Massage is an interesting and useful way to take care of yourself. This therapy combines techniques and methodologies that favor the general health of the person and also provides an immediate sense of relaxation. Massage can be a valuable component of wellbeing and health care for everyone.

Massages are particularly suitable in places that predispose to rest and relaxation. From hotels with mineral water, such as “Hissar”, to fitness centers, there are many different possibilities, where you can enjoy a real pleasure for the skin and the muscles of your body.

There are many different types of massages, but there are a few that have become the most popular. A good massage should provide both therapeutic and calming effects for the body. Below are brief descriptions of some of the types of massages you may like and try at the Spa Center of Hotel “Hissar”:

1. Swedish massage: Probably the most famous, this modern massage is based on the Western understanding of the physical structure and functioning of the body, unlike the more traditional focus on energy centers that refer to ancient Eastern teachings and practices. Long, sliding movements are the hallmark of this technique, along with five basic methods of increasing circulation.

2. Hot Volcanic Stones: More and more massage centers, popularize this technique, and appear everywhere. In this type of massage, the therapist warms the stones to an acceptable level and then places them on key areas of the body to relax the muscles. This is often used to enhance the benefits of the Swedish massage.

3. Deep tissue massage: This system of physical manipulation is directed to specific areas of the body to release the deep tension and stiffness. Strong pressure gradually encourages stiff muscles to relax and allows for better blood and oxygen flow to them. Although it is often compared to the Swedish massage, the deep tissue massage relies more on stronger pressure.
