Intuitive, Rejuvenating, Transformational
“I think we could replace 90% of mainstream medicine with a weekly massage.” – Candace Pert, PHD
This blissful full body Ayurvedic herbal oil massage for women’s health, strength and beauty explores a personal connection to well-being, the inner goddess, cosmic life energy, body love and wisdom, divinity and purity of self, intuition and anything else that comes up and through this devotional self care package of three – five treatments that honour, recognize and celebrate Your Divine Feminine Nature.
Sheena’s Ayurvedic and intuitive approach to massage is performed with an awareness of the marmas and chakras. In Ayurveda, marmas are vital points similar to acupressure points. Marmas are points where the elemental life forces of ether, air, fire, water and earth converge and therefore where the body’s organizing intelligence is most concentrated.
The seven great marmas in Ayurvedic massage are the same as the chakras. According to Ayurveda, each chakra nourishes particular organs and controls various psycho-physiological aspects of our being. When they are blocked, physical disease ensues. Ayurvedic oil massage opens and cleanses these energy channels so the current can flow freely and our latent vitality is released.
Supportive input to the senses is also emphasized during the massage as our senses are the gateways to our biological and mental processes. The sense of touch is obviously employed but you will notice that the sense of smell, sight and hearing is also recruited in the healing process.

Why include massage therapy as part of your regular health care regime?
Old patterns of emotions are thought to be stored in the ganglion of the spinal cord and other parts of the autonomic nervous system. Massage therapy can perturb and alter the old patterns by activating these areas through touch, not only causing the relaxation response but instigating a flow of endorphins and other neuropeptides throughout the body.
My educated guess would be that the beneficial effects of massage on the body and the emotional state can even be strengthened when combined with the therapist talking; not necessarily during the massage, but before or after–as a way to help clients take part in visualizing their own state of well-being. In psychotherapy, as you know, the interaction of touch is not allowed and yet part of the point is to reach back into these old emotional patterns and deal with them. I believe that the release of these natural substances in the body through contact with the skin over time can affect many of those emotional patterns on a long-term basis.
