A good massage is one of life’s greatest pleasures – that feeling of deep relaxation and inner peace simply can’t be beaten. A full-body massage is included within the retreat package and is given at the start of the week to give you a head-start on feeling as relaxed as possible.
Supporting and harmonising both body and mind, massage therapy can benefit everyone – whether your health is good or has room for improvement. The power of massage to transform, release and renew is greatly enhanced in a retreat environment as the body is more receptive to treatment when combined with yoga posture practice. It’s a winning combination and I am constantly amazed at how different a body can feel in 5 days – in this case, feeling is believing.
Chavutti Thirumal Massage by foot pressure originates in southern India within the Kalaripayattu martial arts tradition where it is used to maintain suppleness and heal damaged tissue. It’s the most amazing massage that will leave you feeling energised and deeply relaxed all at the same time. Using a rope for balance and support, I massage the whole body with my feet, one foot at a time, encouraging tense knotted tissues to release effortlessly. The treatment is powerful and deep, yet soft and surrendered.
Therapeutic Massage is very often used to support other healing modalities.

Facial Massage, with pure Monoi oil, includes acupressure points and massage to the neck to rejuvenate, refresh and revive. As a result of the increased blood circulation and stimulation, the temperature of the skin increases, opening the pores and cleansing the skin from deep within. In addition to improving skin and muscle tone, the skin is hydrated and rejuvenated, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Rediscover a more radiant youthful-looking skin, naturally!
