Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic massage, principles and benefits, a truly holistic experience!

Ayurvedic massage is a massage that comes directly from India.

Palpations and pressures, administered to the naked and oiled body, are relaxing, reduce nervous tension, and improve the circulation of the blood.
In India, the origin of massage merges with the origins of man's creation. Traditional epics describe athletes, archers and fighters preparing themselves with vigorous massages, applying earth, clay, different types of flour or with medicinal herbs to their skin. Men were massaged with oils or clay, looking for methods to slow down their aging. The art of massage is passed down through oral traditions from mother to daughter or father to son. Head massage is a traditional practice which dates back over 5,000 years. Natural oil is applied to the head. It is suitable for all ages. It soothes, removes stress and is relaxing.

The Shirodhara
"Shiro" means head and "Dhara" means pouring into a stream; Shirodhara is the treatment in which hot Ayurvedic herbal oil is poured onto the forehead. Shirodhara is a treatment used by Indian yogis to improve self-awareness. It works on the nervous system, acting on the hypothalamus and leading the patient to better psychological health and that of the nervous system. Shirodhara restores calm and vital balance to the mind and nervous system, correcting imbalances of the senses. The treatment is also believed to reduce insomnia, headaches, and stress. Shirodhara begins and ends with a massage of the face, neck, and scalp. Once you are totally relaxed, it takes up to 25 minutes for the therapist to pour hot herbal oil in a steady, continuous stream onto the 6th point of the Ajna chakra, located in the center of your forehead, better known as the "third eye". In this state of liberation, take the opportunity to meditate deeply or simply surrender to the feeling of bliss. Shirodhara restores calm and vital balance to the mind.

The Dhara Chakra
Ayurvedic Dhara Chakra massage is both sensual and spiritual. It consists of running a liter of hot herbal oil on the points of the chakras. Our therapists use this oil ritual to balance the flow of energy and purify the body, mind and soul.
The therapist treats your body with skill and respect, by performing a series of slow and repetitive movements, alternately stimulating and soothing, to eliminate toxins and other impurities. This deeply relaxing treatment also promotes blood circulation, increases flexibility, and relieves pain and stiffness.
Ayurvedic Massage is above all a therapy which soothes with benevolence. Often natural organic oils accompany the experience. All you have to do is let yourself be carried away by your senses ...

Please note, for any massage, it is recommended to consult qualified physiotherapists.
