Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian medical system that aims to maintain the health of the mind, body and spirit. It works on the belief that all life forms are the product of 3 ‘doshas’ – a unique mix of energies known as ‘vata’, ‘pitta’ and ‘kapha’. These govern all biological, physiological and psychological functions of the mind and body. Ayurveda aims at maintaining harmony between these energies.

 Georgie Chester offers Ayurvedic Facial Massage

 Viola Crespi offers Kansa Vatki Foot Massage.

Part of the Ayurvedic tradition, Kansa Vatki (TM) has been practiced in India for centuries. Central to the session is a small, 3 metal bowl used to massage the feet and lower limbs with particular emphasis on the ‘marma‘ points and Kansa Vatki movements. Using ghee or oils such as coconut, the lower muscles release, the skin is nourished and the whole body relaxes. Performed on its own or part of a full body massage, benefits may include improved sleep, stress reduction, enhancing joint mobility and blood circulation.
Ideal for anyone who spends long hours on their feet or at a computer.
