Ayurvedic massage, an ancient therapeutic bodywork

Ayurvedic Massage – Ancient Therapeutic Bodywork

Ayurvedic massage is ancient therapeutic bodywork that has been practised in India for over five thousand years – that gives a lot of time for fine-tuning! Its purpose is to restore balance by bringing the elements within us into a dynamic equilibrium.

Ayurvedic massage, whether it be to soothe and nurture, to invigorate and revitalise, or to send you into a blissful state of relaxation, is designed to support your physical and mental wellbeing.

An Ayurvedic understanding of health

Ayurveda understands the universe as made up of five elements – earth, water, fire, air and space. The three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha – perform different functions in nature, based on the elements that make them up.

  • Vata, air and space, is quick and dynamic. It creates movement and change.
  • Pitta, fire and water, metabolises, transforms and digests.
  • Kapha, earth and water, provides stability, denseness and moisture.

When Ayurveda speaks of you having a particular dosha, or blend of doshas, it means that one or two of them are more strongly present in your constitution. This shows up in your physical form, mental characteristics and emotional traits.

All Ayurvedic treatments offered at Prana start with a short consultation period in which your dosha is determined. This means the treatment can be 100% tailored to you, bringing the wisdom of countless generations through our experienced therapist’s nurturing touch.

Whichever treatment is right for you, you are sure to leave your massage feeling calm, rejuvenated, energised and vital.
