Bespoke Therapeutic Thai and Ayurvedic Massage for holistic health and wellbeing
Therapeutic Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) traces its origins back over two thousand years and is akin to a form of therapeutic massage based physiotherapy. Using a variety of yoga-like stretches to limbs and acupressure type manipulation & massage, TYM can be both invigorating and deeply releasing. The stretches can improve muscle tone, mobility and posture as well as help release toxins from the body. Acupressure massage is also incorporated into the treatment which can address sluggishness in organs and bodily systems, assisting with sleep, digestion, circulation and stress reduction.
A typical appointment lasts 105 minutes and cost £75. The massage is usually floor based (using a padded futon style mat) and the client remains fully clothed. Therapeutic Thai Yoga Massage is suitable for those seeking respite from fatigue, long covid, central nervous system disorders, stress, anxiety and depression. It can also be useful for assisting with circulatory problems and some mobility conditions.
For an appointment, please use the contact form below stating your age, gender and health reason for your enquiry. Please note that I am not able to offer TYM to pregnant women currently.
Ayurveda & Ayurvedic Massage
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic health system stemming from the time of the Rig Veda (circa 1500 BC). Encompassing diet, use of medicinal herbs and spices, yoga, massage therapy and meditation, Ayurvedic approaches to health are still used across India and have become more widespread in other parts of the world. Yoga, meditation, Ayurvedic teas and supplements for example are quite commonplace here in the UK but some of the more specialised forms of massage and detox treatments are lesser known.
At Lucia's Light, bespoke, authentic Ayurvedic massage treatments, skin care products and nutritional and lifestyle advice can form part of your yoga therapy programme or can be offered as stand alone treatments or programmes purely for general health, relaxation and indulgence!
Ayurvedic massage treatments typically involve warm oil applications and can also incorporate skin scrubs and steamed herbal compresses. As with Thai Yoga Massage, there are also some elements of applied stretching and mobilising of limbs for detoxing and circulatory purposes and importantly the incorporation of acupressure massage known as marma chikitsa. However, these massage treatments are carried out on a massage couch or seated on a chair.
Ayurveda considers the whole person as an individual, with an individual constitution
Treatments and advice are tailored to your constitutional type (known as your dosha) and your health needs. A medical questionnaire and initial consultation is required prior to your first treatment.
