Ancient Greek Massage® is a healing technique that is based on techniques supported by Hippocrates, the father of medicine. Hippocrate’s techniques were applied in wrestling schools in ancient Greece, in gyms by pedotribes (coaches in ancient greek palestras) and to patients in Asklipias that operated as healing centers. It is a healing that releases stress offering a deep sense of relaxation and wellness and at the same time brings us close to the ancient greek thought.
It combines “dry massage” with pressure and movement, following the brush that reinforces blood circulation to the back. Afterwards hot oil is applied with essential oils that is followed by a special massage using a unique suction method. The oil is removed by a wooden scraper the ”curry comb”. The treatment is completed with the “sadness rubbing” which is virtually a head massage during which the emission of “serotonin” is increased and the “cortisol” is decreased thus releasing sadness.
A unique holistic healing is recommended to anyone who desires to revitalize body and soul, to be lightened and to give himself a journey back to ancient Greece.
For the massage-by-hand processed virgin olive is used with the traditional way of cold pressing in combination with essential oils.
