This massage technique was developed by our team of experienced technicians and physicians with the purpose of giving the body a toning and beneficial effect, ideal after thermal treatments or mud baths.
The wellness massage, thanks to manual massage skills such as kneading and friction, guarantees great benefits on the connective tissue, circulatory system and muscles. It gives elasticity to the body and a pleasant feeling of comfort and relaxation.
The Deep Tissue Method® Massage consists of a particular type of body massage that is extremely effective. Among its main effects, in addition to improving body posture, it reduces inflammation that causes pain and makes the connective tissue more elastic. It is a North American bodywork technique that uses the forearm, elbow and knuckles to massage and grant excellent results that are acknowledged scientifically.
This extraordinary method can reach areas otherwise difficult to reach with traditional massage techniques, thus relieving body tension and relaxing superficial and deep muscles.
High energy technique with deep action. Designed and developed by our team of physicians and physiotherapists, this intensive massage with a stress relieving effect on muscle structures is dedicated to those who are looking for a deep action aimed at releasing tension in muscle fibers and fascia.
It allows the muscles to relax and their stiffness (basic tension) to reduce through the mechanical action on proprioceptors, thus facilitating passive hyperemia. At the same time, it acts in a generalized way on the muscular fascia favoring its normal dynamics in non-pathological conditions.
At the end of the treatment, global myofascial stretching is performed in order to optimize joint mobility.
Created by the GB experts, this massage technique is designed to favor the circulation of both the blood and the lymph at the same time. The massage is performed slowly, with rhythmic movements and a medium depth which also allows the muscles to extend as much as possible. Excess toxins and fluids are removed, while elasticity and softness are restored to the skin.
Lymphatic Drainage is a massage technique that generates extraordinary draining effects. The massage itself is slow and delicate, specifically designed to counteract edema, swelling, lymphatic build-up and all other situations in which excess fluids need to be drained from the body.
Also excellent for headaches and dark circles under the eyes, it combines perfectly with all the GB aesthetic treatments, Thermal Mud treatments and controlled diet regimes.
The Vodder manual lymph drainage technique is ideal to fight edema and fluid retention in the tissues. It is also great to treat cellulite, post-surgery scars and in case of stress and PMS.
This technique began in the thirties and was created by the physiotherapist Emil Vodder who had been studying the lymphatic system for years. The Vodder manual technique is carried out with slow and superficial movements and with a light massage, enveloping and rhythmic, characterized by backwards pumping maneuvers.
The lightness of the massage is in fact the main characteristic of this treatment and is almost imperceptible, since its effect is directed to the superficial tissues and not to the muscles which instead require different, faster and decidedly deeper massages.
The pressure is thus usually very light and is varied depending on the various areas of the body or in presence of edemas, for this reason it is increased in the presence of lymphedema. The slowness is due to the need to adapt the massage to the speed of the lymphatic circulation, which is not as fast as blood circulation, while the "feather-light" pressure is used to avoid compressing the lymphatic vessels and to transport the lymph to the lymph nodes correctly.
The lymph node discharge maneuvers are deeper, since the goal of this technique is to empty our body from fluids, so the Vodder lymphatic drainage always starts from the neck. At the end of the treatment the swelling, due to fluid retention, diminishes visibly and you can feel a sensation of lightness in the areas treated and in general over the entire body.
If the light pressure and the slowness of the treatment do not fit the taste or needs of the person, this technique can be replaced with the haemolymphatic draining massage technique, more dynamic and faster, intended for both lymphatic and blood circulation.
With this massage, tension is dispersed, the mind relaxes and the body is reinvigorated. The relaxing action, especially on the cervical and lumbosacral regions of the body, makes this massage particularly suitable for those who must adopt a particular type of posture when at work.
The anti-stress massage favors deep relaxation, activating the production of natural “painkillers”, “anxiety suppressants” and “anti-depressants” and developing our ability to listen to the natural requirements of your mind and body.
A magical experience of unique and relaxing wellness. The hot and cold stone technique combines the pleasant feeling of warmth with the cool feeling of cold marble stones. The relaxing effect generated by vasodilation due to the heat combines with the stimulating effect of vasoconstriction induced by the cold effect, providing an effective and pleasant vascular exercise.
The movements are slow and rhythmic to enhance the feelings conveyed by the sliding of the stones on the body. An experience to be tried both in summer and winter for all those who wish to remove stress and worries and be immersed in the deepest feelings of relaxation.
Hot Stone Therapy consists of an enveloping massage carried out with hot stones that slide over the body to gently relax the muscles, through the action of heat, thus removing tension and stress from the body.
The origins of this technique come from the thousand-year-old Ayurvedic tradition and the Shamanic one of the Arizona-based Native Americans, who have been using for centuries basaltic stones capable of retaining and releasing heat. The warmth of the stones therefore bestows an immediate and beneficial effect of relaxation to body and mind.
