Ayurvedic Full Body Massage

Ayurveda (pronounced 'Eye-er-vay-da') is India’s oldest respected system for beauty, health and long life. In its full form, ayurveda recommends the best work, play, lifestyle behaviour, diet, and exercise for an individual. It aims to balance an individuals' natural bio energy, called their dosha. One of Ayurveda's keys to long life is a regular full body massage, a relaxing massage called Abhyanga or an invigorating deep tissue massage with stretching called Vishesh.

During the consultation, Steve discovers your specific ayurvedic dosha, then you relax as a complex potent herbal oil blend is prepared especially for you. Ayurvedic massage involves the generous application of a unique herbal oil blend in a heated state, thereby reducing dryness, roughness, cold, air and space (vata) in the body, which bring about pain. The oil is warmed in a traditional brass teapot.

The full body massage includes a seated head and upper back massage before treatment on the couch. Vanity undergarments are provided to maximise skin exposure to the oil. The massage concentrates on generous warm oil absorption, particularly around joints, and dry and rough skin; it does not focus on muscular knots and adhesions. Some clients prefer to add in the Hot Stones or an Ayurvedic Kizhi Hot Compress to apply extra heat to the body during the treatment. Shirodhara is traditionally applied at the beginning to complete a classic Ayurvedic treatment.

Relax and enjoy an exceptional Ayurvedic Abhyanga or Vishesh massage treatment by Steve in Southampton. If you've time and budget, why not add a freshening and smoothing body scrub, or traditional Shirodhara before the massage?

The warmth and pouring of the oil makes this treatment truly calming. It seems to caress and nurture my body's natural ability to soothe.
