Detoxifying ayurveda

Detoxifying ayurveda
© Maxam

Originating in Hindu medicine, ayurverdic massage revitalises your organs by balancing energy in the body. It's often done naked and uses a mix of essential oils selected according to your personal criteria and your ailments.
The massage is centred on energy points and uses pressure, friction and petrissage for guaranteed detoxification!

Benefits: Aside from being relaxing, it makes tissue more supple, detoxifies the body and improves blood and lymphatic circulation.

Note: Avoid if you have lesions, inflammations, etc, as well as if you're pregnant. Also avoid if you're susceptible to migraines or heart trouble.

Price: For an hour long message, you'll have to pay out £50 upwards. Some centres offer two day retreats starting from £125.
