Massages inspired by Zagreb


After spending 4 years in Losinj in Istria, aroma therapist and economist Anamarija Pažin Morović has come back to Zagreb to show to us and to the world her concept that was recognised as an amazing institution worth to the development of wellness and tourism, Laurus Slow Spa.

Anamarija had a vision of Laurus Slow Spa as a place where you can come and relax in the most easiest way possible and it has 4 types of treatments: massages Uspinjača and Go green Maksimir and facial treatments Zagrebačke frajle and Grička vještica. With that in offer, they still have hair dying with pigment leaves like hibiskus or nut shell.

BEAUTY INSPIRED BY NATURE

“Anything in nature can serve us as a beauty product. When we find some time for ourselves, we go back to those earthly habits that give us a lot of quality and long results when it comes to aromatherapy. Anamarija’s been in it for 15 years now. Along side her new project, Anamarija is also teaching in a few schools and collages, and she has developed her new series of home scent, Spa Sense. Whatever she does, was it mixing oil for a massage session or making a mask for a facial treatment, Anamarija is using the best products she can, all out of Croatia. From her series of basic oils, she uses cold apricot, grapes, olives, almond oils… and from her series of volatile oil there are immortelle, lavender, rose, laurel, rosemary…

FUNICULAR (USPINJAČA)

Out of all of those picks, I couldn’t have decided what to choose to present it, but in the end I have decided for (Funicular) Uspinjača, a massage treatment that relaxes and revitalizes, so you can go back to the office afterwards and continue to preform as always until the end of the day. Uspinjača involves, foot massage, back and head massage. For the body to be relaxed, but not distracted from its work, they use apricot, bergamot and sweet orange oil along with cold apricot oil. Entire story starts with the foot massage, continues with back massage and ends with head massage, with a help of a hot towel. Although it probably does sound unorthodox, it was very relaxing and enjoyable massage. During a head massage, they use incense that eventually helps the body to be much more relaxed.

After 40 minutes of relaxation, I felt reborn although few nights earlier I haven’t slept really well, and few days earlier I had a lot of meetings and I really needed it.

The entire treatment was wrapped up with a cup of their finest tea and a very nice conversation. 2 things are for sure: my comeback to Laurus, and Zagreb has gain an amazing space with amazing host that will help you relax like never before on the most natural way possible.
