Rejuvenating for body & mind
Ayurvedic massage is a sheer pleasure of a deeply relaxing and indulgent body massage. It is one key part of ayurvedic therapy that results in a profound art of balancing the body and mind through mindful awareness and touch by the practitioner. As a result, the calm approach and the relaxed state during massage can improve disturbed sleeping patterns and relieves stress. And therefore it opposes the effects of everyday stress and strains on the body and mind. In addition, the massage is given in stillness, meaning the massage therapist will be quiet and music will only be played upon request.
We start the treatment with an initial talk about your needs, that might take about 5 minutes. During the massage you will be in your underwear and your body will be covered with towels. Only the body parts being massaged will be exposed to the oil massage. Depending on your constitution (dosha), I use organic sesame, sunflower or coconut oil, that will be scented with aroma oil. If you are allergic or sensitive to fragrances tell me before we begin the massage. There is no possibility to take a shower after the massage so be aware that your clothes can get a bit oily.

-healing energy massage
Marma vital points are carefully stimulated with very light touch and a specially chosen essential oil. A heated room and that the rest of the body is covered with towels, ensures a relaxed and balanced state of body and mind. The massage therapist stimulates different marma points in the body, depending what the person needs. After pulse reading and a shorter talk about the clients health history or symptoms, the therapist selects a specific aroma oil and marma massage scheme. Marma therapy is not a whole body massage.

Marma therapy is the original point system of healing in the body. There are 107 marma points in the entire human body. They reach from the top of your head to the soles of your feet. The three “mahamarmas” are located in the head, heart and pelvis area are balanced at the end. Mahamarmas are the main energy centers processing thoughts, feelings and deeper emotions. Marma vital points are similar to acupuncture or acupressure points and they are access points for subtle energy channels (prana) to body, mind and consciousness.
Physically, these points represent junctions where lymphatic system, blood circulation and joints meet in the body. During the massage great focus is given to the stimulation of marmas for the purposes of releasing energy blockings, and supporting the body’s own healing capabilities. The knowledge of Marma allows the practitioner to influence the flow of prana through both the gross and subtle bodies for the purposes of restoring health, and peace of mind. Throughout life the body is exposed to physical and emotional stress that can accumulate in the marma points, and it is vital to have a healthy flow of body fluids and keep the body free from toxins.
Sport massage vs.
The difference to a classical or sport massage is the choreographed soft and rhythmic strokes with light touch and the massage includes head, face, body, hands and feet. Additionally, the oil and massage room are heated to ensure you feel warm and secure. All of this in combination helps to enhance skin tone, detoxifies and revitalizes the entire body and induces a deep relaxation. Your ayurvedic massage treatment will begin with a short and confidential consultation prior to your treatment that will take about 5 minutes. I always think it is necessary to have a talk before a massage in order to identify your needs and expectations. Consequently, that allows me to adapt the massage to your needs. If you prefer a more physical massage you should book a trigger point massage. In case you prefer a relxaing massage without (or with just a little amount or oil) you should try lymphatic drainage massage.
