Marma Massage

What to expect

Marma Massage

Massage is highly praised in Ayurveda and is recommended daily.

Ayurveda believes that aches and pains are caused by obstruction of the flow of vayu (wind) through vayu carrying vessels or siras. Balancing circulation of vayu in the siras removes tension and reduces pain. Massage also promotes a deeper and more natural breathing pattern.

Regular massage helps to relax the muscles, nerves, bones and indeed the whole body. It helps the digestive system by maintaining proper balance and circulation.

Benefits

At your initial consultation (which will take about an hour) please be prepared to talk about yourself and have a conversation in a confidential space.

 

As Ayurveda emphasises balance in all areas of life, various questions will be asked to holistically understand your historical and current personal situation. This will include a good understanding of your diet, sleep, energy levels, professional life, relationships with others, exercise routines & mental wellbeing. For females, menstruation will also be discussed.

According to Ayurveda, all disease is caused by a dosha (constitutions) imbalance. In the way described above, it is possible to identify the imbalanced dosha and the root cause of dis-ease, whether diet and/or lifestyle causes and in the mind or body.

A bespoke treatment plan will be provided including dietary advice, remedies and herbal products. Your plan is tailored to your individual needs.

There are no magic pills given here and all plans take varying degrees of time to reap the full benefits depending on the condition being experienced. Some can take a few weeks, some can take a few months. With Ayurveda, the individual seeking help is expected to be open, willing and wanting to change and improve their health. I can help unlock the door and guide you, but YOU must be the one to walk through it.

Follow up consultations

A follow up consultation is strongly recommended 3-4 weeks after the initial consultation. This is a shorter thirty minute session to discuss progress made and for the treatment plan to be adjusted where necessary.

Further follow ups 3-4 weeks apart are highly recommended in order to help guide you on your journey until you come back in to balance.
