“In general, massage is an instinctive action that is as old as humanity. One clear example of this is found in children when they fall.  The first thing we do is rub the painful area and say: Don’t worry; it’s okay.  The pain is gone…”

Montserrat Espejo Salamanca.

Montse was my manual massage professor. She’s a wonderful person and, thanks to her, I’ve been able to develop my passion for this therapy and learn a lot.

Through massage, touch can reaffirm, stimulate, relax, tone, awaken the muscles and skin and eliminate metabolic waste in the fibres.

There are many different benefits to massage, but the sole objective is to improve a person’s physical and emotional health.  And we mustn’t forget that best results are obtained in combination with a good diet and exercise.

Anti-cellulite massage:

These massages are essential to any pre and post-operative anti-cellulite treatment. The objectives are to warm up fat tissue so there is more fluid and break down the fat tissue into smaller molecules that are easier to move in order to foster their reabsorption by the lymphatic system for drainage.

A preliminary assessment is done before the session to determine the areas that must be worked more than the others depending on whether the cellulitis is hard or there is a problem with flaccidity.
