Ayurveda - or the 'Science of Life' maintains or restores health from the perspective of the person, not the disease. Using the preventative and curative benefits of food, herbs, movement, treatments and lifestyle changes, it empowers you to take control over your health and happiness without any harmful side effects.
We offer a range of Ayurvedic massage techniques and also Wellness planning consultations.
Full body massage
Full body massage (marma abhyanga) is a tailored holistic treatment using warm medicated oils specific for the individual's constitution. The body's energy flow is re-balanced by activating the body-wide system of marma points (key junctions of the body). Deeply relaxing, detoxifying and tissue nourishing, this treatment improves circulation, strengthens organs, rejuvenates, and aids self-healing.
Head and face massage
Marma point massage for the head (shirobhyanga) and the face (mukabhyanga). Warm medicated oils are chosen to balance the individual or to address specific ailments. Vital points on the scalp, neck, shoulders and face are activated to increase energy, blood and lymph flow. Working with these two complimentary areas the treatment is effective at reducing stress and anxiety, aiding head and shoulder pain and deeply nourishing the scalp and hair.

AYURVEDIC WELLNESS PLANNING
To deal successfully with the inevitability of change requires energy, resilience and vitality.
Making a wellness plan is a sound investment for navigating life's changes, whether that be for a current issue or as a preventative measure.
Wellness consultations consist of an in-depth assessment including the traditional techniques of pulse and tongue diagnostics. From these insights an individualised treatment plan is devised.
Each plan honours Ayurveda's holistic approach and addresses amongst other things toxicity, low digestive abilities, hormonal imbalance and low energy, helping you to reconnect with your body's ability for self-healing.
