A wood house under the pecan trees hosts a unique treatment center combining massage treatments with a 60-minute slat-room stay.
Therapist Roi Ben Yehuda explains that the massage and salt room combination is unique since the salt room stay following the massage increases the level of serotonin oxidation in the blood and expedites the action of anti-depressants, consequently causing a sense of elation.
Roi is a clinical masseuse and a senior reflexologist who specializes in the IPEC method; is a certified Bach Flowers therapist and a therapist of breath problems. Roi is a graduate of Reflexology and Bach Flower Therapy studies under the Complementary and Alternative Medicine program at the Western Galilee College.
According to Roi, his treatments and the salt room stay open obstructions in energy channels and muscles, infuse blood and lymph fluids, balance respiratory system activity and nourish the body.
Treatments provided at the clinic include: Swedish massage, combined massage, reflexology, IPEC treatment – for balancing the body and soul, treatment of allergies through techniques such as bio-energy, cupping-glasses, moxa, tapping therapy – a technique combined with massage that works on muscles at a frequency that causes the muscles to relax and become limp.
The place also offers couple’s package deals that include a three hour long couple’s massage workshop consisting of the following three stages:
· A lecture and an explanation about the body’s anatomy with an introduction to the muscles.
· Massage technique training – with the male partner and the masseuse massaging the woman with four hands.
· Massage technique training – with the female partner and the masseuse massaging the man with four hands.
A convalescence package combining lodging and breakfast at the adjacent Under the Pecan Guest Room is also available, from 3 to 10 days.
