Ayurvedic Massage (Abhyanga)
A sublime full body massage from India that honours your individuality. Each massage will vary according to specific needs..... There is a focus on bringing all the qualities an individual requires for balance in life. For some, the style of massage will be nurturing, grounding, calm, warm and tranquil. For others, it may be stimulating and vigorous. Others may need a light, soothing and cooling touch. The herbal oils will also vary from person to person and from season to season.
Strength, stamina, health and vitality can be achieved through regular Ayurvedic massage. Abhyanga improves blood and lymphatic flow, loosens tight muscles, cleanses and vitalises the internal organs and calms the mind and nervous system, soothing away anxieties and suppressed emotions.
Synchronised Traditional Ayurvedic Massage
This is treatment provided by two therapists at the same time, massaging in a completely synchronised way.
Muscular - Skeletal Treatment for Pain Relief (Basti)
A specific Ayurvedic treatment to relieve muscular-skeletal pain, stiffness and lack of mobility. During a basti treatment medicated herbal oils are warmed and poured into a receptacle over the site of the pain or stiffness. These oils penetrate deeply into the tissues, softening and loosening tight muscles and joints. A specialised massage is then applied. Hot herbal compresses complete the treatment.
It is an effective treatment for sciatica, frozen shoulder; tennis elbow; pain in the knees, lower back, neck, mid back and shoulder and to release emotional holding.
Ayurvedic Hand, Foot and Head Massage (Hastabhyanga, Padabhyanga and Shirobhyanga)
Ayurveda supports the notion that the whole body is reflected in the feet, hands and head. It is believed that regular foot massage will balance and cleanse the internal organs and soothe an agitated mind. The nervous system is soothed, the body and mind grounded, anxiety and insomnia relieved. The hand massage vitalises the whole being and balances the five elements through the fingertips. These elements of fire, air, water, ether and earth play and integral role in our health and healing according to Ayurvedic healing traditions. Ayurvedic head massage relieves tension through the neck and shoulders, calms and strengthens the brain and expands consciousness.
Padabhyanga, hastabhyanga and shirobhyanga has a focus on promoting a harmonious flow of vital life energy (or prana) through the marmas of the feet, hands and head. The marmas are vital life energy centres that strengthen organs and body functions and can assist in alleviating diseases and imbalances.
