Ayurvedic Massage

Ayuverdic massage therapy works on both physical and mental levels transmitting a life-giving energy that assists all systems of the body to repair and renew themselves. This practice concentrates on the marmas, subtle energy points, that respond to gentle physical manipulation and work with the needs of the different body types. Sharing the same roots with yoga, this ancient healing practice uses therapeutic warm oils and herbs aimed to balance your specific body constitution. Their action penetrates deeply and helps to heal muscle and joint pains as well as neurological disorders, such as insomnia, headaches, etc. It tones the spirit and relaxes/harmonizes the nervous system. The effect is deep relief and restoration.
