More about the course:

The 5 day Ayurvedic Massage Therapies is Tri-Dosha’s unique programme that runs over 5 consecutive days.

Day 1: Covers the theory required to understand the physiology of Ayurvedic massage and Ayurvedic diagnosis

Days 2-5:  Covers the seven practical therapies required for those wishing to become a certified Ayurvedic massage therapist. Throughout the week, we work with the breath so that the nervous system can let go of stress and connect mind-body during facilitation. We use natural herbalised oils, powders (churna) and herbal compresses (bolus) to improve blood circulation and warm up the tissues intensifying the benefits of the massage which offers a cleansing and re-energising treatment.

The seven therapies include:

  • Head/Neck/Arm Treatment (shirobhyanga)
  • Full body with marma [vital] points (marma abhyanga)
  • Lower leg & foot treatment (padabhyanga)
  • Face massage with marma [vital] points (mukhabhyanga)
  • Warm oil poured onto the third eye (shirodhara)
  • Herbal compress massage (pinda sweda)
  • Detox scrub (udvartana)

More about each therapy

  1. Head/Neck/Arm Treatment (shirobhyanga

A deeply therapeutic caring treatment designed to nourish the scalp, and wash away tensions associated with migraine, headache and neck stiffness. It involves warm dosha-specific oils poured into the hair, aiding the nourishment of roots. While the indigenous herbs calm and revitalise the spirit, ancient massage techniques allow the body to surrender and enhance overall equilibrium.

Good for: stress; strain; migraine; hair condition.
Duration: 30 minutes.


  1. Full body with marma [vital] points (marma abhyanga)

An ancient therapy combining pressure to specific marma (vital) points all over the body and yogic stretches of all joints. The massage manipulates healthy flow of energy through the body’s junctions and nadis (pathways and channels), and delivery is personalised according to your needs.

Good for: relaxation, detoxification, fatigue, anxiety, nourishment to skin.
Duration: 60 minutes.


  1. Lower leg & foot treatment (padabhyanga)

Tri-Dosha’s Ayurvedic alternative to reflexology. Combining deeply therapeutic techniques to release energy blockages, improve circulation and restore tired calf muscles, the body is eased and energised. In addition, the soles of the feet are cleansed and nourished. Ideal as a preventative monthly maintenance therapy against the stresses of the modern world.

Good for: relaxation, vitality, blood circulation, mums-to-be, after a flight.
Duration: 30 minutes.


  1. Face massage with marma [vital] points (mukhabhyanga)

Working on the face, neck and head, mukhabhyanga is a remedial therapy where firm pressure lifts facial muscles, leaving a youthful and vibrant glow. By massaging marma points, the movements increase energy flow; stimulate blood flow and collagen, which helps to reduce problem lines.

Good for: physical and mental wellness (sattva), anti-ageing.
Duration: 30 minutes. Best taken: as a course of six.


  1. Warm oil poured onto the third eye (shirodhara)

Warm blended oil is gently poured in a slow rhythmic movement over the forehead marma (vital) point, also known as the third eye. Profoundly relaxing, this treatment works to switch off a chattering mind and induce deep rest for a renewed energy and calm that borders meditation. A facial or foot and leg treatment precedes the shirodhara.

Good for: relaxation; insomnia; tension; stress; chronic colds; vata imbalance.
Duration: 60 minutes.


  1. Herbal compress massage (pinda sweda)

Therapeutic Ayurvedic herbal powders are crushed in a traditional pestle and mortar and tied into a muslin cloth which forms the medium for this treatment, known in India as a bolus. After warming, oil is applied to the body using the bolus and an Ayurvedic technique known as pummelling. Extremely nourishing, strengthening and rejuvenating, this treatment is great for sports enthusiasts as it addresses problems relating to weak joints and sore muscles.

Good for: stiff joints and pains; arthritis; inflamed muscles; certain skin conditions.
Duration: 60 minutes.


  1. Detox scrub (udvartana)

A treatment that originated in India, this cleansing treatment uses specific ground Ayurvedic herbs which are vigorously rubbed over the body to help draw out impurities and reduce water retention. The natural ingredients also exfoliate, leaving lustre to the skin surface.

Good for: exfoliation; poor blood circulation; cellulite; kapha imbalance.
Duration: 30 minutes.
