Offering a wide range of services including:
Shirodhara is a deeply relaxing treatment, unique to Ayurveda. It begins with a hand and foot massage, followed by a constant stream of warm medicated oil directed onto the forehead for 30 mins. This is then followed by an invigorating head and shoulder massage, leaving you deeply relaxed but alert. Ideal for people suffering from insomnia, anxiety, depression, stress, migraines, or hormonal issues.
Ayurvedic massage or 'abhyanga' is a full body, warm oil massage that uses the skin as a vehicle for delivering medicated herbal oils to the body. Therapeutic strokes are designed to release tension from the muscles and fascia, whilst simultaneously redirecting toxins and impurities back to the digestive system for elimination. Special energy points in the body known as 'marmas' can also be incorporated for additional therapeutic benefit. This style of massage incorporates both sides of the body, and finishes with an invigorating head massage, leaving you both relaxed and alert.
Kati basti is a musculo-skeletal technique unique to Ayurveda. It is useful for conditions such as frozen shoulder, back pain, spondilitis etc, and involves the construction of a special dough based 'well' or 'basti' that is placed over the affected area and filled with heated, medicated oil. The temperature of the oil is slowly increased to 50 degrees, with this temperature maintained for 20-25 mins, and finishes with a therapeutic back massage.
