Ayurvedic Massage

Feeling lacklustre?  Tired?  Stressed out?  Recovering from illness?

When we feel like this there will often be discomfort in the body, leaving us feeling depleted and low on energy.  My nurturing Ayurvedic Massage using essential oils could be just what you need to recharge your batteries, helping to bring you back to a calm and balanced place, to feel more like yourself again. 

My heated massage table has super snuggly blankets for your comfort. Soft music helps you to drift away…  We may place some hot stones on your body to warm and ground you if this is appropriate – the heat from these volcanic rocks is deeply relaxing and can help to melt tensions away.

Warm, nourishing, relaxing oils are applied in slow, rhythmic, sweeping strokes which warm the skin and muscles, settling the nervous system. Gentle rocking  induces deep calm….  I may add appropriate essential oils according to your needs.

The pressure I use is customized just for you. A gentle touch is used to balance Vata, a deeper touch for Pitta, or an even deeper touch for Kapha.   

The combination of massage oils, essential oils and gentle warmth make this massage a deeply restful and rejuvenating experience.

As the circulation increases, the herbalised oils are absorbed through the skin and carried round the body, allowing their healing effects to benefit all the tissues, releasing tension and encouraging the elimination of toxins, speeding up recovery time from illness or injury.

Lyn is a fantastic therapist- incredibly warm and compassionate with a great deal of knowledge and experience. The treatment is amazingly powerful and relaxing, and my very sore arm is so much better. Thanks so much Lyn- and hope to return soon.  Fiona

Massage and Bodywork can help:

Relieve stress that life has placed in your body
• Release muscles and mobilise joints strained from work, life, sport or gardening
• Prepare for, or recover from, sports or sporting events
• Explore the effects on your body of your personal history
• Let go of patterns of movement that no longer serve you
• Address emotional needs
• Help you discover that feeling of spaciousness in your body

Holistic Massage and Bodywork can enable your body to find it’s own path to healing and restore its own unique balance.

The power of essential oils is twofold. Firstly, through inhalation and the magnificent limbic system you’ll be relaxed by their calming smell, helping to ground you emotionally. Secondly,  they penetrate the skin and move quickly into your bloodstream to help loosen pain and tension in the muscle and fascia.
