On request you can book a Shiatsu massage provided by Marie-Claire. Shiatsu massage is a Japanese type of bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (read more about this below). The focus of the massage is on the stimulation of the free flow of blood and energy in the meridians, muscles, joints and connective tissue.
A Shiatsu massage is nourishing for body, mind and soul: afterwards your battery is recharged again and you’ll feel super relaxed. The massage takes place on a futon, which is a thin type of mattress. During the treatment you wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothes. The costs for a 45 minute Shiatsu massage are 35 euros.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic and integrated health system and philosophy it hits roots in ancient China. TCM already exists for over 3000 years, but that doesn’t make it less relevant today. In TCM, the human body, mind and soul are considered one. Human beings interact with their environment, such as nature, the climate and other human beings. We affect our environment and are being affected by it. The underlying assumption of TCM therefore is that if we as human beings live in harmony with ourselves and with our environment, our health and wellbeing will become increasingly better.
