Relaxing Ayurvedic Massage

Massage is a moment of receiving and deeply resting and relaxing not only the body, but also the mind. Avidanja offers a space which has a healing energy, that can help you to connect to yourself. Receiving massage is a way to let go of stress and let yourself sink into a deep meditative state and fully relax, it also improves digestion, circulation, metabolism and provokes release of tension.

Marma points

This massage is relaxing and at the same time stimulating. The stimulating aspect comes by pressuring Marma points which are energy points in the body and when pressed help to heal physically and mentally. During the 1h30 session many of them are worked on.

Sound Massage

We finish the session with a short intuitive sound massage while receiving a steam towel on the forehead. It allows to make a closure of the session and to integrate the massage, the sound of Tibetian singing bowl relaxes all the nervous system and the hot towel with aroma oils eases tension and makes a soft steam for the skin.
