Every treatment, every massage, every ritual was created with love and dedicated to you, so that you may rediscover yourselves.
From the wisdom of Chinese Medicine
The Almablu energy massages are rooted in the wisdom of Classical Chinese Medicine, which aims at treating the cause rather than the symptom linked to stress, to restore the body with balance, harmony and well being. This manipulative therapy is inspired by the ancient Chinese massage Tuina, which acts with a variety of techniques on the body’s energy meridians and on precise points that have commonly been used in acupuncture. The gentle and rhythmic movements, performed in an atmosphere of complete relaxation, reach the soul’s hidden depths through the body.
A moment: 25 min
A moment… the little time dedicated to taking care of our bodies… a moment and back tension is relieved… The back, the part of the body where all our tension and stress accumulate. 25 minutes of unforgettable experience. The back is the yang: the use of rhythmic pressure on the bladder meridians helps our nervous system release tension, allowing the body to feel relaxed and ready to face daily life.
The flower and the roots: 50 min
The result of an ancient technique called On Zon Su, energy reflexology brings great benefit to the body reflexes through the stimulation of a particular foot area associated with the relevant organ.
The journey between heaven and earth: 80 min
The stimulation of points and meridians with long, fluid strokes, soft and enveloping, helps reduce body tension, relaxing body muscles and relieving stress significantly.
Reflections of the self: 50 min
Based on the principles of Classical Chinese Medicine, through the fusion of Eastern and Western techniques, “Reflection of the self” works along the meridian courses starting from the hands and feet. The energy thus aroused gives the body a wonderful feeling of vitality.
Strength Game: 40 min
Warm oil and hot lava stones for a massage dedicated to all those who suffer from muscle contractures – associated with dorsal and lumbar tension. The stones gently stretch tight muscles, while the heat of the oil, producing vasodilation, relaxes the connective tissue and muscle fibres.
Light at dusk: 40 min
Thanks to the Eastern massage technique called Tuina, the face relaxes its features and the facial expressions regain their definition. Signs of ageing are reduced and the skin, nourished with new vitality, glows.
Dispersing the clouds in the sky: 40 min
The face represents the identity of every person; its different expressions and the slight changes in complexion can reveal a person’s overall well-being, by stimulating the points and meridians of the face in a targeted manner, the ancient technique of Gua Sha emphasizes skin’s brightness and stimulates skin’s tone immediately after the treatment. Our truest and deepest nature comes into view, and with it a radiance that reflects the joy of living.
Regenerating Moxibustion: 20 min
The stimulation of specific points on the body using heat is an ancient practice originating in Classical Chinese Medicine, an extremely pleasant technique that triggers the flow of vital energy – known as QI – by acting on the energy meridians. The heat is transmitted to the body through moxibustion, a cigar-shaped stick of mugwort leaves that stimulates the acupuncture points of the Bladder meridian and promotes the smooth flow of body energy through heat infusion. For a new feeling of vitality and well being, we recommend combining the regenerating moxibustion treatment with the energetic massage “The Lightness of Being”.
The Lightness of Being: 50 min
At the end of this energetic and regenerating massage your body and soul will experience a sensation of incredible lightness, enthusiasm and vitality. Our therapists will activate the energy flow by stimulating the acupuncture points along the kidney and gallbladder meridians. The regenerating beneficial effect of this massage will accompany you in the days to follow and fill you with a renewed excitement for life.
Detoxifying Moxibustion: 20 min
The purpose of detoxifying moxibustion is to dredge the meridians in order to ensure the correct flow of QI. The Almablu therapists apply this Classical Chinese Medicine technique by moving the mugwort stick – known as moxa – in a circular motion over the liver and kidney meridian points. The diffusion of heat through indirect moxibustion helps revive the flow of energy and blood circulation throughout the body, hence restoring balance. For more effective results we recommend combining moxibustion with the detoxifying massage “Across the border”.
Across the border: 50 min
Life is the balance of opposites, imbalance seeks balance. In this search for harmony between the inside and the outside, the detoxifying energy massage “Across the Border” uses the body to act on the deepest sphere of self. The stimulation of the liver and kidney meridians is reflected internally, playing a key role in restoring the body’s detoxifying functions. The boundary between the two entities shrinks and a new glow radiates from the inside to the outside.
A good night sleep
Dedicated to all those who need to improve the quality of their sleep or are unable to sleep.
Warrior’s Rest: 50 min
“Warrior’s Rest” is a massage designed to stabilize the flow of energy between body and head. The goal is to promote proper rhythms of sleep-wakefulness by restoring balance in the two energy phases, which, according to Chinese medicine, are present in the human body. When one of these two phases is altered, a local accumulation in the head may occur, which must be resolved in order to get optimal sleep.
At the Foot of Mount Olympus: 50 min
Sleep patterns can also be regulated through the feet, which represent our support and the roots of our body. According to classical Chinese medicine, the energies of the earth penetrate the soles of the feet in their initiation journey towards the sky. Sometimes, however, localized disorders alter the proper flow of energy with different outcomes, one of which is a specific deficiency that triggers sleep onset. Massaging the plantar area can restore the harmony and serenity needed for a good restorative sleep.
The Magic of Silence: 80 min
“The magic of silence” is a massage designed to restore balance in the two energy phases, which, according to Chinese medicine, affect the rhythms of sleep and wakefulness. Consequently, it regulates the flows of energy between body and head that improve sleep quality. The 80-minute treatment focuses on penetrating deeper in order to stop the flow of time and the thoughts processes that disrupt nighttime sleep. The strokes are slow but not invasive and stimulate key points on the meridians linked to the sleep-wake rhythm.
The perfect fusion of heaven and earth
Double the feeling of well-being with the 4-hand massage performed by two Almablu therapists. By acting in harmony on the meridians, these two massages will restore a deep sensation of balance and harmony. A one-of-a-kind treatment that offers a synchronized head and foot massage, the perfect fusion of heaven and earth, thought and action according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
A stroll in Paradise: 50 min
A journey to follow the rhythm of your own heart, inspired by the synchronized massage movements performed by two therapists working in unison, ultimately inducing a state of sheer bliss.
The synchronized four-hand stimulation of specific points along the meridians of the body creates an emotional journey and provides a unique sense of well-being. Not an ordinary four-hand massage but, as the name suggests, a stroll in paradise through the emotions of the heart.
Jade Flower: 40 min
An Innovative Almablu four-hand treatment, which involves synchronized massage strokes on the head and feet, which, according to oriental traditions, symbolically represent heaven and earth.
Just as the jade gemstone possesses an invaluable combination of healing properties, so the head and the feet represent the underlying relationship between thought and action that characterizes the so-called “Ren-Man” in Confucian philosophy, the main character of his time and of his space.
To reactivate the body's defense mechanism
The immune system plays a fundamental role for our body, protecting it from internal and external aggressions that can compromise health. But how can we best support our defenses?
There are many treatments, massages and ancient healing practices in Traditional Chinese Medicine that stimulate the meridian points of the large intestine and stomach to reactivate the body’s defense mechanism.
The goal of our therapists is therefore to strengthen and boost this mechanism with targeted massages. A healthy body, in fact, has a natural protection system capable of defending the body from countless viruses and bacteria.
The breath and the quiver: 50 min
The body has countless arrows in its quiver to defend us from external aggressions; this treatment stimulates what eastern cultures call defense energy and the western world calls immunity. In particular, there are areas of the epidermis that in Chinese and Japanese traditions are specifically delegated to these functions. The stimulation of these elective points, which are located along the meridians, reactivates the immune system, providing an instant burst of energy after the massage.
The awakening of the Earth: 40 min
There is only one acupuncture point on the sole of the foot, called the “courage spring” or “bubbling spring”. According to Chinese traditions, it is through this point that we accept this contract called life and that we anchor ourselves to our earthly existence. We could say that the feet represent our strength, our ability to stand up physically, but also symbolically, in life. Thanks to the myriad nerve connections of the sole of the foot we can rebalance the entire organism. Non-invasive but noticeable and effective strokes will make your feet feel in perfect harmony with mother earth.
Immunostimulant moxibustion: 20 min
Vital energy, or Qi, can be activated with one of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s oldest techniques: moxibustion. The heat generated by the mugwort leaf stick pleasantly stimulates the flow of this energy, and creates an immunostimulating effect, thanks to the targeted action on the meridian points of the large intestine and stomach through which the body activates the strengthening mechanism of the immune system.
Sublime ritual – Sunset reflection: 1 hour 50 min
The colors, the play of light and the iridescent reflections of the sunset are a delight for the senses and the spirit. They seem to open the door to an unknown and fantastic world and transport us to a dimension beyond our own. That’s why the sunset is always a magical moment to admire in its indescribable beauty at the end of each day.
We wanted to bring the magic and wonder sparked by the sunset to this ritual, to create an experience of memorable sensations, reactivate the immune system and bring to light our inner reflections.
The ritual includes:
Turkish bath with aromatherapy
Purifying body treatment
Body massage for the immune system “The breath and the quiver”
