ABOUT US

OUR SCHOOL

 

We are a center dedicated to the teaching of the Californian Massage. This type of massage has both healing and liberating properties, yet they are very deep and intense. Californian massages work on both the muscular and the emotional / energetic side of each person. Throughout our teachings we will emphasize on both areas and their interrelations.

The primary objective of the Californian massage is disconnecting each person from their daily life and entering a state of deep relaxation. This is achieved with a deep and careful physical work, and with an integral and constant presence from the masseur, which also involves deep listening of everything that is happening during the massage session.

We will learn to work from the Hara (energy source located in the second chakra) and pay special attention to the postures of our own body, as well as our breathing.
The Californian massage sessions are very unhurried and harmonious, with a fairly slow rhythm and fairly constant pressure. The integration of all this work is fundamental, and we achieve this through long movements, which are a hallmark of this type of massage.

ABOUT US

Susana Papazachariou

I have grown up moving between two worlds, two different cultural backgrounds that have led me to integrate disciplines, styles and ways of seeing life. All this diversity is reflected in my body expression and on how it is transmitted. My academic life begins with studies in Public Relations, continues at the University of Barcelona with Romance Philology and was completed at the University of Crete with those of Modern Greek Language and Literature. During the first stage of my professional life I was a translator-interpreter and then I joined the investment department of a financial institution. Up to this point I had combined working life with dance and yoga studies, and in 2002 I decided to leave the bank to fully dedicate to my passion. My roots and my concern for the culture of the Middle East brought me closer to oriental dance, but always from a personal and multidisciplinary perspective, forged by multiple teachers in different European countries. The experience has led me to interpret a dance resulting from a continuous search between inner evolution and expression, an open and dynamic work in progress. Currently, my focus is on a synthesis of an organic, conscious and creative movement, which is nourished by professional training in Hilal Dance, Yoga, QiGong and Free and Creative Dance. All this, complemented with the exploration of other disciplines such as the Butoh, Feldenkrais, Tandava Dance and always accompanied by the special presence of Sufi Dance, an inspiring and path of connection. After this trip I feel the need to transmitting this knowledge and sharing it. www.susanapapazachariou.com
