Spa behandelingen

These treatments can be arranged separately from the tuition onsite:

Ayurvedic treatments

Ayurveda was developed more than 5000 years ago by highly spiritual beings and means the knowledge of life and longevity. The aim of all Ayurvedic treatments is to bring harmony and re-establish physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Treatments focus on the cause of problems to give permanent health solutions, rather than combating symptoms. The core of Ayurveda is massage using essential oils, natural herbs, and plants.


The beach resort offers different forms of massages, like ayurvedic massage, depending on the visiting specialist.


Reflexology is a relaxing treatment involving massaging of feet. It is based on the theory that for every part of the body, there is a corresponding reflex point in the foot. All the energy meridians are represented in the feet together with many nerve endings that relate to organs in the body.

Before the massage the patient’s feet are soaked in a foot bath with hot water and aromatherapy oils. By massaging the feet through a form of acupressure, deposits that block the body’s energy flow are broken up. Reflexology helps the body to regain its balance and contributes to good health.


Reiki literally means life force energy. It is a holistic healing method involving the laying of hands. Reiki restores energy channels, balances the chakra system, and eliminates toxins. It is an ancient treatment that was rediscovered in Japan in the 1920s.


Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing traditional Japanese healing art. It literally means "finger pressure" and is often referred to as a form of acupuncture without needles. Shiatsu is based on the principle that energy flows through the body through meridians. If the energy flow, ki or chi, is disrupted, then pain, irritations, anxiety, and emotional imbalances follow.

Through a combination of stretches, joint rotations, and gentle pressure, Shiatsu stimulates the body’s innate healing mechanisms. Regular therapeutic treatments can strengthen the immune system and lead to better health and well-being.
