Bodywork

“My massages by Asrael over the years have been full of relaxation, pleasure and profound healing. Her gentle and grounded presence creates a safe place to explore and release emotional blocks. I have found her depth of knowledge of healing traditions and intuitive guidance to be immensely helpful to me during times of transition. Asrael’s loving touch is nurturing and restorative. I would absolutely recommend a blissful treatment by Asrael.”- (A.B. Cobble Hill, Canada)

All Ayurvedic Body Therapies are a beautiful way to connect with your deep self, at the same time nourishing and healing the physical body.  These sessions are an opportunity to go deep within to transform and integrate old patterns, emotions and ways of being.  They are also a wonderful way to support the body as you move through emotional or physical healing.  Each session is much more than a relaxation massage, it is an experience of deep connection.  One that begins with a warm foot wash and pulse reading, and unfolds in the way you need it most.  The services that you can choose from are described below.  They are available individually and in combination.  All of them offer an opportunity to experience deep relaxation, as well as powerful transformation.  

At this time Asrael is only accepting new clients for Ayurvedic Body Therapies as part of a committed healing process (package).  If you would like to explore how deeper and committed work can support your current healing goals, please call to setup a short initial consultation.

Abyhanga

Many people have never had an Ayurvedic Massage, it is a wonderful experience, one that heals the body on much more than just the physical.  It truly is transformative,  one of my clients calls it a “soul hug”

An Ayurvedic Massage balances your body, mind and spirit, while working on the subtle energy layers, allowing for tremendous healing, in a very comforting way. The session begins with warm organic medicinal oils poured onto the body.  The hands, feet and forehead are anointed, activating these marma points, encouraging release and flow. More warm oil, is poured onto the entire body, and massaged into the skin in long, firm, fluid, and rhythmic strokes.  These strokes activate the energy meridians (the nadi’s), clearing and allows prana to flow. There is special attention brought to the heart centre and the abdomen, supporting deep release and transformation.

The oil grounds the physical body, lubricating the tissues, and allowing any toxins in the cells, and from the energy body to move into the digestive system, and be released. Our bodies luxuriate in the oil, absorbing much of it. It’s warmth is comforting as it nourishes every cell in our body.  While giving the massage, our energies are attuned.  It’s a meditation, a dance and a flow; one where energy awakens, chakras balance, and healing can occur on deep levels. A massage that allows profound relaxation and at the same time allowing for restoration and rejuvenation. A heart opening experience of bringing balance to your being in blissful awareness.

Each session is an opportunity to transform, and includes pulse diagnosis, oils selected especially for your needs and time to relax and to integrate deep healing

Shirodara

Shirodara is a blissful 30 minute treatment that allows you to melt into a deep state of relaxation.  This treatment is a continuous flow (dhara) of warm oil onto your 3rd eye and forehead, allowing you to sink deeply into a peaceful state of being.  Often people share that they go into a dream state, or a peaceful altered state of consciousness.  It is like taking a deep rest, and allowing your subconscious being to release and to open.  Often intuitive guidance becomes stronger after a session, and deep peace is always experienced.  Shirodara is wonderful for balancing the emotions, removing stress, pacifying insomnia and depression, and bringing one into a happy, relaxed state of being.  Especially relieving after Abyhanga.

Chakra Treatments

Warm oil will help to create balance in a blocked chakra, allowing the energy to flow and to move out of its stagnant pattern.  A reservoir is built on the affected chakra and warm oil is placed in the reservoir allowing it to soak into the deep layers of the physical and the energetic.  This will lubricate the energy centres and allow for release and new flow.

Garshana

A refreshing and energizing exfoliating treatment.  This practice is invigorating, yet relaxing as the skin is gently stroked with silk gloves.  This removes dead skin cells, increases circulation, removes cellulite, and opens the pores, allowing for vitality and health to thrive.  This practice is beautiful before an Abyhanga Massage as it awakens the nerves, and cleanses the skin, allowing the oil to penetrate more deeply, and to relax the nervous system to an even greater effect.  Its also a beautiful treatment on its own.
