Potali Deep Tissue Treatment
Our treatment of the month for January is our warming Potali treatment, inspired by Ayurvedic healing traditions where heated herbal pouches – known as potlis – have long been used to rejuvenate, relax and nourish the body.
Used in massage, potli are traditionally stuffed with therapeutic herbs, then warmed up in medicated oils and gently pressed and pounded over the whole body – or specific areas such as the lower back, neck and joints – where they can relieve pain and inflammation, increase circulation, and heat up areas of muscle contraction and tension.
Ideal for anyone seeking greater mobility, flexibility and pain relief ila’s treatment really does effectively soothe away muscular fatigue. Exquisite A-grade essential oils, along with amber and frankincense, provide a cleansing and invigorating effect.
A fluid, rhythmic massage follows the pathways of ida & pingala (feminine & masculine energy) in the body promoting a greater sense of balance in your hormones, mood and energy levels – just what is needed at this time of year.
If you are keen to shift the old and make way for the new, soothe your nervous system, and nurture a palpable feeling of inner calm, this therapy is the ideal winter warmer.
