Ayurvedic Massage

An Ayurvedic massage creates a unique experience that focuses on relaxation and removal of emotional blocks. It restores and helps maintain health, beauty and strength. It strengthens the whole body and rejuvenates. Not only does it have an excellent cosmetic effect, but above all it is regenerating and healing.
Ayurvedic therapies are known for their high effectiveness.

For the treatments I only use natural and edible products. They contain numerous microelements, have medicinal properties and give a great cosmetic effect.
Traditionally prepared oils and herbal compositions are selected
according to the psychophysical type of man (dosha). Thanks to
this preparations do not clog pores, but cleanse and elasticize
the skin preventing premature aging.

The most commonly used oil in my practice is bio sesame oil of the highest quality. According to Ayurveda, full body massage with warm sesame oil cleanses the body of toxins and gives the skin radiance and silky smoothness. I offer various types of massage using warm oil and specific herbs, depending on the dosha, i.e. your constitution and lifestyle.

Udvartana is a deep, cleansing Ayurvedic full body massage (no private parts). It is a
completely natural treatment which encourages slimming and is
a specialized powder massage performed with a unique herbal mixture which is applied to the body using
warm oil. The slur prepared this way has wonderful detoxifying properties. Udvartana is the best possible scrub.

It leaves the skin smooth and firm and at the same time cleanses the body of toxins, while containing diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties. Udvartana is especially recommended for edema caused by water retention as well as cellulite and tendencies for it.

Kati basti- lower back treatment

A soothing treatment where a large quantity of warm herbalised oil is retained on your lower back to relieve pain, stiffness and inflammation. The whole process helps relieve the pain and strengthen your spinal cord.

Brings the best effect in a combination with a full body massage, Abhyanga.

Karna Purana- ear treatment

Karna Purana is the process of healing ear problems with warm herbal oils. Pouring and bathing the ear cavity with oil is calming and protective to the nervous system. The oil is retained in each ear followed by a gentle ear massage.

This treatment is highly effective for tinnitus, excess earwax, impurities in the ear canal, dryness, itching, neck pain, jaw pain, ear infections & vertigo. It makes wonders for sleep improvement.

Netra Basti –
eye treatment

● duration 60 min
(with herbal tea, conversation, followed by a treatment, glass of water to recover)

Netra basti is a wonderful treatment for certain eye conditions: dry eyes, blurry or poor vision, double vision, redness, eye pain, difficulty opening or closing the eyes, and falling eyelashes. It’s
perfect for those who use their eyes excessively – like working all day on a computer. While it’s far more than a beauty therapy, it can make the whites of your eyes whiter.
It may look a bit uncomfortable but I tried it on myself many times and it is definetely not so scarry as it looks. The results are amazing!

Shirodhara

● duration 80 min
(with herbal tea, conversation, glass of water to recover)

A classical ayurvedic procedure of slowly and steadily dripping medicated oil or other liquids on the forehead. This procedure induces a relaxed state of awareness that results in a dynamic psycho-somatic balance. Reduces fatigue and initiates a soothing effect on our brain cells. It is a purifying and rejuvenating therapy designed to eliminate toxins and mental exhaustion as well as relieve stress and any ill effects on the central nervous system.

Feet and legs marma massage (vital areas of the body) with foot bath

● duration 60 min
(with herbal tea, foot bath, conversation, followed by a massage, glass of water to recover)

Marmas are the connection points where the body, mind and soul meet. These points are located along the energy flow channels (so-called vital points, there are 107 in total). Through
the right pressure, they energetically stimulate and thereby unblock internal organs through which the body’s vital forces can circulate in a state of equilibrium. Marma touch massage
harmonizes the whole body, stimulates regenerative processes and promotes self-healing.

Ayurvedic head, face and neck massage

● duration 50 min
(with herbal tea, conversation, followed by a massage, glass of water to recover)

The head has the highest density of marmic points of all body parts. A head massage has a very important healing function and not only strengthens the muscles and scalp but also stimulates the body’s natural healing forces leading to higher movements from
the lower to the upper body parts.

The treatment begins with a cleavage massage around the shoulder girdles, by movement along the nape of the neck to the upper parts of the head. By massaging the scalp with oils, the hair roots are strengthened. Hair becomes stronger and shinier. This massage also helps with headaches and sleeping problems. This is a deep and intense massage.

Back massage

● duration 50 min
(with herbal tea, conversation, followed by a massage, glass of water to recover)


Reduces stiffness of muscles as well as stress. It gives a feeling of relaxation.
It is very helpful for improving blood-circulation to the back muscles and skin.

MASSAGE OR A SOUND BATH WITH A CUP OF CEREMONIAL CACAO, +20 min, €25

One of the best ways to treat yourself.
This beautiful plant activates the heart, opening it up. Cacao works gently on your body, mind and heart, rebalancing your energies to restore the body to its natural state of optimal health.

During this moment we will connect with your intentions and listen to your heart with a medicine plant of Cacao.
In a combination with relaxing massage, sound journey or a treatment it will give you a feeling of a warm hum and deep connection with yourself and your heart.

additional position to every treatment from the list, extra 30 min of sound bath session

After your whole body is massaged, relaxed and free of tension we will fill it with the divine
sounds of the instruments. Sound bath (or sound healing or sound bath meditation) is a
relaxation technique and meditative experience whereby participants ‘bathe’ in the sound
waves produced by instruments such as crystal singing bowls, chimes, gongs, drums as
well as human voice.
This combined with the massage brings relaxation on the highest level. It might take you
on a journey into places your mind hasn’t visited before.
Every session is different. I might be using different instruments than the previous session
based on what feels right to me and the client’s preferences (if there are any).

Private sound bath with crystal bowls (energetic channels balancing)

● duration 70 min
(with herbal tea, conversation, followed by an experience, glass of water to recover)

Crystal singing bowls produce sounds which evoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment.

In addition to their traditional usage for meditation, crystal singing bowls are used for deep relaxation, stress reduction, holistic healing, Reiki, chakra balancing, and World music. Each bowl is assigned to each energetic center- chakra. When placed next to the chakra’s area the vibration is bringing back balance. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones which the bells produce have a direct effect upon their chakras. We tune you into your own breathing and when you are lying relaxed you will be surrounded by the instrument’s sounds and vibrations.
Playing these instruments usually causes an immediate centering effect. The tones set up a “frequency following response” that creates a balancing left/right brain synchronization.
