Ayurvedic oil massage to balance body, mind and spirit. 

What to expect from an Ayurvedic Massage?

During an Ayurvedic massage, warm oil is poured onto your body and massaged into the skin. The constant and rhythmical movement of the massage have a therapeutic effect on body and mind. During the massage you will experience that you mind quiets down, the constantly racing thoughts might get calmer and calmer until it is finally completely quiet and you can just relax and enjoy your massage in peace and complete inner and outer silence. ​

Before each massage session, I will check in with you in order to understand how you are feeling. Are you stressed, do you feel pain, do you suffer from constipation or do you have troubles falling asleep? The massage is individualised according to your predominant Dosha and any eventual imbalances.

I also offer 30-minute massage (€45), in which we will typically focus on one or two specific areas of your body, for example if you feel very tense in your upper back, I will focus on back, shoulders and arms. We can also focus on the head and face; or on the legs and feet

Abhy
Traditional Abhyanga massage

Abhyanga is the name of the traditional Ayurvedic oil massage. It's a very calming oil massage that comprises of different techniques in order to relax the body, encourage detoxification, enhance the nutrition of the skin and nourish blood, tissues and organs through the power of Ayurvedic oils. I also use Marma Therapy, a gentle stimulation of specific energy points located in the body. 

​​

Abhyanga is the best treatment when you feel stressed, anxious or weak. It can release bone and joint aches and is just a wonderful and relaxing experience. Abhyanga is not a deep-tissue kind of massage. The touch is firm, but I do not apply the same level of pressure that you might be used to from other massages that you have experienced.

Marma Therapy

Marma points are energy points in the body used for healing in Ayurveda. They can be compared to acupuncture points in Chinese Medicine. Marmas are known as vital points because they are doors for direct access to the vital energy (prana) of the body. The secret power of these energy centers is that when stimulated, they release a steady stream of prana to restore balance in the body. Ayurveda says that in order to be healthy in this life, we must allow vital energy or prana to flow smoothly. If we are in imbalance  and get carried away by thoughts or attitudes that are detrimental to our lives, this energy is blocked and the prana cannot flow properly, therefore the body does not function harmoniously.

There are said to be 107 marma points on the body, each serving a particular purpose, and each with its own name and specific way of massaging it. 

Benefits of Marma Therapy ​

  • Useful to treat different ailments such as stress, anxiety, headaches, migraines, muscle aches, sciatica, allergies, sinus problems, digestion problems, insomnia, fatigue, and many other issues.

  • Removes toxins from the body.

  • Gives you a glowing look and a healthier skin.

  • Balances your body’s temperature level.

  • Improves immunity, digestive, neural, respiratory and psychological systems (with regular Marma Therapy massages).

  • Helps to maintain good health and increase longevity.

 Deep Relaxation Massage & Soundtherapy

Enrich your Ayurvedic Massage with Sound Healing, a unique experience that will leave you into a state of calmness and deep relaxation.

 

🌱 How does it work?

 

We start the session with a 15-minute Sound Bath including Tibetan Bowls and a mini Gong that I play around you to ease you into a state of deep relaxation.

 

Then, you receive a 60-minute deep relaxation body massage. It’s a light, gentle and harmonising massage that will help you relieve stress & anxiety. Warm oil is applied with very slow and gentle movement; the moving pressure allows you to truly relax as you gain consciousness of you body, mind and emotions.

 

We finish the session with a Sound Therapy massage where I strategically place Tibetan bowls on different parts of the body and play them with felt mallets creating a flow of sounds and energy which encourages harmonisation and deep relaxation. I also use therapeutical tuning forks and the mini gong around you. You are then gently brought back to consciousness with Crystal Bowls and Koshi bells.

 

After the session, you’ll continue to experience calmness and deep relaxation, feeling more grounded and focused.
