Hi there, thank you for taking a look at my page.
I am glad to be offering Ayurvedic Massage For Women at the Haven.

Ayurveda is a vast system of knowledge from India which dates back thousands of years. The word Ayurveda is comprised of two words "Ayu", meaning life, and "veda", meaning knowledge. This combined gives the meaning  “the knowledge of life” or “the science of life”. In Ayurveda, the first rule of life is to honor life itself.

Therefore health is our first priority. Massage is an integral part of ayurvedic wisdom for promoting health and rejuvenation. Traditional Indian families will still give and receive massages every day.

I first studied Ayurvedic massage in South India and I have been continuing my studies ever since. I have been through my own healing process using Ayurveda to regain health, vitality and balance. Throughout this time I have been training with my current teacher Dr. Vinod Verma for whom I have infinite gratitude.

Presently I give Ayurvedic massage which uses warm herbal oils. It is a rejuvenating, integrating and flowing massage which serves to regain vitality and balance in the body mind and soul.
If you are interested in my services please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.


About Ayurvedic Massage

Ayurvedic massage is holistic, deeply relaxing and calming for the nervous system. It is detoxifying and nourishing. The oils used in Ayurvedic massage are rejuvenating and balancing. Ayurvedic massage serves to restore equilibrium in the body, mind and soul. It relieves aching and tired muscles and bones. The rejuvenating effect leaves you with an uplifted feeling with a sense of vitality.


Massage offered by Claire:

The following three massages can be done on their own or in combination if desired:

Abhyanga (body massage) 60 mins

This is a relaxing, flowing, integrating and rejuvenating oil massage. It is therapeutic in nature and helps to establish balance between the three dosha: vata, pitta and kapha. It brings lustre and beauty to the skin. The massage uses large stroking movements with varied pressure depending upon the clients needs. It starts on the back of the body and flows from the tips of the fingers to the toes. The massage is repeated on the front of the body finishing at the feet.


Shiro Abhyanga (head massage) 45 mins or 30 mins

This is a deeply relaxing and calming oil massage which concentrates on the shoulders, neck and head. The client is in  a seated position throughout. The massage calms the body and mind and strengthens the hair and scalp. The oil used beautifies the hair and decreases premature greying. It is a flowing massage that integrates different techniques such as tapping, kneading and stroking.


Mukha Abhyanga (face massage) 30 mins

This is a soothing and calming oil massage for the face. It starts with cleansing the face using organic rose water which relaxes and soothes. The face is massaged with circular and flowing movement and integrates the neck and ears. It is deeply relaxing and soothing. It serves to enhance beauty and a youthful appearance.


Abhyanga (2) - 75 mins (whole body massage)

This is another type of Abhyanga (body massage) (please see above). This particular oil massage begins with the client sitting up and receiving a short head massage, this relaxes and calms the mind. A short face massage follows and there is a continuation on to the front, finishing with the back of the body. There is more emphasis on the hands and feet in this massage.


Ayurvedic Massage: - 90 mins

(Whole body massage on futon mat and includes head and face)

This oil massage relaxes the tired muscles with various techniques including kneading, tapping and shaking. It is a flowing massage which gets deep into the muscles. This massage starts at the legs and continues onto the back and the torso. It finishes with the client in a seated position where the rest of the body is massaged including the head and face. A few energy points, known as marma points in Ayurveda,  are gently pressed during this massage to allow energy flow throughout the body. This is a great massage for clients with very tired and strained muscles and those who do a lot of physical exercise. It is rejuvenating and up-lifting.
