Summary, massages & treatments

The massages and treatments are practiced in accord with Ayurveda, in all simplicity. The products used are unproccessed and for most come from organic farming.

The presentation of both massages and treatments in accord with Ayurvedic principles is not exhaustive. Although it is possible to ask for a specific care, it is highly recommended to define, together, what is best for your constitution.

The stimulating actions of massages and various treatments on different focal points (Blood, lymphatic, digestive) and the usage of nourishing or drying substances may be indicated concerning your constitution and your health.

By its healing powers, a therapeutic massage in accord with Ayurvedic principles differs from a massage based upon relaxation. It heals illnesses affecting the organism. This factor allows the massage to come to terms with many physical and psychological pains. This type of treatment is adequate for all ages, from children to seniors.
