My family spent 4 days in Grazalema last year. While daughter and son-in-law climbed mountains; my sister and I wandered around the town shop and drank coffee in the many cafes. I had had spinal stenosis surgery which left my muscles tense and sore, and me with a residual limp and a twisted gait. I woke up every morning having to force my limbs to move. To kill time, I decided to try Tui Na massage (traditional Chinese massage) at the Wellness Spa a few blocks from our house. I didn't expect much for results since I'm a born skeptic...pessimist. The practitioner, Hernando, speaks only Spanish and I, Brazilian Portuguese, but we could understand each other. I modestly decided to have the back side of me massaged. Hesitantly, I took off all but panties. Oil is used in the massage, so probably keeping on clothing wouldn't be a great idea. Hernando asked how much force I wanted him to use, and because of my spinal surgery, I said nao muito (no mucho). He worked for a solid hour, telling me correctly where my muscular and articulation problems were. I paid a reasonable fee and, feeling not much different, went home to drink a lot of water, as he suggested. I thought...Whatever...it was a good experience, anyway. WELL, I woke up the next morning and got out of bed without a struggle. I WAS SHOCKED! I was so amazed by how good I felt that I made an immediate appointment for that same day to go back and have the front side of me worked on...modestly draped in a (somewhat small) towel. Even more amazing is the fact that the effects of that massage have lasted for months, more than 10 months. I'm only now trying to find a Tu Na practitioner in Massachusetts to relieve stiffness and pain that has crept back, but never as bad as originally.…

My husband and I both hard massages from a trained reiki masseur. He was amazing. We then used their amazing spa with lots of jets. Pool temperature perfect to be able to stay in for 1 hour.

We enjoyed an excellent massage by Paco. The area by the pool is lovely decorated in spanish design, but rather small. I would‘nt visit just for jacuzzi and steam room. But the combination with massage is a good deal.

The decoration/ambience was good, the sauna and pool excellent, but the showers were a non-event, and the leg and foot massage wasn´t working. The changing room left a lot to be desired, as there was only one door with a lock, which was the toilet, so I had to change there. there was nowhere to sit, and no shower for rinsing as I have used in other spas. On the plus side, it wasn´t crowded, and they do provide everything you need if you don´t take it, including bathing clothes.…
