Ayurveda For Motherhood
Abhyanga, oil massage brings nourishment to the tissues, cells and energy channels, deep relaxation to the muscles and calmness to the mind and nervous system. This is a whole body massage with oil heated to a comfortable temperature. As everyone is a unique expression of nature the type of oil used can vary depending on the season and your individual constitution (Dosha). This deeply healing therapy is beneficial for the nervous system and immune system and supports the healing of many diseases in the body and mind.
Together, we will go through a short, health and lifestyle consultation prior to your first treatment. This is designed to identify your needs and expectations and will allow me to adapt the Ayurveda massage treatment to suit you. This will take around 30 minutes.
This will then be followed by an Ayurveda massage treatment tailored to your requirements lasting around 60 - 90 minutes. The oil is heated and applied directly to your skin. You will be covered with soft sheets, blankets & towels throughout the treatment, and only the parts being massaged will be exposed, ensuring you feel warm and secure. For your own comfort it is best to remove all garments, jewelry and piercings as otherwise oil may get in contact with them. Please let me know if there is any body part you wish not be to be massaged such as your chest/ breasts. Your hair will also come in contact with the oils, the oils are good for your skin and hair and offer deep nourishment.
Please bear in mind that you may feel very relaxed after the treatment, so you may want to plan your activities following the treatment to match this feeling. Please allow an additional 15-20 minutes for all first treatments as part of the consultation process prior to treatment. I will always try and make you feel relaxed, safe and comfortable throughout your treatment.
Ayurvedic massage is MOST beneficial when combined with a complete Ayurvedic lifestyle, and is most complimentary when added to a conscious choice to walk the path to greater health, and vitality in your life.
