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.

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.

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
