Relaxing*

Long considered one of the main ingredients to healthy living, massage in the Ayurvedic tradition maintains suppleness of the body within and without while aligning the mind with deeper states of being and nourishing us on all levels.

Full-body Massage

Working on the whole body, front and back, this massage relaxes the muscles and tissues of the body while opening the energy lines or nadis, to create a smooth, connected flow of energy throughout the whole system. Working on individual parts of the body and the body as a whole it soothes and revitalizes the mind, body and senses. 

Duration 1 – 1½ hrs

Back marmas

Marma Massage

This treatment focuses on the energy points (as used in acupuncture) to release any blockages and bring renewed life-force into parts of the body. The marmas are junctions or meeting points of the five organic principles: muscles, vessels, ligaments, bones and joints. They form the seats of energy or points where energy can easily enter and leave the body and offer special pathways to affect specific organs, tissues and doshas. This massage works physically on the deeper currents of energy in the body restoring a deep sense of well-being. 

It is a whole body treatment where the marma sites and channels connecting them are opened and warmed up through oil massage and then worked on specifically to release and energise.

Duration 1½ – 2 hrs

Basti Treatment

Basti means bladder or something that holds, and in this therapy warmed oils are used to penetrate deeply into the body by using a dam made of dough to hold the well of oil in place. This allows the oil to nourish and strengthen the associated muscles, nerves and bones in a particular area in a way not normally achieved through massage. It has very profound effects.
