Massages with cirmolo wood in South Tyrol
What the woods of pine have to do with the purification and toning of the body?
The tie is much closer than you might think, because the cirmolo (the name of this kind of wood used to build cabinets and especially for the sauna rooms) has many beneficial properties.
First, the scent of pine stimulates relaxation, and wooden sticks are used during the massage to slow the heart rate, relax muscles and improve blood supply.
Treatment includes the use of arnica alpine oil, which facilitates restorative effect, useful to deal effectively with the challenges of the winter season.
Massages with cirmolo wood are available at the Dolasilla Castle in San Vigilio di Marebbe, in South Tyrol. This Spa is considered a veritable temple of wellness and offers courses aimed specifically at women, since they include peeling and body styling (wrap with anti-cellulite products, and drainage massage) and wellness packages dedicated to men, with the anti-aging face treatment, a service increasingly requested by customers.

Roses, grapes and champagne: the top of wellness
In Italy it isn’t widespread, but the wellness treatment with gold and hyaluronic acid gives incredible effects, easing facial wrinkles and toning the dehydrated skin.
Pure gold 24k, together with the active ingredients of hyaluronic acid, enhances the brightness of the face, not to mention the privilege of being “immersed” in a so precious raw material.
One of the Spas where you can do this treatment is the Giardino di Venere in Dossobuono, near Verona: this Spa offers, in addition to a large catalog of massages and wellness paths, treatment with rose petals and champagne, particularly pleasant due to the anti-aging grape and toning rose properties.
High quality centers are also in Southern Italy, for example in Campania stands Pausilya, in Naples, a wellness center overlooking the sea, specialized in thalassotherapy and thermal treatments.
The waters and mud of Pausilya Therme, in fact, are approved for their healing properties and the staff provides a range of treatments that affect both health and aesthetic beauty, a marriage to be pursued daily.
The source of the Spa is located in a volcanic caldera of Campi Flegrei. It’s amazing to find out that this source is located next to the palace of Donn’Anna, a noble palace dating back to XVII century, and realize that even the ancient Greeks and Romans knew that here the peace and well-being reign over everything.
The meaning of the Greek name Pausilypon, in fact is “peace from troubles”, the peacefulness that Pausilya Therme gives today to its guests.
