Indian Ayurveda to Asian Shiatsu...
diverse massage program offered at Hotel
Trieste and Victoria reflects the
management's forward thinking, their desire
to remain modern and up-to-date. Spa guests
can sample from a cornucopia of both western
and eastern therapies with techniques ranging
from shiatsu to ayurveda, anti-stress to reiki,
and foot reflexology to lympho-drainage. The
two massages I tried were excellent and I wished
I had had time for more.
full body massage was designed to stimulate
circulation and joint mobility. This man accomplished
in thirty minutes what someone less skilled
probably couldn't do in an hour. Most impressive!
And my ayurvedic
massage with Barbara was an absolute dream.
She set the stage by darkening the room, lighting
candles and introducing a soothing backdrop
of Indian music. I was asked to identify the
aromatherapy oil my body needed
most - my choice was sandlewood for stress reduction.
The intriguing massage began as Barbara explained
her goal -- to balance my chakras (energy centres)
and to energize my being. For one hour this
woman worked her magic on my complete body ending
with the dripping of warm oil onto my hair,
then massaging my head and scalp thoroughly.
I felt as if I was floating. This was one of
the most delicious spa experiences I've ever
had. Brava, Barbara!
