Retreats

My work as a Californian Massage therapist is most powerful when it takes place in meditation or personal development retreats. The power of this technique when accompanying a retreat is huge – those who attend meditation, yoga or any other type of interior work retreats will get even deeper and more meaningful benefits. Every year I offer my services in various retreats in the Nerja area.
Do you want to know what some of these meditators think about the sessions during their retreats?

I booked a spa day for my friend's baby shower with Lidia, and the only word to describe it was MAGICAL. Lidia has put so much thought into the experience that she offers, and you feel the love in every detail from the second you arrive, until you leave with the biggest smile on your face. Her gift with massage is one that you feel all the way through to your heart, and I am still feeling the benefits of the massage 4 days later. The food was exceptional, made with love by Juan Carlos, delicious, healthy food with all accommodations for dietary needs considered. Overall, the atmosphere, the energy, the communication and most of all, the warmth from these two wonderful people made the experience absolutely exceptional and I would highly, highly recommend a spa day with Lidia for anyone looking to disconnect, reconnect and just relax in a beautiful setting with wonderful hosts. GRACIAS A LIDIA Y JUAN CARLOS!!

Magic hands and a real good vibe. Lidia is wonderful. She has the massage techniques but makes the impact by zooming into the human behind the client and his/her pains & needs. This was my first time but I will definetely go visit her everytime I鈥檓 in Frigiliana.

The most wonderful massage I鈥檝e had, soft and deep at the same time, let go of so many things, felt happy and light after. I will for sure come back and all my recommendations for Lidias treatment.

I received a Californian massage by the lovely Lidia. Tension and trauma from an old shoulder injury that I got when I fell off a horse many years ago was released. Highly recommended!

La Fascia

Fascia is the fibrous semi-flexible membrane of connective tissue that unites the distinct components of the human body. Within the fascia, small bags are formed that contain the organs of the human body. Mio means muscle. The Miofascia covers, serves as a support, and separates the muscles of the body. Each muscle fibre is wrapped within Mio-fascia, and furthermore, each muscle is also wrapped in Miofascia. The Miofascial tissue has a dynamic behaviour: under tension it augments its density and relative rigidity, giving the muscle greater structural support. As a result of the augmentation of the density generated by the increase of tension, the body becomes more rigid and less flexible, which in turn produces restriction of movement. Generally, these are the result of misalignments and mechanical-postural or functional imbalances, many of which have emotional roots. Deep Miofascial massage addresses the treatment of chronic pain, and also the treatment of lesser pain caused by this lack of flexibility and movement.

La Fascia

La fascia es la membrana fibrosa semiflexible de tejido conectivo que une las distintas componentes del cuerpo humano. Dentro de la fascia se forman bolsillos que contienen los 贸rganos del cuerpo. Mio significa m煤sculo. La miofascia cubre, sirve de soporte y separa los m煤sculos del cuerpo. Cada fibra muscular est谩 envuelta en miofascia y a su vez cada m煤sculo tambi茅n est谩 envuelto en miofascia.

El tejido miofascial tiene un comportamiento din谩mico: bajo tensi贸n aumenta su densidad y rigidez relativa, d谩ndole al m煤sculo un mayor soporte estructural. Como resultado de este aumento de densidad que se genera al incrementar la tensi贸n bajo la que se encuentra una estructura corporal se puede generar rigidez y falta de flexibilidad que a su vez producen incapacidad de movimiento. Generalmente estas son el resultado de desalineaciones o desequilibrios mec谩nico-posturales y funcionales, muchas de ellas con ra铆ces emocionales. El Masaje del Tejido Profundo tiene como foco principal el tratamiento tanto del dolor cr贸nico como el agudo causado por esta falta de flexibilidad e incapacidad de movimiento.
