The importance of massages
Our specialised massage therapists believe that “there is no life without massage”. At Kalisti Hotel & Suites, we believe there is no life without kindness, but we can easily argue that a massage is in fact an act of kindness! The energy that flows between the therapist and patient is palpable and can be many things, from gentle and soothing to strong and alleviating, according to what the body needs. And today, more than ever, it is imperative for us to listen to our bodies; especially during these fast times when the only moments of quiet are during our sleep. And how often have you woken up and felt fully rested? There are so many conditions that affect the quality of sleep, but it is an undeniable fact that a good massage can promote better sleep, in addition to all the other benefits seen in the following: - nervous \ muscular \ endocrine \ circulatory \ lymphatic systems.
Massages are known for inducing a relaxation response in the body which lowers the heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure, while it boosts the immune system and generally decreases the physical effects of stress. In a few words? Holistic wellness with bountiful effects!
Soothing Couples Massage Santorini
For those who wish to experience the importance of massages first hand, yet cannot stand leaving their partner’s side even for a therapeutic wellness session, be sure to try our sensational couples massage. For the most soothing Couples Massage Santorini can offer, you and your partner can simultaneously enjoy a soothing massage for two. You can share our therapy room, or arrange it in the privacy of your room or suite or even by the pool while therapists work their magic on both of you.
Technical Massages: Swedish & Thai
Those who seek a more technical massage to alleviate specific tensions that have accumulated due to the prolonged physiological effects of stress on the body, our Swedish Massage could be just the thing! Using 5 main techniques, a Swedish massage is the western practitioner’s answer to improving blood circulation, soothing muscles and reducing fatigue both physical and emotional. The Thai Massage is a renowned eastern method for achieving the above as well as detoxifying tissue and relieving stress symptoms, thus achieving deep relaxation.
Go Greek: Hippocrates & Mastic Massages
Although most people will not be unfamiliar with the aforementioned Swedish and Thai massages, at Kalisti we offer our guests the opportunity of trying something entirely new and quintessentially Greek too! Inspired by our Greek heritage and the “anatripsis” thesis of Hippocrates, the forefather of modern medicine, the name-sake Hippocrates Ancient Greek Massage uses ancient methods for soothing the body. Hippocrates used to recommend it to his students for achieving holistic wellness and promoting overall wellbeing. The Mastic Therapy Massage incorporates the refreshing and unique mastic from Chios island into the massage which cleanses and brightens the skin, removing impurities, as well as tightening tissues.
