Indian healing massages with warm herbal oil
The sensual and deeply relaxing treatments can include the ayurvedic techniques of full-body or partial-body massages with oils, herbal powders or silk gloves that are adapted to the type of person, as individual or synchronous massages, each of which is based on the determination of the body constitution. We currently offer the following types of Ayurvedic treatments:
Abhyanga Massage: Abhyanga, also known in the Western world as "The Great (Ayurvedic) Oiling", is a form of Ayurvedic massage. It is usually performed with heated vegetable oil, but can also be done with teas or other substances. Although Abhyanga is also used in medical treatments, for example to introduce herbal extracts into the body, it is mainly a component of Dinacarya Adhyaya (recommendations for daily living), i.e. of so-called wellness treatments.
Ayurvedic Massages can help with the following complaints:
Diseases of the rheumatic form
Holistic oil massage with long, connecting strokes
The Esalen Massage is known for its long lasting stroking touches and stretching movements that are performed over the length of the whole body. Light flexing, passive joint movements and deep structural work on the muscles and fasciae, together with the energetic balancing of the body, are part of the massage.
The basics of Esalen Massages are the techniques of the Swedish and classical massage and the practices of Sensory Awareness which have been combined to a new form of bodywork. Overall, however, Esalen Massage is more a state of mind or attitude than a specific technique. The ideas of Gestalt Therapy, according to which a person’s body, mind and feelings are not to be seen separately from each other, but rather form a unity, are decisive in this context. The aim of Esalen Massage is to help the patient to consciously perceive this unity of body and mind through bodywork. Through the feeling of wholeness, new levels of consciousness are to be opened up and the self-healing powers of the body are to be stimulated.
Like any other form of massage, Esalen Massage has a direct effect on the organism: the muscles are loosened, the blood circulation is increased and the immune system, metabolism and the lymphatic system are stimulated.
In addition, the practitioners, as the Esalen therapists call themselves, also work on the psychological level: they try to feel into the patient, to establish a connection to his inner being, to his thoughts and feelings. Through the slow, sensitive movements of the massage, a process of “letting go” is stimulated in the patient, which leads to a deep sense of well-being.
Activation and regulation of energy flow
Shiatsu is practiced in comfortable clothing on a futon (Japanese mat) on the floor. Before the treatment, a short conversation takes place, from which the individual treatment will be tailored to your needs. The treatment usually takes place in silence – this way you can consciously feel inside yourself and follow what happens during the treatment. The relaxing and focussed touch has a deep effect, reaching and dissolving the entrenched, often painful patterns of the client.
Shiatsu can be used preventively as well as for acute or chronic diseases. An improvement is usually already noticeable after the first session. Shiatsu can also take place as a series of several treatments or as a longer lasting life support. The frequency and intervals between the treatments depend on the client’s concerns and symptoms.
Shiatsu Therapy can help with the following complaints:
Back pain and tension
Neck and shoulder pain
Lack of energy, exhaustion and burnout
Shiatsu can also be supportive and beneficial during pregnancy and after giving birth and can help with pregnancy-specific problems. However, it is recommended to start the treatments only after the third month of pregnancy.

Shiatsu was developed in Japan and has its roots in the healing system of the traditional Chinese medicine. Literally translated Shiatsu means "finger pressure", but it is more a sinking in than the exertion of pressure. Historically Shiatsu is based on the medical massage "Tuina" which was one of the pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Others were nutrition, moxibustion and acupuncture as well as the administration of medicines, often based on herbs. In Japan the traditional knowledge of energy points was used and tuina continued to develop. Shizuto Masunaga brought Shiatsu to the West, he extended the traditional meridian courses (energy points also known in acupuncture) and found that a flowing treatment of these meridians could restore and stimulate the flow of energy. Techniques of Western medicine, especially from physiotherapy or chiropractic, osteopathy and other methods have since then had an influence on today's Shiatsu.
Rediscover lightness, grounding and upright walking
The Trager work is rather an approach, an approach to people and their problems than a method that is learned through facts, techniques and symptoms. The uniqueness of each person is respected and appreciated. The practitioner directly feels the body tissue and its individual response. The fundamental question in every touch, every gesture and every word is: What would be lighter, freer, softer? By asking ourselves this question, we connect with the power of life and experience its inherent possibility for self-regulation and transformation. Trager work happens unintentionally from this deep connection with the source of being.
Trager Therapy can help with the following complaints:
All types of movement restrictions
Slipped discs (also preventive)
RSI (tennis arm, computer mouse arm)
Abdominal and tension headaches
Nervousness and nervous restlessness
Stress, tiredness and fatigue
Supporting self-regulation through the body's own structures and rhythms
During craniosacral therapy you lie on a massage table in comfortable clothing. The therapist will find out in a conversation at the beginning what your concerns are and where your resources lie. In mindful bodywork, these encounters take place with the greatest care and freedom from values. During the treatment, the therapist follows the subtle inner movements in the recipient’s body. Blockages, injuries and traumatic memories can thus be released on different levels of the body.
The origins of craniosacral therapy lie in the observation of Dr. W. Sutherland around 1900, who established a mobility of the individual cranial bones. His clinical experience also showed that rhythmic pulsations of the cerebrospinal fluid are transferred to the external tissue structures of the human body and thus become palpable.
Craniosacral Therapy can help with the following complaints:
Support in stressful life situations
Rehabilitation after illness or accident
Skidding, fall and compression trauma
Regulation for the locomotor system, the organs, the lymphatic system, the hormone system, the autonomic and central nervous system
Sleep problems, exhaustion, depression, stress-related complaints, burnout syndrome
Disorders of the immune system
Pregnancy and birth support
Hyperactivity of children, concentration disorders and learning difficulties
Developmental delays in children
Accompanying with additional medical care:
Headaches and migraines
Sinusitis and tinnitus
Spinal, muscle and joint diseases
Asthma, allergies and skin diseases
Changes in the area of the brain and spinal cord

Removal of pathogenic substances from the colon
The lifestyle of many people in the West demands a lot from the intestines and can damage the intestinal flora. Refined sugars, alcohol, products made from white flour, ready meals, fried foods and fast food put a strain on our digestion and change the bacterial culture resident in the intestine. This bacterial culture is important for a healthy intestinal flora and crucial for human health – because the intestine is considered the most important instance of the immune system. Other important factors are stress, environmental pollution and medication.
As a result, detoxification is increasingly impaired, the intestine becomes sluggish and waste products and residues accumulate. The consequences are typical side effects of the western lifestyle: loss of vitality, fatigue, depression, lack of concentration, tendency to infections, constipation, breathing and even sleep disorders. Skin complaints such as inflammation and acne often have their origin in the intestines. Indirectly, a sick or strained intestine also favours circulatory disorders such as high blood pressure, migraine and cardiovascular problems.
Colon Hydrotherapy starts with the intestine itself. The aim is to free it from waste products, toxins and deposits. The entire colon is treated, in contrast to conventional enemas. By means of a tube, warm, filtered water is inserted into the rectum at low pressure so that residues can dissolve and be flushed out. Subsequently, the water is discharged through a drainage tube. This therapy causes waste products and putrefactive substances to be dissolved and eliminated from the intestines. This relieves and cleanses the intestine, which improves detoxification and stimulates intestinal activity in general. The cleansing process with water is accompanied by a stomach massage. Colon hydrotherapy develops its positive effect on stool regulation far beyond the treatment.
If the above description should scare you off, rest assured that Colon Hydrotherapy is perceived as pleasant by most people. The patient lies relaxed on the treatment table and indulges in the gentle massage of the abdomen. The temperature of the water is of course adapted to the patient’s feelings. The system is self-contained and the treatment is completely clean.
On the day of the colon hydrotherapy raw food (salads and fruits) should be avoided. Steamed vegetables with cereals (rice, millet, quinoa, etc.) or potatoes are suitable. After the therapy it is advisable to stay on the toilet for a few minutes. It can also be helpful to take a few steps up and down to promote complete bowel movement. To balance the fluid balance, we recommend water, tea or bouillon.
Colon Hydrotherapy can help with the following complaints:
Various intestinal and abdominal irritations
Constipation or diarrhea, food allergies
Constipation, irritable bowel, hemorrhoids
Intestinal inflammation including diverticulitis, colitis and Crohn's disease
Defecation during fasting cures
Skin diseases (e.g. acne, eczema, neurodermatitis, fungal diseases)
Rheumatic diseases (e.g. joint rheumatism, chronic back problems and lumbago, hyperacidity)
Neurological disorders (chronic headaches, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, meteorosensitivity, neuralgia, chronic vegetative disorders, including cardiac arrhythmia, lung problems, respiratory problems, asthma, allergies, food intolerances)
Colon Hydrotherapy treatments are only available during certain time periods. Please enquire about the time options.
