What is Ayurvedic Massage?

Ayurvedic is an incredibly calming kind of massage. The focus is on relaxation and letting the burden of daily life fall away as you deeply surrender into a more balanced mind and body. One key element is the use of warm oils. Treatment is focused getting into the deep tissue to free up your energy channels. This translates to an experience that doesn’t simply relax your muscles—it is a potent treatment for healing a variety of health imbalances and mental health concerns. When you come to Unique Threading Salon for a massage, we customize your massage based on the best way to balance your specific body type.

Benefits of Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic massage is one of the most beneficial types of massage you can experience. People report help with many physical ailments, but the biggest draw of this type of massage is its impact on mental health. People report better sleep and an overall greater sense of well-being. This is because we subconsciously hold tension in our bodies from emotional trauma. It forms physical knots in the body, which ayurvedic massage is designed to gently release. The loving and compassionate way your massage therapist approaches massage has a lot to do with how successful your massage is, as well as how much trust you feel towards them. Therefore, it is typical for clients to come back regularly to the same therapist to have a greater impact over time as the relationship deepens.

The Ayurvedic Experience

We will begin by providing a consultation to see what type will best suit your needs and individual body composition. From there, we will choose the right oil and technique. Before your treatment begins, your therapist may start with a meditation. During your massage, they will synchronize their breath with yours to ensure a strong connection. Your treatment will last either 60 or 90 minutes. During that time, your massage therapist will gently manipulate your muscles with the warm oil using long, energy-balancing strokes. The oil deeply penetrates the skin, allowing it to directly heal the cells of your body. The strokes vary from very gentle to deeper, and follow energy channels, nerve pathways, and hair growth. Ayurvedic massage is full body to ensure that your entire self is aligned and balanced.
