Natural organic skin care
We all know “ you are what you eat,” but it is also important to nourish your body from the outside. Everything we put in and on our Bodies must be safe and nutritious! Our skin is the largest of our organs and has several different functions to keep our bodies healthy and vital.
· Your skin protects your immune system from bacteria and disease
· it helps to regulate your body’s temperature
· it keeps your essential body fluids (blood, water and lymph) from evaporating
· protects body tissues and organs against injuries
· the nerves in your skin also help your brain respond to sensations of hot and cold and tells you that your body has been touched
· it protects you from wind and absorbs beautiful sunlight
· and most important of all in our times, it protects you from environmental pollution, toxins and free radicals!
Nothing is so attractive as radiant, clear, fresh skin. The color, texture and softness of it are the most important elements of beauty.

Remember “your body is the temple of your soul”!
“To nourish your body from the inside and outside is feeding your soul with love!” – Isabell Mirbach, massage therapist and natural skin care expert
Yoga is an ancient Indian science. It was first mentioned in connection with Ayurveda in the almost 5000 years old writing, the “Vedas“. Yoga“ is a Sanskrit word and is often translated as “union“ or “connection“ – it is an ancient practice of self-discovery, uniting the body, mind and spirit to find peace and contentment.
The benefits of a regular yoga practice are vast. From the reduction of stress to strengthening of the muscles, improvement of posture and the immune system as well as teaching us more awareness of ourselves,. With Yoga we learn to breathe better, move more consciously and relax more deeply!
Hatha-Yoga ( the physical types of yoga)
Ha means „sun“, Tha means „moon“. The mixture and balance of these two opposing energy qualities are the essence of physical yoga. A balance of Ha and Tha results in a harmonious whole. Life-force is called prana in yoga. Asanas (precise physical postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) cleanse the nadis, (the energetic channels of the body).Focus on a complete and steady breath encourage the energy (prana) to move freely and blockages are cleared. The accumulation of more prana gives us a clear peaceful mind, a healthy body and opens up our soul for the cosmic loving energy.
Practising yoga helps us to reach a serene state of mind. When the mind is clear of tension and worry, concentration improves, awareness increases; we are able to focus better and make better decisions. We develop the ability to remain calm in difficult moment.

The appreciation for the power of touch
Massage is an intensive experience physically and emotionally and each of the therapists/healers brings their unique touch into the treatment, which makes every massage an adventure.
Some of the most popular ancient healing art of massage are:
Thai Massage, Balinese Massage, Ayurveda, Acupressure, Reflexology, Aroma Massage and Lomi Lomi.
Originating from a North Indian doctor “Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha” who is still being honored in Thailand as the father of medicine, a fountain of knowledge in the areas of herbal therapy, mineral therapy and physical therapy, contemporary to the Buddha. His teachings spread to Thailand with the advent of Buddhism. Dr. Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha is the founder of Nuad Phaen Boran (Traditional Thai massage), becoming thus the Teacher of all Nuad practitioners. This holistic massage style combines yoga stretches, acupressure, rhythmic massage and gentle twisting to relieve muscle- and joint tension and increase flexibility and free-flowing energy. The bodywork is often performed on the floor and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement.
Traditionally there are two main styles of Thai Massage: Northern (Chiang-Mai) and Southern (Bangkok) style. The Chiang-Mai style is considered gentler and has become popular in the western countries as the Bangkok style is faster and sometimes more intense but widespread in Thailand.
Thai Massage is much more than what is typically considered massage in the West! The true practice of the art of healing in traditional “Nuad Boran” is the compassionate intent of the healer. The Buddhist spiritual practices associated with Thai Massage cultivate humility, awareness, and concentration in the healer designed to bring the practitioner to a deeper level of awareness and loving kindness.
Traditional Balinese Massage
Bali, the island of the gods: The Balinese live equally in two worlds: the seen or conscious world called sekala, and the unseen or spiritual world, called niskala. Both of these elements are addressed in their healing techniques. The rich Balinese culture includes a wealth of information on herbal remedies, massage and energy healing. All of this ancient wisdom we find in the Traditional Balinese Massage.
A gentle massage of slow, long flowing strokes, skin rolling and pressure point application is used in this deeply relaxing massage to relieve stress, tension and improve circulation. The use of super-nourishing virgin coconut oil suitable for all skin types and the help of aromatic essential oils gets absorbed through the skin and carried around the body to stimulate our immune system and energy flow.
Has been practiced for over 5,000 years and originates from india. The “mother of all healing therapies“ is considered to be the basis for all natural medicine. „Ayur” means „life“ and „Veda” means “knowledge” - Ayurveda provides the knowledge needed to live a long, healthy and fulfilling life. The body is considered to be the “temple of the soul”and it’s wellbeing is essential for mental growth and self-development.
Ayurveda defines three different energies, the so-called Doshas: Vata(ether&air), Pitta(fire&water), Kapha(earth&water).
The key to well-being is keeping these three energies in balance and at one with the five elements of creation (earth, fire, sky, water and air).
Ayurveda uses almost all healing modalities including yoga, aroma therapy, meditation, herbalism, nutrition, astrology and so on in treating a patient holistically. Acupressure
