Ayurveda is the 5000 year-old medical system of India. It is also a philosophy that offers keys for creating harmony and balance in life. The theory of Ayurveda is based on the primordial energies of the five elements (ether, air, fire, water, and earth) and of vata, pitta, and kapha—the three basic constitutional types. By applying Ayurvedic theory, the therapist can determine which Ayurvedic massage techniques to use, and how to customize treatments by selecting the proper oils and herbs as well as the rate and pressure of massage strokes, to maximize the benefits for each client. The Ayurvedic practitioner may also advise on positive life choices, general detoxification, relaxation, enhanced spiritual awareness, and gentle exercise.
Ayurvedic acupressure massage (marma)
A general relaxing marma treatment, focusing on head, face, neck and shoulders, hands and feet. Clients can wear loose clothing, and essential oils are used on the massage areas. It is a very relaxing and balancing treatment.
Ayurvedic foot massage
This massage stimulates every organ of the body, and in particular a woman’s womb and reproductive organs.
It increases ojas (energy produced through disciplined practice) and promotes a feeling of deep relaxation, including a feeling of total wellness in the body’s entire system. Massaging the feet, considered together to be one of the five “organs of action” in Ayurveda, relieves insomnia, nervousness and dryness in that area. It also energizes the womb, reproductive organs, belly, pelvis and colon as well as improves overall circulation and fertility. From the Ayvurveda perspective, the best way to heal impairments of the womb is to lovingly care for the feet. Feet are considered the wings of the womb.
Ayurvedic head massage
This incredible hair and scalp treatment is performed with scented herbal oil to nourish the hair, relax the mind and to release tension in the head, neck and upper back area. In addition, it has an overall effect on the whole body as it acts straight on the central nervous system liberating from many stress related conditions like headaches. A selection of marma points, are manipulated to direct the flow of energy in a correct and balanced way thus enabling the release of pain and tension.
