What is an Ayurvedic massage?

Ayurvedic massage is an integral part of Ayurvedic medicine. Massage was traditionally not considered a luxury but as part of daily routine to keep our physical, emotional and mental aspects balanced. Massage helps the body to efficiently circulate nutrients and eliminate toxins, thus it plays an important part in cleansing, and if practiced regularly, rejuvenating the body.

Deeply relaxing in its effect, Ayurvedic massage creates a connection between body, mind and spirit, and can help unlock the gates to the inner world and a more joyful life. Massage is a form of communication, it can be a meditation, but it is also a state of "being".

Although the massages below are for well-being only, our clients often report therapeutic effects. Either way, Ayurvedic massage is a truly nurturing experience. We use our knowledge of Ayurveda to give you a most beneficial massage.
