An Ayurvedic massage creates a unique experience that focuses on relaxation and on the removal of emotional blocks. It restores and helps maintain health, beauty, and strength. It strengthens the whole body and rejuvenates. Not only does it have an excellent cosmetic effect, but above all, it is regenerating and healing. Ayurvedic therapies are known for their high effectiveness.
For the treatments, I only use natural and edible products. They contain numerous microelements, have medicinal properties, and give a great cosmetic effect. Traditionally prepared oils and herbal compositions are selected according to the psychophysical type of man (dosha). Thanks to these preparations do not clog pores but cleanse and elasticize the skin preventing premature ageing.
The most commonly used oil in my practice is bio sesame oil of the highest quality. According to Ayurveda, full body massage with warm sesame oil cleanses the body of toxins and gives the skin radiance and silky smoothness. I offer various types of massage using warm oil and specific herbs, depending on the dosha, i.e. your constitution and lifestyle.
…let go and surrender to a treat of total self-care!
Whole Body Abhyanga
The whole body oil massage, including head and face, aims to balance doshas at the level of body and mind. This technique supports the circulatory and lymphatic systems, stimulates the skin and muscles, and supports cell renewal by eliminating toxins. It perfectly removes deep tensions, relaxes the nervous system as
well as balances it.

Massage with Sound Bath Session
After your whole body is massaged, relaxed, and free of tension we will fill it with the divine sounds of the instruments. Sound bath (or sound healing or sound bath meditation) is a relaxation technique and meditative experience whereby participants ‘bathe’ in the sound waves produced by instruments such as crystal singing bowls, chimes, gongs, drums as well as human voice.
This combined with the massage brings relaxation to the highest level. It might take you on a journey into places your mind hasn’t visited before. Every session is different. I might be using different instruments than the previous session based on what feels right to me and the client’s preferences (if there are any).
Extra 30 min of sound bath session + €30
Private Sound Bath Massage
with Crystal Bowls
Energetic Channels Balancing
Crystal singing bowls produce sounds that evoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment. In addition to their traditional usage for meditation, crystal singing bowls are used for deep relaxation, stress reduction, holistic healing, Reiki, chakra balancing, and World music. Each bowl is assigned to each energetic center or chakra. When placed next to the chakra’s area the vibration is bringing back balance. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones which the bells produce has a direct effect on their chakras.
We tune you into your own breathing and when you are lying relaxed you will be surrounded by the instrument’s sounds and vibrations. Playing these instruments usually causes an immediate centering effect. The tones set up a “frequency following response” that creates a balancing left/right brain synchronization.

Feet Marma Massage With Foot Bath
for Vital Areas of the Body
First, you will soak your feet in the cozy, warm bath with salts from the Manao collection made by Agata. After that, we will move to a very relaxing foot marma massage.
Marmas are the connection points where the body, mind, and soul meet. These points are located along the energy flow channels (so-called vital points, there are 107 in total). Through the right pressure, they energetically stimulate and thereby unblock internal organs through which the body’s vital forces can circulate in a state of equilibrium. Marma touch massage harmonizes the whole body, stimulates regenerative processes, and promotes self-healing.

Ayurvedic Head, Face, and Neck Massage
The head has the highest density of marmic points of all body parts. A head massage has a very important healing function and not only strengthens the muscles and scalp but also stimulates the body’s natural healing forces leading to higher movements from the lower to the upper body parts.
The treatment begins with a cleavage massage around the shoulder girdles, by movement along the nape of the neck to the upper parts of the head. By massaging the scalp with oils, the hair roots are strengthened. Hair becomes stronger and shinier. This massage also helps with headaches and sleeping problems. This is a deep and intense massage.

Netra Basti is a wonderful treatment for certain eye conditions: dry eyes, blurry or poor vision, double vision, redness, eye pain, difficulty opening or closing the eyes, and falling eyelashes. It’s perfect for those who use their eyes excessively – like working all day on a computer. While it’s far more than a beauty therapy, it can make the whites of your eyes whiter.
It may look a bit uncomfortable but I tried it on myself many times and it is definitely not as scary as it looks. The results are amazing!
