It’s the perfect anti-stress massage!
SWEDISH MASSAGE (60 OR 90 MIN.)
Perfect balance between toning and relaxation, the Swedish massage stimulates and strengthens the body while relaxing it.

Every movement – gentle to vigorous – is executed to suit your needs and act specifically on your muscles and joints. Whichever the lifestyle you lead, active or rather sedentary, the Swedish massage will provide you relaxation, energy and suppleness. No wonder it’s one of the most practiced massage in the western hemisphere!

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE (60 mins.)
Increasingly viewed as a therapeutic treatment in its own right, lymphatic drainage optimizes the flow of lymph through the body. This clear fluid associated with the lymph nodes is involved in several vital bodily functions, including cell detoxification, transport of fats, and immune system stimulation. This type of massage employs gentle, precise circular movements to alleviate water retention and its effects such as cellulite, stretch marks, inflammation, and migraines. Lymphatic drainage often produces sensations of newfound lightness and vitality.

HOT STONE MASSAGE (90 mins.)
This massage combines a firm touch with the gentleness of warm volcanic stones. The stones soothe muscles and expel tension from nerve endings. This long 90-minute massage induces a deep state of relaxation.
