It is aprofoundly powerful approach which can be used on a wide variety of conditions and is suitable for all ages from babies and children to adults.

Laura practices Ayurvedic Massage and integrates the wisdom of her practice and teaching of Yoga Nidra.

Ayurvedic Massage

Laura Hancock

Ayurveda is an ancient science grounded in the Vedic scriptures from India, dating back to 3000 BC.  It literally means “life knowledge” and is considered to be yoga’s sister science.  It teaches us that we are all made up of a unique combination of three doshas – Vata, Kapha, Pitta, recognising that we must be treated in unique ways that are tailored to our individual imbalances.

Using this knowledge, the ayurvedic massage is tailored to the individual, using specially chosen heated oils and massage points. Some specific imbalances treated by Ayurvedic massage are:
Vata: insomnia, anxiety, sciatica, lower back pain
Pitta: hot flushes, migraine, acidity, anger, stress
Kapha: water retention, lethargy, sluggishness, weight gain.

For further information and to make an appointment in either Craniosacral Therapy or Ayurvedic Massage, please contact Penny & Laura directly:
