The wonderful Rosy’s Little Village on Agistri Island in Greece, about an hour by boat from Athens, is the perfect location for a relaxing, rejuvenating holiday retreat with daily yoga sessions, Shiatsu, as well as Qigong, the gentle meditative Eastern  movement exercises.We still have places available and flights are still very reasonable.

Seated Acupressure massage is a relaxing and invigorating  style of bodywork  adapted from a traditional form of Japanese massage called Anma, Shiatsu and Western Bodywork.

The massage involves work on the back, shoulders, neck, arms, hands and head, specifically targeting those areas susceptible to tension and stress.

This treatment is received fully clothed, while sitting in a specially designed ergonomic chair, which allows the therapist to perform rotations and stretches as well as soothe and rub away any aches and pains. No oils or lotions are used.

Seated Acupressure massage is an immediate stress reliever working to relieve tired, aching and tense muscles as well as creating a sense  of well being and relaxation in short time.

Regular Seated Acupressure Massage can help to

· Promote an overall sense of well-being, calmness and relaxation.

· Unravel tense and aching muscles.

· Relieve minor aches and pains.

· Increase circulation to all parts of the body but especially the back, neck, head, arms and hands.

· Lower anxiety levels.

· Improve memory and mental alertness.
