FEEL LIKE A GODDESS WITHIN
History reveals that Ancient Greeks attached great importance to “beauty”, personified as a sacred gift in goddess Aphrodite. In Athens, during the 7th century, societies experimented with a range of olive oil elixirs infused with essences of Greek herbs, flowers and fruits, for their beneficial properties on balancing the soul in the body and moisturising the skin. At Soma Spa we draw the inspiration from Greek traditions and apply them with modern state of the art techniques on facials and body therapies. The “fathers” of medicine, Hippocrates and Asclepius, utilized a range of herbs and flowers, in olive oil and laurel oil, to treat body conditions, using simple massage techniques, known as “masso” at the time. Although kneading came from the Far East, it first appeared in Ancient Greece in 800 BC, where it perceived a status of medical importance.
