As an art of touch, creation is expressed in bodywork. Everyone has talents to share. We offer a variety of massages and therapies we have learned and practiced, mastered under the guidance of excellent instructors, and happy to share with you.
Many people see bodywork as the
most immediate and effective way of releasing the emotions and tensions stored
in the body, which first manifest as stiffness or pain and can later become a
source of illness.
There are different ways of doing bodywork. Based on our experience, these modalities we offer are highly effective in reaching the layers much deeper than just the physical level of the body. In bodywork we consider full presence, awareness and trust to be most important, both on the part of the therapist and the receiver. Also important is willingness to open up and desire to connect with the true nature that we all share – unconditional Love, pure state of Being.
MER massage (Myofascial Energetic Release)
Myofascial Energetic Release (M.E.R.) helps relieve pain and tension that has accumulated in the body recently or over a long period of time for various reasons. M.E.R. is a technique for energy release of connective tissue. It consists of a slow and deep stretch-based manipulation of connective and soft tissue, combined with joint release and breathwork techniques.
M.E.R. could be also called a technique of listening with hands. It allows the recipient to safely relax and thus release pain and tension from their body with conscious breathwork. As a result, the session could help release the emotional tensions stored in the body that are more difficult to deal with during an average massage session. Releasing emotional tension, in turn, makes it easier to release physical blockages which often manifest as pain in the specific areas of the body.
Because connective tissue stiffness often makes people feel as if their entire body or a particular area is covered with an inflexible armour which causes discomfort or pain when moving, people may feel relief and lightness after restoring the mobility of the connective tissue. The feeling of immobility, tension and pain caused by stiffness is reduced or completely eliminated; depending on the severity of the problem, it may take one or more sessions. Energy is released in connective and muscle tissue with slow, soothing massage after which a person may feel more energised and vital – as though their life energy was again flowing freely in their body like a powerful life-giving river.
The duration of one M.E.R. session with final relaxation is 1.5 to 2 hours. The price of the massage is EUR 50 per hour or donation of your choice.
Lomi Lomi Nui massage
Lomi Lomi Nui massage is a special Hawaiian style bodywork - deeply relaxing massage which helps the body to relax, recover and heal, brings peace of mind and harmony. Based on the ancient teachings of Hawaiian kahunas, the Lomi massage has also been called the art of healing that works wonders.
A full body massage with luscious warm oils works through all areas of the body with sensitive touches of different strengths. This massage is performed by alternating rhythmic, continuous long and fluid movements and gentle stretching. It releases tensions in muscles and joints, brings benefits to the lymphatic and circulatory system, strengthens the immune system and harmonises the energy centres. The deeply relaxing effect of Lomi lasts longer than just feeling relaxed after the session. Everything that your body is ready to let go will start moving. You only need to trust the wisdom of your body, and step by step, the tensions hidden deep under different layers are released and your life energy will be able to flow freely again.
The Lomi massage is indeed a special experience both as a one-time session and a series of sessions, going deeper and deeper every time. This massage can make you feel more rejuvenated and alive, restore your happiness by harmonising your body, soul and spirit, and instil a positive sense of being. A healthy mind in a healthy body!
The duration of one Lomi massage session with final relaxation is at least 2 hours, but it can last considerably longer if desired. The price of the massage is EUR 50 per hour or donation of your choice.
Craniosacral therapy (Biodynamic Craniosacral Resonance)
The term Craniosacral therapy consists of Latin words cranium (scull) and sacrum (sacral bone) and is a therapeutic form of bodywork that focuses on the physical, emotional and mental aspects of a person and is based on supporting the body’s own inner healing wisdom and strength through conscious touch.
The Biodynamic approach of Craniosacral Resonance therapy consists in the use of the healing effects of touch to awaken and support the body’s own internal healing system without adding anything external. Touch of a hand is the most ancient way of healing. A conscious, caring and selfless touch helps a person to relax and unwind, and reconnect directly with their body’s innate wisdom.
Craniosacral therapy is based on the experience and understanding that health is present in the body even in difficult physical or emotional conditions. From this perspective, health is not seen as the absence of disease, but as a manifestation of a universal creative and ordering principle called Primary Respiration or the Breath of Life, which has its own intelligence and wisdom.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Resonance therapy aims to listen to this inner intelligence and to support the inherent health in the human body, using the method of “listening with hands”: a conscious and attentive touch provided by gentle and specific hand positions. Therefore, the therapeutic approach is not doing something from the outside based on the practitioner’s judgment or action, but rather listening to and supporting the body’s innate wisdom or the Primary Respiration in its various manifestations, allowing the body to access its healing and restorative resources.
Craniosacral therapy is based on the idea that in a state of deep relaxation and trust, the human body has much easier access to its resources. It is a state of balance, inner peace and quiet, which has a deeply cleansing and restorative effect. It is a very respectful and non-intrusive approach, a holistic treatment, that preserves and respects your personal space and is also well suited for children and the elderly.
The session can be used simply for unwinding and relaxation as a preventive and prophylactic treatment, but also for dealing with specific pains or symptoms when recovering from an injury, for instance. If you wish to experience a Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy session, you are welcome to the therapy room. The duration of the session is approximately one hour and the price is EUR 50 euros per hour or donation of your choice.
Breath therapy (Biodynamic Breath & Trauma Release / BBTRS)
Our breath therapy, based on
Biodynamic Breath & Trauma Release System (BBTRS), is an efficient holistic method for releasing
tension on emotional, mental and body level. This
body-oriented healing approach uses breath as a main tool with
the help of many supporting elements - movement, touch, sound,
conscious emotional expression and meditation - to support trauma release
and healing on the somatic level. Biodynamic breathwork helps to heal trauma by
releasing core tension and supporting clients to complete arrested
trauma-related fight/flight or dissociated responses.
