Ayurveda was discovered by Indian sages who retired to the Himalayas foothills to meditate on life secrets and ways of remaining untouched by diseases. They received this knowledge from the God Atreya and spread the knowledge. This science focuses on keeping the body tuned to natural balance.
Ayurvedic treatments have been used as an alternative form of treatment for many years. Although it originated in India, this technique has grown popular across the globe.
Modern living comes with its fair share of stress related problems. Ayurveda cleanses the body of toxins, promoting good health and reducing stress.
This is a massage that uses a range of techniques, such as stretching, rubbing, squeezing, kneading, acupressure points and other traditional strokes to treat various conditions. Ayurvedic massage techniques incorporates deep and energetic movements that specifically focus on the needs of every individual. The flow and style of this massage are based on each individual patient, body needs and wellbeing.
Before a massage the therapist will ask questions about the client and their health to determine the best massage oils and strokes to use.
Ayurvedic therapists are trained on how to focus on “marma points”; similar to pressure points in acupuncture and reflexology.
Flexibility: Ayurvedic massage uses gentle joint and muscle manipulation techniques to improve flexibility and movement of joints, particularly the hand joints. People with back injuries and chronic back pain might also be cured through the use of herbal oils and Ayurvedic strokes during the massage.
Increase Circulation: This massage can improve circulation of blood to all parts of the body. Increased blood circulation helps to boost the number of red blood cells, enhance heart functions and lower blood pressure.
Apart from boosting blood circulation, Ayurvedic massage can also increase one’s metabolic rate by getting rid of waste from the body. It can also increase the flow of lymph fluids within the body as well as increase their effectiveness.
Enhance joint Function: Since this kind of massage increases the flow of vital nutrients and blood to the joints, it restores fluids to parts of the body requiring motion, such as the wrists, hips, knees and ankles. This is particularly beneficial to arthritis patients or those recovering from joint surgery or injuries
Muscle Relaxation: Helps reduce tension from the neck and shoulders, thereby preventing or eliminating tension and headaches. People suffering from pain from joint diseases, such as rheumatism, can also realize reduced stiffness and pain relief after this massage.
Emotional Relief: This massage offers the best way to relax your body and mind after a long week of stressful situations and hard work.
Enhances skin texture: Ayurvedic massage can also help to get rid of toxins, thereby purifying the body. Due to the plenty of oil used in the massage process, it’s also a perfect way to improve dry skin.

The true teachings of Reiki were taught by a Japanese Master named Dr. Makako Usui. Throughout many generations and passed down through many students of Dr. Makao, this Healing art was eventually brought to the West, spreading throughout Europe, Britain and the Americas.
Reiki: Pronounced as Ray – Key can be defined as “Spiritually guided life force energy”
Rei: - Spiritual Wisdom, which comes from God or the Higher Self.
Ki: - also known as Chi is “The Life Force” or “life Energy”, which flows inside and outside of all living things. Ki, is responsible for the way we feel, how we think our daily performance and is also responsible for our dreams.
When all these areas are in harmony and this energy flows freely and we feel in “Good Spirits”, Happy, well, and free from stress and disease.
When the energy is low or blocked, we feel low, fatigued, stressed, depressed and illness may set in. Reiki treatment helps us maintain the inner harmony/health or restore the disharmony/disease.

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
INCLUDES: Head, neck, back and shoulders.
1. Helps prevent migraines, headaches and back pain
Often tension in the upper back, neck and head can lead to migraines, headaches and back pain which can make for uncomfortable living on a day to day basis and sometimes even lead to depression.
A massage therapist will start the Indian Head Massage by applying pressure to points in the upper back, arms and shoulders that will release muscles and knots. They will then move to the neck and head to reduce headache-causing blockages and encourage better circulation of the cerebral fluid.
2. Promotes hair growth
This is a lovely side effect of the Indian Head Massage (if you’re trying to grow your hair anyway…). The massage increases nourishment and oxygen to the scalp and hair follicle which in turns stimulates hair growth. It’s a one way ticket to long, luscious locks!
3. Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage
Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck thus helping to remove waste products from the body.
4. Relieves sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia
These are often side-effects of stress and Indian Head Massage will immediately relieve stress and promote relaxation by attacking the physical symptoms, thus allowing for a deeper sense of wellbeing and relaxation and opening your body to better rest.
5. Relieves symptoms of anxiety and depression
Massaging the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain which is one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and of lifting one’s mood.
6. Renews energy levels
An Indian Head Massage works with the Ayurvedic concept which goes beyond the limits of healing and places emphasis on balance. Working on the chakras through Indian Massage has a powerful effect in bringing the energy of the body back into balance.
7. Boosts memory capabilities
Often we have short-term memory difficulties because our brains are overloaded with disorganised thoughts, making it very difficult for us to efficiently ‘log’ and collect thoughts and occurrences.
Indian Head Massage slows us down, sensual awareness takes over, thoughts quieten and awareness is brought to the forefront. Think of it like someone pressing your ‘reset’ button.
