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 and emotions.  The rhythmic motion of the massage helps with muscle and joint stiffness and mobility. Blood circulation is increased and 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.

After a discussion about your health and well being your treatment will be completely holistically tailored for you as an individual and will aim to leave you feeling balanced, relaxed and refreshed. The oil used is warm sesame oil, Ayurveda uses more oil than western massage methods. The oil will be warm. Following the treatment you will have time to rest and relax.
