If you have a more serious condition and would like a program of treatments recommended for greatest therapeutic benefit then it is a great idea to book in for an Ayurvedic Consultation first.

Ayurvedic Massage

Offering relief from stress, tension, headaches, low energy

or insomnia

This deeply rejuvenating massage expels toxins, promotes suppleness and flexibility, calms the mind and nourishes the tissues and nervous system. It is excellent for nervous conditions, stress, anxiety, overwork, fatigue and is particularly important at the change of seasons. Ayurvedic Massage is also excellent for the elderly, pregnant women, mums and children. The treatment involves the use of large quantities of warm, medicated herbal oils with sweeping, gentle movements specific for your constitution.


“My Ayurvedic massage was amazing! The therapist had such a warm and soothing presence.... I am walking on clouds. I especially loved the foot and head/shoulders massage. Thank you!”

Ayurvedic Steam Treatment

Offering relief from toxic accumulations, poor circulation and low energy

Ayurveda teaches that a steam sauna following an Ayurvedic Massage (Abhyanga) improves not only the absorption of medicated oils used during the massage but also the elimination of toxins from deep within the tissues (Ama). It also aids circulation, promotes suppleness and flexibility, calms the mind, nourishes the nervous system and pacifies Vata.  However, Ayurveda also teaches that it is very important for your head to remain cool during a sauna or you can aggravate Pitta and may damage your nervous system - hence the special Ayurvedic sit-in sauna!

“There is nothing better than a good sauna and the Ayurvedic sit-in steam sauna at Mudita is a 5 star experience. It is cleansing, rejuvenating and energising... I feel totally AMAZING after a session!”

10-15min Steam Treatment - $10

(Recommended following an Ayurvedic massage)

Pindaswed Massage

Offering relief from cellulite, arthritis, joint pain and

muscle pain

Pindaswed offers immediate and lasting relief from pain and inflammation. This massage can relieve conditions including arthritis, stiffness and swelling of the joints, cellulite, obesity and muscle pain. If there are toxic accumulations in the body (Ama), pindaswed is the best course of treatment for removing them. Pindaswed involves the therapeutic application of heat with a medicated herbal ‘bolus’. It may be applied to the whole body or more locally, depending upon the condition. It may also be applied ‘dry’ or ‘oily’, depending on the condition. An oily pindaswed involves the application of medicated oils to the skin before massaging with the herbal bolus. A dry pindaswed skips this step.


"I had a pindaswed treatment and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It felt like being massaged by hot boxing gloves. It was totally blissful! I had an aching foot every morning for over 3 months and after just one treatment, it was fixed. It may have been my imagination but I also felt like the texture of my thighs improved - that my mild cellulite had decreased. I can’t wait to have more.”

Offering relief from anxiety, headaches, hormone imbalances or insomnia

Shirodhara is a sanskrit word where Shiro means ‘head’ and dhara means ‘flow’.  It is a deeply effective therapy in the treatment of stress, anxiety, nervousness and insomnia. It is also beneficial for depression, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, high blood pressure, migraines and chronic headaches. Shirodhara involves the precise pouring of warm, specially medicated herbal oil upon the forehead for a specific period of time (depending on the condition) followed by a gentle head massage. Depending upon your condition, an alternative liquid may be used such as a herbal decoction or milk decoction.


“Having a shirodhara is like being gently lulled into a deep meditative state. The constant stream of warm oil on your forehead combined with the cool darkness of your eyes being covered, the scent of rose water and medicated oils and the silence (apart from gentle Indian music) transports you to another place... a place deep inside where you feel calm, quiet, peaceful and sane. It is the best antidote in the world for a busy life and strung out nervous system!!”

+ $50 for Medicated Shirodhara Oil (which you keep and re-use for up to 7 subsequent treatments or use at home)

Kati Basti

Offering relief from serious problems of the joints, shoulder and spine

Kati basti is Ayurveda’s unique treatment for musculoskeletal disorders of the spine, shoulder and joints. If you are prone to stiffness and pain in an area, you can also use Kati Basti to help increase flexibility and reduce any pain. A moulded dough is placed over the problem area to hold carefully selected medicated herbal oils, providing relief in conditions such as sciatica, slipped and degenerative discs, acute and chronic back pain, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, knee problems and arthritis. In serious conditions, it is best to have a series of at least 3 treatments for best effect. Note - this can be booked as a combined treatment with an Ayurvedic Massage.


“I had a Kati Basti treatment  and would strongly recommend this treatment for anyone. I suffer from chronic back pain and have done so for a while. The treatment was amazing, calming and very relaxing. The warm oils on my back were very soothing then I received a wonderful massage at the end of the treatment. Thank you Mudita! I will definitely be back.”

Heart Dhara

Offering relief from heart conditions, anxiety, panic attacks, poor circulation, palpitations and chest pain

According to Ayurveda, the heart is not only the centre of our life force but the place from which all emotions arise. Heart dhara is effective in the treatment of heart conditions, but also in stabilising the mind and emotions; helping to treat anxiety disorders, panic attacks, chest pain and poor circulation. The treatment involves a well of dough placed on the chest with a warm herbal decoction and warm medicated herbal oil poured continuously over the heart area. Note - this can be booked as a combined treatment with an Ayurvedic Massage or Pindaswed.


As part of adjusting to a new change in my life, a heart dhara treatment sounded like the perfect way to treat and nourish myself. The care and attention that went into the treatment before, during and afterwards was truly more than I could have wished for. I felt so rested, my heart felt warm and spaceous, and my mind was still. I re-entered the day feeling more at ease and joyful. Heartfelt thanks.”
