List of Wellness massages (17 items)
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.
Foot massage is different from reflexology (See Physiotherapy: Foot Reflex Massage).. The foot massage is a gentle, general massage with Swedish massage techniques concentrated on the feet, ankles and toes. The massage is conducted on a normal massage bed with the feet slightly raised. It has the effect of improving blood circulation, and releasing tension, tiredness and stiffness in the feet and ankles. This treatment is recommended after a long day or tiring journey
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.
The relaxing aromatic massage is conducted on a massage bed whilst the masseur massages part or all of the body. 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.
Hot stone therapy is a variation on classic massage therapy. Massage oil is first applied to the body, which allows the stones to glide smoothly along the muscles. The stones used are normally lava or basalt, a type of rock rich in iron that retains heat. These stones are heated to a suitable temperature and used to massage the back. After the massage with the stones is completed, the treatment continues with a normal massage using Swedish techniques. When this is completed, the hot stones may then be placed on key points on the body and left for a short period of time. Depending on the length on the massage, this can then be repeated on the front section of the body. The massage is effective for back pain, poor circulation, stress relief and tension.
The lymph system is crucial for the body’s drainage of toxins and bacteria. This massage uses a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements to stimulate the lymph nodes. The massage begins in the lymphatic area of the neck, and slowly works down the body to targeted areas. Different from Lymph Drainage (which is carried out by a physiotherapist for serious health conditions), a lymph massage can be given by a trained therapist or cosmetician as part of an anti-cellulite or detox programme.
A traditional south-indian massage simultaneously harmonising the triple unity of the body, mind and spirit. During the treatment natural essential oils are used in a personalised way following diagnosis of the dosha (a unique combination of vata, pitta and kapha). The treatment extends to the entire body with the exception of the face and the section of the scalp with hair on it. In addition to traditional massage using an intensive massage technique it tightens and nourishes the skin, strengthens the immune system, increases metabolism and improves circulation. Indications: acute and chronic backache, exhaustion of a mental origin, osteoporosis.
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. Our Lavender Oil Massage is effective in releasing tension in the joints and tissues, improving muscle flexibility and blood circulation and releasing built up tension. The remaining oil is given to the guest after the treatment for home usage and as a souvenir and memento of Hungary.
This magical, pampering treatment uses a candle massage oil in a special ceramic pitcher designed especially for the light appliance of the oil which contains a variety of scents. Before the start of the treatment, guests are able to choose the appropriate fragrance to suit their mood. The solid palm oil turns liquid after being heated. The candle massage oil has a superb skin softening and protecting effect. By the end of the treatment, the skin becomes velvety-soft, flexible and pleasantly-scented, while the body is physically, energetically, and mentally recharged.
This aroma cup contains argan oil and gold dust, which is lit and changes to liquid gold before your very eyes. Our guests are spoiled during the treatment with this heated "liquid gold", combined with sophisticated massage movements. The unique features of skin-nourishing argan oil are its 80% essential fatty acid and its high Vitamin E content. It increases oxygen supply to the skin, provides elasticity to the skin, regenerating and binding free radicals, and helps restore the skin's hydration. The soothing warmth and perfumed fragrance of the liquid gold is nothing short of enchanting. After using – just as if you had stepped out of Cleopatra's shrine - the skin becomes silky to the touch, bewitchingly attractive, golden shiny, and fragrant.
We have now extended our Danubius Magic holistic hot-oil candle massage to include a special champagne/strawberry aroma. After it has been lit, the warm massage oil melts and turns into a rose colour, coupled with an irresistibly alluring champagne/strawberry aroma. Champagne is symbolic of luxury, pampering and special occasions. The dry Champagne extract promotes vitality and hydration to the skin and maintains and repairs collagen fibre. After the treatment the skin will stay fresh and youthful thanks to the anti-oxidant effect of the strawberry extract. At the end of this 50-minutes full body massage, your skin will glisten and be slightly perfume-scented thanks to this hot massage oil.
The massage uses Swedish techniques in combination with 100% natural Grape Seed Oil.
The light pleasant fragranced oil, rich in active ingredients, is easily absorbable, leaving no greasy after effects, just velvety smooth, moisturized, elastic skin.
Thanks to the high content of E and F –Vitamins, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acid, it helps slows down the skin’s aging process and alleviates fine lines.
The massage is effective in releasing tension in the joints and tissues, improves muscle flexibility and blood circulation and relieves built-up tension.
The special effects of this treatment combine both the benefits of massage with an effective skin treatment for the foot. The skin on the soles, which can often be cracked and dry, are softened with Heavenly Linden Cream from our owned labeled line of Danubius Care Collection beauty products. This rich protective cream is an excellent product for foot massages, being absorbed completely into the skin, softening the soles of the feet. The active elements in the cream replace the fat content of the skin helping to preserve its softness. This treatment is recommended for tired feet after a long day or tiring journey, using Swedish massage techniques concentrated on the feet, ankles and toes. The massage has the effect of improving blood circulation, releasing tension, tiredness and stiffness. The remaining cream is handed to the guest after the treatment for home usage and as a souvenir and memento of Hungary.
The ACCESS BARS Head treatment aims to nurture both body and soul. During the treatment, a special technique is applied to 32 points of the head. Each point is believed to have an effect on different aspects of the life (for example, money, control, creativity, sadness, joy, sexuality, ageing, etc). A gentle touch of these points eases the mental, psychic and physical blocks that have accumulated over our lifetime. The treatment itself is pleasant and relaxing and reminiscent of a head massage, except that it isn’t based on traditional massage motions, but rather achieves its effect by touching specified points or so-called “BARS” for just a few seconds. The effects are noticeable during the treatment and by the time you leave, you will be in a perfect physical, mental and spiritually relaxed state. Also after the treatment the mind will feel clearer and more focused. Not only is there a beneficial effect on certain health problems, for example: sleep disorders, weight issues, but also relationship or financial problems as well. The repetition of the treatment can help you to resolve many life challenges. It is suitable and safe for adults and children alike. If there are any fields in your life which you would like to change, then try this new, effective and unique method.

This treatment is carried out in a bath, sometimes with soft whirling water at a temperature of about 34 °C. To this different herbs and oils are added depending on the effect desired.

The bath is normally combined with massage or an alternative wellness treatment.
This treatment is carried out in a bath of soft whirling water at a temperature of 34 °C Milk and honey are used as a basis for this treatment and are added to the water. Honey is known to contain a large concentration of natural minerals, trace elements and vitamins. It also has a smoothing, antibacterial effect on the skin and the skin feels noticeably soft and smooth after this treatment. In addition the soft massaging water helps the body to relax and unwind. The Cleopatra bath is generally recommended after a dry brush massage (See Massage: Traditional Dry Brush Massage).
Mixed to a pleasantly warm bubble bath of 34 degrees celcius, we add wine originating from the local area. The bubbles from the water gently massage the body relaxing the muscles, meanwhile the anti oxident ingrediants from the wine are absorbed through the skin into the body. We recommend this treatment as part of a wine and wellness program, often combining it with a wine cream massage afterwards.
The salt from the dead sea is famous for its healing qualities, particularly with regards to skin and mobility problems. We combine this unique ingrediant with a hydromassage bath. The dead sea salt is mixed into a warm water. The bubbles and water currents gently massage and relax the body, whilst the salt detoxifies and cleans the skin.
The beer bath is well known from the Middle Ages for its rejuvenating and regenerating effects. The bath is enriched with hop and grain extracts, high in vitamin B and the foam generated from the bath helps to pamper and revive the skin. Natural almond oil results in the skin becoming silky soft and fresh. The uniqueness of this treatment is in the fragrance of the oil which is sweet, but with a pleasant slight bitter twang.
This treatment is carried out in a bath at the relaxing temperature of around 34 °C with Lavender Bath Salts brought directly from the Monastery of Pannonhalma, based on an ancient Hungarian recipe.
Lavender, grown on the slopes of the hill on which the Monastery stands is known for its relaxing and calming effects. During the treatment the dried lavender flowers float the water’s surface. The reason for the intense relaxation sensation experienced during the treatment comes from the essential Lavender oil, as its active ingredients are absorbed deeply into the skin, combined with the pleasant temperature of the water. The bath is effective for releasing tension in the muscles and tissues helping to relieve stress. This Aroma Bath with Lavender is generally recommended before a Lavender Oil Massage

The wellness mud pack is an excellent therapy for replenishing lost minerals from the body and cleaning out the pores of the skin. The warm mud is packed directly onto the skin and left for 20 minutes. During the treatment the capillaries enlarge letting in the small particles of mud that are washed away at the end of the treatment with any waste products from the skin. Because of the gentle heat and chemical components of the mud, it is a perfect therapy to combat stress, tiredness and nerve problems. The microelements of the mud also have a peeling effect, which removes dead skin, making it feel smooth and revived afterwards. The wellness mud pack is different to the traditional mud pack (See Packs: Mud Pack) in that the quality of the mud is smoother and it is applied at a lower temperature and a thinner layer.
This treatment begins with a dry brush massage (See Massage: Traditional Dry Brush Massage). This special massage uses stroking techniques applied in a special way to the skin, using a brush of half bristles. This action helps increase the blood circulation in the skin capillaries and removes from upper skin layer dead cells leaving the skin surface smooth and receptive. The body is then covered with a special cream containing whipped cream, honey and orange oil and wrapped. This cream wrap is left for 20 minutes whilst the nutrients from the honey and cream are absorbed into the skin. Following the rest, the non absorbed cream is massaged into the body.

At Danubius we operate our own brand of fitness clubs under the name of Danubius Premier (See: https://www.premierfitness.hu/en). These clubs offer fully equipped fitness centers with membership for outside guests. Each club has a wide range of strength and cardio equipment, pools and saunas and the latest trend in exercise classes (See: Exercise Classes). Friendly, multi-lingual staff are on hand to give advice and assist in devising fitness programs (See: Personal Fitness Consultation).

In each studio you will find a variety of professional cardio and strength equipment, enough to offer a full-body complete fitness workout.
Personal fitness training is different to a standard fitness consultation and advice. In a standard fitness consultation the instructor will carry out essential measurements, establish your goals and demonstrate the exercises. With personal training the trainer will carry out the same assessment and demonstration, but they will remain with the guest fully throughout the workouts. Personal training is especially appropriate for guests wanting to really develop their fitness potential or for guests who need professional motivation during their work out. We have various types of personal training to choose from: introductory fitness instruction (for beginners), cardio workout (for cardiovascular fitness or rehabilitation), stretch and mobility (for guests with mobility challenges), strength (to build or tone muscles), lower back and core strengthening exercises (for guests with back problems) and functional training. https://www.premierfitness.hu/en
This is a standard fitness exercise class encompassing a basic warm up mobilization and stretch, some cardio and toning exercises followed by a cool down and developmental stretching. All guests are advised to check with the doctor, or have fitness assessment with one of our fitness instructors before carrying out any fitness class. https://www.premierfitness.hu/en

Our swimming lessons are structured in the following way:
- Getting accustomed to the water
- Teaching basic swimming techniques
- Getting accustomed to deeper water
- Various swimming styles

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.
The word yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit, the language of ancient India where it originated – the union of mind, body and spirit. Many people think that yoga is stretching, but whilst stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating a balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through a series of poses, each of which has specific physical benefits. These poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement, or slowly to increase stamina and improve the alignment. In addition to these poses, yoga classes may include instruction on breathing or meditation.
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
