Baron Gozo Blog


Posted on 23 November 2016

We live increasingly busy and stressful lives and our holidays are precious, allowing us to take time out to relax with family and friends. But it can sometimes take a while to switch our busy minds off.

Some people can get into the holiday mood straight away but we understand that others might benefit from a pair of professional helping hands – this is where our range of in-house services, including massages can really help you unwind.

We all need pampering from time to time and it actually does us good. Self-care plays an important role in helping to reduce and prevent a range of problems, including stress, anxiety, stiffness and headaches. A pampering session, away from our phones and computers is a great way to calm the brain and soothe a tired body. It has more recently been called a “digital detox”.

As well as helping our guests to make the most of their stay on Gozo with varied activities, our Baron Experience service includes some special in-house services designed to help you to chill out properly at your Baron holiday home.

Professional massage by the pool

We know our guests love to soak up the Gozitan sunshine by the pool. But how about combining this with a body massage to really relax?

The Baron Massage service can be booked via our website and you can choose to have a either a masseur or masseuse. Our professional team bring their massage beds and other equipment to your Baron holiday home and you can opt to have a massage by the pool, or in the shade indoors, away from the children.

A range of different massage styles are available:

  • Swedish massage

 This is a classic and deeply relaxing type of massage which works on the joints and   muscle tissue.

  • Oriental massage

Combining Swedish and Thai massage techniques, this full body treatment focuses on the head, neck, shoulders, back and arms and is a great stress-buster.

  • Detox massage

This type of massage focuses on stimulating the circulatory system to eliminate toxins from the body.

  • Sports massage

Designed to help the recovery of tired and aching limbs, this massage is ideal for both serious sporty types, as well as holidaymakers who have been active all day!

Hawaiian massage

If you’re looking for something more than a simple massage, then you can book a session with our Hawaiian Massage practitioner who will come to your property. Lomi Lomi Nui is an ancient purifying technique to nurture the body, mind and spirit, using a soothing mix of massage and essential oils. Lomi Lomi Nui relaxation therapy is said to be particularly beneficial for conditions such as work-related stress and insomnia.

  • Individual and Couples massage

You can enjoy a relaxing, therapeutic Hawaiian massage session in your Baron holiday home by booking on our website. To make it extra special – why not consider enjoying this therapy with a loved one? This would make a lovely anniversary surprise.

  • Four hand massage

As the name implies, four hand massage involves two masseurs working together  on one person. This is a powerful therapy and ideally suits people who really have difficulty ‘letting go’ with other forms of massage.

  • Pregnancy massage

If you are starting a family and planning a ‘babymoon’ on Gozo before you get caught up in the whirl of family life, a pregnancy massage would be perfect to help reduce fatigue, and soothe away any aches and pains, so you can enjoy your last holiday as a couple!.
