What types of massage techniques do we offer?

Swedish massage

A technique discovered by Swiss Dr. Emil Kleen. The technique consists of five fundamental movements; effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), frictions (rubbing), tapotement (striking) and vibration that provide a deep relaxation and specific muscular work.

Esalen massage

Similar to Swedish massage this technique will adopt a slower moving and rhythmically approach that focuses on nurturing the receiver’s emotional self.

Californian massage

By its ample, fluid, engulfing and soft manoeuvres, Californian massage favours relaxation and a total harmonization of the whole being while generating a feeling of getting back to one’s inner self.

Deep Tissue massage

Deep tissue massage works on the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. It uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as "adhesions.")

Sports Massage

Designed for everyone but more often given to sports minded or physically active individuals.It relies on the therapist’s use of in-depth massaging techniques as well as stretching, mobilizations that favour in-depth muscular relaxation and improve recuperation after vigorous effort.

Thai massage

Based on stretching, pressures along the Thai (sen) energy flow lines, Thai Yoga uses the yoga postures. This massage reduces the body’s stiffness and tensions and helps revitalize the body as a whole. It is performed with the clothes on and does not require the client to be flexible to receive it. The receiver only has to abandon his or her body and the therapist will elevate the work for you.

Shiatsu massage

A therapeutic massage based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. Shiatsu uses pressure points and some stretching, and in return it will enhance the circulation of the body’s subtle energy in its meridians (energy channels) and recreate equilibrium. This massage is done on the floor or on a table with or without clothes. The technique is similar to acupuncture but without the application of needles

Acupressure massage

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese technique based on the principles of acupuncture and involves the use of finger pressure on specific points along the body. Acupressure is a way of accessing and releasing blocked or congested energy centers in the body. It stimulates and activates body’s own energies to help fight illness and restore harmony. Some of the acupressure points are significant as they relate to a specific part of the body while others are more general in their effect.

Reflexology massage

Reflexology is an Ancient Egyptian technique based on applying pressure on certain specific areas of the feet, hands, ears and head. Reflexology rebalances the vital energy of the body organs and glands. The overall health of contemporary human beings greatly benefits from this technique.

Pregnant woman massage (Prenatal massage)

The massage for pregnant women favours the development of the future mom and her baby by producing numerous benefits while relieving the body of the tensions caused by the pregnancy. This massage harmonizes the body, the mind and the spirit in a perfect balance both for the mother and her baby.

Duo massages (Massage for couple)

A duo massage is a massage treatment performed by two therapists in a perfect synchronicity. Duo massage treatment can take many massage forms and it offers relaxing and therapeutic benefits. You will enjoy this special moment with your loved one, inspiring closeness, while reminding to each other of the joy of sharing.

Siam Herbal Massage

This massage is performed with a body scrub made with fresh herbs (bolus). Combining the benefits of heat and the virtues of the medicinal plants used in the Thai tradition of body care and contained in the bolus, this treatment restores blood and lymph circulation eliminating deeply seated toxins and stress. The therapist also uses stretching and pressures on the sen energy flow lines, literally wrapping you in this massage. Out of respect for the purity of the care provided, we at Ambrosia make our own bolus for use with this really unique treatment. This treatment is ideal after giving birth since it eliminates any toxins accumulated in the process.

Hot-Stones Massage

A hot stone massage is done with the applications of lava stones on the body. Their applications and the heat that they generate will accelerate the process of relaxing the body muscles quicker and more in-depth; you will definitely be wrapped in a bed of wellbeing. This massage is a definite must during our long cold winters.

Kinesitherapy massage

Manual therapy which, by techniques of massage, mobilization and exercise prescription. It is designed to relieve muscle pain and to restore the mobility of joints. The analysis of posture and movement, performed during the first treatment and repeated as needed, allows the therapist to better identify the problem and act more efficiently and sustainably.

Lymphatic Drainage massage

This is a therapeutic massage technique applied through pumping and rhythmical pressure movements and by manipulations all along the lymphatic system. It eases lymph circulation and eliminates toxins.


Meaning universal vital energy, Reiki comes to us from a Japanese tradition and is an energy healing technique that rebalances the body’s energy fields. It refocuses the receiver placing him/her in a state of unconditional well-being.

Cranio Sacral massage

With its osteopathic roots, Cranio Sacral therapy helps determine and improve the functions of the craniosacral system through gentle manipulation that significantly reduces stress, harmonizing the body and its different systems.

Jin Shin Jytsu

The Jin Shin Jyutsu therapeutic touch, an ancient Japanese art, is based on the five elements philosophy. Astonishingly effective, the work of acupressure on the meridian grid reaches different levels of physical and energetic systems for an optimal health. It revitalizes the life force in balancing the emotions, soothing pain and addressing the root cause of chronic conditions. Jin Shin Jyutsu acts upon the debilitating effects of stress, anxiety and depression, for a deeper relaxation enabling regeneration and dynamism.

Jin Shin Jyutsu addresses a variety of conditions like allergies, migraine, digestive problems, menstrual pain, respiratory congestion, sport injuries, arthritis and joints pain, skin conditions, hormonal disharmony, fatigue, fertility as well as immune system weakness due to chemotherapy treatment. Jin Shin Jyutsu is effective for all the different physical systems together with the energetic, holographic and spiritual dimensions of the human body.

Chair massage

An adaptation of Swedish and/or shiatsu techniques, chair massage can be performed in the workplace, for an event or at Ambrosia. Chair massage tends to reduce stress, unwind tensions and bring about a state of well-being and quiet. It is done with the clothes on.

By practicing meditation people achieve an unconditional state of calm that ushers in peace, serenity and an incredible surge of energy awakening.

In Hatha Yoga, we use different movements (asanas) to harmonize the body by stretching all its muscles in a scientific and balanced way giving it an unprecedented surge of vital energy.
