itself physical, and let you feel more refreshed upon awakening.

Surf massage is a shorter version of the Ayurvedic Massage. In here we focus mainly on the areas of the body which work the hardest 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.
