At Pingala we offer a variety of different massage treatments to help with various conditions, from circulation to just relaxation. They are based on a number of different modalities including reflexology, shiatsu, energy flow, chakra alignment, lymphatic drainage and Ayurvedic abhyanga.
Our massage therapies, combined with energy work, can have a profound effect on health and well-being. At Pingala, we incorporate several different massage techniques:
Abhyanga - 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 good for a multitude of conditions, as well as general health maintenance.
Tuina - The stimulation of specific energy points and meridians to facilitate energy flow. This technique improves the flow of Qi to promote balance and harmony within the body using many of the same principles as acupuncture. It's similar to acupuncture in the way it targets specific acupoints, but uses fingers instead of needles to apply pressure to stimulate these points.
Reflexology - 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.
Body work through massage can have a profound effect on health and vitality; especially when combined with dietary changes and good exercise. Touch is both healing and nurturing, whether administered by yourself or by another.
