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 make up the universe: space, water, air, fire and earth. When combined, these elements give rise to three energy forces inside our body, which are known as doshas: vata, kapha and pitta. At Prana, we believe our Ayurvedic Massages are a fine artform that work the wonder of these doshas to restore optimum balance of your mind, body and spirit.

Each treatment is initiated with a personalised consultation so that we align our treatment with your unique needs. 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

Originating over 3,000 years ago in India, Ayurvedic massage is integral to the comprehensive Ayurvedic healthcare system. This natural and holistic approach to wellbeing aims to establish a harmonious balance amongst the three life energies, or ‘doshas’, that govern our mental, physical, and spiritual health. The Ayurvedic massage process is a fusion of time-honoured Indian massage methodologies and therapeutic Ayurvedic herbal oils.

Yes, we do. Everyone is unique, boasting their own distinct mix of doshas, so their Ayurvedic massage requirements will differ. Our skilled Ayurvedic Massage Therapist, Saroj, performs a brief consultation before each session to understand your dosha type, allowing her to tailor the procedure to your specific needs. She operates with high sensitivity and emotional insight, adjusting her questions to your comfort levels. Her familiarity with your dosha type deepens with each meeting, enhancing therapeutic results.

Saroj is a considerate listener, deeply engaged in the silent exchange of prana (energy) between her and you throughout the consultation and massage session.

Doshas are essentially the three fundamental energies that influence our body’s functions. These consist of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each dosha is a unique blend of the universe’s five basic elements – with Vata composed of space and air, Pitta of fire and water, and Kapha of water and earth. Each individual possesses a distinct mix of these doshas, integral to their wellbeing. When the subtle equilibrium of these doshas is disturbed, it can trigger health issues, affecting the mind, body, and spirit.

Ayurvedic massage employs a unique blend of medicinal herbs and tailored Indian massage techniques that address a variety of ailments such as sleep disorders, muscular discomfort, fatigue, sinus-related issues, and even digestive irregularities like constipation. This comprehensive approach soothes physical discomfort and effectively targets areas of tension in the neck, shoulders, and face.

The method enhances lymphatic circulation, prepping the body for detoxification processes. It speeds up blood flow, thereby expelling toxins and promoting vitality. Concurrently, it reduces joint stiffness and soothes the nervous system.

For some individuals, Ayurvedic massages serve as a spiritual revelation, highlighting the significance of spiritual wellbeing in conjunction with physical, mental, and emotional health. For others, it serves as a reminder in the hectic modern life of the importance of maintaining a balanced spiritual state.

At Prana, we employ a range of traditional Ayurvedic massage oils, each brimming with the richness of herbal blends. For instance, our eladi oil, a facial massage concoction, is designed to enhance your skin’s glow and tackle problems like acne and pigmentation. We also offer pinda oil, known for its soothing and calming effects, besides providing relief from pain and body aches. Another oil is Ksheerbala oil, a popular choice for head massages. From alleviating headaches and mental fatigue to combating hair loss and sinus issues, its benefits are varied. 

Moreover, we acknowledge the reality of allergic reactions. Therefore, we prioritise discussing and confirming the suitability of our Ayurvedic oils with you before initiating any treatment.

While both Ayurvedic and Swedish massages serve the purpose of promoting wellness and relaxation, their underlying principles and methodologies are quite different. An Ayurvedic massage is holistic and aims to harmonise our existence’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual facets. It transcends the basic function of relieving muscle tension and encapsulates a broader goal of overall wellness. 

Conversely, Swedish massage, often paired with Aromatherapy, employs therapeutic oils and specific techniques to alleviate stress from the body’s superficial muscles and tissues. Although it contributes to physical and mental wellbeing, it does not engage with the mind, body, and spirit triad like an Ayurvedic massage.

While Ayurvedic and Remedial massage aim to alleviate pain and aid in healing, their approaches and scopes differ. Remedial massage focuses primarily on relieving pain from injuries, assisting post-operative recovery, or tackling persistent physical ailments. This type of massage uses manipulative techniques on muscles or tissues surrounding the pain area, often prescribed by physicians to aid trauma recovery. 

On the other hand, Ayurvedic massage extends beyond just the physical. Yes, it assists in pain relief and healing, but it also addresses mental, emotional, and spiritual imbalances. This holistic approach to healing makes Ayurvedic massage distinct from remedial massage.

While Reiki, breath work, and sound healing have long been integral to traditional Ayurvedic practices, they have recently gained recognition as separate therapeutic modalities. Although we don’t provide these treatments as stand-alone services, elements of them may be incorporated into our Ayurvedic regimens. Our chief Ayurvedic Therapist, Saroj, has broadened her expertise by participating in workshops focusing on Reiki, breath work, and sound healing, thus marrying traditional wisdom with contemporary practices. Through conscious, systematic breathing—a simple form of breath work—many have experienced relief from blockages in the upper body, including the head, chest, and sinus areas.

Maintaining your comfort and dignity is our top priority during an Ayurvedic massage. Rest assured, you will never be fully unclothed during the treatment. Our professional standards ensure a respectful and considerate approach to your personal comfort. Simply put, we provide optional G-strings that you may choose to wear for your treatment. Furthermore, we ensure that sensitive areas remain covered with towels during the massage. We also ensure that you’re never fully exposed when being repositioned. Your comfort and wellbeing are of utmost importance to us.

Unlike traditional massage, Ayurvedic massage is a holistic approach that balances the body, mind and spirit. Our resident Ayurvedic expert, Saroj, uses warm, nourishing herbal oils, gently massaging your body’s energy points. Expect a profound sense of relaxation, stress reduction, and diverse therapeutic benefits. The oils used are specifically designed to invigorate every cell and tissue, leaving you feeling revitalised and healthier from within. 

If you would like both therapeutic and relaxation benefits from your next massage, please call us on 9316 1553. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. 

I am, as always, in service to you – Saroj.
