Ayurvedic massage uses essential oils that are chosen to suit your dosha (Vatta, Pitta & Kapha). The massage techniques used include tapping, kneading & squeezing as well as the more traditional massage strokes you would expect.
The style and flow of the massage is determined by who you are & what your body needs for balance & well-being at the time. An Ayurvedic therapist is trained to focus on the ‘marma points’ - similar to the pressure points in reflexology, acupuncture & acupressure.
The entire body is massaged vigorously with large amounts of herbs & warm oil to cleanse the system of toxins. These treatments have been modified to meet the stresses of the Western world & have powerful effects on the nervous system & mind. They bring a heightened sense of inner peace & awareness along with balance.Back to Treatments.....
