And the perfect "loving" touch to release the flow of subtle physical and mental energy to give a lasting sense of relaxation.

Ayurvedic medicine is the oldest medicinal system in the world that originated in northern India over 5,000 years ago.

It includes a system of herbalism similar to traditional Chinese medicine, but offers dietary regulation, yoga and other exercises, bodywork and detoxification.

What to Expect in a Treatment:

An Abhyanga Massage includes a detailed assessment of health and wellbeing before treatment and to establish your Dosha type (body type) This is a unique pattern of living force and energy that controls various activities of the body. These Dosha's (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) can become inbalanced and can cause sickness, disease and general health issues. 

Once the therapist knows which dosha imbalance is present in the body, the therapist will choose the appropriate dosha aromatherapy oil to be used in the treatment. The chosen oil is then heated and will remain warm throughout your massage.  

The music, the aroma, the heating, the lighting will all reflect your dosha needs that are present on the day of your treatment.

You will then be asked to relax on the massage bed and you will receive a deeply relaxing head, neck and shoulder massage, face, chest, abdomen, arms and legs and finally the back. Using heated warm dosha aromatherapy oil relaxing strokes, pressure points (Marma points) and intuitive flowing movements that work on the skin and muscles of the body.

At the end of the massage you will be covered in warm blankets, allowed to rest, allowing the oils to absorb into the skin, while a fresh herbal tea and snack is provided specifically made for your dosha is brought to you. You are then asked to take your time to come off of the massage bed, change and enjoy your tea and snack.
