“Being a devotee of deep tissue massages, I was surprised how powerful these Ayurvedic techniques are. Loretta’s magical hands eased the stress and aches from my muscles, untangled long-term knots in my neck and shoulders and loosened tight calf muscles. Afterwards I felt both utterly relaxed and invigorated, and my skin felt deeply nourished from the warm fragrant organic oils.”

“I can easily say Loretta’s facials are the best I’ve ever had. My skin is glowing afterwards, I have very sensitive skin and it loved the simplicity of the products and the intensity of the massage. Loretta really makes the most of the 75 minute facial, when she’s not pampering the face, she’s massaging neck, shoulders, hands and feet!! I float out of there feeling super relaxed with skin that’s plumped and glowing and a few years younger!”

Pranic Energy Healing Hands-On (similar to Reiki)
A powerful treatment, working through blockages and the subtle energies of the body to remove tension, bringing a shift in energy, internal balance and deep peace. The healing used is similar to reiki but is hands–on, either combined with massage and oils or used on its own through clothes. Marma points are worked on to release stress, bringing about a deep sense or relaxation and letting go .

A very subtle yet powerfull treatment

Pinda Sweda: Heat & Herbal Bags
This specialised treatment involves deep tissue work on the whole body and the therapeutic application of heat with a warm muslin bag filled with Ayurvedic herbs. These bags are ‘warm herbal hands’ used with specific movements over the entire body or around particular joints, injuries or areas where pain, stiffness and immobility are held. The penetration of warmth into the body in winter is an excellent way to rejuvenate the muscles and aid physical health, deep relaxation and sleep. The herbs used and heat applied ease muscle and joint pain, address long-held tension, past injuries or trauma, reduce stiffness in the hamstrings, calf muscles and hips, loosen toxins, improve the circulation, release nerve pain and sciatica.

These bags can also be used during a deep tissue treatment and detox
