Take time for yourself to relax, regroup and rebalance with massage, homeopathy, fitness and sauna.
Integrative Bodywork with Carl Zimmerling
Integrative Bodywork addresses and integrates the physical, energetic and emotional levels. It is deeply relaxing and truly invigorating. It creates a feeling of lightness and inner space and encourages ease of movement.
Chronic muscle tension not only inhibits movements but also restricts breathing and the free flow of energy or chi. This gives rise to emotional and creative blocks as well as physical problems. These blocks are addressed on the energetic level by focusing on energy distribution, balance and release. As a result the energy will move more freely through the body.
As energy flow increases, our body tensions begin to soften. That leads to a clear sense of consciousness and a greater capacity for contact and inner joy.
This massage is given by Carl Zimmerling, massage therapist and long time practicioner of Zazen and Tai Ji Quan The bodywork session costs 50 euros and will be given in the dojo, 0,5 km from Monte Rosa for at least 1 hour but usually a bit longer.

Feldenkrais by Laura Monning
The Feldenkrais Method, which is named after the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, is a holistic approach and is based on the emotional state of a person and her or his muscular patterns being intertwined.
Both - the emotional state and the muscular patterns - can stand in one's way of realizing one's dreams and intentions. Be this conscious or unconscious.
Through the practice of specific movement lessons, the Feldenkrais Method facilitates awareness of one's individual patterns and the learning of new ones, so that a person also can act according to choices, rather than just react to a situation.
The benefits of this are noticeable in a vast range of actions, reaching from closing one's shoe to performing highly complex actions as playing a violin or surfing.
A famous quote, on what the method is about, states: making the impossible possible, the possible easy and the easy effortless.
By practicing it, one can improve what he or she is doing already, acquire the ability to do difficult things without straining and learn to do new things altogether.
The Feldenkrais Method can be practiced by everybody. People can explore their own patterns, connect to others and enjoy a playful and safe framing.
