Little ABC for your spa-break questions ...

In their treatment discriptions, wellness hotels often use technical terms, which are hard to understand for potential guests. We have therefore collected and defined the most relevant terms in our small wellness ABC. A tip: Our wellness dictionary also supports word requests. You don't need to know the exact wording.


Pizzichilli - What is meant by it?

Pizzichilli, also known as royal icing, an Ayurvedic treatment, is an oil-casting massage and heat combination that serves both for deep relaxation and for the elimination of waste products and toxins. A full body massage with warmed oil is followed by an oil cast, whereby the oil is massaged in with gentle stroking movements. The temperature of the oil is raised to max. 45 °C during the treatment. The body is intensively warmed up and detoxification is stimulated. Pizzichilli has a beneficial effect on joint problems.
