Ayurvedic Hot Oil Massage

The perfect nourishing and grounding treatment on a cold day. Oil massage is endearingly known in Ayurveda as love treatment. It truly is pure luxury to experience the heated oil penetrate deep into the skin, muscles and organs even ligaments, tendons and bone as your tension, pains and aces gradually melt away and you surrender to a deep deep relaxation where healing can take place. I love Abhyanga.

The past few weeks I have been creating a variety of medicated oils. I have a passion for creating these oils of the best ingredients I can find. High quality oils, herbs from my garden, wild-crafted local medicines and the best spices I can get my hands on.  Careful tending to a few different techniques infusing the medicines in the oil and some time and I have a handful of medicated oils that are great for a wide range of conditions. The oil carry the medicines deep in too the tissues of the body and ad an umpf to the treatment both physically and mental-emotionally.
The Rosemary infused olive oil is clearing, cleansing, pain relieving, slightly warming and stimulate circulation. I have used it with GREAT success for edema. The Ginger infused oil is heating ,pain relieving, in particular for arthritic pains, stimulates digestion and is great when there is excess mucus. Plantain infused oil is relatively cooling, soothing, calming and great for skin that tend to be itchy, red and irritated. It is a good choice when heating oils are not ideal. I also made a beautiful mix of Cloves,Cardamom and Cinnamon of the best quality. I call it my Bliss Chai Mix. It is soothing, warming, pain relieving and totally luxurious. If I need soothing and cooling qualities I use coconut oil and sesame oil is the most sedating of them all working really well for anxiety and stress. We will choose an oil together based on your need and preference and I may use essential oils in place of or with the infused oils to reach desired affect.  If you would like one of these  treatments please let me know as you book your appointment and I will be ready to share the deeply nourishing experience of Ayurvedic Hot Oil massage


Heating and healing ginger- bath. Spice up your life!

A ginger bath is heating , stimulating and detoxifying.

This is for those of you who need and love heat and sweating.

It is considered a sweat therapy and is pretty intense and obviously you need to make sure that you do not over-heat. Stay in touch with how you are and get out of the bath and drink water  and get some air if you feel any discomfort. Do take care though to not get chilled as well.

Always listen to and honor your body.

 It can be a stand in for sauna if we do not have access to one.

It is a great practice on those days when  you got too cold and simply can not get warm, your muscles are tight and overworked, you have sore and achy joints or if you are just about to come down with a cold or a flu.If you do it just as it is coming on you may just be able to flush it right out of your system.  If you like it it is a good practice as a general detox.

For the full Sweat experience do this  before going to bed.

(On a night you do not intend to snuggle as you will be sweaty ; ) ).

Have a clean bed-sheet  a towel and a big glass of room temperature water by the bed ready for when you get out.

Fill the bath with as hot water as you can bear getting into.

Add 1/4 cup dried Ginger or 1-2 cups  of fresh grated ginger tied loosely in a cheese cloth.

Optionally ad 1-2 cups of Epsom salt ( to ad to muscle relaxing, detoxing effect)

Stay in the bath for  min 20 minutes for the Ginger to really take its affect.

It will be hot .

You will possibly start to sweat already in the bath.

When you feel done get out of the bath.

For maximum effect wrap up in the sheet and get  into bed and under the covers.

Here you will continue to sweat for  potentially up to an hour.

Enjoy the thought of  releasing accumulated toxins through the skin. Let it go.

Use towel to dry of excess.

Drink water as you need it.

As you cool of you will likely be all mush and soft and your muscles heavy and relaxed.

When you are done sweating get out of the sheet as you do not want to reabsorb all the toxins released.

Now rest.

Personally I love this every once in a while and in particular this time a year when I am adjusting to the cold and damp.

Enjoy the heat!
