Tuesday afternoons. Other times and home visits are available on request.
Massage has been used for centuries to promote health and well being for both body and mind. Massage therapy encourages the body to cleanse itself, promoting healthy lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, muscular skeletal and nervous systems.
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) is a unique combination of deep tissue massage and therapeutic yoga. AYM was developed in the 1980's by Master Kusum Modak, an ayurvedic therapist and yogi. The massage is performed on a futon floor mat to enable free movement during yoga. Ayurvedic herbs and oils are used to warm the muscles and encourage detoxification. Therapeutic yoga and breath work is combined with this deep tissue massage to take away muscular aches and pains, encourage body awareness, improve energy flow and balance throughout the body and mind.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage is often used for more specific ailments such as back pain, sports injuries and other muscular skeletal issues. It also encourages the release of long held physical and emotional tension, and combined with acupressure encourages energy flow throughout the body, further promoting physical and mental well being.
Holistic massage combines various disciplines such as shiatsu, reflexology, and Swedish massage to ease away stress and tension, leaving you with a deep sense of well being.
