What is Ayuvedic Massage?

 

Ayurvedic massage is a key part of Ayurvedic therapy. Just as a machine needs to be oiled, the body loves to have its largest organ, the skin, soothed, which is why large quantities of warm therapeutic oils are used in Ayurvedic massage. Its calm approach means that you are not only induced into a deeply relaxed state during the massage; regular massage assists the body in self healing, generally makes life more joyful and helps keep at bay the effects that everyday stresses and strains can have on our minds and bodies.

Abhyanga

Your Ayurvedic massage begins with a warm oil massage to work through any areas of tension or knots. Massage strokes vary from deep and active with strong pressure to superficial, delicate stroking or pinching/kneading of the small muscles with the finger and thumb. These follow the flow of energy channels and nerve pathways.

Marma Madana

Ayurvedic massage is performed with an acute awareness of the marmas and chakras. Marmas are vital points similar to acupressure points, and when manipulated correctly, they revitalise the entire body. There are 107 major marma points and it is at these areas that pain and weaknesses tend to congregate. The fingers are used to stimulate these points promoting physical and mental rehabilitation.

Chakras

According to the ancient system of Tantra, the human body has seven subtle centres of consciousness, or chakras, five of which are specified along the spinal column, where the three major energy channels intersect. According to Ayurveda, each chakra nourishes particular organs and controls various psycho-physiological aspects of our being. When they are blocked, physical disease ensues. Ayurvedic oil massage opens and cleanses these energy channels so the current can flow freely, helping to re-balance and release pent-up emotions.

Pinda Sweda

​Hot herbal poultices are applied to the body to draw out any inflammation, body toxins, water retention or excess body heat. It also helps relieve pain, stiffness and swelling; improves movement in the joints and blood circulations; and soothes the nerves. Pinda sweda is especially beneficial for arthritis; tired, sore or aching muscles.

Ayurveda regards each individual as unique so the massage techniques and therapeutic oils used depend on any presenting conditions.

Please check the list of contraindications for Ayurvedic massage (FAQs) before booking and contact Sarah if you have any concerns.

Reiki Session
Reiki is not an Ayurvedic treatment, it originates from Japan as a gentle holistic, non-intrusive healing technique which uses spiritual energy to treat physical ailments without manipulation or massage.

However, Sarah is a Reiki Master and the Reiki healing energy naturally flows through her palms when carrying massage which offers an additional element to her treatments, providing natural healing and harmonising the body, mind and soul, leaving you feeling deeply relaxed and serene.
