Introduction

massage

Massage literally means “to knead”. The notion, however, contains a lot more than this. Massage puts two people in touch. Through touch they are brought into relation. A connection is formed.

This touch has the power of offering relief and comfort, liberating and appeasing the receiver. The power of touch is such that it can reach the deepest and most secret parts of our being. It has been proven that touch can release chemical substances in the nervous system that are called “endorphins”, which can neutralise pain and produce a deep sensation of well being.

Without doubt, one of the great benefits of massage is that it can offer the body the space it needs. Massage can be one of those moments in which reconciliation with one-self is possible.

Salvea massages are of great and guaranteed quality. They are given in the greatest respect of every one, guaranteeing your well being and improvement.

We are pleased to inform you that Salvea has inaugurated a new space in its center. From now on, it is possible for couples to receive their massage at the same time in the same room

We offer several types 30,45,60, 90 min or 120 minutes massages.

Plantar reflexology

massage réflexologie plantaire

Plantar reflexology is an energetic approach that aims to mobilize the body’s self- healing process by massaging reflex zones and points.

All the parts of our body are represented on the sole of our feet. At the same time stimulating and relaxing, reflexology is practiced by applying continued pressure with the thumb onto the feet’s reflex zones. The session starts with a relaxing massage on each foot that is followed by deep pressure work.

The deep relaxation generated by a reflexology treatment allows the body to let go and to react positively in the face of different external aggressions. After a session, one generally feels in great shape and experiences a profound feeling of well being.

Acupressure massage

L’acupressure-massage

When we feel a muscle is taut, we instinctively press on the affected area and the muscle relaxes. This is the basic principle of acupressure, one of the most ancient forms of treatment.

This art of touch was developed in China, in parallel with acupuncture. The points of muscle tension that we feel usually correspond to what are called in Chinese medicine as acu-points. These acu-points are like lock-gates. Using fingertip pressure, acupressure therapists are like lock-keepers who adjust the body’s “energy flow”.

This simple but effective technique has a beneficial effect on a range of different well-known physical ailments: headaches, dizziness, muscle tension, constipation, etc. Like all forms of massage, acupressure also acts on your emotional and mental state.

These pressure techniques make an acupressure massage a particularly effective way to combat stress.

Hot stones massage

aux pierres chaudes

For this traditional massage, we begin by applying warm oil onto your body. Then we alternate between placing pleasantly hot stones onto specific energetic zones and massaging your body both with the stones, as well as our hands and fore-arms, along the muscles, from feet to head. This massage brings warmth to the deepest muscle level, thereby causing muscle relaxation, the drainage and elimination of toxins and thereby improving and calming the nervous system.

It is ideal to alleviate muscular pain, stiffness and the “winter cold”.

This massage allows you to ground yourself, while harmonising your body and spirit.

With this massage, discover the softness of the stones and let yourself be filled with their warmth.

Pregnant woman massage

Massage femme enceinte:

Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful adventures in a woman’s life. With the passing months the baby grows and increasingly gains weight and space in the womb of the mother. Despite the joy of being a future mother, some inconveniences may accompany this state of happiness, such as stiffness and muscle aches, nausea and stress. This is why massage for a pregnant [S1] woman proves to be a very useful tool, in order to curb some of these minor symptoms and drawbacks.

A massage offers the future mother a moment of stillness and serenity that she can share with her baby, which is receptive to her state of mind. As a result, both can benefit from her well being.

Massage for pregnant women is practiced in a comfortable side position, in which a big cushion supports her body. It is much more gentle than a traditional massage, yet despite its gentle approach, this massage can release tense muscles and cramps linked to the increase of bodily weight during pregnancy and can relieve lower back tensions, as well as in the neck, legs. It amplifies the respiration, softens the skin and the muscular system. In addition, the deep relaxation it evokes contributes to an improved quality of sleep.

Massage can show the future mother a way of relaxing that helps her to maximise her respiratory capacity when giving birth. Because of the well being it provides, massage can also help the young mother, after having given birth, to settle back into her body (which facilitates the breast feeding) and be nourished, so that she in turn, can nourish her new-born.

It means taking a moment for her during a period in which she is highly in demand by the care and attention her new- born requires. It gives her an opportunity to receive, in order for her to be able to give again…

Seated massage

Le massage assis

Seated massage is an energetic form of massage that stems from traditional Thai massage (or from Amma in the Japanese tradition). It combines different pressure, kneading and rubbing, tapping and stretching techniques, which work on the acupuncture meridians (or points) in the back, shoulders and the head. It takes 15 to maximum 30 minutes and is practised fully dressed on an ergonomic chair. In this way, it has the advantage that it can easily be received and practised everywhere, as it does not require a particular moment of intimacy.

Seated massage activates the energetic, blood and lymphatic circulation, relieves pains and muscular stiffnesses, alleviates injuries caused by repetitive strain and allows you to let go of accumulated tensions and to combat stress in an efficient way.
