Unique holiday accommodation in Cadiz, unique experience!
Casa Valdespino is a holiday home in Andalucia but it has a very special experience to offer. It is one of the famous casas senoriales of Grazalema, built in the 18th century and lovingly preserved and restored for modern living. Grazalema is one of thePueblos Mas Bonitos de Espana, the most beautiful villages in Spain. This is a title which is very hard to win and hold onto as the village has to keep improving each year and demonstrate its commitment to Spanish heritage, and the culture and history of Andalucia and Spain.
Casa Valdespino has its own unique way of making your holiday in Grazalema extra special! We have our own qualified resident holistic therapist and yoga teacher. Book a class or treatment in our beautiful gallery space overlooking the surrounding mountains and enjoy your choice of therapy or yoga experience in the tranquillity of the Sierra de Grazalema.

45 minutes of pure bliss. The treatment starts with a foot soak in natural salts or oils, followed by a moisturising foot scrub to help remove hard skin and a file of any rough areas. A firm massage with stretches of the lower legs and feet follows, bringing relaxation and easing tired feet. The reflexes of the feet are worked either with the fingers or the Thai Foot Stick to bring about energetic balance and wellbeing. This is an ideal treatment for walkers, cyclists and yoga students!
Eastern Facial Massage - 30 euros
A massage incorporating the neck, face and scalp, using techniques drawn from Japanese anma massage traditions to balance the energies of the facial meridians and tsubo or acupuncture points to achieve balance in the face, but also the internal organs, muscles, soft tissues and skin of the whole body. Suitable for both men and women, this blissful therapy balances ki, or life force, to improve overall health. It gently stimulates the nervous system to increase blood and lymph circulation, reduce and prevent wrinkles, repair and balance the condition of the skin, minimize the ageing process, and leave your face looking healthy and feeling great.
Please arrive for your treatment without any makeup on. The massage can be carried out with oil or cream or without any massage medium, according to your own preferences. The treatment time is 30 minutes.
Japanese Hand Massage - 30 euros
Shiatsu has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine and Anma, a traditional Japanese form of massage. The philosophy underlying Shiatsu is that vital energy (Qi in Chinese, Ki in Japanese) flows throughout the body in a series of channels called meridians. For many different reasons Ki can stop flowing freely and this then produces a symptom. Shiatsu can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions, from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health.
Shiatsu for the hands uses touch to affect the flow of Ki in the meridians of the hands and arms. Techniques include gentle holding and pressing with palms, thumbs and fingers on the meridians. As the quality of the Ki changes, the symptoms associated with an imbalance in the movement of Ki will gradually improve. Shiatsu is a therapy that works on the individual as a complete being - the physical body and also on an emotional and/or mental level.
Anyone who has ever experienced a good hand massage will sigh with pleasure at the recollection. Our hands are one of the most overused parts of our body and work very hard, but in general they are sadly neglected. Even if we visit a salon for a treatment we will often only leave with beautiful nails and will probably have missed one of the greatest little physical luxuries one can experience - a hand massage. A good hand massage will help tremendously to de-stress you, open energy channels and create a feeling of well being.
This is a fantastic treatment for clients who drive a lot, use a computer or text frequently, artists, musicians - anyone with hands that need 30 minutes of tender loving massage! The treatment can be carried out with oils, cream, lotion or without any massage medium if you wish.
Our therapist Sarah Collins is a Reiki Master Teacher with over 12 years' experience of giving Reiki treatments and teaching students. She has trained in both the Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki styles and her treatments use techniques which will help you achieve deep relaxation and make contact with your own feelings, thoughts and emotions to bring about calm and healing.
You will have a consultation before your treatment begins and this is your opportunity to talk to the therapist and explain which issues you want the treatment to address. You will be asked whether you would like crystals, gemstones and essential to be used and if so you will be invited to touch, smell and handle the oils and crystals to help you choose the ones which appeal to you.
A one hour treatment costs 40 euros.
If you would like to learn Reiki then ask Sarah at Reiki Energy about her courses - she teaches in Spain and in the UK.
Reflexology Treatments - one hour, 40 euros
Reflexology is a treatment of the feet or hands (or both), incorporating massage techniques to relax you along with focused work on the reflexes relating to the organs and tissues of the body to bring about energetic balance and help the whole person to function as well as possible.
Your feet (and hands) contain reflexes which map the whole body, and by working them we give you a whole body balancing session to aid homeostasis and bring increased wellbeing and calm.
A full consultation is carried out with the therapist to identify medical and other issues and this is your chance to explain what you want from your treatment and tell the therapist about any allergies, injuries or other things she needs to know.
Your treatment starts with a foot soak and scrub using natural salts, soaks and lotions to make your feet soft and comfortable. You then make yourself comfortable on the couch for the rest of your session. A gentle massage starts the treatment before the reflexes are worked. The therapist may then return to some areas to focus on reflexes which would benefit from more work. The close of the treatment is a soothing massage and some energy work to bring you back to yourself.
The reflexology is carried out with cream, lotion or balm to suit your preferences. We offer you a selection to choose from.
Maternity Reflexology is offered for clients who are having a baby (after the first trimester). We also offer treatments for the post natal period and for couples and individuals who are trying to conceive.
