Traditional Thai massage

Thai massage is an ancient traditional healing system of tissue, muscle and joint mobilizations using body-weight letting, stretching, turning and moving, which is performed while fully clothed. Thai massage includes much more than the traditional massage because it involves rhythmic acupressure, reflexology, energy work and stretching, a form of passive yoga.

The giving of Thai massage is traditionally understood to be a physical application of Metta (loving kindness) and devoted masseurs still work in such a spirit today. Since Thai massage is performed on a mat on the floor and it works with your own body weight, it has beneficial effects for the practitioner as well.

About Crete

"Out in the dark blue sea there lies a land called Crete, a rich and lovely land, washed by the waves on every side",The Odyssey.

Crete is perhaps the most famous travel destination of Greece, especially among those who seek the traditional side of the Greek culture. Offering a unique and diverse landscape, a chance to come close to the local customs, native people with authentic hospitality and the Cretan cuisine, famous world wide for its taste and health benefits, Crete is a "must to explore" for the conscious travelers of today.

Although globalization, tourism and economic growth have inevitably changed the way of life in Crete, especially in the large urban centers, to a modern and cosmopolitan style, the Cretans still preserve the bonds with their rich folk traditions and cultural heritage. The Cretan dances are still danced at every opportunity and the "madinades" and the "rizitika" songs resound in every celebration. In the countryside many old Cretan men and women wear the traditional costume and the Cretan idiom is widely spoken even in the large cities.

There is an exceptional artistic production in traditional sectors such as pottery, embroidery, jewellery, etc and of course the very special Cretan Music. Arts and literature had always played a significant role in the life of the Cretan people. Famous painters like El Greco, Michael Damaskinos, writers like Nikos Kazantzakis, poets like Vincenzos Kornaros and Odysseas Elitis, composers like Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis and Giannis Markopoulos are Cretans or of Cretan origin. Today there are many important Cretans with significant contribution in all aspects of the cultural life in Greece.

Extra virgin olive oil, legumes and vegetables still constitute the base of the local cuisine as they have done for thousands of years and make the Cretan cuisine renowned worldwide for its benefits on longevity and good health.

Weather information:

The climate in Crete is temperate. The atmosphere can be quite humid, depending on the proximity to the sea. The winter is fairly mild and tolerable. Snow fall is practically unknown to the plains, but quite frequent in the mountains. During summer though, average temperatures are high. Probably the best time for a traveler to visit Crete is spring and autumn.
