Health tourism has become increasingly popular in recent years. For this reason, there are tourist municipalities, such as San Bartolomé de Tirajana, in the south of Gran Canaria, which have taken the trouble to adapt their infrastructures and offer a wide range of services to enjoy the best relaxing massages to treat different ailments or muscular pains.
Lopesan Hotel Group is one of the leading hotel chains in the Canary Islands that responds to the needs of its clients with specialised services within wellness tourism, in an exclusive environment, to promote serenity and relaxation with a wide range of relaxing massages in Gran Canaria.
In addition to all this, there is a privileged climate all year round. So much so that several international organisations consider Maspalomas to have one of the healthiest and most favourable climates in the world.
You should know what types of relaxing massages you can receive on the island to combat stress; specifically, at the Om Spa Lopesan Costa Meloneras centre. These facilities, with 3,500 square metres, offer different areas for treatments with the aim of achieving harmony, personal wellbeing and feeling much more relaxed.
Deep tissue massage is characterised mainly by relieving muscular disorders and reducing anxiety. The movements that are applied manage to eliminate overloads and joint pain. Moreover, the effects will be noticed in a very short time and people will feel a very pleasant and pleasurable sensation.
It has been proven that muscle health is related to relaxation. Therefore, this complete relaxing massage promotes personal wellbeing. By helping to release dopamine, endorphins and serotonin, the person will feel less stressed.
This therapy is also highly recommended for athletes. In fact, there is research, published in the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, which recommends these massages to prepare athletes for high competition, because it improves their performance and reduces the risk of injury.
This is another option available for those looking for a complete relaxing massage. Two therapists will work together from head to toe to release the accumulated burdens.
Wellness professionals recommend paying special attention to certain areas of the body, such as the head, neck, facial nerves, circulation in the legs and feet. It is necessary to counteract the negative effects that occur in the neck, circulation in the legs or fluid retention, among other conditions, which make us feel tired.
Today’s fast-paced life is also characterised by a sedentary lifestyle. Many hours in front of the computer screen, in bad posture, or constantly using the mobile phone, accumulates tensions. That’s why a 50-minute massage is the best medicine to get your joints back to normal.
Among the wide variety of proposals that we find in the Lopesan group, we can also opt for the four hands massage. During a single 50-minute session, two professionals will ensure that the person achieves total relaxation. As the name suggests, four hands of two experts will work in unison to eliminate any possible muscular discomfort.
This alternative therapy requires good synchronisation to achieve the final goal. The masseurs are positioned opposite each other to execute movements with great technical precision and to distribute the energy correctly over the body.
This method of Hindu origin is part of holistic medicine and it is common to use specific essential oils with appropriate music to disconnect from daily stress. These massages are particularly suitable for those who suffer from anxiety or insomnia.
This technique originates from Hawaii and offers a number of physical and mental benefits to the body. It allows the person to be in harmony with him/herself. Lomi Lomi massage is a practice that stimulates certain areas of the body through appropriate manipulation.
One of the biggest problems, especially in western society, is the lack of balance between mind and body. For this reason, the masseur, specialised in this therapy, will take into account the emotions and feelings of the person to achieve the desired result.
One of the main variations of this massage is the use of hot basalt stones to be placed on energy points or specific areas to stimulate relaxation and relieve localised pain. In addition, in some cases, the practitioner will not only use hands and fingers, but will also use elbows, arms or feet to achieve his or her goal.
These are some of the proposals that you can find in the magnificent facilities of the spa, located in the Lopesan Costa Meloneras hotel, in the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana. However, there are also relaxing massages for couples, for mums-to-be, lymphatic drainage or the quirogolf massage, among a large number of options, depending on the needs of each user.
After enjoying a swim in the sea and a good dose of sun, there is nothing better than a good disconnection at the Om Spa Costa Meloneras by Lopesan. This is the best alternative for guests to relax in one of the most prestigious international centres for its quality and variety of services.
In conclusion, Gran Canaria island has an infinity of health services and great professionals to guarantee the best experience for tourists. Furthermore, we cannot overlook its great tourist attraction and top quality accommodations, such as the Lopesan Group hotels. For this reason, visitors can enjoy their stay to rest, have the best relaxing massages and get to know all the attractions that this “mini-continent” has to offer.
