Drawing on a combination of several different approaches to massage therapy, Fairlee Wellbeing Centre is proud to be the only healthcare centre capable of providing Ayurvedic Yoga Massage treatments in Clapham for patients of all ages. Similar in many ways to Thai massage, ayuvedic yoga is nevertheless a unique form of massage that has a long history, being based around traditional physical healing techniques.
Originating from India over 500 years ago, Ayuveda can be loosely translated as “wisdom of life” in Sanskrit, and this is reflected in the practices and techniques used by our expert practitioners. Our Ayurvedic Yoga Massage in Clapham combines a holistic, cleansing massage with yoga stretching, which, along with the use of Ayurvedic oils and powders, gives numerous health benefits to the patient.
During the course of your treatment, we would normally recommend 90 minutes or as much as 2 hours to receive the most profound benefits. An Ayurvedic yoga massage is performed by an experienced and qualified practitioner, who lies the patient on a floor mattress for free movement and flow.
The use of essential oils and powders is vital to the cleansing process, and each course of treatment is unique: the needs of each patient vary, sometimes widely, since the overall aim of Ayurvedic Yoga is to release stress and tension and restore the patient’s sense of profound wellbeing. As such, the style of each treatment is different every time, but may involve tapping, kneading and squeezing together with more traditional massage strokes.
The massage treats the body as a whole, rather than as a collection of separate parts, and can positively affect the flexibility of joints and muscles, as well as increasing flexibility when it comes to yoga and related fitness practices. Ayurvedic Yoga massages in Clapham may also help to:
- Eliminate Toxins
- Enhance suppleness
- Improve circulation
- Improve respiratory patterns
- Raise energy levels
Above all, the practice is designed to restore harmony to the body and can leave the patient with a profound sense of wellbeing. As a form of preventative medicine, Ayurvedic Yoga can help keep people of all ages and backgrounds to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Our therapists are highly trained and passionate about their craft, and we make our sessions as comfortable and welcoming as possible.
