In the massage spa, it is quiet and pleasantly warm. There is a sweet vanilla aroma, seasoned with a touch of lavender, which grows in the Alpine pastures of the Allgäu. The masseuse carefully drizzles the warm oil on Tanja’s back and its energy instantly transfers to her – a crucial experience for all the senses.
Everything flows: energetic oil massages from head to foot
The stressed city dweller feels like a different person after the first oil massage of her life. An astonishing experience of which Spa Manager Sandra Ried has heard before: “A massage relieves tensions and rectifies the energies in the body.”
The warm oil envelopes the body like a protective coating and makes it easier for the masseurs to gently stroke your skin, to knead it and to work it in circular movements without resistance. And incidentally, oil massages also relieve tensions, revitalise the skin and have a detoxifying effect.
The right oil for every guest
Tailored to your personal condition and constitution, the masseur selects precisely the right oil for you with the appropriate additives. The valuable oils are of vegetable origin and come from the first cold pressing. Every massage oil has its own special benefit:
- almond oil is very well tolerated and pleasantly mild,
- macadamia oil soothes irritated skin,
- avocado oil is rich in content and
- jojoba oil is absorbed particularly quickly and makes your skin smooth.
Aromatic oils with the best from the nature of the Allgäu
Oil additives enhance the holistic relaxation experience: aromatic oils not only have an effect through your skin, but also through your nose:
- the aroma of lavender releases a feeling of deep relaxation.
- Citrus fruits or bergamot oranges stimulate your entire organism.
- Rosemary improves the circulation.
- The aroma of roses produces a comprehensive sense of well-being.
In the Panoramahotel Oberjoch, there are special oils which the spa team has enriched with the best from the surrounding nature. For example fine herbs and seeds from the Alpine pastures of the Allgäu or a couple of drops of mountain pine oil.
Oil massages: relaxation experience with a long-lasting effect
An oil massage is more than balm for your body. “The cause of physical tension is often found in the head,” says the Spa Manager. Talking of the head – back in her everyday life, Tanja Gebhard is inwardly at peace even weeks after her stay in the Allgäu. It is as if her headaches have been blown away.
You too can face your tasks with a new composure – after a wellness holiday in the Allgäu. Treat yourself to a relaxing oil massage for your body and spirit.
Extra tip: How to relax with oils at home
Stress? Stiff limbs? Dry skin? Prepare yourself a comfortable oil bath. The right dose and the quality of the bath oil are decisive here. Take two tablespoons of almond or olive oil and add up to ten drops of essential lavender oil. As the aromas of the oils evaporate relatively quickly, pour the oil mixture into the bath that you have already run. Now just climb in, stretch out and enjoy.
