We will use their initial result to adapt your other holistic treatments and your nutrition for the duration of your stay at Marathon Blue. This way we stimulate the dynamic synergy between the different therapies and ensure their balancing, beneficial effect to your body and mind.
  • Three-step Feedback:
  • 1. FOOD & NUTRI-TEST: Food sensitivity test for more than 370 foods and substances • Identifies shortages in nutrients (vitamins, trace elements etc.) • Strengthens tolerability in food phenols. • Detects optimal diet based on blood type.
  • 2. COMPLETE WELLNESS TEST: Determines your biological age, how stressed your body actually is. • Evaluates all body systems (digestive, metabolic, nervous system etc.) and tracks imbalances and sources of strain. • Reviews mental stress and emotional traits. • Suggests acupuncture points to be used.
  • 3. FITNESS TEST: Reevaluates body systems. • Supports musculoskeletal system, including muscles, bones, the 32 vertebrae, 32 teeth, cranial sutures, temporal & mandible joints.
  • MASSAGE TREATMENT: Massage therapy is one of the oldest therapies of human civilization. In ancient China, it meant to be the precursor of acupuncture, in India it was integrated in people’s daily routine, while in ancient Greece it was a standard practice to preserve vitality, improve rest and recovery. Massage therapy combines the alleviating feeling and pleasure of regular massage with the healing effect of therapeutic physical manipulations.
  • Gentle, targeted pressure on anatomic points contributes in four levels: Stress relief, Pain relief, Better circulation, Stiffness reduction
  • ACUPUNCTURE: It is amazing how a few needles, gently set on certain body points, can unblock the flow of energy through the entire body. The chi’s, as this traditional Chinese therapy follows, reacquire their optimal state of balance. In practice, acupuncture:
  • - Stimulates the nervous system, allowing for the release of beneficial substances, such as endorphins.
  • - Tackles pain, altering the way the body feels it.
  • - Unburdens the brain, establishing calmness and tranquility.
  • SCENAR: The neurofeedback regulator (SCENAR) uses subtle signals to activate biological pathways. It is ideal for treating all sorts of pain and inflammation of muscles, joints and bones. SCENAR interacts with the autonomous nervous system, directing it to optimal function, which in turn helps the body to activate its own restoration and regeneration mechanisms.
  • Neurofeedback technology is unique in its simplicity, as it adapts the SCENAR’s pulse to how the body reacts. Thanks to this adaptability, it can can be applied in cases of injury, acute pain, skin and muscle issues, as well as a full-body wellness and anti-ageing stimulator.
