AYURVEDA

 

 

 

 

"Life (ayu) is the combination (samyoga) of body, senses, mind and reincarnating soul. Ayurveda is the most sacred science of life, beneficial to humans both in this world and the world beyond."

 

Ayurveda is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature. It is an ancient wisdom of health and healing, a science of life. The aims and objectives are to heal the disease focusing on the cause rather than the symptoms. 

According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance among the body's three fundamental energies, or Doshas, and an equally vital balance among body, mind and the soul or consciousness.

SHIRODHARA (Forehead Oil Flow Treatment) 

45 min – £45/£60 

*Shirodhara with foot or face massage 60 min - £50/£65

*Shirodhara with full body massage 90 min – £60/£75

 

An Ayurvedic ultimate mental and emotional relaxation therapy involving a steady stream of warm oil being gently poured over the central Chakra point on the forehead, an area where nerves are highly concentrated. The gentle pressure and soothing warmth of the oil allow the body, mind and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, similar to meditation.


It is highly effective to remove mental stress and anxiety, helpful in insomnia and any sleep disorders, PTSD, jetleg, migraine headaches, and hypertension. Shirodhara is also a great treatment for the healthy individual looking to maintain health and enhance well being, clarity, calm and immunity, relieving fatigue and enhancing energy levels.  It is profoundly relaxing and nourishing. 

 
It is advised to leave the oil in your hair for at least a few hours following the treatment. It’s best to leave the oil in your hair overnight if you can.
Prepare to cover your head following the treatment. If the weather is cool, windy or cold, bring an old warm hat, again something you don’t mind getting oil on. 

An old scarf works well to cover the head and hair in warmer weather.

                        --LOCALISED TREATMENTS--

 

Vasti therapies are used to cleanse, relax, soothe, nourish and rejuvenate the body in localised areas. A circular dam of flour is sealed around the indicated area and it's constantly filled with warm herbal ayurvedic oil. The oil is specifically prepared to penetrate deep into the tissues in order to detoxify the vital points which affect the whole body.  Once the dough ring is removed, the area is thoroughly massaged paying specific attention to the Marma points in the area.
