Ayurvedic Massage News

Since April I have been offering Ayurvedic massage – Marmabhyanga – and it’s really popular. This makes me very happy! I have changed the offering as I am being asked for ninety minute appointments. The Ayurvedic approach really benefits from time; acupressure points can take time to respond to touch. The longer the appointment the deeper the effect however not everyone has the resources for a two appointment so here is my suggestion:

  • Two hours @ £88.00
  • 90 minutes @ £68.00
  • One hour @ £48.00

The longer the appointment the more time can be spent working through the whole body. The shorter the appointment the more focused we need to be. We can decide at the start of our time, what focus will be most beneficial for you. Do read the page for more information about this wonderfully healing and nourishing approach to bodywork: ayurvedic-massage/

Seated Indian Head Massage was part of my training – shirobhyanga. I do not actually enjoy receiving a seated massage, I much prefer to receive on the couch … I much prefer to practice it on the couch too! I am happy to discuss this at your appointment. I know some people love this in the chair!

Any questions, please ask! Let me know if you would like an appointment too: contact Yvonne

Elemental Workshop

Next Friday I am runnng the first of three workshops. There are many ideas around Reiki that are an additional practice to it.  I have been lucky to spend time with generous hearted teachers and friends to explore aspects of these.  The visualisations strengthen my connection to the seasons and the passage of time. 

You do not have to be a healer or therapist to come to the workshop. If you see me for bodywork or yoga, you may find some of the ideas interesting, perhaps even useful. Or maybe you are just curious!

We will be talking about how different traditions and nature-based practices use the elements for illustrating that we are very much a part of the Earth and Universe we inhabit. All life is element-based, we are not separate to it.

I will not be giving a unified theory of elemental practice. Instead, I will introduce ideas that I have learned or experienced in order to promote a conversation. When you start talking to others about these ideas, you hear some extraordinary stories of insight. We are all living to make sense of our internal and external world. An awareness of the elements is just another lens to look through – but for me a really important one.
