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.

Our Massages & Physiotherapy-Tips for youHealthy, healthier, vegetables
We all know that vegetables are healthy. Now, US scientists have discovered just how healthy they are and published a ranking. The winner is watercress, followed by Chinese cabbage, Swiss chard and beetroot. So do not shy away from a bigger variety on your plate.
Use rich and oily creams with hyaluronan or panthenol to hydrate your skin and provide it with everything it needs. Products that contain vitamin C or E help with dry skin. Hempseed oil is extremely good for your skin as well, due to its nurturing linoleic acid.
Admittedly this looks funny, but it works: tongue out, roll up slightly at the sides and inhale the next ten breaths through your mouth. This way, more oxygen is absorbed and the brain cells are "refreshed".
