Welcome to Ayurvedic Therapies

 

Ayurveda is something to experience and is not just a normal “massage”. The ancient Indian practice of rejuvenation comes from a place of reverence and the heart. At Ayurvedic Therapies I offer a range of Ayurvedic therapies. In keeping with the traditions of Ayurveda. I only use quality herbal oils and herbal powders with the option of organic oils/herbs and traditional therapeutic techniques to detoxify, cleanse, beautify, rejuvenate and re-balance, creating inner radiance, vitality and long-lasting wellbeing. As a client, you’ll feel that your Ayurvedic therapist is in tune with your body and is intuitive to its needs to deliver your treatment in perfect harmony.
“Experience the beauty and healing of Ayurveda”.
