Marma Massage – Pressure Point Massage
1Hr 20mins €75
Marma massage is the most direct method of harmonizing prana/energy in the physical body of another person: it has the ability to awaken the healing power. This is a deeply nourishing and grounding treatment; it releases deep seated tension allowing the energies of the body to come back into harmony.
During this full body massage special emphasis is given to the marma points, pressure points that transmit electro-magnetic energy through all the organs and systems of the body. Using warm therapeutic oils, invigorating strokes will simultaneously awaken and relax the muscles while a more precise pressure stimulates the “marmas” (points throughout the body where nerves, blood, vessels, muscles, ligaments, joints and bones unite).
Abhyanga Massage – Warm Herbal Oil Massage
Facial Rejuvenation Massage
Over time dietary & lifestyle choices, tension and expression lines from habitual thoughts and emotions can take their toll on our skin. This treatment encourages the flow of oxygen & nutrients to the skin, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and frees constrictions within the facial muscles and connective tissue.
Each session begins with relaxation and activation of specific acupressure points on the face. Then massage movements with varying degrees of pressure detect areas of tension and encourage letting go of habitual facial expressions. Smoothing techniques remove dead skin cells and ‘iron out’ fine lines and wrinkles. Deeper techniques release restrictions in the connective tissue of the dermis, lift the underlying facial muscles and encourage the flow of nutrients to skin. The session concludes with lymphatic drainage and scalp massage. Though the treatment is preformed without the use of oils or creams, some rose serum can be applied at this stage.
Shirodhara – Third Eye Balance And Head Massage
1Hr 15mins €80
In conjunction with a head and neck massage this treatment is administered by gently and methodically pouring warm herbal oil over the forehead and third eye. This continuous flow of oil is profoundly relaxing and calming to the mind, body and spirit. It is one of the most powerful of all the ancient ayurvedic treatments as it touches deep into the spirit and helps us to connect with our soul. Single treatments available though traditionally a course of 7 is recommended.
Pinda Sweda – Warm Bolus Massage
A heated bolus made either from fresh or dried herbs or rice is used to firmly massage warm herbal oil into the entire body. Like most sweating therapies, pinda sweda helps to awaken cellular memory and facilitate healing through the intense stimulation caused by sweating. In addition to relieving the conditions listed above, pinda sweda will leave you feeling relaxed and blissful. It helps revitalise the entire body, increase energy and mobility, reduce stress and restore appetite and sleep patterns.
