Loosen Up with a Relaxing Oil Massage

An ancient Indian lifestyle practice, Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term which means “knowledge of life” that focuses on improving one’s wellbeing through a set of daily lifestyle practices.

While Ayurveda is a holistic body treatment, the massage technique is a form of therapy that is designed to eliminate toxic chemicals and rejuvenate the body. With oil as the medium, this form of massage is a healthy and deeply relaxing way to relieve physical and mental stress.

Savour a Dynamic Experience

With oils made from traditional natural products and herbs, skilled Ayurvedic massage therapists make use of continuous strokes and techniques that help soothe the body. Washing and scrubbing with a purely herbal formula is the signature procedure that makes this massage a truly invigorating experience.

Unwind with Therapeutic Benefits

The Ayurvedic massage makes use of herb-infused oils that are perfect for purification and regeneration. With anti-carcinogenic and antioxidant properties, it is also extremely good for body rejuvenation… a naturally effective way to relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life.
