Ayurveda Massage Therapy

Ayurvedic massage combines the 5,000-year-old Indian principles of Ayurveda “the science of life” and pressure points. This type of massage is designed to create balance among the mind, body, and spirit, and help the body heal itself.

Ayurvedic massage is a customized treatment incorporating essential oils, typically herbal-infused, with time-honored and non-traditional strokes and kneading that suit each individual’s needs. The main focus of this Ayurvedic massage treatment is to balance out doshas within your body to achieve spiritual fulfilment and relaxation. It also helps to improve lymphatic drainage, release muscle tension and nourish the skin.

During an Ayurvedic massage, organic oil blends are infused with Ayurvedic herbs and heated to promote relaxation and detoxification. The oils are chosen to balance a person’s dominant dosha. At the right temperature, these oils enter the body through the skin and pores, bind to the ama (toxins), and are released to detoxify the body.
