BODY MASSAGE The journey between heaven and earth80 min
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine our body does not have clear boundaries but is intertwined with the universe in a continuous exchange of energy between heaven and earth. This journey begins with gentle enveloping strokes on the feet and on the legs - which represent earth -, continues on the 5 regions of the spine and then proceeds to the head and the face - which represent heaven. The strokes then continue in the opposite direction, from heaven back to earth through the abdomen, the arms and back to the legs. This massage promotes a deep sense of psychophysical well-being by significantly relieving stress.

This treatment, the result of an ancient technique called “On Zon Su”, a foot massage deeply rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, begins with strokes aimed at facilitating the proper flow of fluids along our body.

A new vitality finally pervades the body and the spirit.
DETOXIFYING BODY MASSAGE Across the border50 min

REGENERATING Moxibustion20 min
Stimulation through heat is an ancient practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine called moxibustion. An extremely pleasant treatment that activates the flow of vital energy known as Qi through the heat emitted by a mugwort stick, which stimulates the specific points of the urinary bladder meridian, and thus activates the body’s energy, providing a regenerating effect.
DETOXIFYING Moxibustion20 min
The goal of detoxifying moxibustion is to stimulate the specific points of the energy meridians for a correct flow of vital Qi energy. The mugwort stick, known as Moxa, is used in a circular motion directly over the meridian points corresponding to the liver and kidneys, helping the body eliminate accumulated toxins.
FOOT REFLEXOLOGYFOR THE IMMUNE SYSTEM The awakening of the Earth40 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.
BODY MASSAGE FOR THE IMMUNE SYSTEM The breath and the quiver50 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.
IMMUNOSTIMULANT Moxibustion20 min
Vital energy, or Qi, can be activated with one of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s oldest techniques: moxibustion.
