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 special massage uses stroking techniques, applied in a special technique to the skin using a brush of half bristles. This action helps increase blood circulation in the skin and removes dead cells from the upper skin layer. This leaves the skin surface smooth and receptive for other treatments. It is therefore often used as a preparation treatment for some packs (See Further relaxation treatments: Aphrodite Pack). Owing also to its effect as a metabolism stimulator, it can be used as part of a detoxification or anti-cellulite treatment.
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.
Shiatsu is an old, traditional Japanese healing method which is carried out on the floor in loose clothing. (Shiatsu in Japanese means ‘finger pressure’). Unlike the massages of the West that focus on kneading and friction, pressure and stretching are the techniques used in Shiatsu. The masseur uses palms, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, elbows, knees and feet on the body’s acupuncture points along what are considered the body’s meridians or energy channels. In Shiatsu, it is believed that disease is a result of blocked or unbalanced energy in these channels, and the pressure applied in the massage helps to release it. Shiatsu massages are effective in treating many conditions, particularly respiratory and digestive problems, as well as headaches.
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.
This unique treatment is carried out utilising the positive effects of suction through a specially-designed rubber cup. The cup is gently pressed down onto the skin, and when slightly released produces a naturally-pressurised vacuum effect. The skin is then lubricated with oil through soft massage techniques. The cup is pressed down onto the skin and directed in circular movements across the hip, waist, back and shoulders. As well as relaxing the body, this treatment is especially effective for stimulating blood circulation.
The treatment begins with a special body scrub followed by a shower, during which a chocolate-almond massage oil is heated to a warm temperature. This delicious combination is applied all over the body and left to absorb for 20 minutes. This is washed off in a second shower. The final phase of the treatment is a mouth watering chocolate lotion that is rubbed into the skin. This unique mixture of chocolate and almond oil not only revitalizes the skin and replaces lost nutrients, but also has a positive, uplifting effect on your state of mind.
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.
This treatment is recommended for spine problems, neck, shoulder, backache, rheumatism and joint inflammation. In addition it helps relieve any tightness and improves the elasticity of the skin.
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.
This is a body shaping massage in which the fat cells in the connective tissue under the skin are broken down by a special powerful massage technique using ivy essences. Because this is a very intensive massage, minor bleeding can occur under the skin’s surface as a side effect. For this reason sufficient fluid intake is recommended after the massage to help flush out the toxins from the body which are released during the treatment. Due to the intensity of this treatment it is not recommended for the over 60’s and guests with varicose vein problems. The combination of the powerful massage technique and Ivy Essence reduce the appearance of cellulite, in addition to hydrating and strengthening the skin.
The dry water massage “Hydrojet” is a mechanical massage on the bed called the Wellsystem Medical. Lying on the bed a high powered jet moves, under a canvas sheet up and down the body giving an intense massage. This improves the overall circulation and reduces muscle tension. It also helps reduce the level of toxins in the muscles and contributes to faster regeneration. It increases endorphins, improves mental well-being and helps to increase joint mobility and flexibility. Because the massage is conducted on a dry bed, it is not necessary to get undressed.

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.

Joseph Pilates developed his concept in England whilst interred during the First World War, basing his principles on yoga and Tai Chi (See: Yoga, Tai Chi). Whilst working in a hospital he began devising equipment to rehabilitate his patients, taking springs from beds and rigging them to create resistance. Pilates is mainly taught on a mat, sometimes using specialist equipment that has changed little from the original hospital bedsprings. Practiced faithfully Pilates yields numerous benefits, including increased lung capacity, strength, flexibility, posture and balance. The balance and control taught in Pilates helps in all areas of ones life. His methods are so successful that all types of people now use them from ballet dancers to rugby players.
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
Tai Chi, as it is practiced in the West today, is a combination of a moving form of yoga and meditation. In Tai Chi there are a number of so-called ‘forms’, (also called ‘sets’) which consist of a number of movements. Many of these movements were originally derived from martial arts and from the natural movements of animals and birds. Thesemovements are performed slowly and gracefully, with smooth, even, transitions between them. In Chinese philosophy and medicine there exists the concept of ‘chi’, a vital force that animates the body. The aim of Tai Chi is to foster the circulation of this ‘chi’ within the body to enhance health and vitality. Another aim is to develop a calm and tranquil mind focused through the precise execution Tai Chi exercises.
