Accompanied by music. Hawaiian ancestral technique.


This is an ancient technique that Hawaiians used for healing. The therapist performs the massage accompanied by music and adapts his routine according to the musical rhythm; like a dance. The technique is most often executed with the forearms; to cover larger parts of the body at the same time. Allowing you to feel equal pressure. Inspired by the fluidity and grace of the ocean’s movements, the constant and powerful energy of a wave. Tips: After the massage, drink plenty of water and take a shower.

Available in 60 minutes only.

Offered in a yurt.



Amma and Shiatsu are very similar. What sets Amma apart from other massages is that it does not requiert oil during the massage. The massaging contact is through a sheet or your own clothes and not directly on the skin; this being part of the legacy bequeathed by the tradition of Japanese massage. With the principle of acupuncture (without a needle), it stimulates the meridians. This massage is a global massage. It works both sides of the body. Both relaxing and energizing; in the eastern sense of the term where we speak of vital energy (internal) and not of external energy. Good to know: The Amma technique is best preactices during a 90 minute massage. At Spa Bolton, we offer this massage also in 60 minutes; as a simplified version.

Available in 60 and 90 minutes.

Offered in yurt, indoor room or outdoor tent in summer.
