Ayurveda Full Body Massage
There are 4 main parts to an Ayurveda Massage. These consist of :
1.Marma Points Therapy. Marma points on the body are found in muscle, ligaments, tissue, bone and blood. There are 107. Pressure is applied on each point which in turn helps to increase circulation of energy and nutrition to the cells in the affected areas.
2.Garshana treatments consist of a dry lymphatic skin brushing with a silk glove. This "rubbing" increases heat and enhances circulation while exfoliating the skin so subsequent oil and herbal treatments can penetrate deeply into the freshly cleaned pores. This technique also produces static electricity, which alkalizes the blood and detoxifies the body. •
3.Abhyanga, the classic Ayurvedic massage, is an individually prepared herbal-oil massage designed to deeply penetrate the skin, relax the mind-body, break up impurities, and stimulate both arterial and lymphatic circulation, enhancing the delivery of nutrients to starved cells and the removal of stagnant waste.
4.Vishesh is a deep muscular Ayurvedic massage that breaks up adhesions and comp romised circulation within the muscle spindles. When certain channels are blocked, then neither awareness nor blood can access deeply seated tissues. For certain body types and imbalances, this is an essential therapeutic approach.
Altogther this full body massage is 90 minutes of pure bliss, relaxation and healing.
Valuka sweda is another component that can be added into an Ayurveda massage or used as a separated treatment. A combination of herbs , sand and salt are used in a bolus. The bolus is heated and used on the body. Depending upon the area and need of the individual the bolus massage can be done dry or an oil application can also be employed.K

Affective Emotional Release Massage : $80.00
Affective memory massage is a unique massage targeting points in the body that we tend to suppress emotions. Many schools or massage believe we store emotions in an area called the mask as well as an area called Body armour,
This massage is not comfortable but effective and can and should be emotional draining. Each individual will be affected in different ways depending upon our life experiences . If a strong reaction is felt then it is suggested to repeat in 2 weeks to continue with the emotional release.
Muscle memory is linked to motor learning which secures a particular motion in memory through repetition, sending a message to the brain along neural pathways. Examples include; typing on a keyboard, using a knife and fork, playing an instrument and martial arts.
It has been suggested that in the same way muscles store this kind of movement through encoding along neural pathways, muscles can store emotion. As emotions are designed to move through your body, issues arise when this is prevented.
This massage lowers blood pressure and as such a period of rest directly after the massage is necessary.
