Prevention and wellbeing

Massage is a method for restoring both the body and the mind. It balances the psyche, relaxes the muscles, activates the lymphatic, circulatory and immune systems and increases the body’s resistance to disease.
The main reasons for consulting a massage therapist are relieving muscle tension and pain, reducing stress, recovering from and preventing injuries, increasing joint mobility and supporting health in chronic diseases.

Reflexology or foot massage

Look for appointment times

Reflexology is a holistic therapy which treats the cause of imbalance in the body as a whole. The oldest records of this method of therapy come from the inscriptions of the tombs of the doctors of Ankomohor, Egypt, in 2330 BC, depicting people sitting on the floor touching each other’s feet and hands. Similar images have been found in ancient Greece, Egypt, China, India and South-Western America. It is known that in the 4th century AD, Chinese acupuncturists also used reflexology as an additional work method.

During zone therapy or reflexology, a brake is put on all rushing. The person relaxes, giving the parasympathetic nervous system better working conditions, and as a result, the whole body begins to heal and recover. Foot massage improves digestion and relaxes muscles. In addition, kidney function improves and emotional sensitivity increases.

Reflexology helps with:

  • sleeping disorders;
  • musculoskeletal problems;
  • pain and inflammatory conditions when general massage is contraindicated.

A person does not have to be ill to benefit from the therapy. It is a procedure close to nature, where the body’s own healing ability is restored or activated in a natural way.

Therapy is not suitable if:

  • you have a serious psychiatric condition;
  • a woman has had recurring miscarriages;
  • the patient has a tumour;
  • the patient has mental health disorders.

The task of the therapist is to help activate the process of self-healing of the body through massage.
