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

Ayurveda treats the whole body, mind & emotions. The rhythmic motion of the massage helps with muscle & joint stiffness and mobility. Blood circulation is increased & the removal of toxins from the body is accelerated. Other treatments aim to soothe and relax as well as to calm and focus the mind.

It is said that the Ayurvedic system provides the most comprehensive therapeutic structure for massage in the world.

Virginia is an amazing therapist. She takes the time to find out why I am seeking her help. This itself is unusual in today’s busy world. She is very professional and certainly knows her stuff. She has helped me to reduce pain from an arthritic hip with a series of vasti treatments. She also helped me with long standing sleep difficulties by a 2 hour shirodara session- that was sublime!
