Therapeutic massage is a massage that, in addition to promoting relaxation, should be seen as a treatment and investment in health, being directed to the specific needs of those who seek it, respecting their individuality and their condition at that moment. The goal of each session is to promote general physical and mental well-being, helping to improve chronic pain and effectively relieving muscle tension and pain. In addition to the physiological effects, the various techniques applied promote a decrease in anxiety, improved sleep and a sense of well-being, among other benefits.
This Massage is characterized by an exclusive combination, and what sets it apart is that, in addition to being a massage that is practiced in a personalized way, the therapeutic massage also uses ancestral techniques such as Cupping Therapy and Moxibustion. In this way, the results will be enhanced by the effects of manual massage combined with the therapeutic techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Cátia Rodrigues, Massage Therapist
Natural from this beautiful city of Lagos, Cátia has been interested in helping others, volunteering and trying to contribute positively for the physical and mental well-being of her community (people and animals). She started massage training in 2009, but it was when she started her practice full time on a daily basis, about 8 years ago, that she deepened her knowledge, producing more and more results. Since then, her goal has been to bring massage to people's lives, and to witness how much it contributes to her clients' daily lives, adding more quality of life, more vitality, clarity and well-being.
In collaboration with specialists in Chinese Medicine, she has been practicing techniques such as Cupping Therapy and Moxibustion, and the results of the combination of both have been increasingly evident, now becoming an integral part of her daily practice in her treatments. Graduated in Massage and Cupping Therapy, and in constant deepening, she also recently started training in Reflexology.
