The Ayurvedic Massage is usually a full body massage however, Martin is very open to each clients preferences.
The other Ayurverdic treatments include; Shirodhara, which is used to relax the nervous system, and Vasti, a treatment for back pain and other areas needing relief from inflammation and pain.
