Ayurvedic Massage

Embrace the wisdom of countless generations

Rejuvenate your senses and nourish your energy within as you surrender to the calming touch of Prana’s Ayurvedic massage treatments. We work with your body to heal, cleanse, and restore balance through the powerful blend of traditional Indian massage techniques and herbal oils infused with a soothing essence of healing goodness.

Ayurveda is centred around five natural elements that compose the universe: space, water, air, fire, and earth. When these elements combine, they give rise to three energy forces inside our body, known as doshas: Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. At Prana, we regard our Ayurvedic massages as a fine art form that harnesses these doshas to restore the optimum balance of your mind, body, and spirit.

Each treatment begins with a personalised consultation, allowing our skilled therapist to align our treatment with your unique needs. This ensures that every aspect of the massage—from selecting specific herbal oils like Eladi, Pinda, and Ksheerbala to applying tailored techniques—is customised to enhance your personal wellness journey.

The approach is deeply intuitive, enabling a connection that not only personalises your treatment but also deepens with each visit. This personalised touch ensures a profound experience that rejuvenates mind, body, and spirit, distinguishing our Ayurvedic massage from regular treatments.

Our specialised signature massage treatments are enriched with passion and purpose to immerse you in complete serenity. Savour the charm of holistic wellness as you leave our blissful sanctuary feeling your best.

Ayurvedic Massage – FAQs

Ayurvedic massage transcends the usual, offering a bespoke journey to wellness deeply rooted in ancient Indian tradition. It’s not just about physical relief but achieving harmony within.

Prior to each session, our skilled therapist, Saroj, conducts a brief yet insightful consultation to understand your unique ‘doshas’, or energy forces. This allows her to customise every aspect of the massage, from selecting specific herbal oils to applying tailored techniques.

Saroj’s approach is deeply intuitive, ensuring a connection that not only personalises your treatment but also deepens with each visit. This personalised touch ensures a profound experience that rejuvenates mind, body, and spirit, distinguishing our Ayurvedic massage from the rest.

Doshas are the core energies that govern our body’s functionality, composed of three types: Vata (space and air), Pitta (fire and water), and Kapha (water and earth). These energies represent the five basic elements of the universe combined in distinct ways to influence our health and well-being.

Everyone has a unique blend of these doshas, which shapes their physical, mental, and emotional health. Maintaining the balance of your doshas is crucial; any imbalance can lead to health issues, impacting your overall harmony. Understanding your dosha composition allows us to tailor our Ayurvedic treatments, ensuring they are as effective and beneficial as possible.

Ayurvedic massage is not just a treatment; it’s a holistic experience that marries traditional Indian techniques with the healing power of herbal oils, tailored specifically to address your unique health concerns. It effectively soothes muscular discomfort, combats fatigue, and tackles specific ailments, enhancing both physical and mental well-being.

This therapeutic approach boosts detoxification by enhancing lymphatic circulation and blood flow, easing joint stiffness, and calming the nervous system. It’s more than a physical detox; it’s a spiritual awakening that reminds us of the importance of balance and well-being in our fast-paced lives.

At Prana, our Ayurvedic massages are enriched with a diverse array of herbal oils, each chosen for their unique healing properties. Among them:

  • Eladi Oil: Ideal for facial massages, this oil not only enhances skin radiance but also addresses acne and pigmentation issues.
  • Pinda Oil: Known for its soothing qualities, it offers relief from pain and discomfort, promoting a sense of calm.
  • Ksheerbala Oil: A top choice for head massages, it alleviates headaches, reduces mental fatigue, supports hair health, and helps with sinus conditions.

Understanding the importance of individual health needs and sensitivities, we always discuss and confirm the most suitable Ayurvedic oils for your treatment, ensuring a personalised and safe wellness journey.

Absolutely. Ayurvedic massage transcends physical wellness to deeply influence emotional health. The unique combination of herbal oils, tailored to your doshas, and the nurturing touch of our skilled therapists can unlock emotional blockages, reduce stress, and promote a sense of inner peace.

This emotional release is an integral part of achieving overall balance, as Ayurveda believes in the interconnectivity of mind, body, and spirit. Clients often report feeling mentally lighter and more emotionally balanced, highlighting the profound impact of our treatments beyond the physical realm.

Ayurvedic massage is a holistic therapy that aims to balance the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our existence, offering more than just muscle tension relief. It incorporates traditional Indian techniques and herbal oils to promote overall wellness.

In contrast, Swedish massage focuses on relaxing superficial muscles and tissues using therapeutic oils and specific techniques, enhancing physical and mental well-being without the deeper holistic engagement of Ayurvedic massage.

Remedial massage, meanwhile, targets specific pain and injuries with manipulative techniques to alleviate discomfort and support recovery. While it aids physical healing, it does not encompass the broad, holistic approach of Ayurvedic massage, which seeks to address not just physical but also mental, emotional, and spiritual imbalances.

While we specialise in Ayurvedic massage, we recognise the complementary power of Reiki, breath work, and sound healing. These practices, deeply rooted in traditional healing, offer profound benefits on their own. At Prana, we don’t offer these as separate services; however, they subtly enrich our Ayurvedic treatments.

Our leading Ayurvedic Therapist, Saroj, has expanded her skill set through focused workshops in Reiki, breath work, and sound healing, integrating these elements into our holistic therapies. This integration allows our clients to experience the additional benefits of these practices, such as enhanced energy flow and relief from physical and emotional blockages, as part of their Ayurvedic massage experience.

Your comfort and dignity are paramount to us during an Ayurvedic massage. You will not be fully unclothed at any point. In line with professional standards, we offer optional G-strings for use during your treatment, ensuring sensitive areas are respectfully covered with towels throughout. When moving or repositioning is required, we take extra care to ensure that you’re never fully exposed. Ensuring your comfort and wellbeing is our utmost priority.

To ensure you receive the full benefits of your Ayurvedic massage, it’s important to prepare your body and mind before your session. Here are a few tips to help you get ready:

  • Avoid Caffeine: Try to avoid consuming caffeine at least 2-3 hours before your appointment. Caffeine can make you feel tense and overly alert, states which are contrary to the relaxation needed during a massage.
  • Eat Lightly: Eating a heavy meal before a massage can make you feel uncomfortable. Choose a light snack instead, ideally eaten at least three hours before your treatment.
  • Hair Preparation: Please avoid coming in with wet or freshly washed hair. For the effectiveness of the massage, it’s important that your hair is dry to ensure optimal conditions for treatment.

These simple steps will help you relax and make the most of your Ayurvedic massage experience.

If you seek both therapeutic relief and a serene escape in your next massage, please call us on 9316 1553 or book your session online at your convenience. We’re eager to assist and answer any questions you may have to ensure a perfect experience.

I am, as always, devoted to your wellness – Saroj.
