“Ever since happiness heard your name, it is running through the streets trying to find you” Hafiz
The ayurvedic massage is one of the most complete massage techniques of Ayurvedic medicine, a natural medicine indigenous to India with thousend of years and applied successfully for millennia. The Ayurvedic Massage is a full-body massage with warm oils which are medicated specifically suited to the dosha of the receiver of the massage.
Through the rhythmic movements which are alternately soft and sometimes more energetic, specific energy points in the body called “Marma Points” are stimulated, this helps to relax the nervous system and muscles and helps in balancing the body and mind. Beyond the deep relaxation and detoxification of tissues the receiver of the massage experiences postural realignment and feels revitalized and invigorated. The Ayurvedic Massage balances and harmonizes the 5 elements of the body, promoting well-being at all levels.
The AyurYoga massage (Kusum Modak) is similar to the more widespread Thai massage. In this style of massage warm oil and calamus powder are applied to the body. It is held on a mattress on the floor. AyurYoga massage is a vigorous massage that covers the entire body. After a warming phase it moves to a phase of stretches and postures based on the yoga asanas which will relax your body, as well as detoxify it.
The powder calamus aids in the detoxification of body tissues and the stretching postures release the tension which are housed deep within the body. It makes the body more flexible, realigns the spine, assists in chest expansion providing deeper and harmonious breathing. Stimulates blood circulation and prana of the body. A cicle of 3 to 5 massages is recommended every other day.
The holistic massage is a smooth and strong massage of the entire body with warm oil. The method is a mixture of the Body-Mind Centering style (balancing the energies in the body), reiki, shiatsu and ayurvedic massage. Depending on the preference the massage can be invigorating and soothing with rhythmic movements or more detoxifying and relaxing with stronger movements.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” It is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
