We spend our lives hunched over our desks, in the kitchen and the lucky ones...a pair of decks. Lest we forget the importance of good posture and as a result activate something called adrenal ‘fight/flight’ response causing a cascade of stimulatory hormones in the sympathetic nervous system. You can’t blame a bad pillow either, this feeling of anxiety, stress and tension in the muscles is all down to us loving, working and playing on a variety of devices. Acupuncture helps stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system – our ‘rest and digest’ response which means it helps to ‘un-do’ all of the stress responses in the body. Meet Katherine Berry – Ibiza’s own psychomechanical technician who in her bulldozer style will ensure that your body is relived of this restrictive feeling of tension and stress through a unique combination of Acupuncture, Cupping and Massage. There is nothing but positive outcomes of acupuncture – stress relief, a natural pain killer and relaxation to help you get on with your day. Cupping is designed to promote blood and lymph circulations and works like a massage but with a pulling technique rather than pushing. Unlike massage though, cupping has an additional benefit of drawing toxins to the surface where they can be expelled via the skin. No doubt relevant for quite a few of us during summer in Ibiza.

The erotic caress.

They say that touch is one of the sense that is most contaminated by memory and that, when we touch our skin with our hands, caress each other or get a massage, we are showing love and awakening the sexual appetite lying dormant in the instinct’s memory. Today, the erotic value of touch is reclaimed by erotic shops that appeal to the body’s fantasies and its capacity to stimulate and be stimulated through the senses. The skin is the body’s largest and most sensitive amatory organ, it is flexible and exciting. That is why erotic boutiques such as Senses Ibiza appeal to erotic touch with water or silicone based lubricants that make it easier for the body to glide, some even enhance orgasm with ingredients such as guarana or caffeine. They also have massage oil, foam and edible body paints; a feast for all the senses and a new world of creativity. From edible massage creams, feathers and erotic toys to unblock your creativity to whips, riding corps, feathers, nipple clamps, belts and collars, masks... A whole world of pleasure through the sense of touch, because the way to discover eroticism is through fantasy and imagination.

Opened two years ago on Calle Extremadura, in Dalt Vila, Senses Ibiza is a new world where you can rediscover sex and reinvent eroticism. We have everything from sensual lingerie to erotic boardgames and even masks and visors that play with light and shadow, or perfumes with pheromones, massage candles and body powders. A universe of new ideas to rediscover eroticism through the senses.
