    An increasing amount of people have been affected by locomotive disorders nowadays. Symptoms might come at a rather early age and we hardly ever come across a person without complaints. Swedish method makes the thermal massage unique. The masseur applies more powerful, dynamic movements, assesses the state of the muscles, touches on painful parts and taking all these into consideration works out a tailor made treatment. Due to the professional use of stroking, rubbing movements the effect of the massage is immediately felt, tension in the muscles, pain in the body is eased.

    • in times of increased physical load,
    • in the case of non inflamed arthritic pains and aching muscles,

    Royal thermal extra massage

    It is the therapeutic version of the royal thermal massage. Following the massage the masseur applies an extremely strong balm containing goat butter to the aching regions of the body in order to enhance the healing effect. By doing so the masseur also increases the painkilling effect of the massage.

The little violet flower creates harmony in man, its look and scent amazes everyone, refreshes, recreates and at the same time sets your mind at ease.
