Sound therapy, also known as sonotherapy, is a form of mindfulness meditation using a range of Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls and other instruments with relaxing therapeutic effects.
The first objective of the sound treatment is to induce a state of deep relaxation and release, then comes body harmonization and the beneficial effects on physical tensions and nervous system disorders such as anxiety, insomnia and stress.
Thanks to its rich harmonic content, like a cocoon of sound, your whole being feels a change in its state of consciousness. Made up of 70% to 80% water, our bodies are very receptive to vibrations and sound waves that have many positive effects on our physical and mental well-being.
Your body is gently massaged by unique and enveloping frequencies that soothe and synchronise the body and mind.
It is a unique experience, a deep inner journey.
The sounds circulate throughout your body, releasing tension with a powerful relaxing effect.
The vibratory frequencies act on your body’s cells, liquids, meridians and energy channels.
Sound therapy is a very powerful tool, the effects of which may vary from person to person, but there are a few contraindications.
► Sound massage – inner peace guaranteed!
► Use of Tibetan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls and various other therapeutic sound instruments by our certified sound and energy therapy specialist
► Duration of the session: 90 minutes
► Frequency: Often, 3 to 4 sessions are needed to rebalance the body and help it better harness the vibrations that allow tensions and blockages to be released. However, profound and significant changes take place from the very first session.
This massage is based on the ancestral beliefs of traditional Indian medicine. Abhyanga Ayurvedic massage is generally practised using warm oil and helps to reach a state of deep relaxation.
Abhyanga is a synchronised body massage following the movements of the bloodstream. The scientific rationale is to increase blood circulation, nourish the extremities of the body and facilitate the heart’s work.
Abhyanga Ayurvedic massage is harmonising as it helps care for the body physically and thus ensures psychological well-being by facilitating the circulation of vital energy (prana). It acts on the body’s seven energy centres, known as chakras.
And is typically described as a massage that restores physical and spiritual harmony.
It can help prevent certain disorders and calm the body and mind as a whole.
The primary benefit of Abhyanga Ayurvedic massage is a feeling of deep relaxation. It also helps to lift your mood, reduce stress, limit the accumulation of toxins and even nourish the body.
Scientific observation of Ayurvedic massage has identified a non-exhaustive list of its benefits, including:
Abhyanga differs from other massages in that it systematically requires the use of oil to massage the body. Also, unlike other massages whose primary purpose is leisure and relaxation, Abhyanga is a therapeutic massage.

Chavutti Thirumal massage is performed on the floor, most often with the therapist standing on the person and using their feet.
Massage using the feet is both powerful and gentle, invigorating and relaxing.
The technique essentially aims to rebalance the vital energies or doshas in the body. The doshas are made up of three complementary energies known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
Foot pressure massage relaxes the deep muscles and walking over the body helps to expel deep-seated toxins.
Foot pressure therapy aims to maintain health by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system and relaxing the mind while also increasing ‘natural healing power’.
This Ayurvedic technique differs from others in that the therapist uses their feet to combine invigorating and relaxing movements to create a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
If there is a sensitive area, the therapist will spend time on it to try and release all the negative pressure that has built up.
The therapist’s mission is to restore the balance between vital energy and body energy.
