Our Massage Tip
Consider going for detox massage that is not only relaxing but also aids your body in the removal of toxic waste. A detox massage can be of great support to any cleansing program you are in. It can address health conditions including fatigue, headaches, fibromyalgia, and other system dysfunctions that result from the presence of toxins in your body.
A detox massage is helpful because of the rhythmic strokes that your therapist apply to stimulate your body. The therapist uses a combination of massage movements including irregular and altering applications of pressure that gently compress and stretch your muscle tissues.

About wellbeing in Ibiza: Interview Anika Hölting, Founder Ibiza Balance
After years working as a physiotherapist and wellbeing expert in hotels, spas and cruise liners, and further years spending travelling and studying in different countries, Anika was looking for a place that would combine a healthy lifestyle and the sunshine of the south. She fell in love with the island, the people and its energy and came to Ibiza in 2003.
Why do you think Ibiza is such a draw for health and wellness?
Ibiza is becoming a heaven for international jet-setters who lead fast-paced lives, travel all around the globe and work hard, seven days a week, for the majority of the year. And of course, that’s because the island is the ultimate place to let off steam, to eat well and to party, but it’s also because it’s now considered the perfect destination for rest, relaxation, and kickstarting a fitness. So whether you’re looking for a week of complete and utter blissed-out indulgence, or you’re looking to detox, iron out niggling body issues or start on the path to fitness, the island is the place to do it, and the team at Ibiza Balance are the people you need to call to help make it happen.
How do you stay on the cutting edge of treatments?
Much of my training took place in Europe and Asia. I’m constantly on the lookout for the most up-to-date developments and frequently attending seminars and workshops to further my knowledge of medical and lifestyle treatments. My current focus is in the areas of osteopathy, yoga and medical spa treatments.
Do you experience very high expectations from visitors to the villas for villa packages?
Yes of course, clients renting a villa and spending their most important time oft he year, holiday with family and friends, want to make sure, that all is perfectly arranged and taken care of.
Ibiza Balance brings their entire professional spa set-up directly to the home or villa, creating customised day packages and wellness retreats designed with you in mind.
A variety of packages are available, or the team can design a bespoke experience to suit you. You can opt to have the spa set up anywhere you like – by the pool, in a tranquil bedroom, in a chillout hut, on the deck of your boat, and the team can work with groups or single people at a time – and Ibiza Balance bring everything needed with them, from beautiful towels, relaxing oils and beauty products, massage tables and music, setting up, cleaning up and packing up before and after the experience. The only limit is your imagination, and all you have to do is enjoy…

Highly recommended is the Ibiza Balance signature massage, combining eastern and western techniques adapted to your needs.
What are some common concerns or questions you get from clients?
Most bookings, especially for villas, are massages for group of friends and family or couples, at sunset or morning times who want to enjoy the villa and just relax. To be time-efficient our Spa concierge organises several therapists who work parallel for groups.
What are the most popular treatments?
‘Villa Welcome Package’ – a simple massage for yourself and villa guests on arrival to help ease you into your Ibiza holiday
Does the Vitamin Drip really cure an Ibiza Hangover?
Vitamindrip® Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy is a treatment that enriches your body with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants; before, during and after all of life’s draining activities.
With IV Vitamindrip® the nutrients enter your bloodstream directly and immediately help the body begin healing itself. Your cells receive a much higher concentration of nutrients when delivered directly via intravenous therapy, thus allowing your body to better absorb and utilize these nutrients and feel empowered again.
What trends in wellness will we see in 2016?

MedSpa Ibiza in the heart of Botafoch offers HydraFacial® treatments to men and women of all ages, skin colours and types.

Can you tell us any fun stories about your experiences or any wild requests from clients?
The Ibiza Balance Team is always from new surprised about extraordinary requests from clients such as Yoga morning sessions on a yard infront of Formentera. As well we receive a lot of requests from groups, renting a villa who want to create relaxing moments for their friends and book wellbeing days with yoga and massage at the pool, followed by IV Therapy by our medical doctor, to get recharged for the day after the party. Private drivers bring clients to our permantent location at MED SPA Ibiza to get time-efficient treatments such as HydraFacial®, Vitamindrip®, follwed by an energising massage

We develop a personalised wellbeing plan from personal training and yoga exercises to medical services and detox programs.

What is a typical day like for you in the high season vs. the low season?
In high season our day starts quiet early, at 8h morning latest. Our trainers and therapists are already on the way to villas and boats, as clients like to be finished with health and wellbeing programs till midday, so they have time to enjoy the beach or seaside programs. Usually the morning and evening times after the beach and before dinner are very busy and highly demanded, too. Many clients already book weeks in advance to make sure they needs are taken care of.
In low season I enjoy island-health offers such as pilates and yoga retreats in different venues, having my juice or raw food breakfast at healthy restaurants
Can you tell us a few of your favourite spots on the island, for food,drink, shopping relaxing?
I like „Passion Cafe“ or „Wild Beets“ for healthy food, wellbeing and drinks for breakfast and lunch. Fish Restaurants such es Sa Caletta or Sushi at Harbour Club. Shopping in Ibiza’s small streets for individuals.
What do you do to stay healthy?
Living healthy is a big part of my life. I do my daily workouts, mostly early in the moring starting around 7am with one hour condition training such as cicling or running. Parallel im practicing yoga and pilates. We have every morning cold-pressed juices in the house. For my wellbeing & relaxation I do every week a 90minutes massage such as deep tissue with the Ibiza Balance Team. Once a month I receive a ®, Vitamindrip® for the immune system and HydraFacial for a healthy looking skin.
