THAI MASSAGE

Thai massage is based on the concept of Energy Lines, the Sen. Working the lines by acupressure and stretching can treat the whole body by opening energetic, physical or emotional blockages. Thai massage is carried out on the floor, without using oil. The patient wears light, comfortable clothing.

Thai massage promotes general health and well-being. It has a double purpose: on the preventive side, it actives the free flow of energy and improves fluid circulation, digestion, breathing capacity, body posture, flexibility, as well as releasing nervous tension. On the therapeutic side, it can cure a large number of pathologies such as lower back pain, headaches, digestive problems, stress, insomnia, nervous imbalance, neck and shoulder muscular tightness.

OSTEOTHAI

Osteothai is the integration of osteopathic principles and techniques from Thai massage, a bridge between East and West. It’s a form of bodywork that combines extraordinary creative and powerful Thai massage techniques with the precise and gentle touch of osteopathy. Osteothai combines traditional Thai Massage's varied and powerful stretches, using long leverage techniques across muscle groups, its acupressure work on energy lines and the creativity of dynamic movements with Osteopathy's release of tissue tension and work on restriction of mobility. 

Osteothai is practiced on the floor; the patient wears light comfortable clothing. The masseur uses not only his hands but also his feet, knees and elbows. This makes for a rich and colorful approach.

CRANIOSACRAL BIODYNAMICS

Integrated CranioSacral Biodynamics is a profound healing process which can influence deeply held patterns of disease - both physical and psychological – which accumulate throughout life as a result of injury or illness and may be subsequently held in the tissues of the body, leading to ill-health and dysfunction. Applying a biodynamic approach has the potential to transform patterns of restriction and resistance at a very fundamental level, thereby stimulating an environment in which health may be restored.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (CST)

Throughout life all of us encounter mental or physical stress. This can lead to tensions and restrictions in tissues and joints and affects the quality of the craniosacral rhythm. Through a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique the practitioner encourages the body to release restrictions that it has been unable to overcome on its own. CST is facilitating a deep state of relaxation in the body which has long been valued for its healing effects. CST has been found to be very beneficial for conditions like chronic neck and back pain, migraines and headaches, chronic fatigue, trauma or injury, stress related issues, sleep disorder, all kind of chronic infections and many other conditions.

Clients remain clothed during a treatment. CST is not a massage.

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Therapeutic or remedial massage is an extremely effective way of preventing and treating muscle injuries, pain or soreness. This could be as a result of an injury or some chronic pain developed over the years. It loosens tight muscles, helps the blood flow, reduce the adhesion between connective tissues, supports self-healing and makes happy.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a specialised physical and manual therapy used for the effective treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue and fascial aches, pains, tension and restrictions. Fascia is the connective tissue in and around muscles. Myofascial release is, therefore, an application used to alleviate tension, restrictions and adhesions in the myofascia in order to restore balance and function.

ZOLTAN GYORGYOVICS

THAI MASSAGE, OSTEOTHAI, & CRANIOSACRAL BIODYNAMICS

"Zoltan has the capacity to deeply listen to the needs of your body individually and according to that, he adjusts his treatments in a way that your body receives exactly what it needs. He is gifted with extremely sensitive hands and the ability to move and transform in much deeper and more subtle levels then 'only' the physical body."

After a transformative two years in India, Zoltan returned to his home in Budapest and started his study as a Medical Massage therapist. During his studies, he met his first Thai Massage teacher, who planted “a good spirit” within his heart and trained him in the basic principles: not only Thai Massage, but also Concentration Meditation and Vipassana. 

In 2006, Zoltan started to study with other teachers and became an assistant. In this way, he was refining his techniques and learning the way of teaching and sharing during many many years. In 2008 came his first trip to Thailand, where he continued to assist and study more with different teachers and schools. During this period, he started to give treatments and attended many Vipassana retreats. 

Since 2014 he is a fully authorised teacher of the Sunshine Network and teaching Thai Massage workshops and courses all around the globe. 

Zoltan appreciates a lot to have had the chance to study with the two founders of Osteothai (where Thai Massage meets Osteopathy) which left a big imprint in his way of treating and inspired him to finally start studying Osteopathy in Switzerland (SICO - swiss international school of osteopathy) where he lives, treats and teaches nowadays.

Zoltan offers 2 Hour Treatments which combine Traditional Thai Massage, OsteoThai and Craniosacral Biodynamics. His treatments take place on a soft futon on the floor. Please dress in comfortable, loose clothes - preferably non-synthetic and with long sleeves. It is recommended to keep your stomach light.

Costs: 150 CHF (it is possible to get a receipt for your health insurance).

MADELEINE GAILLE

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

"With mindfulness and love I am providing a safe space for my clients, allowing them to connect to their own resources. I am looking forward to support you on your personal path of healing, consciousness and growth."

For as long as Madeleine can remember, she has always taken a great interest in the functioning of the human body, in movement and in life as such. So it seemed reasonable to become a physiotherapist. However, after some time a deep longing for a more holistic approach surfaced.

When she first came in contact with Craniosacral therapy (CST) it was like a revelation because the method enhances the body’s inherent natural healing abilities. It can effect major changes in both physical and emotional well-beeing and facilitates a profound regeneration of body, soul and spirit.

For detailed descriptions about CST, see: https://www.craniosuisse.ch/

Costs: 60' Cranial Sacral 120 CHF / 80 CHF

Madeleine is acknowledged by basic and complementary health insurances.
