Ayurvedic treatments include PediKarma(tm), Ayurvedic Face Rejuvenation, Shirodhara,  Aromatherapy, Ayurvedic Hot Stone Massage, and Ayurvedic Body Wraps.

Ayurvedic Face Rejuvenation is a unique combination of gentle, balancing touch, use of marmas (vital energy) points, stimulating scalp and ear massage, together with aromatic oils/lotions which can deeply calm, refresh, and re-energize your face and whole being.

shirodhara Shirodhara, the pouring of a continuous stream of warm oil over the middle of the forehead for up to 30minutes, profoundly relaxes the body and brings peace and clarity to the mind. This is a wonderful treatment for people who work under a lot of stress and need instant, deep relaxation. This treatment starts with a face and feet massage to relax the body and prepare it for the treatment. Please note that this treatment results in oil in your hair. It is recommended to leave the oil in overnight to continue the process if possible.
We suggest you bring an old towel that you're not worried if it gets oily to your appointment to wear home and also wear a top without a collar.
Shirodhara can be added onto other services as a 30min add-on.

Your PediKarma(tm) treatment begins with a balancing, aromatic footbath while being treated to a neck and shoulder massage. We will then begin an exfoliation of the feet and lower legs with an energy-charged blend of minerals from mother nature. Then, while comfortably resting, you will receive a rejuvenating marma point and reflexology foot massage followed by a unique foot massage using a Three Metal Bowl from India. Your feet will then be dusted with an herbal powder and wrapped in warm towels as you continue to lie comfortably. This beautiful ceremonial treatment is a must for everyone wishing to experience true bliss.
The effects of the unique three-metal bowl are dramatic in that it balances the three body energies of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha whilst at the same time helping to detoxify the body and especially eliminate excess heat from the system.

Sacred Stone Therapy, Ayurvedic Hot Stone Massage, uses heated rocks and chilled stones with gentle, balancing massage, and the use of marmas (vital energy) points. A sacred aromatic stone massage using different temperatures of heated and cool stones brings about balance and healing while you enter a state of deep relaxation and reconnect with mother earth.

 

Originally from India, Ayurveda is called the science of longevity and has been practiced for thousands of years. The core belief is that five elements (air, earth, fire, water & ether) exist in different proportions, thereby creating the entire universe and each individual.  Balance these elements and your life becomes more balanced. The use and application of essential oils, aromatherapy, is one technique used to influence and balance these elements.  Massage is another technique. The Ayurvedic tradition believes that these five elements make up three main mind/body types, or doshas, that influence everything from physical characteristics to personality traits. mel Massage of Sydney offers various treatments that can help balance the five elements.

At the root of Ayurvedic treatments are the five elements of nature: Infinity (or Space), Air, Fire, Water and Earth. It is believed that the first of the five elements to emerge was Infinity (or Space). Rather than an empty vacuum, Infinity is charged with vibrational energy. The vibrational dynamics of Infinity produce movement, which is the first state of matter known as Air. As Air moves, it creates friction, giving rise to heat which is the element Fire. Fire liquefies matter, and in so doing creates the element Water. When Water evaporates, the solid element that remains is Earth.

Ayurvedic Medicine is to help people heal themselves. Ayurveda is "The mother of all healing arts" on our planet, because it predates all healing systems and all forms of natural medicine. It was developed in India some 5,000 to 10,000 years ago. Knowledge of Ayurveda has been recorded in two of the vedic texts: the Atharva veda, and the Rig veda, which are more than 5,000 years old. It was many years later that other cultures studied Ayurveda and created their own healing systems, i.e. China, Tibet, Egypt, Africa, and other regions. 

A unique quality of Ayurveda is that healing is promoted by balancing the different energies in the body. These are known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha (the "Doshas" or body humors). The Doshas are the three main combinations of the five elements (ether, air, fire, water, and earth). These five elements in the body can be balanced through diet and herbs that possess the essence of each element. Vata is air and ether and it is the element that moves the energies and nutrients in the body. Pitta is mainly fire and it is in charge of metabolism and digestion of nutrients and energies. Kapha represents water and earth and its main function is to provide strength and development of tissues at all levels in the body. 

So finally, according to ayurveda, health means a complete state of happy relaxed mind and soul with balanced humors and "tissues".
