Massages & Reflexology

With all my massage & reflexology treatments, we first discuss your concerns. I will then work with you to choose the right treatment. This includes choosing the oil and fragrance that your nose likes. I work with high-quality, all-natural essential oils in organic quality from the Swiss manufacturer Damascena. I have completed several further training courses in aromatherapy with this company and will be happy to advise you on how essential oils can support you in your concerns.

As a medical masseuse with a federal certificate of competence, my treatments are covered 70-90% by supplementary insurance. (depending on your insurance policy)

Massage has been known in a simple form since the earliest times. Written evidence of its use in ancient China dates back to 3000 BC, and the ancient Egyptians appreciated its beneficial effects, as did the Japanese. In the West, massage was closely linked to the highly developed bathing culture of the Greeks and especially the Romans. The famous Greek physician Galen (129 to 199), personal physician to Emperor Marcus Aurelius, was the first to assign massage a scientifically recognized status as a treatment method.

Massage is therefore one of the oldest remedies known to mankind. Franz Kirchberg formulated this in his book as follows: “Just as every person instinctively rubs or presses a swollen and therefore painful or bruised area of their body in an attempt to reduce the pain caused by the tension, this instinctive means will probably have been used as a remedy at all times.”

Meridian massage

The principles of meridian massage are based on traditional Chinese acupuncture. It is an energetic form of therapy, which means that the organism is harmonized and brought into balance via the life energy. According to classical Chinese medicine, life energy is superior to all physical and mental experiences. Therefore, every illness represents a blockage or imbalance in the flow of energy. Meridian massage has a healing effect on pain, balances emotions, relieves stress and calms the mind. The self-healing powers are activated, the immune system is supported and blood circulation is stimulated. Each treatment is adapted to the client's current state of health. It is a unique opportunity to find serenity, relaxation and concentration.

Head and migraine

The head and migraine massage focuses on relieving head congestion, eliminating pain and normalizing blood circulation. This treatment lasts 45 - 60 minutes, relaxes the entire body and optimizes blood circulation and energy flow in the head. By massaging various acupuncture points, circulation is improved and energy is brought into flow by stroking the meridians. Acupuncture points are used on the face, head, neck and chest.
This gentle treatment is effective for chronic and acute headaches. After the massage, the head feels light and free. It can be used on children and adults. In the case of migraines, the therapy is used as a preventative measure during periods without attacks.

Cupping massage

Cupping massage is a method that is more than 5000 years old. Cupping has been used in the medicine of all primitive peoples and the oldest civilized peoples. It is used successfully for a wide range of illnesses and can be used at almost any age.
In contrast to classic pressure massage, cupping massage does not push the blood away, but draws it in. The suction of the cupping glass stimulates the blood supply to the tissue, stimulates the skin's metabolism, activates lymph circulation and supports the immune system. Toxins accumulated in the tissue can be removed thanks to cupping. Tension, hardening and painful areas are noticeably alleviated within a short time. 

Lymphatic drainage

This form of massage is also known as decongestive therapy and is used to treat congestion of tissue fluid. The effect of lymphatic drainage is essentially based on four effects: decongesting, pain-relieving, relaxing and strengthening. These effects are achieved through gentle, slow and circular movements. Lymphatic drainage is mainly used for lymphoedema, venous insufficiency (often visible in the form of “varicose veins”) and post-operative swelling.


Foot and hand reflexes

Hand and foot reflexology is based on the assumption that there are certain points on the palms of the hands, the backs of the hands, the soles of the feet and the instep of the feet that lead directly to the other areas of the body via numerous energy pathways. Structural changes and hardening are often found at these points. These are caused by crystalline deposits of uric acid and other waste products that cannot be removed due to poor circulation.
Each reflex zone on the feet and hands is assigned to an organ, which is better supplied with blood through the massage. This can have a pain-relieving, healing effect. Foot and hand reflexology massage is a valuable therapeutic tool that can be used as a stand-alone or complementary treatment, or as a preventative measure for a wide range of complaints.

Early childhood reflexes

All living creatures are born with a multitude of intuitive reflexes that ensure survival and undisturbed development. Through these reflexes, the baby learns to suck, move, crawl on its stomach, lift its head, crawl, etc.
The circumstances of our earliest childhood were often not optimal, so that we could freely and unhindered live out and internalize all the necessary reflexes. Those reflexes that we were not allowed to live out to their full potential are carried over into adolescence and later adulthood. If reflex integration is not fully completed, residual reactions from early childhood reflexes remain and can have a negative impact on posture, health, concentration, orientation, language, as well as social and emotional competence.
Using music, play and movement, Brendan O'Hara has developed a method that makes it possible to integrate reflexes that have not been lived and to balance out blockages, inhibitions and developmental disorders. A positive change towards joie de vivre can often be observed after just a few sessions.

Neurolymphatic reflexes

Neurolymphatic reflexes go back to the American osteopath Francis Chapman. He discovered that chronic pathological changes in organs with lymphatic stresses manifest themselves on the surface in the form of lymphatic swelling. The influence of Chapman's reflex points on the musculature was recognized by chiropractor George Goodheart in 1964. As a co-founder of applied kinesiology, he used the neurolymphatic reflex zones primarily for diagnostic purposes.

I use the neurolymphatic points to treat internal organs via the surface of the body and to gently treat tension and painful areas of the body.
