Traditional Ayurvedic massage therapy is a deeply relaxing, warm oil massage, which uses specific techniques and stimulation of pressure points called marmas. Therapeutically, it can help diagnose and treat specific conditions or more generally promote health and relaxation.

Toxins, stress and negative emotions can accumulate at mama points, manifesting as pain, blockages or swelling. This can be an indication of disease or imbalance.

Following a consultation, oils will be chosen to suit your specific doshic type and to create balance. You can expect to feel very relaxed after your massage, so it’s important to considerer this when planning your time post massage.

Benefits of Ayurvedic Massage Therapy:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Improves the condition of the skin and circulation
  • Stimulates the internal organs of the body
  • Nourishes cells, tissues and energy channels
  • Balances the dosha

Ayurvedic Yoga massage, in comparison, is a deep tissue floor-based massage combining massage, mobilisation, traction of the joints, assisted Yoga stretches and breathwork.

Oil and calamus powder are applied to the body. The powder stimulates the skin, improves blood circulation and provides a mild exfoliating effect on the skin.

Your Ayurvedic Yoga Massage also includes Marma Therapy, as described above.

Benefits of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage:

  • Deep tissue massage to relieve muscular tension and improve the quality of muscles and tendons following injury.
  • Improve circulation, removal of toxins and improve digestion.
  • Improve mobility and range of movement.
  • Improve breathing capacity
  • Induce a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing.

What to expect from your AYM:

  • Following a consultation, we will set an intention for your massage, focusing on a particular area of the body or beginning with a full body, wellbeing massage. Your therapist will work intuitively and through your guidance pausing and working on areas of the body which would benefit from more attention.
  • To gain the full benefits from your Ayurvedic Massage 90mins is recommenced. Allow for 2hours for your first session as we include a consultation.
  • Massage sessions for 45mins can focus on a specific area of the body. The first massage would be 60mins to incorporate a consultation.

Prenatal Ayurvedic Yoga Massage

As a floor based massage, the massage is predominantly received from a side lying position to allow for comfort and relaxation. Traditionally a deep tissue massage, it will be adjusted to suit the needs of your physical and emotional state.

Tension and general aches in the body as a result of postural changes will be eased through massage, joint mobilisation and traction and gentle Yoga stretches.

Nourishing the body and self-care is essential at any stage of your life and is particularly beneficial throughout your pregnancy.  

Prenatal Ayurvedic Massage is a deeply relaxing massage, which will leave you feeling centred, grounded and complexly at ease.

Good health depends on prana, the life force energy, which permeates our bodies and all living objects in the universe. Stress, poor diet and strong emotions can bring prana into a state of imbalance. Massage can balance and normalise the flow of prana.
