On one side, I would like to talk a little bit about history and roots.

This massage therapy has been used for ages in Egypt, China and India, and nowadays it has been spread all around the world.The word Holistic refers to whole, and it is given to this kind of massage because it treats the body as a whole.


On the other hand, we would like to describe the technique :

In the Holistic massage we find 4 different main techniques: Effleurage (stroking) , petrissage (kneading) , tapotement (cupping taps) and vibration.


Thus, this massage is best for:
