This ancient massage actually has its origins in India. The founder of this art was an Indian Doctor, Jivaka Kumar Bhaka, who was a contemporary of Buddha. The massage is conducted in light clothing, on a special mattress lying on the floor. It is a full body massage, during which the masseur uses steady and precisely-directed pressing actions on the pressure points of the body, combined with passive stretching movements. Massaging these pressure points removes energy blockages and removes pain in the joints, spine and muscles. The massage also helps strengthen the nervous system, increases mobility/ flexibility, and improves blood and lymph circulation.
The revitalizing aromatic massage is conducted on a massage bed whilst the masseur massages part or all of the body. The massage uses Swedish techniques in combination with aroma oils. Different aroma oils are used in our different spa locations, for example Peppermint, Rosemary and Lemon oil in a Hazelnut oil base. Our revitalizing aromatic massage is effective in improving blood circulation, the oxygen supply to the tissues, muscle flexibility and in refreshing and reviving the body. The time of the massage depends very much on you, but is generally available in 20-minute sessions that can be extended according to your wishes.

This is a slow massage with Swedish techniques that uses steady stroking movements of the hand in combination with aroma oils. Different aroma oils are used in our various spa locations. Our Relaxing Aromatic Massage is effective in releasing tension in the joints and tissues, improving muscle flexibility, blood circulation and built-up tension. The time of the massage depends very much on you, but is generally available in 20-minute sessions that can be extended according to your wishes.
This treatment is conducted lying in a comfortable position. A relaxing massage technique is applied with gentle pumping and stroking movements to the face, forehead, nose, eyes and ears. The same technique is also used on the nape or back of the neck. This massage gently reduces stress and tension and is recommended after a stressful day, stiffness after a long journey, or after working on the computer for a long stretch.
This treatment begins with a relaxing aroma massage (See: Relaxing Aromatic Massage). This is a slow massage technique that uses steady stroking movements of the hand with relaxing aroma oils. It is then followed by a hot towel back massage (See: Hot Towel Back Massage) for 20 minutes, using two rolled up towels soaked in hot water. The massage targets the back muscles, using the heat from the towels in a special rolling action. The masseur firmly rolls the towels across the neck, shoulders and down the back to the sacrum in one continuous action. It finishes with a short relaxation back massage. The combination of both treatments helps improve muscle flexibility, blood circulation, built-up emotional stress in the back, and releases tension and pain.
This treatment begins with a full body scrub. Dead sea salt and oil are used as an exfoliating scrub to naturally remove dead cells from the outer layer of the skin and open and clean out the pores. A warm shower then washes off the oil and salt particles, after which body lotion is applied to the skin in the form of a massage, leaving you feeling relaxed, revived and with baby-soft skin.
In this treatment we use honey combined with a special pumping massage movement that causes a vacuum effect. This helps the absorption of the minerals from the honey deep into the skin layer. Not only does this help to activate the inner organs, but at the same time it removes toxins from the body.

The ancient chinese method is one of the most powerful and effective ways of stimulating the reflex zones. As a response to the suction of the vacuum the capillaries expand in the treated area improving the blood supply and with the fresh blood more oxygen flows to the connecting tissues. Parallel to this the used blood, lymph and metabolites enter the blood stream, the tissues are purged and the detoxification of the body commences.

The difference between this treatment and a normal relaxing aromatic massage is that we purposely use essential Lavender oil from the ancient Monastery of Pannonhalma based on an ancient Hungarian recipe. The relaxation effect is generated through special active ingredients in the massage oil and the absorption of the Lavender essences. This treatment uses slow Swedish massage techniques with steady stroking movements of the hand to relieve muscle tension caused by stress.

Aqua fitness is different to water rehabilitation (See Physiotherapy: Water Rehabilitation) in that its focus is not just mobilization, flexibility and rehabilitation. Here, a number of exercises are incorporated into the class using large muscle groups that increase heart rate thereby giving the body a cardio work out. Regular exercise of the cardiovascular system has been proven to reduce heart disease, lower blood pressure, help weight loss and reduce the risk of many diseases. Aqua fitness uses the resistance of water to exercise the body as well as resulting in minimum stress being placed upon the joints. In addition to improving the cardiovascular fitness of the body, using certain water-based equipments, muscle-toning exercises are often incorporated into the class. All fitness classes begin with warm up and stretching, before beginning the more intensive exercises. Classes likewise end with a cool down and developmental stretching.
Nordic walking is derived from cross-country skiing and its principle is based on using two specially designed poles whilst walking. This means that during the workout the upper body is utilized, resulting in a more intensive cardio workout compared to normal walking. However because of the support from the walking sticks, you do not feel you are working out at such a high intensity, meaning a lower ‘perceived rate of exertion’. In addition, the exercise works the arms, shoulders, upper chest and back muscles through a full range of movement, lengthening muscles that are often tight. The poles are also good support and they provide stability if you have balance, knee or leg problems. https://www.premierfitness.hu/en
