Oriental Massage

Oriental massage takes its inspiration from the Hammams found in Morocco and the other North African countries. The objective of the massage is to stimulate the blood circulation and relax the muscles in depth. This style of massage is often found in the Hammams and will typically last 20 to 30 minutes.

The massage is very energetic and profound, urging the body and spirit to let go. This massage is in particular recommended to relax the mind and spirit of hyperactive and overworked people, as well as people who feel burnt out and are in need of an energy burst.

From the beginning the energy of the massage is notable. The music and scents brings associations with the mystery of the North African world. The gestures are quick and energized and there is a rhythm and flow in how the massage is performed that correspondents with the the spirit of ancient oriental practices.

Both hands and forearms are used during the massage, tapping of feet and muscles as well as stretches that affects the entire body. There are quick light strokes to apply the massage oil as well as in depth work on the body.

By the end of the massage you feel energized and relaxed, the blood flowing quicker through the veins and tensions gone. It is a very rejuvenating massage style.
