The world of Ayurveda
Ayurveda (Sanskrit for knowledge/science of life) is a holistic medicine of Indian origin that has been around for more than 5000 years.
According to Ayurveda, each person has a particular physical, emotional and spiritual constitution (Prakruti) that distinguishes him or her from others.
Its foundations lie in the knowledge of vital energy (Prana) and the 5 elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth).
These principles are manifested in the body in the form of 3 different humours (Doshas): Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Inappropriate behaviour and poor dietary habits can lead to disturbances of the Doshas creating an imbalance (Vikruti) and an accumulation of undigested toxins (Amas) blocking the circulation of the body's channels (Srotas), thus causing disorders or diseases.
The aim of Ayurveda is to maintain the balance of the 3 Doshas in order to be in harmony, to have a preventive action against potential disorders and to give a meaning to one's life (knowledge of oneself and one's true deep nature).
Ayurveda proposes natural, gentle and intuitive methods such as diet, detoxification, yoga and breathing exercises, meditation, the use of herbal remedies and, of course, massage.
Massages are adapted to your constitution or imbalance (Vata, Pitta, Kapha).
*Traditional "Abhyanga" massage:
According to the Indian tradition, this body massage adapted to your Dosha is composed of smoothing, frictions, kneading and percussions to eliminate toxins, balance energies, nourish the skin and relax the body and mind.
*Ayurvedic massage "Intuitive":
This body massage is fully personalised, in terms of rhythm and pressure, and includes a Pranatherapy technique (a gentle and natural method of revitalisation by the hands).
It regulates the circulation of vital energy in the body (Prana) and allows for rapid revitalisation.
*Traditional massage "Kesa Mardana":
This traditional massage of the neck, skull and face helps to calm the mind as well as certain disorders (anxiety, stress, insomnia, coughs...) by bringing peace, energy and letting go.
*Traditional massage "Dosan Mardana":
This traditional massage of the back, shoulders and neck helps to alleviate stress, knots and muscular tension, emotional and energetic blockages fixed in the body.
*20 minute massage "Discovery of Ayurveda":
This intuitive Ayurvedic massage allows you to discover Indian massages, in a short and personalized way, with a pressure and a rhythm adapted to each person, to find peace and relaxation. Choice of body area: face, back, hands or feet.

My background :
As a beautician for more than 15 years and manager of a beauty institute for 12 years, I chose in 2020 to change my career path and make a new start.
Because I wanted to be more natural and to accompany others in a different way, compared to the services offered in beauty salons and spas, Ayurveda became obvious to me (thanks to the advice of a wise person who will recognize herself!): the fact of practising Ayurvedic treatments totally personalised for each individual, according to his or her body,
and rhythm of life, seemed to me perfectly adapted to my request.
Having some knowledge of this Indian medicine (I used to practice some "Ayurvedic inspired" massages), I decided to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner. I trained in wonderful massage techniques in different schools (Leela Centre, Sattva Centre), and I am also training as a Health Educator in Ayurveda (Gayaveda).
