Slow Stroke Massage

Slow Stroke Massage - What does it mean?

The ‘Slow Stroke Massage’ was introduced by Claudia Berg, a professional dancer and masseuse. The Slow Stroke Massage is a very slow and sensitive massage technique, during which the body gets pampered with warm oil for about an hour. With long and slow hand movements, big body parts are treated. The hands of the therapist stay on the body the whole time, the change from one massage technique to another is fluent. The empathy of the therapist plays a central role here.

  • Chronic tensions

  • Post-dramatic stress disorder

Studies from the years 1999-2002 even prove that the Slow Stroke Massage helps to fight depression.
