Honey massage  -  natural detox

Already the old Egyptians knew about the healing effects of honey and also women from the orient used honey as a beauty product ever since. But the origins of the honey massage are however rooted in Tibet and Russia.

Honey massages count as natural medicine, which can be used in form of a healing massage, for therapeutic purposes and for detoxing. Honey massages are connective tissue and fasciae treatments. The massage is applied with the help of plucking and drawing techniques. Plucking and drawing promotes the blood circulation. Also, dead skin cells come of. The whole organism gets detoxified and strengthened and it is also said that energy blockades dissolve.

Mostly, the back area to shoulder area is treated with a honey massage. But also cellulites on thighs can be effectively treated with honey.

During a honey massage the honey unfolds its effect as a natural antiseptic, vitamin source and healing catalyst. While applying the honey on the skin it changes its colour and consistency and gives information about the effect and the constitution of the guest.

A honey massage works:

  • analgesic: when it comes to arthrosis and rheumatic diseases
  • dissolves tensions: in the shoulder and back area
  • stimulates blood circulation and
  • strengthens the cardio vascular system.
