HOLISTIC CLASSIC MASSAGE BY KALOYAN KALEV

The focus of the massages at metta is aimed at freeing the soft tissue from cramps and adhesions which have lead to limited mobility of many joints and reduced functional activity of the internal organs.
Freeing the soft tissues leads to stress reduction due to the relationship between the state of the myofascial and peripheral nervous system, on one hand, and the central nervous system, on the other.

 

The techniques used during the massage increase the body’s resilience and immune response – a direct result of activating a number of vital acupressure points and improving blood circulation as well as lymph flow. Working on the acupressure points also enhances the release of neurotransmitters and happiness hormones into the bloodstream.

 

During the massage, if the specific issue requires it, our therapist could use additional methods such as:

 

  • Suction cup therapy (at the client’s request)
  • Pulsating infrared light that increases the levels of ATP (the molecule of energy for the cell) in the mitochondria
  • Moxa therapy (for specific indications)

 

The ultimate goal is for you to go back to reality feeling free, relaxed, energized, refreshed and positively motivated.

 

Our massage therapist Kaloyan Kalev graduated from the National Sports Academy in 2014 with a degree in Spa-culture, Hydro, Litho and Thalasso practices. In 2012 he successfully completed a course in “Classic and Asian Massage” and “Bodybuilding and Fitness-Bodybuilding”.

 

From 2014 until 2017, Kaloyan worked at the Center for Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture “EDI”, where he performed classical and reflexology massage, combining acupressure and manual techniques, methods of thermal and mechanical influence, impact by radio frequency, cavitation and coherent infrared light. He is interested in alternative healing practices in the fields of Chinese medicine, light and magnetic therapy, dietetics, psychosomatic influences, human design and astrology.

SAHASI MASSAGE FOR WOMEN

The Sahasi women’s massage is a delicate and gentle care for the physical, emotional and mental health of a woman. It combines traditional (therapeutic) massage movements from Ayurveda, stimulation of vital energy points (Marma) important to women and gentle releasing stretches coordinated with deep breathing.

 

The smooth and flowing massage movements act as a powerful stimulant to the lymph, which helps remove accumulated toxins and waste matter in the breast area (one of the main causes of breast tissue disease, according to Ayurveda), increases blood supply and revitalizes breast tissue. The massage and the Marma points release blockages in the subtle channels (Nadi), allowing the free flow of energy (Prana) to the organs. Organic, warmed sesame oil* (known for its healing properties in Ayurveda) is used.

 

The massage is focused on the upper body – it covers the entire back, neck, décolletage, arms, lymphatic drainage of the armpits, abdomen, chest, face and scalp. Gentle, releasing pressure is applied to the legs and feet, but not massaged with oil. In addition to being the most gentle feminine health care, Sahasi massage brings deep relaxation to the body and mind. It is suitable for any woman who wishes to take care of herself and fully enjoy her femininity.
