Ayurveda is one of the oldest healing systems in the world, dating back around 5000 years! Most people know about Yoga, which is a branch of they Ayurvedic healing system. However there is so much more to it, and one of the best ways to balance yourself back to a state of health (or to maintain health) is to receive regular body treatments.
There are many Ayurvedic Treatments one can receive and they each hold different properties and have different purposes. The ones we offer include:
It is a session with a lot of rhythm and can be considered 'vigorous' (similar to a sports massage but with more of a flow). It is stimulating for the system which can help with detoxification and lymphatic drainage.
There is more oil used than a typical oil therapeutic massage so it is recommended to bring/wear clothes that can be a bit more oily.
