Massages in the wellness hotel
Lie on a comfortable lounger in the spa area, listen to relaxing music and enjoy a soothing massage: For many there is nothing more wonderful. A feel-good massage pampers all your senses. Soft or strong touches during the massage ensure holistic relaxation, because the massage reduces accumulated stress.
Through the soothing touch during a massage the body releases the hormone oxytocin, which reduces the stress hormone cortisol. This improves the inner imbalance and a warm feeling of well-being is achieved. Soothing or activating, relaxing or stimulating: massages have different effects on the body and are definitely beneficial.
Types of massages
Massages are the most popular spa treatments for guests at the wellness hotel. No wonder, because a wide range of different massage types and techniques ensures that every guest finds one that suits him or her.
In general, massages are techniques in which a masseur applies pressure and tensile stimuli to the guest's skin with his hands or aids. The various aids include oils, herbs and stones, but also balls and brushes. While some people treat themselves to a feel-good massage now and then to relax, for others massages are a medical necessity. A distinction can be made between the types of massage:
With feel-good massages, the focus is on the well-being and relaxation of the person being massaged. The gentle touch, the pressure of the hands and various aids make a massage a very individual relaxation experience. The focus here is on the guest and his or her needs, which often include relaxation from everyday life or the reduction of stress.
Sports massages have a focus on the physical performance of an athlete. The aim is to prepare for sporting activities or to loosen the muscles after the physical activity, which facilitates regeneration.
Medical massages take place to help the body regenerate after an injury. They are often prescribed by a doctor for this reason. Massages of a medical nature include, among other things, the setting of vertebrae or the release of blockages and tension. For this reason, the people being massaged often do not find this type of massage relaxing, but only consider the result of the massage to be an improvement in their well-being.
In addition to classic massages, wellness hoteliers offer a wide range of massages in their spas.

Listening to music activates the happy hormone dopamine, which has a positive effect on the brain similar to the one of psychotropic drugs or good food. Therefore, you should listen to your favorite music whenever and wherever you can!
