Ayurvedic massage is also available. Our short consultations prior to massage, aims to find out how we can personalize your treatment for your specific needs. We also provide you with Ayurvedic health tips that provide useful health and lifestyle advice for longevity and optimal balance.
Please note that according to the teachings of Ayurveda, female patients only will be considered for massage treatment (as the therapist is female).
At Secret of Ayurveda we believe that we offer the best in what we do. Traditional Ayurvedic methods and only natural, genuine Ayurvedic products are used. We are passionate about people and that really shows as soon as you walk through the door. Most bookings are repeat clients which illustrates the quality of service you receive here.
For massage patients, ensure that you do not eat a heavy meal less than two hours prior to your Ayurvedic massage treatment. A massage on a full stomach can make you feel tired and nauseous. Likewise, if your stomach is empty you may feel light-headed and dizzy. So eat a small, light meal around two hours before.
If you have booked an Ayurvedic head and face massage, please take note that oils will be used on your head and Ayurvedic herbal cream on your face. Oil left in your hair overnight will increase the benefits to both your scalp and hair.
For a full body massage you will be asked to wear only your underwear. We have disposable underwear available or if you prefer to wear your own then please feel free to wear a pair that you don't mind getting oily.
