What is Ayurvedic massage and how does it differ from other forms of massage?
The Ancient Art of Ayurvedic Massage is one оf India’s best-kept secrets and the oldest healing system known to man with its roots dating back over 5000 years.
The Indian principles of Ayurveda, “the science of life”, is designed to create balance among the body, mind, and spirit, and help the body heal itself.
During an Ayurvedic massage, organic oil blends are infused with herbs and heated to promote relaxation and detoxification. The oils are chosen specifically for the client’s needs and enter the body through the skin, bind to toxins and are released to detoxify the body.
The style and flow of an Ayurvedic massage is also determined by the client’s needs, making the experience truly unique for each individual client. The overall approach increases circulation and lymphatic drainage. At Horizon Natural Health Centre, we also offer the traditional custom of two therapists.
