At Pingala we offer a variety of different massage therapies to help with various conditions, from circulation to just relaxation.
Our massage therapies, combined with energy work, can have a profound effect on health and well-being. We employ an intuitive approach, which can help you to heal and nurture your body, mind and spirit. At Pingala, we incorporate several different massage techniques depending on the individual:
A non-invasive, relaxing massage which uses oils, and is good for circulating energy, cleansing the lymphatic system, and healing and nurturing the whole body. Abhyanga is effective for a multitude of conditions, as well as general health maintenance and can be used anywhere on the body.
The stimulation of areas on the feet, hands and ears which relate to specific parts of the body. Reflexology uses pressure, and can be effective in promoting deep relaxation and well-being, as well as cleansing for the bodies systems and releasing tension.
Tuina ~ Shiatsu
Tuina/Shiatsu massage involves the stimulation of specific energy points and meridians to facilitate energy flow. This technique improves the flow of chi/ki/prana to promote balance and harmony within the body using many of the same principles as acupuncture. It is similar to acupuncture in the way it targets specific acupoints, but uses fingers instead of needles to apply pressure to stimulate these points.
Body work through massage can have a great effect on health and vitality; especially when combined with good diet, Yoga and meditation. Touch is both healing and nurturing, whether administered by yourself or another person.
We will speak to you about the most suitable treatment for you, and the benefits you would like to obtain.
