To allow a full range of movement and flow during stretching, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage treatment is performed on a mat laid on the floor, similar to Thai massage.
Each treatment is adjusted to suit clients' needs, whether that is relaxing, energising, soothing, deep or remedial.
The treatment is initiated with a sequence to warm up the body, which allows the session to become a moving meditation.
During the treatment, a mixture of oil and ayurvedic herb - Acorus calamus - in the form of powder, is applied to the skin.
Ground Acorus calamus, a root of wetland plant from the sweet flag family, stimulates the flow of blood, which not only helps to further warm up the muscles but also supports the body’s detoxing processes as well as giving a pleasant, warm, exfoliating feeling.
I was riddled with pain caused by acute sacroiliitis. After a 90 minute massage from Joanna, I felt like new, my posture improved, my body felt much lighter. The treatment was a perfect mix of relaxing deep-tissue massage and energising yoga stretches. Joanna might be small, but she is really strong! I was very happy to trust her and let her guide me through the treatment, she is a real expert. Oh, and the oil she uses smells heavenly! I can't recommend her enough, and I can't wait till my next treatment.
Jo is a healer. She came to my place and provided a wonderful atmosphere. She made me feel warm and loved and safe. She touches you with her energy and her everything. Truly a gift. Can't wait for the next time! ❤️
The most intuitive and gifted massage therapist you will find. She always knows exactly what my body needs and leaves me feeling nourished and nurtured. She is strong, knowledgable and a very lovely kind soul too!
What Joanna offers is not just a massage but an experience! Starting from creating a little oasis in your own home, the way she holds the space for you, these divinely aromatic oils she makes and the massage itself which is nothing I have ever experienced before! She is fully present and it can be felt. There is such a tremendous amount of care in her touch and the assisted yoga stretches make you feel a new level of openness and lightness - you feel renewed!
She also encourages you to set an intention before the treatment and to work with an affirmation.
This isn’t just any massage and she is a true blessing!
How often do you care for you and love yourself? How often do you do something just for you? We have been raised and programmed to give out but rarely know how to receive. When I forgot this and ignored all the signs of crying out for help my body was sending me, I turned to Jo. She was there to hold the space for me and remind me that I need to take care of myself otherwise there is nothing left to give. Jo creates a wonderful environment in the comfort of your home for that much needed self-care, self-love and self-preservation. Not only does she relive pain and anxiety from your body, but she does this at a deeper, spiritual level too. If you need some quality self-love, look no further.
Joanna's massage was very intuitive she applies the perfect pressure and finds areas of tension without needing to let her know. This means you can just relax and trust that she totally knows her business. I could tell she had excellent training and she loves her work. Her massage is a joy and leaves you feeling stress free and with a great feeling of wellbeing. I recommend her massage to anyone who is interested in having a massage from someone who really cares about what they do and about you.
It was my first experience of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage with Joanna and it was sensational. I felt nurtured and held from the moment the session started and this feeling carried through after the massage finished. The ways in which she slowly and consciously relaxed me deeper and deeper into the massage helped me access parts of feeling that I didn't know existed, all in a positive way. My body surrendered to her touch subconsciously knowing she was guiding me to health. I have received many massages in my life and none has touched my body and soul as deeply and healthily as Joanna has.
Thank you Joanna and thank you life for this experience.
I have been fortunate enough to be able to utilise Joanna's service for the past seven months. I have found it invaluable in managing both my insomnia and my anxiety, having many nourishing nights sleep as a direct result. Joanna is both widely experienced and highly emphatic.
I will continue to utilise her dedicated and compassionate skillset.
Hi Joanna, I just wanted to say thank you for the massage I received from you and wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your healing touch. I found the session extremely relaxing and very restorative. You were sensitive to my needs and seemed to instinctively know what my body needed in any given moment which allowed me to trust that I was in a safe pair of hands. Thank you once again.
