Massage is one of the most ancient healing procedures. It was used by the Egyptians, Chinese, Malaysians, Japanese, native method in India. There are records from the Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes, Persians, ancient Greek and Roman healers. It was used in different ages, according to different religions and rituals. Today countless ways and varieties are known, learnable and applicable. It has several lines based on different philosophical foundations (European Swedish massage, Oriental trends -Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Indian-ayurvedic, Polynesian-Ma-Uri).

However, one important thing is common in all of these styles: the power of touch has a healing effect. That is why I recommend it to Everyone, regardless of age, gender or profession.

Some general physiological effects of massage

  • improves blood circulation - release of histamine, bradykinin
  • local improvement of lymphatic circulation
  • increase selection
  • pain relief
  • immune system booster
  • especially important for athletes; warming up before activity, refreshment after activity, relaxation, elimination of feeling tired, prevention of muscle cramps (I also do sports - muay thai, yoga and running, so I can attest to this by experiencing it on my own skin.)
  • breaking the vicious cycle of pain-spasm-pain
  • improvement of local circulation of tissues - skin regeneration
  • tissue oxygenation and metabolism enhancement
  • normalization of muscle tone, resolution of cramps
  • tissue mobilization - mobilization of muscle bandages, dissolution of scars, adhesions
  • reduction of edema
  • has a reflexive effect on the functioning of the internal organs
  • helps in the treatment of rheumatological, orthopedic, neurological and psychosomatic diseases
  • improving the general condition of the organization
  • therapeutic purpose
  • stress relief, stress management - stimulation of sensory nerve endings, sedation

However, I would like to highlight one more thing; this is prevention! Unfortunately, in western culture and medicine, the focus is not on prevention, but on firefighting. (Eastern people, on the other hand, focus on prevention.) Troubles and degenerative changes can be avoided. Massage is also a helpful tool for this.

Cupping

It is basically an ancient technique. Vacuum therapy. It is a very strong local circulation repair and metabolism stimulating method. In the treated area, the traction causes the capillaries to dilate, allowing fresh blood to flow in and more oxygen to flow through the connective tissue evenly. It helps to break down and remove waste products deposited in the skin (they can be felt as painful lumps). It increases the formation of white blood cells, stimulates the immune system. It reduces pain. By stimulating the nerve endings, the function of various internal organs can be stimulated, and convulsions can be resolved.

Treatments

I love combined treatments. One of my favorite is the combination of cupping + massage. I can currently provide the following treatments (my goal is to continuously acquire even more knowledge and expand my services for even more complex treatments):

  • Massages: Swedish, relaxing aromatherapy, refreshing, pre-workout warm-up, post-workout regenerating, honey-detox back massage
  • Mud-packing - with mud from Kolop
  • Cellulite treatment
  • Cupping
  • Kinesio tape
  • Soft forging

The duration of the treatments can be 30/60/90/120 minutes. With much love. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Hello! I work as a manual therapist with a holistic approach in the wellness department of SuperGym.

I believe that every touch ˙ (both positive and negative) has Power, Effect, and Consequence. To our Soul, Our Mind, and Our Body as well. The human body is made up of about 100 trillion different cells. Each is a tiny wonderland in which thousands of chemical processes take place in every single moment independently of us. Everything is connected to everything in our body.

Many people just use their own body. They are exhausted indefinitely, without thinking about the damage done and the consequences. But just think about… what happens? You have probably felt, at work, in a relationship, in sports… that you give in everything, give your maximum, and still “you don’t get anything back”. Sooner or later you get tired, burn out, give up. Well… that’s exactly what happens to your body, unless you use it, but never refill it.

We have many options to give. For example, by eating healthily, doing sports, drinking enough water (the “food” of our cells is water!), Paying attention to our posture, resting enough, stressing less, being with good people, loving, touching…etc.

And we can also refill our body and soul with massage.
