Treatments

The time stated is for the length of the treatment itself. All sessions are around 15 minutes longer to allow for preparation before treatment, and relaxation after.

Ayurvedic Whole Body Massage (Abhyanga)

1 hour (£50)   ~   75 mins (£60)

Ayurvedic massage is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating for the body and mind. Ayurvedic Whole Body Massage helps to regulate the body's functions. It stimulates organs and tissues to revitalise the system and to help prevent disease from occurring in the body.

Ayurvedic massage is very good for the skin. In Ayurveda the skin as a whole is viewed as an energy centre, and as such it is sensitive and changeable and should be given enough regular nourishment to allow it to function properly.

A whole body massage treatment is a flowing process using warm oil applied to the entire body, and strokes that correspond to the energy channels in the body. Special attention is given to areas of accumulated tension and each treatment is tailored to each person's individual need.

This is a relaxing treatment using medium pressure, but lighter pressure or deep tissue techniques can be used.

More information about Ayurvedic massage can be found here.


Therapeutic Remedial Massage

1 hour (£50)   ~   75 mins (£60)

Therapeutic body massage to release and relieve pain and tension.

This treatment has a specific goal, which is decided before the treatment. This can be to release tension, treat knots in the muscle, ease pain or to target other specific problem areas.

Warm oil is always used to aid with muscle relaxation.

Sports massage techniques are often used, which includes deep tissue and stretching.

Treatment can be combined with the Ayurvedic style of massage or can be adapted to suit the individual.

Can aid recovery from injuries involving muscles, tendons, ligaments and bursa.

Can be a deep tissue massage or a lighter pressure.


Deep Tissue Massage

1 hour (£50)   ~   75 mins (£60)

Focusing on the deeper layers of tissue, this massage helps to release chronic muscle tension, relieve muscular pain, and to break up scar tissue.

This is a deep and very effective massage, tailored to each individual's needs.

Treatment can be combined with the Ayurvedic style of massage or can be adapted to suit the individual.


Reiki Healing

1 hour (£50)   ~   75 mins (£60)

Reiki is Universal Energy that can be directed to promote physical or emotional healing.

In a Reiki healing session, the person can either lie down on a massage couch or sit on a chair, and then the reiki energy is channelled through the hands of the practitioner, and travels to where it is most needed.

This is usually a very calming and soothing treatment and does not require any clothing to be removed.

Reiki can help with mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, and can either be a stand-alone treatment or can be combined with massage.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

30 mins (£30)   ~   45 mins (£40)   ~   1 hour (£50)

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a very light pressure massage, designed to improve the flow of lymph in the body. It can be beneficial where there is excess fluid build-up in the body, in pre and post-operative situations, for migraines, chronic fatigue, recovery from cancer, and for many other conditions.


Ayurvedic Back Massage (Pristhabhyanga)

45 mins (£40)   ~   1 hour (£50)

An Ayurvedic back massage is a deeply relaxing, flowing treatment, which smoothly releases tension and eases aches and pains in the back and shoulders. Special attention is given to areas of accumulated tension and the massage can be extended if a longer treatment is required.

Ayurvedic back massage can provide relief from problems with the cervical and sciatic nerve, and is good for any pain and tightness in the lower back, upper back and between the shoulder blades. This treatment is also good for stress, and is a great post-natal therapy which can be carried out from two or three days after giving birth. This massage can be adapted to include a herbal scrub or a herbal pack oil treatment, and can also include treatment of the energy points on the back.


Ayurvedic Back of the Body Massage (Abhyanga)

1 hour (£50)

Treatment for the whole back of the body, including the legs and feet.

This is equivalent to half of a Whole Body Massage.

Lots of attention given to any areas of accumulated tension.

(Massage for the front of the body is also available, which covers the abdominal area, the arms and the legs only).


Ayurvedic Energy Point Massage (Marma Abhyanga)

75 mins (£60)

Marma points are the energy centres of the body. They are very sensitive places that can be treated therapeutically to heal imbalances and illnesses in the body.

An Ayurvedic Marma Massage is a whole body massage that is traditionally used as a cleansing and detoxifying treatment. It helps to rebalances the body's systems to function most healthily. This helps to prevent physical disease from occuring. Marma massage can help to strengthen organ systems and tissues, regenerate tissues and release mental and physical blockages of energy. It is good for the lymphatic system and for the skin and the eyes. Marma massage can be used effectively to treat specific disorders in the body, and regular treatments are said to delay the onset of ageing.


Ayurvedic Foot Massage (Pada Abhyanga)

30 mins (£30)   ~   45 mins (£40)

Ayurvedic Foot Massage is a wonderful treat for tired feet and legs. It can also help to remove toxins from the body and is traditionally used as a treatment for the digestive system. A foot massage helps to remove excess heat that accumulates in the body. This can manifest as headaches and migraines, high blood pressure, or sleeplessness due to feeling hot in the middle of the night.

Ayurvedic foot massage is an excellent stress reliever and can also help with nervousness, anxiety, palpitations and insomnia. It can help to relieve skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, digestive ailments such as low appetite and problems with the back. It is also used as part of treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis.

As the feet contain energy centres that correspond to the entire body, an Ayurvedic foot massage can have a relaxing and balancing effect on the body as a whole. It can improve blood circulation, help to prevent and treat varicose veins and can also reduce swelling and soreness in the lower leg region.


Ayurvedic Head Massage/Indian Head Massage (Shirobhyanga)

30 mins (£30)

This treatment is currently only available when lying face-down on the massage couch, not as a seated treatment.

In Ayurveda, immense importance is given to the head and neck region, as this is where the five sensory functions are located. There are many Ayurvedic treatments for this area of the body.

An Ayurvedic Head Massage is an intensely relaxing and revitalising massage which nourishes both the hair and roots. It can improve the blood circulation and lymph flow in the head region and can help in removing blockages of energy. It also stimulates the sensory organs and can be very helpful in relaxing the mind, especially when received as a regular treatment.

A head massage is said to directly affect all seven chakras (major energy centres of the body) and to help vital energy to rise up to the crown. It is an excellent stress reliever and is good for headaches and insomnia, as well as easing tension that arises from working on computers. It can also help to reduce aches and pains in the neck, shoulders and arms, and is often used as a treatment for eye pain and any heat or inflammation in the head and neck area.

Can be with or without oil.

Note: Indian Head Massage is a slightly different treatment to Ayurvedic Head Massage. I am trained in both, so each treatment is tailored to the person's needs on the day.
