AYURVEDIC TREATMENTS

Ayurveda was developed more than 5000 years ago by highly spiritual beings and means the ‘knowledge of life and longevity’. The aim of all ayurvedic treatments is to bring harmony and re-establish physical, mental and spiritual health. Treatments focus on the cause of problems to give permanent health solutions, rather than combating symptoms. The core of ayurveda is massage using essential oils, natural herbs and plants.

SHIATSU

Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing traditional Japanese healing art. It literally means finger pressure and is often referred to as a form of ‘acupuncture without needles’. Shiatsu is based on the principle that energy flows through the body through meridians. If the energy flow (Ki or Chi) is disrupted then pain, irritations, anxiety and emotional imbalances follow. Through a combination of stretches, joint rotations and gentle pressure, Shiatsu stimulates the body’s innate healing mechanisms. Regular therapeutic treatment can strengthen the immune system and lead to better health and well-being.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology is a relaxing treatment involving the massaging of feet. It is based on the theory that for every part of the body there is a corresponding reflex point in the foot. All the energy meridians are represented in the feet, together with many nerve endings that relate to organs in the body. Before the massage the patient’s feet are soaked in a foot bath with hot water and aromatherapy oils. By massaging the feet through a form of acupressure, deposits that block the body’s energy flow are broken up. Reflexology helps the body to regain its balance and contributes to good health.

DEEP TISSUE

A deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. Deep-Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fibers of the muscles and tendons. It usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. You should feel better than ever within a day or two. A deep-tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. It’s important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body. It is both corrective and therapeutic. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity and patients who have sustained physical injury.

HEALING THROUGH TOUCH

The hands are soft and strong, flowing in a dance, talking and equally listening to the body of the receiver. The strokes are long, sweeping and very slowed down. Interacting in between the Nadis (energetic channels) and the meridians of the body, alternating from a gentle touch to pressure points or to insertion of subtle energies, this massage allows the body to relax and at the same time it is stimulated and revived.
