Ayurvedic Massage Therapy
This ancient Indian ‘life science’ has the ability to dissolve built up tension and stress accumulated in the in muscles, nerves and energy pathways of the body. Ayurveda is a sophisticated health care system which combines all facets to restore health.
Ayurvedic Massage therapies help the body detoxify and move stagnation within all the tissue layers of the body, thus enabling the body to revitalise and protect itself from degeneration of both the body and mind.
Abhyanga is a technique that can be used purely as a relaxation method to unwind and restore, but also as a therapeutic holistic treatment protocol to improve ailments and pathology while supporting rehabilitation. This technique is often used alongside other herbal/naturopathic treatments to ensure a successful outcome.
The key to Abhyanga massage is the use of warm sesame oil, which helps to nourish the nervous system. When stress levels are high and energy is low, the body becomes dry preventing vital nutrients and oxygen from reaching our cells. Massage restores vitality and the much-needed moisture back on a cellular level.
Siddha Marma is an ancient Asian massage that focuses on the acupressure points located in 107 positions in the body. This system restores the body and mind and releases any blockages within the body. This incredible therapy was originally developed to give strength to martial arts warriors before battle and rehabilitate them directly after.
Although we do not go to ‘war’ in daily life, there are periods in life when illness or trauma requires a battle to overcome both physically and emotionally. The free flow of energy and vital force is equally as important as the physical being and this therapeutic application achieves the harmonious balance and restoration of both.
Herbal Medicine is the study of botany and is the oldest form of medicinal treatment throughout the world today.
Western Herbal Medicine uses an eclectic philosophy, that includes herbs from Europe, Northern America, China (TCM – Traditional Chinese Medicine) and India (Ayurveda). Herbs work on multiple levels and have both a gentle yet powerful effect on the mind, body and soul, enabling the body to utilise the herbs as a tool to heal.

Iridology is the science of analysing the topography of the iris to determine the state of health in the body.
A magnified image of the iris is taken for the iridological examination, which is used as a diagnostic tool in conjunction with the client’s case study to both verify and reveal any predispositions, weaknesses, and strengths in the client’s constitutional make up.
