My approach to treatment is three-dimensional, it combines massage techniques and traditional knowledge to improve the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of each person

A therapeutic massage is one in which both client and practitioner have a shared goal of achieving structural changes within the body, generally through a series of regular massages. It understands the human being as a unity between body, mind, and spirit. Each treatment is tailored to the person’s preferences and specific needs

Abdominal Sacral Massage is a non-invasive therapeutic treatment. It involves a slow, deep, external treatment of the abdomen, lower back and sacrum to soften muscles, help free and align congested organs and therefore  the flow of blood, lymph, and nerve pathways.

EMOTIONAL STRESS TREATMENT

What is Emotional Stress Therapy?

A full-body treatment involving soft music, soft lighting, Greek herbals teas, a space for a deep conversation about yourself, a moment to reflect, express and share your anguish, your fears, your dreams and your yearnings  (this only if the person wants to talk about themselves).

 

You will have a gentle massage with aromatic oils. All kinds of techniques will be used including long strokes, gentle kneading and rolling of skin and muscle.

 

It is a passive treatment that can help you alleviate and understand the physical and emotional imbalances that you suffer as a result of experiencing stressful or traumatic situations.

 

All this complemented by the intake of herbal teas that assist the body to eliminate toxins, increases its immunity, and promote a sense of calm and inner well-being. The herbs I use grow naturally in the mountains of Lesvos Island in Greece and they have been collected manually, following ancient practices of drying and storage to preserve their medicinal properties.


All have long-proven medicinal properties that provide health and balance for the body without side effects. The most common Greek herbs are: Mountain chamomile, Valerian root, Balsamo (St John´s Wort), Faskomilo (sage), Sideritis (Greek mountain tea), Olive Leaves and Mint.

Contexts in which this therapy can be used.

Any person at any stage of their lives may need to resort to Emotional Stress Therapy.

Massage therapies are an excellent way to face physical and emotional problems; caused by excess of stress or traumatic event that has not been completely resolved.

In my experience, this type of therapy is highly recommended for women, because it approaches holistically to deal with physical, emotional and social aspects of the female world. With this therapy, we can actually deal with important issues such as post  depressions, menopause transition, menstrual cycle, psychological support after a divorce etc.
