Everyone should experience this aroma-therapeutic massage! The massage is performed with aroma candles chosen by you. The special massage candles melt at a low temperature safe for your body and thus relaxing massage can be performed by pouring the candle wax on the skin. This is something for the senses and the soul.
Masseuse Tiina comments: Massages are divided into classic and sensuous. The aim of a classic massage is to influence muscles therapeutically, the massage helps to drive away tiredness, balances the nervous system, relaxes painful and tense muscles and improves metabolism. In the case of a sensuous massage, the person’s senses – auditory, olfactory and tactile – play a part.
The massage performed with PINO candles belongs in the category of sensuous massages and is perfect for those doing mental work or in the period of intensive mental work (e.g., exams, business meetings). The pleasant scent, warmth, gentle touch and nice music have a relaxing, calming and stress-alleviating effect. The clients receive new energy, their thoughts fall into place.
Comment by a client who received the massage: When I made the booking for the massage, the receptionist asked me which scented PINO candle I wanted to use. I chose mint and coconut from the selection of four. (The selection also included orange and lemongrass, lime and bamboo and rose)
Masseuse Tiina comments: PINO is a very old company. It has been operating in Germany since 1906 and they know what they are doing. The scent is chosen by the person receiving the massage, because people’s preferences are very different and the massage must be performed on the background of a scent that the person really likes. For example, one person loves the scent of lavender, but another cannot tolerate it. If the person is not able to pick an aroma, it is recommended to choose refreshing, energizing scents in the morning (citruses, fresh scents, mint, coconut). The evening scents are the sweet and spicier scents that create romantic and entertainment-related thoughts. Rose is very popular. It creates very romantic thoughts and is thus not suitable for using before meetings, because this scent distracts one’s thoughts from work and it is more difficult to concentrate on serious subjects.
I was welcomed by a cozy atmosphere in the massage room, the mint and coconut candle that I had chosen was burning. I lay down and was covered with warm towels. A pleasant wave of warmth swept over my body and I felt calm and relaxed before the massage had even begun. A few minutes later, the masseuse removed the towels from my back and placed a smaller hot towel in the middle of my back.
Masseuse Tiina comments: Warmth has a calming effect, the effect of cold is irritating. A pleasant scent inspires, an unpleasant smell creates additional stress. There is a certain reason why we place the hot towel on the client’s back in the beginning. In order to lead the everyday thoughts to sensing, to the physical body.
Having removed the hot towel, the masseuse began the massage in a super pleasant, stroking manner. First I was afraid: is she really going to pour burning hot candle wax on my body? The masseuse calmed me, explaining that the wax of a PINO candle is based on a special recipe, which allows the wax to melt at a low temperature and is completely safe to human body. Also, the masseuse never pours the wax directly on the client’s skin, but first in her own hand and then she spreads it on the client’s skin with massaging gestures. In addition to the wax, oil is also used for the massage. The massage consisted of soft, slow, calming touches. I fell into sweet dreams embraced by all this softness, scent and warmth. The massage was absolutely perfect in this foggy autumn weather.
Masseuse Tiina comments: Even though we advertise it as a massage with PINO aroma candles, we also use oil for the massage in addition to the candle wax. Those two ensure soft and moisturized skin. Since the massage may leave the body slightly oily, the skin is rubbed with a third component –PINO tonic.
Drawing parallels to other types of massage, the massage with lava stones has a similar effect. The warm stones have an extremely relaxing and calming effect – it is great in the case of mental exhaustion. This massage, however, softens muscles as well.
