One of the wonderful ways to nurture yourself and to look after your body, mind and spirit during your stay here at La Crisalida Retreats is to book one or more of our holistic treatments.
All the treatments on offer work alongside La Crisalida’s approach to health and well-being, by looking after your body, mind and energy, and bringing balance back to the whole you. There is plenty of time in the programme to enable you to relax in our dedicated tranquil beauty suite, enjoying luxurious aromatic organic essential oils and creams, and the treatment(s) of your choice.
Our therapists are special. All are highly gifted and well trained. They deliver personalised treatments at times to suit you. Some guests choose to book in a number of sessions during their stay, finding relief from back pain, shoulder pain, hip aches, whiplash, to name a few! Sessions are generally one hour in length, but you can take longer (some are 90 minutes). You can choose from a wide range of treatments to leave you feeling relaxed and pampered, including: deep tissue massage, sports massage, relaxing massage, hot and cold stone massage, chakra balance, Reiki, magnetic therapy, manicure, pedicure, facial, threading, ayurvedic massage, bioresonance, life coaching and others. In order to plan a holistic or beauty therapy session that is safe and effective, the therapist will need some general information about your medical history. When booking a treatment, one of the reception team will give you a short medical form to complete and return before confirming your treatment. We ask that you share any relevant medical conditions. With some health conditions, for example cancer, or if you are pregnant, not all of the treatments will be available. We can provide more information upon request.
More information on the therapies and all of the therapists are available in reception at the retreat.
Common questions about treatments
How do I book a treatment and can I book before I come?A.
You can book a treatment by speaking to one of our reception team. They will check which times the therapists are available and arrange the session for you. We usually suggest waiting to book a treatment until you arrive at the retreat, so that you can decide your preferred time, to make sure you will not miss any activities you really want to do.
If you know you want a massage or treatment soon after you arrive, you can also contact one of our reception team and they can arrange this in advance for you – what a lovely start to your relaxation time!
What is the price for a treatment?A.
The treatments vary in price, ranging from 50€ to 100€. Treatments are not included in the cost of your retreat, so are payable locally (at reception) in Euros. You can pay by cash or card.
Please see the price list above.
When can I do the treatment?A.
It´s up to you. We arrange treatments between you and the therapist, around the activities in the programme that you wish to participate in. Some therapists are available most of the week, some work certain days or times. Not to worry, we will arrange it for you! Just speak to one of our receptionists.
What massages do you offer?A.
Massage is a wonderful way to relax and to release tension that is held in your body and each massage contributes to your overall sense of well-being. It is one of our most popular therapies here at La Crisalida Retreats. Here you can choose your preferred massage maybe combining deep tissue, sports, relaxing, healing and Swedish massage to ensure you receive the treatment best for you. You can choose whether you want a back, neck and shoulders massage, full body, feet and hands (good for releasing energy blocks) or any combination. We also offer Indian Head massage, to release discomfort in the neck, shoulders, upper back, face and scalp. One of our therapists is a qualified osteopath so can work with you to remedy any alignment or other structural issues that you might have. Combining massage with organic essential massage oils makes this the ideal personalised massage to help you feel relaxed and wonderful. Guests tell us that they float from their sessions, feeling looser and moving more freely than when they went in!
