Massage inspired by Ayurveda is totally holistic and aims to help to rebalance you and leave you with a sense of relaxation, rejuvenation and well being.

Ayurvedic massage treats the whole body. It leave the skin soft and glowing. The rhythmic motion helps with muscle and joint stiffness and mobility. Blood circulation is increased and the removal of toxins from the body is accelerated. It is said that the Ayurvedic system provides the most comprehensive therapeutic structure for massage in the world. This is because it is tailored uniquely to you as an individual.

After completing a short questionnaire we will discuss your health and well being and how you are feeling as well as how you want to feel after your treatment. Your treatment will be completely holistically tailored for you as an individual and will aim to leave you feeling balanced, relaxed and refreshed. The treatment will include use of specific Indian herbal oil blends appropriate for you. The oil will be warm. During the treatment I will massage specific pressure points (marma points) in the body to release the flow of energy.

I will contact you a couple of days after your treatment to see how you are feeling.

A course of a few treatments is recommended. To encourage this a discount is available for booking a course of treatments in advance. Details given on booking.
