Clinical Massage:   £75/60 minutes

I use a combination of eastern and western techniques to address the needs of each individual client so no two treatments are the same.  Depending on the client and the condition being treated, techniques will include a number of the following:

 

Ayurvedic Massage (Abhyanga)

Hot herbal oil is massaged into the skin, the body’s largest organ, where the herbs are transported the various systems of the body.

 

Marma Point Therapy

Energy points, known in Ayurveda as Marma Points and similar to Chinese Acupressure points, are stimulated to relieve blockages relating to specific conditions or imbalances.

 

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massages uses firm, slow strokes to massage deep layers of muscle and fascia (connective tissue) to ease stiffness and pain.

 

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy is a neuromuscular therapy which involves applying pressure to specific points in a muscle to help break the cycle of referred pain and promote healing.

 

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stones are used to massage the body relieving stiffness pain while relaxing the muscles.  Massage with heat encourages production of synovial fluid which lubricates and eases the joints.

Shirodhara:  £88/60 minutes

The most iconic of Ayurvedic treatments, Shirodhara is the systemic pouring of warm oil across the forehead.  This unique treatment induces a state of deep relaxation very similar to meditation and has a profound effect on the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.  Shirodhara can be taken as part of a treatment plan or as a standalone treatment.
