As someone who battles stress and anxiety daily, I was skeptical about finding relief through massage. However, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with Amanda exceeded my expectations. Not only did it relax my body, but it also calmed my mind. I feel more centered and grounded after each session. It's become an essential part of my self-care routine.
Living with fibromyalgia has been a constant struggle, but Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with Amanda has been a game-changer for me. The gentle yet effective techniques used during the sessions have alleviated my pain and improved my overall well-being. I no longer feel trapped by my condition, and Amanda's understanding (and patience) of my condition is amazing and I'm so grateful.
Dealing with digestive issues has been a challenge, affecting both my physical and mental health. Thankfully, I discovered Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with Amanda.

What can I expect during an Ayurvedic Yoga Massage?

In practical terms, treatments work on the whole body, with more emphasis on the areas that need more work.

  • A session starts with an oil massage. This gradually warms up and softens muscle tissues and fascia, relaxes the body and mind, helps breathing and improves circulation.
  • We work specifically with the breath to help the nervous system to relax.
  • We use natural oils (if I know you're Dosha type the oil will be specific to you) and a powder from the ground root of Acorus calamus, a wetland plant in the sweetflag family. This gives a pleasant exfoliating feeling, but mainly helps improve circulation and warm up the tissues, intensifying the benefits of the massage.
  • The oil massage is supported by gentle mobilisations, tractions and assisted (passive) yoga stretches - I'm doing the work; not you. These help lengthen the tissues in a functional way, useful if you’ve had injuries. Through these gentle movements we help relax the tendons and ligaments, and improve the circulation and promote natural healing in joints.
Why is Ayurvedic Yoga Massage so beneficial?
  • Ayurvedic Yoga Massage works with both oil massage and movements, meaning your body gains all the benefits of both. Therapists take time to understand your needs and your limits so you never feel over or under worked.
  • Combining working close to your limits and using breathing to help activate the parasympathetic nervous system helps release tension from even the most ‘stuck’ parts of your body.
  • Massaging, moving or stretching tense muscles can cause pain, resistance or agitation. The mindful touch and deep, relaxed breathing that AYM offers helps retrain the nervous system to not react in this way. This is great for moving you out of chronic pain.
  • This whole-person approach to Ayurvedic Yoga Massage gives a lasting feeling of being centred, where you are less likely to feel agitated or restless, and experience increased clarity of thought.
  • The approach aims to help you develop body awareness.
What's the best length for a treatment?

This depends on the individual: how quickly your body responds; how many parts of the body need deeper work; and your priorities/what you would like to get from your session. If you’d just like to relax and have an amazing full body massage experience then we’d recommend 90 minutes. If you’d like to start working deeper on different parts of your body then it depends how many parts of the body you’d like to work on, how quickly they respond, and whether you’d still like a full body massage as well as the deeper work. Generally, muscles will respond faster if (i) they haven’t been tight for a long time, and (ii) the body is used to yoga/bodywork/something where we feel some pain, breathe into it and then feel better. Then your brain associates being in that condition with relaxation rather than with danger/injury. We can work effectively on some people in 15 minutes, if they’re experienced yoga practitioners and we only work on the tightest part of their body. Many regulars prefer 2-3 hour sessions so they can have a full body massage with extra time to work deeper on the areas needing more attention. It’s really open ended as there’s always more that can be done!

Why therapists love AYM too!

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a wonderful experience for the therapist (me) too. Initially we use a sequence to warm up the body, which allows the session to become a moving meditation. Even new practitioners can experience this, by working to a set sequence that they plan at the beginning of a session. It is also a wonderful technique for other therapists to learn as a compliment to their style, and for yoga teachers to offer at the end of a yoga private.

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is also wonderful for therapists to offer as we work on the floor. So we can use our body weight to offer pressure, and use several parts of our body such as hands/palms, thumbs, knuckles, elbows, fists, feet or knees. So we can always work in the best direction, with the best pressure, and using the optimal surface area so that we can manipulate tissues as necessary, without creating unnecessary pain sensations for the client, and without stressing any joints or muscle groups for the therapist. We also change positions frequently, and look into body dynamics in the training, so offering massage can be a healing experience for the therapist too, not just for the client. Almost like attending an easy yoga class, even though offering AYM is by no means a substitute for a yoga practice.

What’s the difference between Thai massage and Ayurvedic yoga massage?

Traditional Thai massage is given with the client fully clothed, so it’s not an oil massage. In AYM we can warm up and soften the soft tissues and promote circulation quicker through oil massage, and particularly with the use of calamus powder. Once the soft tissues are warmed up with the oil massage, we find that the stretches work better. This is the brilliance of AYM, and specifically of Kusum Modak who developed this method.

As a modality does AYM work with the nervous system and is it Trauma-Informed?

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage combines massage with tractions, mobilisations, rocking, and assisted stretches. Because it is dynamic we see where the body holds a lot tension, and we can work on getting the nervous system to release where we need it to with whichever tools seem to work best for each client. It's often nothing short of miraculous.

What do I wear or am I completely naked?

During the session, clients are typically undressed to their underwear and draped with soft cotton sheets called lungies. These sheets are continuously adjusted to ensure that the client remains covered at all times, with only the area being worked on exposed. Your comfort and modesty are always prioritised throughout the massage experience.

For anyone who is still wondering whether to book an Ayurvedic massage with Amanda, I can honestly say yesterdays was one of the best I’ve had - and I’ve had a few! Amanda is a tension seeking missile and soon found all the troublesome spots which weren’t necessarily where the actual symptoms had arisen. Not only was it a fabulous massage but all the senses were taken care of - Amanda has created a beautiful environment where you are cocooned in relaxing colours, scented oils, cosy linens and soothing sounds (she’s a flipping genius at the old soundtracks) and even laid on a Guinea fowl to serenade us from the garden - talk about going above and beyond!
It’s almost 24 hours later and I still feel totally nurtured and relaxed almost to the point of comatose - will definitely be going back for more! Thanks Amanda xx
I've always had a massage regularly as my job is quite hard on my back but this massage was different. So relaxing and revitalising. Physical and plenty of pressure but in a gentle guided way which works on the areas you need to concentrate on. The heated futon is so comfortable and Amanda put me at ease.
I've come home feeling different to my normal deep tissue massage I'm used to which normally leaves my feeling very tired. Instead I feel very relaxed and awake and energised.
I'm definitely going to book in again and can highly recommend you give it a try.
Originating from the Indian tradition, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) therapy is a comprehensive Dynamic Yogic Bodywork modality that combines elements of deep tissue massage therapy, yoga-based assisted stretching (passive yoga), and coordinated breath-work into one treatment.
... eliminate excess, purify, strengthen, and rejuvenate ...
Another post singing Amanda's praises after my massage last night. I have never felt so taken care of during a massage, it was an incredible experience. Amanda had clearly taken the time to research what would be beneficial for me, and explained the reasoning behind all the lotions and potions she had picked for me. The massage itself was lush and she definitely is a tension seeking missile, picking up on and releasing areas I didn't even know I was holding tension in. I felt so energised, but relaxed, afterwards and don't get me started on that futon. I could have happily stayed forever.
Just adding my feedback following others as I have just had my Ayurvedic massage with Amanda and it was amazing. She has released so much tension I can’t tell you and understanding where the tension was coming from was really interesting. Thank you Amanda, you are a genius, you have created a beautiful calm environment in your beautiful home - thank you.
