Massage means the exchange of touch between the hands and body, such as the head, hands and feet. The centerpiece of the massage is touch, however, a good massage not only soothes the skin, but goes even deeper, into the muscles and bones.
The massage is one of the oldest and simplest treatments. Especially in the East, there is a widespread belief that regular massage benefits all people, regardless of age. In the West, the usefulness of massage has always been recognized in the field of sports, and later its use has moved to other areas.
The massage is stimulating or resting, depending on the depth and speed of the massage. It relieves tension, suppresses insomnia and relaxes sore muscles, so it provides well-being. Some are convinced that the mere pleasure of a massage has a healing effect.
Massage has many benefits. Its advantage is that it is comfortable to massage and to be massaged. It is not difficult to learn it. Massage is supposed to be something that everyone should instinctively do. When we get a headache, we massage the forehead; if we want to comfort a child, we pat him on the head, take his friend’s hand and comfort him.
We carry out classical, therapeutic, sports and tui-na massages. You can also decide for partial 30 min. massages, where your back or feet or legs are massaged. In classic, therapeutic and sports massages, we focus primarily on improving blood flow and lymph flow in the ligaments and muscles. Individual types of massage differ from each other mainly in their intensity on a certain part of the body and the purpose that we want to achieve with the massage. We advise you to look at each type of massage and decide on the one that is closest to your needs.
In our Wellness Center we provide:

Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine that originates from India and is also practiced in other parts of the world as a form of complementary and alternative medicine. The word Ayurveda in Sanskrit is made up of the word “āyus” which means “life” and “veda” meaning “knowledge” or “science”. Ayurveda, or in translation, knowledge of life covers four aspects of man: soul, mind, emotion, and body. This means treating the whole person holistically, teaching him how to live in harmony with nature and helping him to live a healthy life. It covers all aspects of health by promoting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. It explains how our thoughts, diet and lifestyle affect our physical condition.
Ayurveda and Disease: According to the Indian Ayurvedic physicians, every physical change first begins in consciousness, and only manifests itself at the physical level afterwards. On this basis, they have developed a program based on four pillars:
- body and breathing exercises that strengthen the body, balance the mind and strengthen the awareness of the soul;
- a diet that strengthens the body and manages stress;
- eliminating toxins from the body;
- meditation that fosters spiritual awareness and unleashes creative potential.
Ayurveda therefore assumes three main causes of the disease:
- misidentification of intellect with “I” and “mine”
- abuse of the human senses in the direction of pleasure, desire, greed and selfishness
- maladaptation to seasonal changes in nature causing stress, weakening of the digestive fire and imbalance in doshas
The so-called Shamana therapy is used to eliminate the symptoms and Shodana therapy is used to eliminate the causes of the disease.
Many scientific articles confirm the effectiveness of Ayurvedic treatment and talk about the use of Ayurveda in health systems. Recently, auguripid has also been contributed by gugulipid, a compound from Commiphora mucules that successfully inhibits angiogenesis in vitro and in vivo. The hepatoprotective action of the ethanolic extract of Zanthoxylum armatum, the antihyperglycemic and antioxidant activity of the multi-plant Ayurvedic preparation Dihar and the neuroprotective action of various Ayurvedic medicines have also been demonstrated. Ayurveda has been contributed to modern medicine by reserpine, an active substance from the Rauwolfia serpentina plant, which is used today in India to safely control blood pressure. Research shows that Arjuna is terminally useful in reducing pain in angina, in the treatment of heart failure and coronary artery disease. Terminalia may also be useful in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. There is also evidence that sage (Salvia Officinalis) can improve symptoms in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Azadirachta indica (believed to have immunoprotective properties) was found to increase interleukin 2 (IL-2) production over a three-week period and increase the immune response in volunteers by promoting lymphocytes and T-cells. A mixture of black pepper, long pepper and ginger is used in Ayurveda to form a traditional trick mixture. This mixture increases appetite, stimulates the secretion of digestive juices and cures stomach problems, especially chlorhydria and hypochlorhydria.
The human mind is constantly active due to the demands of modern times, which is why the mind becomes superficial, embedded in everyday life and unable to utilize the rich physical, mental and emotional resources hidden in man. Ayurveda is therefore inextricably linked to meditation, relaxation, yoga and breathing techniques. Yoga, like Ayurveda, is an ancient science in the Vedic tradition of India. Ayurveda is the Vedic science of healing the mind and body, and yoga is the Vedic science of self-knowledge of man, based on the health of the body and mind.
They have been developed and used together over the millennia and represent far more than just physical exercises and body healing, as has often been presented in the West, but they attach great importance to a person with the potential to develop a higher consciousness, consciousness of love, understanding and responsibility to society and nature. The so-called yogi is a man of discipline, compassion and nonviolence, his duty is to be the protector of all beings and nature. In accordance with the principle of nonviolence or ahimsa, yoga advocates a full-fledged lacto-vegetarian diet, with ayurvedic contribution to its diet as well. Yoga is originally passed on only from the teacher to the student, who is willing to accept higher wisdom and knowledge. As a discipline, yoga encompasses physical exercises or asanas, ethical disciplines, techniques for controlling breathing and the senses, and meditation. There are five different paths of yoga:
- Raja Yoga: It encompasses all the techniques of dicipline in order to gain complete control over the operations of the human mind or vritia.
- Bhakti Yoga: The Path of Devotion or Seeking Higher Consciousness through the Heart with Ancient Indian Rituals, Songs and Meditations
- Karma Yoga: The Path of Service and Activity to Raise Humanity to a Higher Level of Understanding of Interconnectivity
- Kriya Yoga: Including Hatha Yoga includes the physical exercises, breathing and relaxation techniques prescribed for which illnesses and problems to practice, which organs to work on, and contraindications. These techniques are being extensively tested worldwide in randomized clinical studies and research assignments in patients with a variety of problems such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, post-traumatic stress, and in pregnant women and children. The vast majority of studies have shown greater efficacy than placebo and currently used complementary therapies and even possibly greater efficacy than drug treatment alone, e.g. spinal pain.
- Jnana Yoga: The Path of Searching for Wisdom about Man, Nature and the Universe through Inner Thought and Self-Observation. This path is intended for the rare aspirants, who are mostly Pitta types, according to Ayurveda, as they have a great capacity for concentrating the mind and determined insight into themselves.
Aromatherapy is one form of medicine that uses volatile liquid vegetable substances known as essential oils and other aromatic components of plants. Its purpose is to influence human health and well-being. Today, aromatherapy is divided into four groups: medical aromatherapy, popular and esoteric aromatherapy, holistic aromatherapy and scientific fragrance research. The most holistic approach to healing is used, which means that it not only treats the symptoms but the overall physical condition – the body and soul as a whole. These include instructions for healthy lifestyles, eating, and physical and other health promotion activities. In aromatherapy, the disease signs are the result of a broken energy balance, and treatment with essential oils helps the patient’s body trying to heal itself. The aromatherapist seeks to identify the true causes of the disease with a holistic approach and to correct them by choosing the right combination of essential oils.
Aromatherapy is a natural method designed to protect health, beauty and wellness. The essential tools used in aromatherapy are essential oils.
Essential oils are fragrant plant extracts (extracts). They are obtained from different parts of plants by the processes of distillation, extraction or compression. They are used in small quantities and in a controlled manner. Although they are called oils, they are greasy. Essential oils are insoluble in water but soluble in oil. Prior to application to the skin, they are always diluted in one of the natural media (honey, vegetable oil, soy cream,…).
Essentials: essential oils, vegetable oils, salt, polenta …
The most common medium used with essential oils (and of course melts) are vegetable oils. A typical example of vegetable oil is olive oil. For the oils used in aromatherapy, it is important that they are unrefined and cold pressed. The only combination of real essential oils.
