Abhyanga/Traditional Ayurvedic Massage
Abhyanga Massage is a therapeutic Ayurvedic Massage using warm medicated oils which heal and detoxify the Mind, Body and Soul. Compared to other styles of massage, Abhyanga is very unique as the whole treatment is tailored according to your individual dosha/constitution. Medicated aromatic oils and specific techniques are selected which help to release physical, mental and spiritual toxins plus deeply penetrates into the muscles and cells.
Benefits of Abhyanga:
- Rejuvenates the whole body
- Nourishes the mind and body
- Restores balance in the mind, body and soul helping to relieve stress
- Increases longevity
- Detoxifies the body on all levels
- Calms the nerves and benefits sleep
- Strengthens the Dhatus (the body's tissues) and lubricates the joints
- Tones and prevents stiffness of the muscles
What to expect?
The treatment will begin with a short consultation and I will ask some questions in order to determine your dosha type and imbalance, then I will carefully select the oils and plan an appropriate Abhyanga for you. Each Abhyanga begins with an anointment of the 7 Sacred Points and Ohm chanting (optional). Gandharva Veda music will be played during your treatment which is the eternal music of nature and your treatment will close with the healing sound of a singing bowl. Try Swedana/Steam Therapy after your treatment to receive optimal benefits.
Swedana/Steam Therapy is a companion treatment following an Abhyanga as it helps the medicated oils penetrate further into the tissues. When having a Swedana your body temperature increases and the tissues of your body open allowing impurities to move from deep within the tissues and as the tissues open up toxins/ama are expelled through the skin. A Swedana can help to improve circulation, reduce inflammation and promotes healing.
What to expect?
Following your Abhyanga you will be asked to sit in the steam box within the treatment room, keeping your head out and you will remain there for around for around 10-20 minutes. Afterwards you can wipe the sweat/oil away with a dry towel.

What My Clients Are Saying:
I took a scenic drive to Cockatoo for an Ayurvedic massage/holistic healing session that turned out to be the best Abhyanga I've ever had! (and I've had several good ones in India and Bali) It was so much more than a massage though, Laura made it into a divinely therapeutic experience that left me feeling nurtured and nourished. Traditional Ayurvedic oils infused with medicinal herbs matched to my dosha were used that smelt & felt amazing. Indian flute and classical Indian instrumental tunes were playing throughout my massage as I floated off into a state of bliss! Care & thought was taken into the finer details: the ambience of the room, a beautiful bowl of water with rose petals lay in my eye view under me, sound healing with a Tibetan bowl at the end, followed by a lovely shower with organic products and a Vata balancing herbal tea at the end of my massage. Overall the pressure and massage techniques used seemed perfectly attuned to my needs as I felt my whole body and nervous system calmed & rebalanced. Definitely worth the drive out to this gorgeous Cockatoo sanctuary. Highly recommended. – Aparna
I had a wellness massage with Laura & I feel well! Even after cleaning the floors & up a bit at night, I'm feeling good. I've already booked in again. Thank you Laura. – Cindy-Lee
My session with Laura came about at a time when I needed it most. It was such a privilege to have the session in the comfort of my own home and the slow pace of how we began helped accelerate my healing before the massage even started, as if my body needed to slow down so desperately, this was the first call and it was answered with kindness and grace.
Then the massage began and I found myself falling asleep three times during the luxurious two hours, I was so relaxed... The oil was so gentle and calming on the skin. The techniques Laura used were absolutelyincredible. I loved how she even spent time on the face, which is a place quite frequently ignored and such an important one at that.
A truly healing experience. She is a master in this field. I would recommend Laura to anyone and everyone looking for relaxation, healing and grounding. - Tara
