Meet Peter – Massage therapist at Ibiza Balance

How long have you been on the island? 

I moved to Ibiza in August 1995 and I’ve been living on the island since. I’ve been working with the Ibiza Balance team for six years now.

 

What’s your speciality? 

Deep tissue massages.

 

What’s the best thing about your job? 

Helping people. It’s the best thing when a client gets off the table with a smile on their face.

Ibiza Balance: Massage

What are your qualifications? 

I studied Swedish body relaxation massage in London. And I’ve taken courses with Anika to hone my expertise in therapeutic deep tissue massage and stomach massage.

 

What’s the best thing about your job? 

Ibiza Balance is so well organised with really high standards. The team is great and inspiring.

 

How would you describe the Ibiza Balance client? 

Ibiza Balance clients know what they want, so I always experience good moments with them. There are a lot of clients which over the years keep coming back and for a therapist it’s really interesting to work with clients over longer periods.

 

What do you love about the island? 

Its beauty and its variety – one day it’s an early morning, energising swim in aguas blancas, the next day, it’s a crazy afternoon party on a beach. I also love to cook a lot and work in the garden.

 

How do you maintain your own personal balance? 

For me, personal balance includes sport, having a good diet (every morning warm lemon juice on empty stomach, followed by porridge only with water, then a couple of cups of green tea). Although I do also love my chocolate… What do you see in Ibiza’s future?

Ibiza has changed lot since I arrived. Over the past three years the island has got much more busy, but it is still possible to find your peace here.

 

Passion: deep tissue massage 

Mission: to make a real difference to clients through massage 

Belief: balance includes exercise, diet and chocolate!

Style: skilled, strong masseuse 

Character: trained in excellence

The power of Cupping Therapy

Cupping is well known as pain relief and as a combination with other treatments such as Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Sports Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Detoxification Massage, Anti-Cellulite Treatments or General Wellbeing.

MedSpa Ibiza: Cupping Therapy

The effect of Cupping

-The vacuum formed by Cupping draws up the old non-circulating stagnant blood and sticky fluids from the area, bringing them up to the surface and away from the injury, so that healthy free circulation can be restored to the affected area, thus creating space for oxygen, living cells and nutrients for faster recovery.

-Where there is dead, static blood, lymph, cellular debris, pathogenic factors, and toxins present in the body, Cupping can leave marks which indicates that the stagnation or disease has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface.

-A vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.

 

Forms of Cupping

  • Facial Cupping
  • Wellbeing Cupping
  • Pedi Cupping
  • Orthopedical Cupping
  • Abdominal Cupping
  • Thai Massage Cupping
  • Sports Massage Cupping
  • Sinusitis and Jaw
  • Detoxification Cupping
  • Lymphatic Drainage Cupping
  • Triggerpoint Massage Cupping
  • Myofascial Cupping

 

Massage Cupping

Is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending  on the type of cups being used. The intended suction can range from light to heavy. This, along with the movements performed and areas treated by the therapist will produce stimulating (toning) or sedating (draining) effects.

 

Bruises after Cupping

The most common misunderstanding regarding one of the most powerful and beneficial after effects of Cupping, is the marks that sometimes result.  When injuries occur deep in the muscle, bleeding often occurs causing deep bruises. There will also be edema in the area involving the coagulation of sticky proteins. The combining presence of these elements usually results in stagnation of circulation to the area – resulting in pain, dysfunction, and chronic conditions.

 Once you understand what these marks are, and feel the results – the concerns disappear!

 

Recover your skin after summer with special peelings

Chemical peelings are typically used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, sun-damaged skin.

There are three main types of chemical face peel, and each has unique benefits for the skin. The light chemical peel improves acne scars and skin texture, and reduces the effects of sun damage. The medium chemical peel improves acne as well and also smoothes fine surface wrinkles, and corrects pigment problems such as age spots. The deep chemical peel helps treat sun-damaged skin, eliminates deep, coarse wrinkles, and can remove pre cancerous growths.

 

MedSpa Chemical Peelings options:
– Anti- Acne
– Anti-Ageing
– Hydration
– Depigmentation
