During the treatment patients must lay on a professional massage couch; they are then gently massaged with scented oil chosen according to their preferences and type of skin. The body parts that haven’t been massaged and those already massaged are covered with a cloth not to create temperature leaps. This technique includes gentle and relaxing strokes as well as vigorous pressure-point stimulations.
