How do you pronounce it?
‘Ayurveda’ is pronounced Are - yer - veda. These massages are also sometimes referred to as ‘Abhyangas’ which is pronounced Ubby - unga.
What is it good for?
This deeply rejuvenating massage expels toxins, promotes suppleness and flexibility, calms the mind and nourishes the tissues and nervous system. Excellent for nervous conditions, stress, anxiety, overwork, fatigue. Considered an integral part of any health program, it is particularly important at the change of seasons. Ayurvedic Massage is also excellent for the elderly, pregnant women, mums and children.
What does it involve?
Large quantities of warm, medicated herbal oils with sweeping, gentle movements specific for your constitution. For example, if you have a more frail, sensitive (Vata) constitution the movements and oils chosen are designed to balance the air/ether elements in your body - usually a gently vigorous massage with warming oils. If you have a more moderate, hot (Pitta) constitution the movements and oils chosen are designed to balance the fire/water elements in your body - usually the least vigorous massage with cooling oils. If you have a more robust, cold (Kapha) constitution the movements and oils chosen are designed to balance the water/earth elements in your body - usually the most vigorous massage with warming oils.
How does it differ from other massages?
Ayurvedic massage is quite different from other massages you might be used to. Apart from the huge quantities of delicious, warm oil, there is also a lot less deep tissue work so you won’t be yelping in pain or coming out feeling bruised. The strokes are working at a more subtle level on the elements in the body by increasing certain qualities, rather than working directly on the more gross structural aspects. The strokes are generally more sweeping than other massages, which combined with the medicated oils, makes these massages incredibly relaxing. The other unusual aspect is they end with a head massage, usually in a seated position - which helps to bring you back from your relaxed stupor before heading out into the world again.
What oils do you use?
For all of our treatments, we use Bio Veda Ayurvedic Massage Oils made in Kerala, South India, by a company that adheres strictly to traditional manufacturing processes while using modern technology in areas of hygiene and quality control.
The oils are made exactly in accordance with the classical Ayurvedic texts from formulations that have been used for thousands of years. These oils (with either a base of black sesame or coconut oil) have been meticulously prepared over a period of days, or even weeks, in a unique process that retains the medicinal and energetic qualities of the plants. When applied, Ayurvedic medicated oils easily penetrate the skin and deliver the healing properties of the herbal formulations directly to the body through dermal absorption.
What should I wear?
It is best to wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting oily. Most of the oil applied will be absorbed by your skin and you can towel off excess oil, but you may still get slightly oily clothes. You can shower at the clinic if you wish, but it’s usually best to relax and leave the oil on for a few hours.
I don’t want oily hair. Can I ask for a ‘no oil’ head massage?
If you’d rather not go home with super oily hair or you have to head out somewhere after your massage, you can ask for a ‘no oil’ head massage.
How will I feel afterwards?
You will feel super, super relaxed. If you’ve been pushing yourself a little too much, this treatment may bring your nervous system to a screaming halt. You will most likely just want to lie down and rest afterwards - which is exactly what you should do, if at all possible. So, try not to schedule anything in after an Ayurvedic massage.
When should I avoid having a massage?
You should avoid having a massage if you are suffering from a cold, fever, diarrhoea, menstruation, or any acute illness.
