Whole body massage with warm herbal oil.

The word Abhyangam means “everywhere”. Warm herbal oils are applied with a purposeful touch in order to create balance in the body and mind and produce a multitude of beneficial effects.

Abhyangam improves blood circulation, facilitates removal of toxins from the tissues, relieves mental and physical fatigue, improves the functions of the muscular-skeletal system, reduces stiffness and heaviness in the body. It assists the production of white blood corpuscles and antibodies, which provide more resistance against viruses and diseases. 

This helps the defence mechanism in the body and increases immunity towards environmental changes. In this way Abhyangam massage is a protector, preserver and a rejuvenator, increasing self-confidence and will power, so it can be used therapeutically within a therapeutic plan or as an occasional treat.

Benefits of Abhyangam:

  • pain and stress relief,
  • blood pressure modulation
  • improved sleep
  • flexibility
  • resilient immune system
  • emotional balance
  • improved body awareness.

Dosha Abhyangam

Whole body massage with warm herbal oil specific for your ayurvedic constitution.

The Ayurvedic forces of life determine how we feel physically and mentally. The "doshas" - or energetic life forces - determine the entire universe as well as each individual (yourself). There are five elements - water, air, earth, fire and ether - that define the three doshas's : vata, pitta and kapha. What we see is that there is always one dosha or a combination of two dosha's more strongly present in each person, which makes this a unique pattern and explains why we are all different.

This treatment  strives to balance your "doshas" or energetic life forces, different for each person. With adapted herbal oil for each dosha type this treatment purifies, nourishes and relaxes your body and restores the balance on physical, mental, emotional and energetical level. An Ayurvedic massage will soothe, revive and rejuvenate your mind.

Ayurveda-yogin abhyangam

Whole body massage with stretching through several passive yoga asana

Ayurvedic Yoga massage is a unique style of bodywork that combines deep tissue massage with breathwork and Yoga stretching. The deep tissue massage soothes and nourishes the musculature, soft tissues of the body, releases tensions and prepares the receiver for assisted Yoga stretching. Through synchronized breathwork, the receiver is led progressively deeper into assisted Yoga postures that help correct postural imbalance and restore harmony to the body.  Herbal oils are utilized during the treatment for their healing properties. This comprehensive approach to the body dissolves physical and emotional blocks, helps eliminate toxins, promotes correct posture, improves respiratory patterns, enhances energy level and leaves you with a profound sense of wellbeing.

Ayurvedic prenatal and postnatal massage

Gentle whole body massage for the mum and her baby with warm sweet almond oil

Ayurveda considers the prenatal and postnatal period as a moment when the woman should be nurtured with the healing tools of hands, words, food and warm herbal oils. The "ancestral knowing" that touch has a significant effect on our lives and is recognised nowadays by researches showing that skin stimulation may support the mobilisation of "mothering" hormones like oxytocin that enhances the functioning of the placenta among the others, has profound effects on the mother's physiological and emotional reaction to stress that is known to affect the in utero environment and the healthy development of the newborn.

Pregnancy massage is designed to be safe for the mother and the baby, to support better mood and sleep, lowering the blood pressure, support the lymphatic and venous circulation and preparing the body to the experience of labour. The so-called postnatal window (40 days after giving birth) and the first months after giving birth are crucial: the woman goes through profound transformations and she needs support and nourishment in a moment when she is all for taking care of the newborn not considering that the emotional and physical body both needs to find their way back into balance after the experience of labour. The benefits are not dissimilar from what said above with the added value of perceiving to be taken care of.
