Therapies

theraphy

El Estar offers a variety of therapies, using a range of different techniques. While each technique has its distinct features, all of them relax and restore the energy of the body, provide relief from pain and stress, and improve circulation and mobility at different levels (muscles, nerves, joints, and bones).

Some of the techniques also involve the emotional and spiritual bodies. Diagnostics are applied to do a personalized work.

In addition to our regular bodyworkers, we also have guest practitioners, so please contact us to find out which additional therapies may be available.

SWEDISH MASSAGE

Swedish is the first and oldest massage known in the West. Movements are long and smooth.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage applies greater pressure than Swedish massage and reaches deeper layers of the muscle. It can be used to release trapped nerves and correct damaged muscle tissue.

TUI NA MASSAGE

Tui Na ("tway-na") is a Chinese massage therapy. With various strokes along energy channels as well as gentle shaking, stretching and rotation, the stimulation and release provide an invigorating sensation.

TAI MASSAGE

Often referred to as "yoga for lazy people", this massage stretches all of your body, opening the energy channels. Patients often report that they "float" after this experience.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is a complementary therapy which focuses on gentle massage on feet, hands and ears. Organs are “mirrored” in these three parts. The primary benefit is to reduce stress and “re-set” the body’s equilibrium.

ACUPRESSURE-SHIATSU

Acupressure is an ancient healing art of the East. Finger pressure is used to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities, working with the energy channels. This technique is practiced as both table or chair massage, with or without oil, several stretches are used.

REIKI

Reiki is a holistic healing modality that channels and connects the universal life force energy and the source within to awaken and heal at all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

CRANIOSACRAL

Deep technique used to relieve emotional and physical blockages.

ACUPUNCTURE

This ancient therapy uses needles and can very quickly resolve some ailments or disorders of the body and the mind. This therapy can be excellent for those who prefer not to be touched.


Please note that therapeutic massages offer immediate benefits. However, for deeper and longer lasting results a series of treatments is recommended. After your first therapeutic treatment, should you decide to pursue deeper healing for acute and chronic conditions, we recommend a personalized physical program which may include exercises, stretches, therapeutic massage for a specific area, acupuncture, and more, depending on each case. We offer you a session package.
