Deep Tissue Massage & Assisted Stretching
Call Out Treatments Available on Request.
Performed on the floor, an Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a unique therapy that combines Indian deep tissue massage techniques with assisted yoga stretches. Ayurvedic herbs and oils are massaged into your muscles, once they (and you) are suitably relaxed your body is then gently and safely stretched in co-ordination with deep breathing. Each therapy session is therefore both a relaxing deep tissue massage and also an invigorating yoga lesson which gives long lasting benefits for your body and soul.
About Ayurvedic Yoga Massage
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a modern style of massage that was developed in India, by Kusum Modak. She combined traditional Ayurvedic Massage techniques with her knowledge yoga postures and breathwork to create a modern holistic therapy that works to balance and restore your physical, mental and emotional energies.
Although I am currently only offering whole body 90 minute treatments, there are a variety of different techniques that I can choose from when creating a treatment. This means that within the framework of a whole body treatment, I am able to alter the treatment to suit your own personal needs or focus on a specific area of your body.
"Really good massage. I feel rested and invigorated all at the same time. Laurence is such a friendly guy. You won't be disappointed!!"Robyn
"After setting up and attending Play festival and teaching circus classes I was feeling aches and pains in lower back and thighs. Laurence booked me in at the festival and I had two 15 minute sessions. I was a bit nervous but Laurence put me at ease and stretched and soothed my aching muscles. It was brilliant and Laurence really knows his stuff! Hes also a really friendly guy. Thanks a lot Laurence!! Hope to see you at Play in 2019!!"Paul
"Laurie is a very gifted masseuse with healing hands. He is very attentive to each persons individual needs and he sits with you to discuss what you want from the massage and check in with your mind and body before he begins. He is an Ayurvedic massage therapist and uses his yoga training in his work, alternating between pressure applied with hands (and feet if you want it) and also moving your body into yogic stretches to get deep into the muscles. I leave everytime feeling refreshed and renewed and excited to come back again."Rosie
"I had an Ayurvedic yoga massage with Laurence and found it really beneficial. The assisted stretches were great and I felt much more flexible afterwards. The treatment was also very relaxing. I would thoroughly recommend."Greta
"I could not believe the difference following my first massage with Laurence. After suffering with a painful neck and shoulders for months I could finally get to sleep without an hour or two of trying to get comfortable. Subsequent visits have brought further improvements. I can now do more strenuous gardening without suffering afterwards, I feel more flexible and my posture seems better. Laurence is very friendly and relaxed and really puts you at ease. Highly recommended."Hilary

"Fantastic hip, leg and lower back work, felt very comfortable and at ease. Thanks Laurie."Jess
- "Thanks for a really amazing Yoga Massage. I feel relaxed and about two feet taller."Lindsey
"I do want to thank you for the amazing massage and yoga stretches experience. It was a great experience and one that I will repeat, soon."Martin
"I had never had a proper massage before visiting Laurence so I did not know what to expect. Well I have to say that the experience has been very uplifting and with guidance on breathing, stretching and flexibility, I am now dealing far more effectively with hitherto poor flexibility and the aches that previously were starting to bug me. So I have no hesitation in recommending Laurence for excellent massage therapy."Jonathon
Treatments are all 90 minutes full body. They work holistically to re balance and restore the energies of your body and are best suited to those who are healthy and looking for another way of deepening the connection to their body, and releasing stored physical and emotional tensions.
The unique deep tissue and physical manipulation techniques that I employ are aimed at relaxing and releasing tension from your muscles, bringing your body into correct physical alignment, improving your flexibility, and giving you complete physical and mental relaxation.
The session will be performed on a mat on the floor which allows free movement and flow. Sometimes walking techniques are included in the massage, however you will always be asked whether you are happy for this to be a part of your treatment or not.
I use pure Sesame Oil, but if you are allergic to Sesame an alternative oil will be provided. The treatment also uses powdered Calamus which is massaged into the body. Calamus is an ayurvedic herb, and is valued for its ability to relax and release muscular tension and for its calming effects.
How much does it cost?
My fee for a treatment is £95 , which includes the callout fee.
Where will it be?
I currently only offer call out treatments where I come to your home. You will need to make sure that you have a suitable floorspace in a room that is warm and free from distractions.
